Put some wall blocks or bricks underneath each foot of the tub to hold them in place and level. Punch a hole in the half-inch tube, then plug in the plastic connector, and attach the quarter-inch black tubing. Run the tubing up the drain hole before placing a rock over the hole to keep the dirt from clogging it, then connect the tubing to the drip tubing with an on/off plastic connector.
