Want to replace sprinklers on side of driveway with a soaker hose. Any suggestions how to do this?
Asked by: bianca
Yes. Get drip adapter and put in place of sprinkler. Connect soaker and plug end of soaker with 1/4 plug. Or make a loop with soaker by slipping ends into two 1/4 connections. You can also limit the amount of water if excessive with the time you water with a gallons per hour drip emitter. Place this first with small section of 1/4 tube.

This can work. I make a loop by using a 1/4 barber tee and place the tubing in a zig zag or other pattern and stake down with wire U shaped landscap fabric anchors.

1/4 in. x 50 ft. Porous Drip Soaker Hose is rated 3.8 out of 5 by 104.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good concept, does not last. If you purchase this, definitely keep it under mulch and out of the sun. I've had moderate success with it this way. I still had problems with consistent flow over the whole length of tubing. Lots of water came out right where it connected to my 1/2" main line, a hefty amount came out in the first few feet, but then it left a lot to be desired for the rest of the length. If you leave this exposed to the sun and air, it will not last. Mine is dried out and cracking (as in snapping into pieces) after 2 years. For instance, I cut a broken part off and tried to reattach it only to have the intact piece crack and crumble too. Save your money and buy the laser-cut 1/4" tubing instead. Look for the ones with backflow preventers built into every perforation. Those have been significantly more effective as well as long lasting for me.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wasted effort I purchased six 50 foot lengths to irrigate flower beds along the sides of my front yard. The system was configured with a 25 PSI pressure regulator (p/n D46P) as specified by the manufacturer. Each 50 foot length of soaker hose (p/n PSH50) was cut into 12.5 foot lengths (manufacturer recommends maximum lengths of 15 feet) and connected to a full flow manifold. Only one 50 foot length of this soaker hose performed as expected. I have replaced the soaker hose with a system of 0.5 GPH button drippers (p/n WL0510B & W2205A) at greater expense, but it works well and keeps the flowers and rose bushes well hydrated. Inconsistent quality seems to be the biggest problem with the soaker hose. The manufacturer needs to quality check each batch of hose that it produces before sending it to distributors. Unfortunately, the consumer is the quality control entity.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Must install correctly This product is great for delivering water flow to plants in a planter bed when used in short legs attached to 1/2 inch tubing by connectors. Lower water pressure is actually better than high pressure. Sure, it isn't as easy as just laying down the hose and being done with it but it will deliver water to every plant instead of just at the beginning of the hose. It is also specified that it is supposed to be covered in dirt or mulch - not left bare so that would solve the exposure problem folks are talking about.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Worthless product This hose worked great for about an hour then it pluged up. We called the co they said it wasn't for gardens where it was exposed to dirt. Dah what other kind of garden is there?

My 7 foot lengths at 6 inch spacing did not give me coverage, so I changed the spacing 4 inches between the 7 foot lengths neither spacing gave me full watering coverage of my above ground garden. Next, I took out the 25 psi regulator and applied more pressure which did nothing. I do not recommend this soaker hose.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good product I like soaker hose and have used this and other similar products for over 20 years. It works well to distribute water in a slow drip fashion to plants. However, you must put in a reducing psi- valve with a filter or connector for it to work properly (to keep your lines free and clear) and make sure you water long enough since the watering will be much less (which is good to prevent runoff and to get water deep to the roots of the plants).

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GREAT product! I was hesitant to buy this soaker hose because of so many poor reviews, but for the price I thought it was worth giving it a try anyway. I must say that I am really impressed with how good of a job this little soaker does. I think the reason for the poor reviews is possibly that folks were using too long of a piece of the tubing and not breaking up the length. I find that cutting a 10-12' length is just perfect with plenty of water pressure by the end of the tube. I specifically use this soaker for my lettuce and other salad greens in my cold frames and snake it around. I also make sure it is on top of the soil and not covered with dirt.
