If your line chewers are rabbits or rodents, you can give them water as
Bill suggests. I have used bowls, such as dog water bowls, set into
the ground at the ends of drip tape runs. If you use auto drain
valves, they will supply enough water to the bowls. If not, you can
install an emitter for each bowl. That's not a cure, but it will
I've gotten stories from all over central Texas of wells going dry. I
look forward to next year's complaints of too much water.
