If you enjoy growing tomatoes in pots or other small planters, this special collection of Rain Bird drip watering products will make it easy to keep your mini-gardens thriving. Complete kit installs in minutes, requiring only a pair of scissors to cut tubing in lengths to reach from the outside hose bibb to your containers. The tubing pieces are joined with tees and routed to each of 4 bubblers that you stake near the plants.
Fine-tune moisture in each container by turning the bubbler cap, adjusting flow from 0 to 13 GPH, 0 to 3 ft watering radius. Start with lower flow and watering duration for new plants, gradually increasing it as plants grow and begin producing tomatoes.
The set includes extra tees to allow expanding water coverage with additional Rain Bird drip devices (available separately). Maximum recommended length of tubing run from a single faucet: 33 ft.

Suggested Watering Time Per Week
Times shown are based on well composted potting soil with average consistency and drainage.
15 Min. – Small Container
30 Min. – Medium Container
60 Min. – Large Container
Note: The bubbler in this example is adjusted to 6 gph. The goal is slow, deep watering for root development. Stop when water begins to seep out of the bottom holes in the container. Repeat when the top two inches of the soil are dry.
