Customer Questions & Answers

minimum pressure requirement?

I am planning to use this fed from a rain barrel. The pressure will obviously be much lower then a traditional 40-60 psi incoming water supply. Will the weak pressure still be enough to permeate the hose?
Asked by: Michael
It depends on the conditions. The best way is try some low pressure and find our your required soaker condition. Never try 40-60 psi for a long time it may rapture. As the price is low do not trust what is claimed.

I purchased two of these today. I came home and hooked them up at two locations and turned on the water. It began to bubble out at the start of the hose. I came back 45 minutes later and only about one half of the hose had water bubbling out if it the last halves were dry. I took off the end cap and no water was flowing out of the end of either hose. I'm on level ground. Is this the way they work only half of the hose flows water? What did I do wrong? All your reviews suggest that these are great products I'm a little baffled. Is there a secret to getting even water flow out the entire length of the hose or not?

3/8 in. Dia x 50 ft. Soaker Water Hose is rated 1.4 out of 5 by 26.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Why oh why did I not read the reviews before buying this. It was such a waste of money. Of cour... Why oh why did I not read the reviews before buying this. It was such a waste of money. Of course I threw away all the packaging such as it is so probably can't return it. I'll check the reviews next time. I highly recommend you find another soaker hose and NEVER buy this. I tend to trust the name MiracleGro but now I am wavering in that support.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy!!! Bought four hoses and three were bad. All leaked from the connection point. Two did not sweat. One had a burst in it from the very first try. The fourth who knows??? By then I decided to not even bother trying. TOTAL GARBAGE!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless Purchased 3 of these, thinking the brand would ensure good performance. They will be returned. After 3 hours of a wide open faucet, no benefit that I could see, as in a bit of moisture on the hose only, nothing on the ground. Changed out to yet another like it, exact same results. VERY disheartening and disappointing product. Can not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Look for an actual hose manufacturer I tried two of these, exchanging the first failed product. Same result: water shoots out the first foot of hose, little or no water out the rest of the hose. HD should not carry this product. (LOVE MiracleGro fertilizer.)

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works for me I'm not sure why all the bad reviews. I have 850 feet in my vegetable garden and looking to add another 450'. Only one 50' section had 2 spots that sprayed a 2' stream but electrical tape took care of that, therefore 4 stars. It sure saves on water.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Ditto junk I didn't think about reading a review on a soaker hose. Junk. Several hundred feet of this junk I should have tested. Maybe a way to force you to upgrade to a drip system. Which I will now do because this is junk. Did I mention it's junk? If not, it's junk. No wonder last year my plants didn't do well. Is there a 0 stars? I don't even write reviews.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from soaker hose burst I have purchase several of these Gilmour soaker hoses and all of them have been defective. Past soaker hoses I have purchased came with a small pressure regulator disk, but these hoses did not have one. Instead, in very tiny print on the back of the label, they said the hoses are rated to 60 psi. The first hose I tried promptly burst when I turned the water on. On inspection I found a 3-inch gash at the far end of the hose, which I assumed had been there all along. The second hose I tried started bulging to about twice its diameter at the far end. I turned the water off and made my own pressure regulator disk, but when the hole in the disk was small the water only seeped out of the two ends of the soaker hose -- not out of the middle. When the hole was larger the far end of the hose bulged. I was never able to get the hose to where water seeped out throughout its length. (This, by the way, was on flat ground.) As I gradually increased the water pressure -- waiting 5 - 10 minutes between increases -- the hose eventually burst. The water never seeped out of the full length of the hose. I contacted Gilmour customer support 3 weeks ago to find out what the problem was but have not heard back from them. I would not recommend buying this product.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from don't waste your time and water Floods the garden in the first five feet of hose, slows to a trickle within 15 feet and no water at all beyond that. Poorly made and a terrible use of time and water.
