Re: Garden hose bursting
You should be able to install a pressure reducing device at the hose bib with little to no trouble. Drip irrigation systems need a steady, constant pressure to function properly, for that there are pressure reducing valves in varying ratings to do just that. You could put one of these at the hose bib. I'd start with the highest pressure you can find, probably somewhere around 50psi, and see how that goes.
