Drip Irrigation Parts

Q: My 86-year-old father lives in rural Georgia and he asked me to look for information on ordering drip irrigation parts. He says he needs an emitter.

A: Drip irrigation is a terrific way to water a garden. You run plastic tubes down the rows and use small plastic emitters to drip water to the plant roots. I found a great explanation of how to set up a system at https://hgic.clemson.edu/factsheet/landscape-irrigation-equipment-part-2-drip-irrigation/. I’ve seen kits and emitters at home supply stores.
