90840 Drops of water in 1 Gallon, depending on who you ask, so just count the drops and do the math.

A 1/2 hose will move approx 840 GPH with normal city pressure. Drippers are rate in GPM or GPH. You do the math but I am going to stick my neck out and say you will be fine.

Well,I am confused.

Are you talking about the little water tubes with the lead weights that are used to water plants?

I'm talking about the 1/2" poly tubing you run 1/4" drip line off of to the plant and then attach various kinds of adjustable drippers or sprayers to the 1/4" line.

Mike a small barb is inserted into the 1/2" line and a 1/4" line runs to the emitter. Here is a picture of one.

I've got at least 30 drippers on one of mine going at 1 gal per hour each. It works fine and I wouldn't think twice about adding on to it.
