Customer Questions & Answers

What is this hose made of? Is it a flat, inflatable, nylon-type material?

Asked by: CZfield
I am not sure what material but it is flat. They were absolutely horrible. I purchased 10 and every single one of them worthless after one summer season in the garden - they had huge holes. Someone posted that they got them to last longer by using a reducer. I would not buy them.

Does this hose need an additional plug at the end if I am only using one 25' section? If so, what product?

I only intend to use this one length and want to make sure I don't need to come back to the store for and end fitting!
Asked by: ad1n
No additional plug is needed. One is provided for the male end piece.

Does this hose similar to a fine misting spray that will water a lawn.

It says flat black which I have found means holes every six inches. They need to be closer like the soaker hoses of 50 years ago.
Asked by: rockart
No, this hose is a soaker hose, and the water seeps slowly out in the ground, it doesn't spray, so this type of hose wouldn't be good for watering large areas, like a lawn. This type of hose is used mainly for putting around foundations to keep the soil moist during droughts to help prevent foundations from cracking, and also in flower beds and vegetable gardens to make watering easier. You can snake it around in your garden rows, and leave it in place all growing season, and hook it up to a regular hose on a timer, or turn the water on for a period of time each day to water your plants. The water goes directly into the ground, so less water is wasted due to evaporation. They're really flexible, so you can curve them where you need to, but, since they're so flexible, that also makes them tangle and twist easily, so you won't want to be moving these a lot, so you can leave them in place all growing season, and you won't even see them, they'll be hidden by the foliage. Also, you don't use this hose with full water pressure, you turn the water on just until you start to see water seeping out, and leave it there. These hoses work great, if used in the right applications.

5/8 in. Dia x 25 ft. Flat Soaker Water Hose is rated 2.8 out of 5 by 54.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Purchase, only expect one season from them I bought these for my garden last season with the expectation that spending a little bit more money upfront would save me headaches in the future. This is not the case with this product. Let me explain my usage. I used them to water a vegetable garden from approximately June through September. A few days following vegetable harvest ( I wanted them to dry out) I collected the hoses from the garden, coiled them nicely and stored them in a water tight tote in the shade for the winter. This spring when I placed them in the garden they were leaky and not good enough to ensure a good water for my garden. Complete waste of money, hoses should not be single season use. Go with the cheaper rubber soaker hoses.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great when used correctly This isn't your standard soaker and, to get optimal results, must be used in the right way. First of all, for the 1 star reviews, I'm almost positive you're hooking it up to your faucet and cranking the water at full blast. No good, your hose will detonate. This is a soaker, so you'll either need to turn the faucet way down or, as I do, run these off splitters with very little water pressure. Also, unlike traditional round hoses, these are flat and very flexible. You can bend them at almost any degree and water will still get to the end of the hose. Additionally, water only emanates from the lowest spot on the hose. So if you're running them between containers, you can raise the hose up between the containers with poles so only the lowest spots (in the pots) will get wet. If the hose is flat, water will come out over the whole length at regular intervals. Final pro tip: use these after a length of regular hose (wrapping the ends in that white plumber's tape) and you'll have a very cheap, very successful garden drip system with minimal water loss.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product I've been using these for a couple of years now, with excellent results. You do have to use pressure reducers with them, which can be had at HD for about $6.00. Trying to control the pressure with the faucet handle won't get the job done. Replace the plastic washers with rubber ones, and leakage will be negligible. I'm currently using 6 of them, connected to poly lines attached to sprinkler valves. My shrubs and perennials love them.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from GIlmour Soaker Hose 27025 Hose I bought this hose a few days ago. I looked for instructions on the wrapper and label about how to use the hose and there were none. There was nothing said anywhere about using low pressure or using a pressure reducer. Now I have water spouts about a third of the way from the front end of the hose and drips on other parts. Had something been said about the need to control the pressure I would have done so.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very helpful during the drought! I bought 2 of these drip hoses during the drought this summer to help save our gardens. The hoses are very flexible and I was able to weave them along the roots of the plants and bushes in two different locations. I left them there and then just hooked up our regular hose to water for a couple of hours. These hoses just drip water out right where you need it- along the roots. The water does not get wasted on the sidewalk or up on the leaves, etc. I loved that I could leave it in the garden and just hooked up my regular hose when I needed to water. I left both of the hoses in the gardens, but you really can't see them. I highly recommend this technique for anyone who dislikes the use of a sprinkler.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best soaker hose on the market This is by far the best soaker hose I have ever purchased. What's unique about this hose is that it's made of a fabric-like material which allows water to easily seep out without requiring a lot of water pressure. Because of this material, it is very easy to handle and store, unlike bulky rubber soaker hoses that kink and break. I have this hose connected to my 55 gallon rain barrel, and it works great. I will be buying more of these!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from OK, but could be better Like others, mine sprung leaks along the seam. I understand now that the seam is not strong enough to withstand full water pressure. But, if you turn the water on just enough to tighten the fabric a little, it works fine. I don't know if there is a warning about this on the package, but if there isn't, there should be. Mine leaked in the first few feet from the faucet connection. I had nothing to lose, so I removed the two screws on the coupling and took it apart. Inside the fabric there is a thin walled plastic tube with tiny holes. The tubing and outer fabric are secured to the coupling by compression from the screws. There is also a short black piece of plastic tube between the inner tubing and the fabric. The soaker was about six feet longer than I needed, so I just cut off the leaky portion with scissors and re-attached the coupling. Now it works like new. I believe this would be a better product if the seam was heat sealed.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very disappointing As an irrigating system in a small vegetable garden, the ability to change the configuration of the hoses easily and their flexibility in navigating tight turns was very good. The positive aspects of their design was entirely offset by their extremely poor construction. Of the eight hoses I purchased, four sprang leaks within the first season. In addition, it was very problematic to try to return them to Home Depot despite being under warrantee. As they no longer carried them in the store, I was unable to return or exchange them.
