Q:A month of use and it barely emits water. 1 hour of watering and the thin layer of straw mulch is damp, dirt is dry. I am using a new Dig pressure regulator and inline filter. Emitters and sprayers down the line work just fine. What gives?

Answer This Question

A:  I've used this drip hose for 2 years. You are correct that it does not put out a lot of water. I lay the hose on both sides of my plants. My drip system has a timer. I run the water through the hose for 1 hour, let the water soak in for 3 hours, then run the water through the hose for a second hour. My plants are doing well with this method.

    A:  Having reduced flow rate that develops after only a month of operation sounds like it may be debris, I would recommend flushing the soaker line by pulling out the end cap and letting it flush for 10 to 15 seconds. Also make sure length of soaker hose is no longer than 15 feet max, if you have any further questions or require further troubleshooting assistance, please contact our technical service/product support team at 1-800-322-9146.

        Answer This Question

        A:  Our PSH50 porous soaker hose not emitting any water after only 3 months of use is very strange. Also, the PSH50 changing in size we have never experienced when you have a moment, please contact our technical service/product support team at 1-800-322-9146 for troubleshooting assistance.

              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).
