Default what size PVC pipe is good for tomatoes

Hi!
I am VERY new to the hydroponic game, and I am thinking of getting a PVC pipe for a drip system,
I may have to put it on the roof if my Wife has any thing to say about it. My question is, what size
PVC pipe is good for tomatoes? How big should I cut the holes? and how is the best way to cut
them with, a elect. jig saw? How often should the holes be and how far apart?
Thanks very much for your help

Hi Greg
You can use 1 1/2" up to 4" pvc pipe for a drip garden.
I like 4" sewer pipe because it's cheep and flexible and easier to drill holes for the bleach bottles.
Use a 1 1/4" hole saw to make the holes at least 18" apart because tomato plants can grow up to 15 feet.
