    We were away a lot this summer and this system watered the garden on a timer all season! It released the perfect amount of water and was very easy to set up, even on pots outside of the beds. We bought another system for the deck next summer.

        Don't waste your money It is a great idea. I purchased 2 sets before a vacation and put it together a couple of days before. I went to turn it on before we left and all of the micro fittings blew off they are too short. It took my husband and I over an hour to fix it with zip ties, and screws to keep the micro fittings on the tubing. I'm just glad we were driving on our trip so we had to time. I really wish I could give it a negative rating because I would.

            I combined a landscape drip system and a potted plant drip system to water my roses surrounding my patio. I also bought a manual timer. The systems all work together and work wonderfully!!

              The product is definitely helpful, but I was disappointed because the connections pop off due to the pressure inside the hose. I had to crazy glue all of the connections which has done the trick, but now I am unable to change the configuration if I needed to.

              Comments about : Snip-n-Drip Pot and Planter Soaker System:

              I gave the product a 4-star, because it is a well-thought out product, that's easy to assemble, with clear instructions and can be linked to another set for watering up to 10 pots. I would have given the product a 5-star rating, but for the problem I had with the hose (included with product) slipping off the micro T 1/2" adapters at one connection point, or another, every time I watered. At first I thought it was because the hose had heated up making the connection not as tight, but I have the whole system connected to a timer and it was happening during the 5 a.m. watering before sunrise. I had the micro T 1/2" adapters firmly connected to the hose sections, and fiddled with water pressure, both at the spigot and at the water stop flow adapter (included with product), all to no avail. What I did to fix the problem was to buy 20 1/2" plumbing clamps from the local "big hardware chain store" and fit 2 of them over each of the micro T 1/2" adapters and tightened them down firmly, but carefully, so as not to break the adapter. Perfect solution, no more hose slipping off, but an additional $15 to get the product to work properly. I have two of these products connected for a total of 10 pots, and have those pots, and my VegTrug set up to a timer to water twice daily and I'm very happy with the results (see photos - and yes, we can grow in the high desert of SoCal!!!). I can't be the only one who's had this problem, so I hope this review helps anyone having the same problem and also hopeful that Gardener's will fix the issue.

              This is very easy to use and create but the water hose pops off the connectors very easily. I have to be very careful with my water pressure. I plan to get the ring clamps to make the seal a little stronger.

                I've bought this several times starting last year. I use a timer that has a pressure value, so I reduce the water pressure. I carefully put everything together, which takes some strength. The pieces that don't have screw connections (most of them) just blow off! I take care to run it at 5am when it's coolest, but there's nothing I can do to overcome constant repair and frustration. Too bad! Great idea!

                Love it. I was able to hide all of the hoses under the deck. It works just like I imagined.
