I'm trying to build a raised-bed garden and have already run 1/2" poly tubing to each bed. I'm also trying to use the soaker hose I already had on hand as much as possible. The soaker hose is 3/8", and I need to connect it to the poly tubing. The place where I bought the tubing sells adapters like these:
, but they were apparently meant for poly tubing, not soaker hoses with their thicker walls, which don't fit. The soaker hose, meanwhile, came with fittings such as these:
How do I go about connecting the two kinds of tubing? Is such a thing even done, and if so, is there an adapter for this, or what's the easiest way to do it? Thanks for any advice on this.
