The blue strip is friction fitted. As long as you use a 1/4" drill bit, and are careful when drilling, and you use Toro brand blue stripe drip line, you should be able to push the drip line through the hole. I've had mine for over 1 1/2 yrs now, and never had a problem with any of the lines coming off.
Next, we take ¼” Toro Blue Stripe drip line, and cut into ½” pieces. We insert a piece into each hole of the copper pipe.how fix this little toro blue stripe?... with glue or what=? thak you
yes. its metal. all metal. i have problems with pipe
Are you referring to the 1/4" drip line? If so, those are just friction fitted into the holes. If you're using a different brand of dip line, it may be thinner or thicker than the Toro brand, so you'll have to experiment with the hole size.
this part ? Solder the connections. Note that we placed a rag soaked in cold water on the pipe, a few inches from the connection. This keeps the pipe cool enough to prevent damage to the wood while soldering. Next, we take ¼” Toro Blue Stripe drip line, and cut into ½” pieces. We insert a piece into each hole of the copper pipe. This is important, because the tubing causes the water to flow straight down. Without it, the water will flow in uneven directions. how you put the little parts of pipe of glow, with? superglue loctite? or something do you have mopre photos of this part? thank you.
do you have photos, of the fountain part? i cant make well do you have mail i sent the video.
No, i was made in metall and painted oxid.
Did you make yours out of wood also? or is that metal? I'm thinking of making mine from box tubes and wrapping in copper flashing. Curious what you ended up with.
Is the drip line in the 1/4" holes just chunks of regular drip line? Since your design is pressured, do you have issues with them popping out? To get a drip effect, do you regulate the flow down until it changes from stream to drip? Is the rate of flow consistent across the entire span? I was going to go with a three row, gravity fed design and have wondered about the drip hole size.
I am trying to decide what size pump to buy. Do you know what the flow rate is on the pump you have? I don't want to get an underpowered pump and not get the right effect
I'm not sure if anyone threw this idea out there or not but if you set up a strobe light focused on the droplets in motion , you will be able to "control" the direction and speed of the droplets. well, visually anyways . thanks for your post
