Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Gabriel Love this! DIY watering system
This system, plus a timer, easily waters my 30' X 15' garden, with lots of hose let over. Cover the hose with mulch and it looks professional. Great product.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Yellowjacket Very Versatile, But Inlet Fitting Leaks
This product allows you to custom design your watering needs around your garden layout. It comes with an assortment of male and female standard hose fittings, end caps, and T-fittings. The hose can be cut to length and branch lines run with the T-fittings. The kit also includes about 10 ft. of non-permeable hose for those areas that don't need water.
The hose is easy to install if you follow the instructions and lay it out in the sun for about an hour to take the curl out of it.
I would like to have seen some straight connectors for splicing the soaker hose and the non-permeable hose sections. I solved this problem by using the supplied male and female standard hose fittings. If you do this, be sure to remove the restrictor washers from the female hose fittings or you will reduce the downstream water flow. One restrictor washer at the farthest upstream point is all you will need.
One criticism: the inlet fitting leaks. The restrictor washer would not seal to the end of my supply hose. I solved the problem by buying a standard hose washer, and placing it in front of the restrictor washer. I had to use the thinnest washer I could find, as the thicker washers did not leave enough threads for the hose to stay connected. Miracle-Gro could easily solve this problem by supplying an appropriate washer.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Cateyz I've gone thru my share of soaker hoses from top brands to the cheapest.
This is my favorite of all. Great price, light, flexible, customize or leave in one length. Scissors are the only tool you will need. Plenty of connectors and fittings that simply grip the hose. I will buy more.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tfunk Works great
Easy to set up and distributes water pretty evenly. I've moved it around several times and it is holding up well. Will most likely buy another kit to just set it up and leave it in place.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by JJ Listen to the bad reviews!
Despite reading the bad reviews (as well as the good!) I went out and bought this.
It's junk. The first 10 feet of hose gets wet. The rest does not.
I ran water full blast for 30 minutes and the majority of the soaker hose was, well, not soaked! It was dry as can be. While the first 10 feet was dripping wet.
Horrible product. Save your money and effort.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by dcline Great Soaker Hose System
This product has all the necesary components you will need to install a basic soaker hose system in your garden. The 100ft of hose is more than enough for a home garden. It was more than enough for my 10 x 10 plot. There are "T" pieces that use blue stopper discs to convert them to elbow pieces. This made it easy to adjust to different size rows. All the components fit snuggly without leaks. It did take some time and planning to set up. My only concern with a this type of system how adjustable it will be if I change the layout. The company offers additional hose so I'm sure all the fittings would be reusable if you needed to adjust the hoses.

Best soaker hose I've ever used! Even, consistent watering but you have to make sure your water pressure isn't too high or too low. It comes with plenty of fittings that are easy to attach to the hose.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by DrJon Easy to set up but tricky to get to work
Hose and interconnect prices are nice and make for easy assembly.
As others noted, the hose under normal pressure only irrigated for about 30 feet,even after I removed the pressure reducers. less than half the total length. I installed a "Y" on the feeder hose and a "T" with a female thread, included in the kit, and connected a second feed near the opposite end.
My kit came without any instructions.
