Customer Questions & Answers

Do You Need To Plug The End Of The Line?

Asked by: Tsfrance
Yes. Once you cut off the amount you need just plug the end, Goof plugs can also be used to seal off the end of 1/4" Soaker Drip line.

How do you connect this to a faucet?

Asked by: sftroll
You have to run it off of a 1/2" hose. You use a hole punch(I have the deluxe hole punch. The cheaper one is more possible to hit the other side and damage the 1/2" hose. Which if you remove the little blue adapter, you can punch the 5/8" hose line, as well. Here is the link, to the deluxe version. Huge difference in how easy it is to use, versus the cheaper version(You also get what you pay for.). http://www.homedepot.com/p/Deluxe-Hole-Punch-16-035R/100201515), to make a small hole, to pop the straight barbed 1/4" line connector in to it(Here is the link, for those, as well. http://www.homedepot.com/p/DIG-1-4-in-Barb-Connectors-50-Pack-H80B/100112605). Here is the link, for the "T"s as well. (http://www.homedepot.com/p/DIG-1-4-in-Barb-Tees-50-Pack-H82B/100202006) and here are for the ends(Also goof holes punched, when not needed. http://www.homedepot.com/p/DIG-Goof-Plugs-20-Pack-G79B/100126681). Here is the link, for the solid line, that you can use to run the soaker hose over just where you want it, instead of out to where you need it, so it keeps a good amount of pressure, as well. (http://www.homedepot.com/p/DIG-1-4-in-x-100-ft-Poly-Tubing-B38100P/204184721). Now, remember, this is only 1/4" hose, which means it is small and only a small amount of water can get through it. So, you really should not "spider web" this line, if you need it to get to longer distances, then 20'. Ok, back to how to connect to a faucet(Outdoor faucets.). There is a special connection to the 1/2" hose line, that has an end, just like that of a regular hose. You run the 1/2" hose to where you need it, or at least close to there, then pop those small holes(Remember to keep it cool, before popping the hole. If the hose is warm/hot, then you will need to cool it down, before doing so, or the hose may not want to stay sturdy and pop too big of a hole! To quickly cool it off, just run the water through it.), to use the straight or even the "T" barbed connectors(Ohhh also, the "T" barbs make it easy to use the soaker hose, to make "rings", that you can use around the base of bushes and trees, to keep them soaked and water just that area. Best to make it with a minimum of 3 driplet spots!), or even the 90 degree versions. Then you can turn the water on and get it going! BTW, best to use 1 hole, for every 1-4 adjustable sprayers and for the soaker hose, 1 hole from the 1/2" line, for up to 20' of 1/4" soaker hose line! Hope all of this helps anyone just getting started, to at least have an idea on which way to go! Have fun!

Yes, I think the packaging recommends runs of 28' or less. I have on at about 30' working properly.

Can this product be used as a soaker hose for foundations, to prevent foundation problems?
Asked by: Weekendwarrior
I just pulled out my foundation sprinklers and replaced them with this drip line. You just have to decide how often you want the emitters (they make the lines with 12 inch, 8 inch and 6 inch). I am also in the process of ripping out all the the soaker hoses and replacing them the drip system (the soaker hoses start to fall apart after a few years -- or if you have a bad batch of soaker hoses in a few months). I have several gardens with the drip irrigation and so far no problems (been in for two years now).

1/4 in. x 50 ft. Soaker Hose Dripline is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 32.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product! I ran three rows of this tubing, each about 30 feet long for my garden. Each row w... Great product! I ran three rows of this tubing, each about 30 feet long for my garden. Each row was supplied directly from a 3/4" hose connection (A 1 into 4 hose manifold was used). I got very consistent pressure and volume along the entire length of each row. The necessary fittings and adapters are cheap, easy to use, and abundant at the store. I believe that the 12" spacing is a stretch but is sufficient as long as you soak for a while. Very good bang for the buck!

I had been using the Toro blueline, and if I remember correctly it had emitters embedded every 6". This line has its emitter placed every 12". It isn't really critical, just not quite as effective to delivering water as close to the base of the plant is all, but still close enough to be effective.

No real problems, other then, did not order enough. But I have some adjustable sprayer pieces, to make-up for the lack of judgement, on how much I needed. Wasn't off by much, just a few feet. So, no worries there. If anyone else does order it, best to order double what you think you will need. This way, you will at least have extra, for repairs if need be later. Same goes with the normal no hole line, as well. Same goes for the connections, like the 1/4" barbed piece's. Especially if you are doing a large area. BTW, once you do get the barbs in. You may not be able to easily get them back out! If you have a hard time with that, you can make a small slit in the hose, just long enough to loosen the hose from the barb. Granted, will have to go straight with the hose and have that small section cut-off, to be able to insert the barbed end in, again. So it catches and doesn't just pop right back out again.

The reason I gave it four stars instead of five, because you have to inspect the hose before you lay it down. I found one out of about 6 of the opening need to be adjusted. I lost some succulents because the were getting too much water.

There is a dripper every foot but in some cases I wish there was one every inch. The dripper does not seem to have the same water output as my single 1 gph drippers due, it appears to have a little less.

I rand solid tubing to where I needed the drip line to start. Easy to work with. Cut with a tubing cutter, scissors or heavy duty wire cutters. Will need to plug the ends.
