• 4 parts (in this order): a backflow preventer, a big filter (needs to be cleaned out every few weeks), a pressure reducer thing, and finally an adapter to go from garden hose size down to a seal on the 1/2 inch plastic hose.
  • automatic timer
  • 100 feet of main 1/2 inch plastic hose
  • 25 feet of 1/4 inch microtubing rubber hose
  • stakes for pounding the big hose into the ground
  • only tools you need -- a pair of garden snips for cutting the hose and a mallet or hammer for the stakes.
  • various drip heads
  • various connectors
  • converter for the faucet, to turn it into a double faucet (one for this system, one for the existing garden hose)
