How to deal with area where the soaker hose would pass over a gravel walking path

This question is from SoakerPRO 3/8 in. Dia x 100 ft. System Water Hose
Asked by

August 14, 2014
What do you do if the soaker hose needs to pass over a 3 foot wide gravel path to reach all of the planting beds? One of my planting beds is surrounded on all sides by walking paths.

Is there some way to connect a piece of regular hose without holes in between sections of soaker hose?

Or do you cover it with duct tape? Or just let it water the path?

Yes, you can connect a "regular" hose to the system - or use the non-soaker piece that comes with the kit.

Answer: 
it comes with a length of hose that does not exude water. Use that until you get to the other side of the walkway. One can also simply use a regular hose through the walk way and bury it in the gravel. Transition to soaker on either side if need be.

Use a piece of old garden hose with standard hose repair connectors I buried a hose from my faucet at the house 6" 25' to the center of the garden and run in all directions from there this can work inbetween sections as well. If freezing is a concern use compressed air to clear the hose during the winter, take the soaker out of the weather is what I do

Answer: 
it is hard to pull the hoses apart, but it can be done. I suggest composing the network so that with minimal reconfiguration, you can use most parts again without having to separate and join again. Also use the threaded couplings at strategic points which would allow easy separation and connection. It comes with 4 females and 4 male threaded connectors.

Yes simply pull hard on the couplings and the hose will come out. They you can reconfigure your soaker layout and reapply the couplings. If removing the coupling damages that small section of hose simply cut off 1/2" and you will have new hose to assemble the coupling against.

The plugs are to use on the Ts to stop the water at the end of the T system. I suppose that they could have put in elbows for the end of the system, but I think that they used the Ts and you could put the plugs (ends) in where you want to stop.
I had to press the plugs in.

Thanks for your question. We sell a significant number of soaker hoses and Element Soaker Systems in AZ so yes it will stand up to the heat. For best results in any area of the country, after installing the system, cover it with a thin layer of mulch or dirt. This will significantly reduce any evaporation but also protect the hose from UV.

Rated 4.2 out of 5 by 139 reviewers.
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 7, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. June 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 19, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by 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. August 16, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 26, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. May 4, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Even Watering 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. July 20, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 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. July 4, 2016
