My initial idea was just to use thin irrigation pipe with small holes drilled into it as drip irrigation, but most sources online caution against doing this because it gives an inconsistent spread of water and recommend using emitters that control the flow at the drip point. My issue with these is that the water will be dirty (which may clog the emitters) and low pressure. Does anyone have any experience building a setup like this, and what did you find worked best? I'm hoping to learn from others success/failures if I can. Thanks.
I've attached a photo I took tonight, sorry for the poor quality but it was getting dark. Hopefully you get an idea. You can see the ducks impatiently waiting for the tub to refill.
