If you are diligent about taking it up and winding it back on a spool you can easily get two years use out of it. At least that’s the case with the tape I use. I will admit though that I don’t always get mine out of the garden in a timely fashion and a lot of times mine is so overgrown with weeds that I break it taking it up. It only costs about 3 cents per ft so I really don’t get two concerned about reusing it. I do always save and reuse my main line that the tape tees off of and all my fittings. My garden typically has 20 rows 100 ft long so I use about 60 dollars worth of drip tape per year. The 2-3 hours of my time taking it up and rolling it back on a spool aren’t worth it to me
