Customer Reviews for Pro Series 1-inch Soaker Hose, For Longer Runs
So I do not waste water watering.
Osmile Soaker Hose
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.
Osmile Soaker Hose
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.
Near perfect solution
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.
soaker hose vendor makes excellent upgrade in replacing hoses
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.
Hoses get major leaks; worst garden product ever made
I bought two 250 ft. Osmile Pro hoses three seasons ago, [including this summer]. It was difficult for one person to lay such long hoses, but I hoped not to have to do it again, and to have peace of mind that my sandy soil near the Atlantic Ocean would be properly watered regardless of drought or my absence. These hoses began rupturing the second season, and this summer I repair them almost daily! I have paid more for these hose repairs than another 100 foot hose would cost, with no end in sight.
After this season, I am going to pack up some of the excised sections, return them with more photos -I have already sent some- and invoke the ""lifetime" warrantee. As much as I hate pulling them up -they lie lightly covered under a thin mulch- I have had it. I bought these soaker hoses because I live near the Jersey shore and my soil is very sandy. I am also committed to water conservation. Although these hoses work well, I am extremely disappointed that they do not hold up; I have made over 6 repairs in 2 seasons
Osmile Soaker Hose
I use the Osmile Soaker Hose in established beds of perennials, herbs and shrubs. It's a heavy, thick walled hose that works well buried slightly below grade. Though somewhat stiff the hose is flexible enough for an application that requires curving the hose slightly to conform to the shape of the beds. The density allows water delivery to be reasonably constant from one end to the other. I'm very pleased with the product.

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. Cut to length or repair your soaker hose using our 50M58, CR58M, AND CR58F couplers.
