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.
This is a follow up on an earlier poor review of 250 foot soaker hoses. The Lawson company, upon receiving photos of the multiple hose ruptures and repairs, replaced all of them with an upgrade soaker product. I commend their response, immediate attention and good faith replacement, and hope that these higher quality hoses will solve my watering problems.
