Thank you for your question.

Did you have your drip system professionally installed?

YES we did have our drip system professionally installed. Only the 2 Honey Locusts have 3 emitters each, putting out ONLY 2 gals/emitter/hour. All the rest have only 2 emitters, each one puts out only 2gals/hr. I having the professional installer change all the emitters to 5 gals/he emitters.

Thank you.
Do you have a question for us? I think you know and explained how much water is being administered. We were going to suggest you call your installer for water setting information.
