Product Overview

For an efficient, economical and eco-friendly way to water your plants, look no further than the Element SoakerPRO soaker hose by Swan. Featuring tiny holes or "pores" along its length, the SoakerPRO soaker hose weeps water directly to plants' root systems at a rate of 0.5 gallon-1 gallon per foot per hour on ground level. This not only reduces evaporation, but also uses up to 70 percent less water than a conventional sprinkler. To further reduce water consumption, we've added a patented blue water restrictor in the female coupling to control water pressure and flow. The SoakerPRO soaker hose is very lightweight, which makes it easy to wind around plants and set under soil or mulch. Once established, you no longer have to carry or drag a cumbersome garden hose to water your garden. In addition, your delicate flowers, foliage and vegetables are protected from the intense water pressure that comes from a traditional water hose and/or nozzle. The SoakerPRO soaker hose is made from 65 percent recycled rubber and backed by a 7-year warranty. It's also lead-free and compliant with California's strict phthalate-content standards, so no harmful chemicals or odors are added to your water supply. We've created the SoakerPRO soaker hose as a 25-foot soaker hose, a 50-foot soaker hose a 75-foot soaker hose, a 100-foot soaker hose and a 250-foot bulk soaker hose, so you'll have enough length to satisfy any watering issue, from a small flowerbed to a large stretch of landscape.
  • Soaker hose with pores that slowly release water directly to plants' roots, reducing evaporation for more efficient watering
  • Ideal for flowerbeds, gardens and large landscaping projects
  • Weeps water at a rate of 0.5 gallon-1 gallon per foot per hour on ground level
  • Patented blue water restrictor in female coupling controls water pressure/flow, reducing water consumption
  • Made of 65% recycled rubber and uses up to 70% less water than a conventional sprinkler
  • Lightweight, easy to wind around plants and set under soil or mulch
  • Protects delicate flowers, foliage and vegetables from direct contact with damaging water pressure
  • Meets lead-free standards under Federal Safe Drinking Water Act
  • Compliant with California's strict phthalate-content standards
  • Economical and environmentally friendly

Can this be buried under raised garden rows for direct root watering to avoid evaporation?

Asked by Nokota March 14, 2021

Answers

The hoses don't hold up I have bought about 600 feet of this product and they don't do the job well for a raised bed garden much less watering the foundation of your house

Is 3/8 inch the inside or outside diameter of this hose?

Asked by Fred February 1, 2021

Answers

It appears to be inside diameter. OD is 1/2 inch

so the 50 foot hose uses 25-50 gallons per hour?

Asked by Bob August 26, 2020

Answers

I just measured 100 gallons per hour with water pressure a little over spec (so high). Your mileage may vary.

Hi....does this hose soak (spray) up, down, or both depending on the situation? I am growing pumpkins and need to be ground soaked....please advise.

Asked by Grubby August 20, 2020

I have other size soaker hoses made by Swan and they do not spray. They weep water directly to the ground through the porous hose material.

How much water does the hose deliver per hour , at an average water pressure ?

I need to cut the hose into shorter lengths. What size hose fitting should I use?

The hose is 3/8 inch

Need 25 ft soaker hose

Asked by Liza July 16, 2020

Answers

If the store only has the 50 ft length, it is easy to cut to length and reuse the same fittings. Save the cut off piece for future use, and the 50 ft is cheaper per foot than two 25 ft packages would be.

Is this UV safe?

Asked by Joe July 12, 2020

Answers

Mine is above ground in the plant bed, and so far (after one season), has not shown any signs of deterioration.

Where can I get the connectors to make 2 or 3 shorter hoses?

Probably any well stocked hardware store

Works fine, if you get all the air out
I have 3 of these hoses connected. Due to how the hoses work and the small aperture at each connection, it takes a long time for the water to reach the end of the last hose… the first time you use it. Don’t drain the line (until winter) and the next time you use them they will work properly. Like others have mentioned, removing the cap on the last hose does seem to help with clearing the air from the lines
by Bill
Works as intended
Water flow was remarkably consistent from the first foot to the last foot. If it holds up I will be completely satisfied. Picture is from end of hose

works fine if you purge the air first
fortunately someone figured it out in another review. you have to remove the end cap and let it run until all the air is purged. I let it run with my thumb over the end until I stopped feeling it spit air. takes a minute for the water to get past the restrictor washer and fill up. worked fine. says nothing about that in the directions.

Does the job but not durable
These are basically disposable hoses. They last about a season then you start having leaking issues where it attaches to your hose (see photo) I've had 3 of these and they all did the same thing. I've also has issues with the rubber decaying and sprouting leaks. You can just slice off the bad part and reattach the end piece (it just slides on basically) and one hose in particular had this problem so often I ended up with about a 15 foot hose at one point before tossing it. Granted, I live in the desert and the climate is harsh but I didn't leave these out in the elements all the time, I would use it then bring in into the shed until the next use and they still don't last.

I bought two of these and installed in a small planter and both are fed off of the same source with the same pressure. One works perfect and soaks as it should. The other does not soak at all, and there is barely a trace of weeping. They were side by side in the same box at HD. Not happy, as it took quite a bit of time to install. I guess they do not test the full run of hose that they make these out of. Test it before you install it.

I tried to switch to the flat type, but although the flat type had a 7 year warranty, Almost all of them failed within a year. This item the miracle-Gro has a 7 year warranty, so I will see how they hold up to the FL sun!
