Portable Kit With Built-in Organizer Includes Over 100 Universal Water-Saving Drip Irrigation Parts, Tubing, Trouble Shooting Guide and Installation Tool

AZUSA, CALIF. - (May 3, 2013) – Helping to maximize the efficiency of landscape water use this season, Rain Bird's new Drip Repair and Expansion Kit gives do-it-yourself gardeners the necessary parts, tools, guidance and know-how needed to tune-up or expand an existing drip irrigation system into new areas of the landscape.

Packaged in a unique, easy to carry bucket with a built-in parts organizer, the all-in-one kit comes complete with 112 professional grade universal drip items including tees, couplings, plugs, stakes, a faucet adapter, 40 pressure compensating emitters (0.5 GPH, 1.0GPH and 2.0GPH) and 250 feet of 1/4 inch tubing in a portable storage dispenser that prevents tangling and allows for easy retrieval of the exact amount of tubing needed for each job.
