So again we are going to flush this out while it is open on the end, wiggle it, anything comes out and we turn that off. Our drip tape, there are products you could buy to close it, but you can also just tie a knot in it and pull it tight. If it leaks a little bit that is alright because that is what you want it to do. Lay this out in the garden. Now the drip tape is a low pressure, so you will want to turn it on and either get a pressure reducer to ten pounds pressure or what I do is just turn my valve on slightly a little less. And you just want it dripping very slowly. And again the point is to deliver water over a long period of time and this will enable you to water while you are doing something else. A great time saver.
