Drip and PE tubeing

Hi everyone,

Thinking about installing a DIG system for potted plants on our porch. Instead of black PE 1/4" can I use a clear tubing?

I can't see why not but no one has ever asked me that before.
Never thought of it.

I'd try it but I've been known to learn the hard way.

Any other opinions out there?

Figure clear tubing will deteriorate and need replacing at regular intervals.

That would be ok. I can replace yearly easy enough. Thanks I'll think I'll do it.

drip and pe tubing

the clear tubing doesnot like uv light (turns yellow and then cloudy then cracks ) the brown pipe is the best for dripline (hides easily in mulch)
