All i done was bought a small pump with a metre head and conected it to a micro bore irrigation system, worked out at about £15 the lot, and used to do my tote grow boxes bang on, only used them until the roots were in the nutes. But if your growing in coco and It's the only feed there getting you will probably need a bigger pump mate.

maxijet 1000 will do the job, very very reliable pumps, mine was connected up to my chiller for  over 3 years, on constantly, only stopped to clean it every couple of months.

they do a 500 version as well. I think they are called newa jet these days. I used a 500 with my chiller last run.

depends how high it needs to be pumped and how long a distance. id go with the 1000 personally, and restrict it with a inline valve if needed.

hi forest i have played with most of the commercial made drippers over the years and found what works best for me in coco is the standard cheap irrigation pipe and simply make rings with holes at 4mm 2 cm apart and this gives a nice steady fast flood with great "piston effect" as it drains it drags fresh clean air through the coco mine was set for 4 1 min runs in 24 hours and kept them sweet if you can keep up with filling the ever emptying res!mines only 20ltr though adequate for a drobe for about 3-5 days if i go away i cut to 2 x1min runs in 24 hrs that gives me 5 days at a time,good luck
