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.

Answer: 
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

Answer: 
only the barb connectors for the water flow should be in the first hose, the second connected to the first and a plug on the opposite end. If your looking for reasonable water flow from this product you will be disappointed. The material being like a sponge will fill with dirt and clog. It should only be used for spots requiring little water and you have lots of time.

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.

Answer: 
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!

Answer: 
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.

Answer: 
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 3.4 out of 5 by 43 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 31, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Straight Cuts Equals Satisfaction With Product! This is a very good product! The critical key to success with it is to make a good straight cut each and every time. Failure to do so will result in a weak rim around the connector that will tear after a few days. July 26, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by So tempting, but not worth it It is an awesome product in theory - it is exactly what I want - but in reality, the hose clogs very quickly and stops emitting water. Within 2 weeks it was no longer functioning properly, clogged with calcium deposits from our city water. If I pick up the hose and bend it all around, it breaks up some of the deposits for a day or two, but then it clogs right back up. I've tried several different applications of it, and none work. I really wish it worked properly, because it would be such a simple solution for a row of lettuce in the vegetable garden, but it doesn't. June 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Makes watering easy At first I was afraid that it wouldn't water things well enough. But our garden has never been better where we have places these. The areas we didn't and are just hose watering are the same as any other year. We just let them soak for an hour or two and everything looks great! June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by skip the fatties small soaker hose, 50 feet, works great, veggies are happy hard to find reducers though, but worth it July 5, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wet Snake I have tried some of these soaker hoses before and was not very impressed. This product was easy to install and so far seems to be working very well in my vegetable garden. It looks like a skinny black snake. May 17, 2016
