Customer Reviews for Soaker Hose
So I do not waste water watering.
First hose within a full days use developed several tiny holes that created mini-geysers that created pools of water. The free replacement that A.M. Leonard immediately provided,has worked for several weeks with no problems.
I've been using this product for 7 years now. I have landscape beds that this hose has been in place for 7 years & still holding up well. No leaks, no cracking.
We recently built a new home in Texas. This past summer was brutal (heat and drought). We purchased these soaker hoses to keep our lawn alive through the drought. What we got was far better than anticipated. The lawn is on just enough slope that the soakers buried at the top of the slope kept the grass green all summer, watering once a week. (Zoysia Palisades)
I'm using it on 2000 feet of rhubarb. It works very well.

Reduce water usage up to 70%! Just connect the hose to your outside faucet or garden hose and turn the water on to low pressure (1/4 turn). This will slowly water your plants at the root zone where they need it most, with no runoff or evaporation. Hoses can be used above or below the ground. If using above ground, cover with a layer of mulch For below ground irrigation bury 2 to 6 inches deep. Hose will not be damaged if frozen. Ideal for trees and shrubs or gardens.
