What dripper system were you looking at ? I got mine (Kingfisher) from Aldi for under a fiver and it does a great job.

The bottles are a good idea tho icon_thumleft

Need a timer and pressure reducer in order to the legit for hose-ban irrigation, assuming we get another of those in our lifetime!, and probably to be able to use it effectively whilst away on holiday :). If they were included in the Aldi-fiver deal we all need to form an orderly queue!
