Personally, I probably wouldn't buy this.

I've used drip irrigation for about 20 years in a city environment and here's a little bit of my experience:
1. different kits or vendors are not generally interchangeable. They might be, but I've used DIG and RainBird and found slight differences in the inner or outer diameter or piping that make the joints or drippers may not work between systems. You might get lucky, but today I only buy DIG (because it's what I have the most of)
2. Personally I never want soaker hoses or 1/4 pre-drilled lines (at least one of these kits is pre-drilled). These tend to water "an area" and seem to lose most of the benefit I think I'm getting or want from my setup. Also, if you have the pre-drilled lines, you'll need some additional non-laser drilled hose to get the supply to your planters or whatever.
3. I can't tell what / how many kinds of additional accessories are available from this vendor, but I very much think you're better off if you pick a platform where it's easy and fast to get a wide variety of replacement parts (1/2 and 1/4" poly tubing, elbow/tee/straight fittings for both sizes of tubing, drippers of different rates, sprinklers, goof plugs, etc).

The price is pretty good so this might work for someone, but you can probably go to a hardware store and get a brochure from the makers of one of these systems to plan out what you'll need. You probably also want a timer and probably a manifold for your water supply line, too.

I tried a similar set up with a 55 gal rain barrel and my results were less than desirable.
The drip line needed more water pressure than just the gravity flow would allow so the water flow was extremely slow to non-existent. I would think a 20 gal tote would be even worse.

It looks like Home Depot sells this brand at least

Since all three of these kits are from the same manufacturer, I'm thinking you can mix and match for what suits you. I grabbed all 3 for $23.93. The coupon seems to apply to all three for me.

Any chance you can hook these up to a pump on a timer so you can use a 20 gal tote to water while you're away?

That's how they're designed to be used.

I'm not sure how successful this would be without a valve/manifold array and a control panel. We have an urban roof garden and use primarily Netafim parts. Maybe you could get it to work with pressure delivered from the street source but the way it works in our urban environment is: you establish the number of zones you want, install one valve for each, run telephone type wire from valve to control panel (computer), run drip lines from 1/2 inch supply lines, select appropriate drip heads for needs, then program each zone. It's easy to make adjustments and requires minimal attention. The guy who helped set it up had worked on many high end roof gardens.

The Elgo 2-in-1 seems to have everything you need for a garden hose setup. I'm not sure why you would want to cut up you garden hose though. Unless you just don't want to buy some 1/2 inch main supply line. Alternatively I guess this is for an old hose that you want want to use anymore?

Thanks! Bought one of each kind. Have no idea why so many other manufactures charge a fortune for this kind of stuff! Now I just need to find some potted plant irrigation ends to auto water outside potted plants...

Switched to a water timer about a month ago. Makes life so much easier and saves water. They cost a bit more than this, but worth it.
