I'm installing a drip system in a shrub bed against my house. I have a sprinkler zone plumbed into the bed, so all I have to do is hook up the 1/2" poly tube and start installing emitters.

The water is very hard. So much that it leaves white residue on siding, fences, etc. Looking for an emitter design that is less likely to clog in this setup.

Also, should I use a pressure regulator for this zone? The system is being fed directly from the well pump - no holding tank or anything like that.

Any other advice is more than welcome! I've never done this before.
