found this from a link from one of our posters from W Aus.
Some great ideas in here, like the drywall screw drippers !

i'd love to know how well the wood screws work as emitters,neat idea but i bet theres a lot of tweaking. flag emitters are only about 12-15 cents,but it all adds up ,i'll need about a thousand or more... i plan on doing a system like this for my raised and ground beds, hooked up to our rain gutters. realize their focus is 3rd-world situations

heres another group that does essentially the same charity work and same drip system

If you have hard water, or are burying the drip for UV and heat purposes, the screws are easy to back out to clean the opening, and can adjust how much each plant gets without having to have multiple emitters.

would def take some tweaking, but is lowest tech solution i have seen, and no extension tubing needed.

Now the gutters, with an aerial wire , hose distribution to buckets sys would be awesome !
 
I agree. Here's the link: https://richsoil.com/wood-heat.jsp
