Drip emitters

I bought some drip emitters from Amazon the other day.  I got flag emitters since they supposedly work with low pressure systems.  From what I've read, most emitters require 20-30 psi to work.  I plugged the emitters into the existing holes in the tubing and they seemed to work just fine.  They do slow the flow of the water and it appeared to be more evenly distributed.

Now that I've figured out that drip emitters are the way to go, I added tubing to a second bed. 
I probably should have put the tubing in first.  Since it comes on a coil it wants to bend and twist around.  The plants in all of my beds are still tiny.  I have to be real careful not to damage them when placing the tubing.
