    Good video. However, if I were doing this I would be using a pvc pipe cutter or manual saw or be wearing eye protection and setting the pipe down if I were using a circ saw like you were. Second, I would put together the extension pipe first including the riser to the bubbler and not glue anything yet. The problem with gluing that elbow like you did is if you got the outlet angle wrong the next pipe may be pointing up or down and not level. Once you have dry-fitted everything correctly then I would glue all the extension parts first and connect and glue it to the existing pipe last.

    Do you find its better to have water near the trunk or is it better to have the roots grab it or is water conservation your going for? I been told young trees need water directly near them but as they get older they seek it out and should survive on there on not sure that's is so for sub tropical climate fruit trees.

    Wrong tool used to cut the PVC. Wrong placement of new bubbler. Incorrect gluing technique. Woof.

    Why are you using pvc instead of drip line?

    Whoa….the most unsafe video I have watched in a while…. Why not use a simple hacksaw to cut the pvc? An AC powered circular saw is not fit for use, especially in a wet environment when no PPE is being used either!

    Too young to have learned that injuries and scar tissue are cumulative! They heal at twenty but pop up again at fifty!
    But otherwise a good narrative.

    I have heard that watering trees should be done around the drip line of the tree, not close to the trunk. The water then goes down to where the roots are, below the drip line..

    If I'm hooking a bubbler to a sprinkler head and not a main line, will I still need a pressure regulator? I'm changing out my drip manifolds bc my fruit trees need way more water than my roses and right now everything is on drip and there are lines running everywhere. It's going to be fun trying to bury them bc I've weed blocker munched over everything already. The other option was to do a circle using poly and just puncture holes but I can't tell which gives more water. I'm assuk9king the bubbler bc there's no pressure regulator and it's pouring out like that. I guess the question is if I want to leave the sprinkler on longer and stick with drip or if u wanna dig it all up and use a bubbler. Any tips, guys?

    Mimosa trees look just like poinciana trees but are cold hardy to -5F and are drought tolerant. Mimosa trees flower more too.

    Just a little tip on putting the pvc together. To get a sure seal and to make it easier to join the parts it is good to put the glue on both surfaces to be joined.

    why not use multiple drip lines instead? That seems like only one part of the root system will be watered. How do you determine how much water to use on your fruit trees in AZ??? Great vids !!

    not the best way to do it if u don't want any licks, but they have the idea.

    Drip line safe water and you can put 4 or 5 around each tree, so that's enough to give water to the roots and not to the trunk.

    Question: "drip methods could harm trees"? I understand how the bubbler is more sufficient than drip irrigation when trees require more water – is that all you meant by this statement? Or is there other reasons you feel drip methods do harm?
