Customer Questions & Answers

Can multiple hoses be connected to water around the home?

I bought 3 50 ft soaker hoses. They have what looks like a blue washer with a tiny pinhole in it. Should that be removed when using 2-50 ft hoses? The water has been on for 45 minutes and no water is coming out the majority of the 2nd 50 ft hose.
Asked by: Carol
yes, you need to get a joiner (not sure what it is called), Dig might have it, I had ones left over from an old drip irrigation kit and joined it with a 1/4 solid hose. or search for this on the web: Orbit 69500 92-Piece Drip Irrigation Assortment Kit it is the bottom right box piece that'll do it, everything else is gravy

Can this be used with an outlet manifold for an automated sprinkler system. To make the drip system automatic and convenient?

I'm looking at installing a drip system. I have automatic sprinklers that are wildly inefficient and I'd like to water more efficiently. I'm converting a lawn area to large vegetable beds and would like to also fix the watering situation at the same time.
Asked by: Kara
Sure, as long as you size the outputs to the hose properly. Also I would recommend a pressure regulator for drip lines. You will also want to test this for several days to ensure the output you hope to get. These small soaker hoses do not put out a lot of water, even over an hour or more. Good luck!

can this porous soaker hose be placed underground about 1-1/2 inches in grass?

Asked by: bill
Depends. Your question asks about two places: underground - can be done, but only if the ground around the tube is open and porous. 1-1/2 inches down in grass - perfect, shielded from the elements but open for the tube to drain. Remember this hose is porous, so it sweats the water out through the OD of the tube. If its clogged with dirt because its packed underground it wont work.

How long should I run the soaker to water my roses

Asked by: Duke1944
Suggest you test out your conditions and how much saturation you get in 30 mins. Then add time to that. You shouldn't expect a lot of volume in a short period of time. It all depends on what you want the watering to be.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Useful for Rain barrel applications I have 300 gallon totes where I store rainwater off the house, that I then transfer via pump to the totes in the garden. From the totes in the garden, I connect the hoses and run them to the various drip systems that I have. For the last 3 years, I have had this 1/4" soaker hoses looped around my blueberry bushes and they have worked like a charm. I run the trunk line at the edge of the row, then ran 1/4" hoses to get it close to the right bush, then used a T barb to connect these little soakers around each bush (about 12"-14" circle around the base of the plant. When i am ready to water, I connect the hose from the rain barrel to the end of the main line and let it run. I have one of those mechanical timers that will shut off the water so I don't have to stand around and wait for it. Before I did that, I have forgotten to turn it off and emptied the entire 300 gallons on the bushes. I have 20 bushes in this row and the row is approximately 40' in length. I bought this system so I did not have to stand at each of my raised beds and water. I can just turn the hoses on a set amount of time, and let them run. When the water in the tote gets down to 50 gallons or so, the water pressure is less, so it is a slower drip, but I have drained the barrels so I know it will eventually soak through even with less pressure. I have never used these from an actual house spicket, so I can't say how they work that way, (if I need water in the garden in drier periods and my rain barrels are empty, I will put water in rain barrels rather than hooking it up to the driplines just so I don't have to stand out there and watch it)... but my way works great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Makes a great air stone too I use some 1/4" barbed fittings and make a air stone with this hose so it gets air to the roots and potted plants grow better....

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good concept, does not last. If you purchase this, definitely keep it under mulch and out of the sun. I've had moderate success with it this way. I still had problems with consistent flow over the whole length of tubing. Lots of water came out right where it connected to my 1/2" main line, a hefty amount came out in the first few feet, but then it left a lot to be desired for the rest of the length. If you leave this exposed to the sun and air, it will not last. Mine is dried out and cracking (as in snapping into pieces) after 2 years. For instance, I cut a broken part off and tried to reattach it only to have the intact piece crack and crumble too. Save your money and buy the laser-cut 1/4" tubing instead. Look for the ones with backflow preventers built into every perforation. Those have been significantly more effective as well as long lasting for me.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Ideal for raised bed vegetable gardens... I used the drip soaker at my previous home for my vegetable garden and had terrific results, so when I moved and did it all over again, this was my "go to" product. This method of watering puts most of the water in the soil and not on the leaves. Also, it does not disturb the soil as much as sprinklers do so the seeds aren't moved around and roots develop more quickly.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Slow and uneven watering Let out about half a gallon of water in 30 minutes at 35 pounds of water pressure. Unusable.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must install correctly This product is great for delivering water flow to plants in a planter bed when used in short legs attached to 1/2 inch tubing by connectors. Lower water pressure is actually better than high pressure. Sure, it isn't as easy as just laying down the hose and being done with it but it will deliver water to every plant instead of just at the beginning of the hose. It is also specified that it is supposed to be covered in dirt or mulch - not left bare so that would solve the exposure problem folks are talking about.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasted effort I purchased six 50 foot lengths to irrigate flower beds along the sides of my front yard. The system was configured with a 25 PSI pressure regulator (p/n D46P) as specified by the manufacturer. Each 50 foot length of soaker hose (p/n PSH50) was cut into 12.5 foot lengths (manufacturer recommends maximum lengths of 15 feet) and connected to a full flow manifold. Only one 50 foot length of this soaker hose performed as expected. I have replaced the soaker hose with a system of 0.5 GPH button drippers (p/n WL0510B & W2205A) at greater expense, but it works well and keeps the flowers and rose bushes well hydrated. Inconsistent quality seems to be the biggest problem with the soaker hose. The manufacturer needs to quality check each batch of hose that it produces before sending it to distributors. Unfortunately, the consumer is the quality control entity.
