I purchased this product for use in my greenhouse, more particularly to provide an even supply of water for my tomatoes in grow bags. You need to ensure the water bag is very firmly attached before filling. Mine fell off first time and soaked me but fortunately, didn't burst the bag itself. I have devised my own, more secure fixing. Although very simple to assemble, setting the drip rate is a frustrating job and you really need to ensure the bag is at least half full to maintain the drip rate. I have checked the nozzles twice daily so far and it remains to be seen how well this will function when the greenhouse hots up in sunny weather. I also found it virtually impossible to keep the nozzles in place and have used my own net pegs to secure the line.
but beware that you have to be careful using the connector to hold it up in the greenhouse - when full of water the bag is very heavy - it then slips down and if you're me, it rips open. The drippers are also difficult to set at the right drip rate and it varies as the bag empties so you have to check every day.
This is a substantial product made with quality materials which was easy to set up to meet my exact needs. Just be careful not to inadvertently alter the drip valves after setting. Special bag retaining clips worked very well in the greenhouse.

Very simple design with a large plastic bag that can hold up to 10.5 litres of water. The tubing connects to the bottom of the bag and has a maximum length of 5 metres. Six drippers are supplied, which you connect by cutting and fixing to the tube, the end is terminated with a bung. You can't go away for too long, but a willing neighbour may just prefer to fill the bag rather walk around your plants every other day. It only waters up to six plants so you may need a couple if you have lots to provide for. No batteries, no taps is a plus.
