Q:Can this connect to a 1/2 inch line like you would with 1/4 emitters? So this could water carrots and I could run lines to my tomatoes?
by|Feb 21, 2024
1 Answer
Answer This Question

A:  Yes you can punch a hole in the 1/2in line and use a 1/4in barbed connector, 1/4in barbed tee, or1/4in barbed elbow to connect the 1/2in supply line to the Porous Soaker Hose. Keep in mind the maximum recommended run length on a single lateral line is ~15ft.

    Q:I know it says this can be used for vegetables but is it lead free? Are there harmful chemicals? I’ve read these types of soaker hoses are made from recycled tires and have questionable food safety.

    1 Answer
    Answer This Question

    A:  The Porous Soaker Hose is lead free. We offer more than the Porous Soaker Hose- If concerned about food safety take a look at our polyethylene drip line: https://www.digcorp.com/drip-irrigation-homeowner/dripline-soaker-hose/

      Q:Can it be attached to an existing hose?
      by|Jun 5, 2023
      1 Answer
      Answer This Question

      A:  You can attach the PSH50 to the end of a garden hose using our C37B micro tubing adaptor, but it can be a bit difficult to attach due to the material it is made out of. To make the connection easier I recommend using the C37B with a small length of ¼” solid poly tubing then attach the soaker hose using an H80A ¼” barb connector. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our technical service/product support team at 1-800-322-9146 or tech@digcorp.com.

        Q:Do I need a water pressure regulator with this hose or I can just attach this hose to a water line in a house?
        by|May 28, 2023
        2 Answers
        Answer This Question

        A:  Yes, you need a pressure regulator.

        by|May 29, 2023

          A:  It is designed for low pressure release of water from a typical water line. More pressure does not improve performance.

            1/4” soaker hose works well with my drip irrigation sweet corn.

            The product does not work properly
            The hose gives about 7 inch wide irrigation coverage, so spacing them each 6" should provide for a uniform lateral coverage. Lengthwise the coverage is quite uniform. However, the quality is poor as it quirts water from many places as illustrated in the attached picture. This will get water on your leaves. DIG support said that this is because there would be no pressure regulator but I have 25 PSI pressure regulator. I tried with another one which is new with the same result. Avoiding getting water on your leaves is exactly why one purchases this type of product. The DIG support also suggested covering it by mulch. My raised bed in not mulched, so I hid it under a tiny bit of soil. This resolved the squirting but it also reduced watering to only about 2" laterally, making it utter useless. This is a bad product that does not work properly and should not be sold.

              Does what it's supposed to do...drips, which is perfect for a row of vegetable seedlings in a raised-bed garden. Can be buried under mulch or be strung above the surface, depending on the plant type.

              This drip soaker hose has replaced a drip irrigation tubing with built in emitters, which was plugged up already at several places after a year of use only. Compared to that tubing this one is a dream come true. It is softer, which means it is relatively easy to connect and disconnect without braking the plastic connectors. It also provides uniform watering not like the one with the emitter at every 6 inches or so. It was also much less expensive than the tube with the emitter. I am curious how long it will last, but since it is so much better, I will stick with it even if I have to replace it every year.

              Does not perform as claimed. The product package states that even at a very low 15 psi the product will deliver 46.5 GPH over a 50 foot length. In actuality, the amount of water that seeps through the porous surface of this drip soaker hose is not much more than you would expect from condensation. Useless for actual irrigation purposes.

                Ideal for raised bed vegetable gardens...
                I used the drip soaker at my previous home for my vegetable garden and had terrific results, so when I moved and did it all over again, this was my "go to" product. This method of watering puts most of the water in the soil and not on the leaves. Also, it does not disturb the soil as much as sprinklers do so the seeds aren't moved around and roots develop more quickly.

                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).
