Forget the daily chore of dragging out the hose!

Regular, consistent watering is the most important thing you can do to prevent blossom end rot and fruit cracking of your tomatoes. The Ooze Tube ensures that your plants receive 40 gallons of water, slowly and steadily, over a period up to three weeks. Water is delivered through drip line and emitters that easily insert into the tube to water just the plants you want. Eliminates runoff and reduces weeds and pests for a healthier garden. Add liquid fertilizers and amendments to the tube to feed plants as you water. UV resistant plastic tube measures about 8 feet extended, or use in a "C" shape around young trees and plants. Complete with approximately 8 feet of tubing, 4 emitters, and 2 wooden ground stakes. Ship weight: 2 lbs.

    FAQ

    • QUESTION: Can an Oooze Tube like the TWK40 be used on a slope?
    • ANSWER: Slopes can be challenging, but here are a few suggestions:
    • 1. First, if a new tree is planted properly on a slope, there should be a level "shelf" on which the Ooze Tube can sit (the surface of the root ball).
    • 2. The Ooze Tube does NOT have to be wrapped around the tree; so if the slope is severe and there is no level ?shelf?, the user can install the Ooze Tube above the tree, and install the dripper on the outside of the Ooze Tube ?donut? where it drips on the uphill side of the rootball. Gravity and soil capillary action pulls the water where it is needed.
    • 3. If you have access to the top of the hill, you could install the Ooze Tube at the top of the hill? sometimes, in a straight line so that it holds a lot more water (the full 40 gallons). Then, they will install the drippers on the outside of the bag and attach 1/4? drip tubing (our PT141) to the dripper discharge. Then run the drip tubing down the hill, to the tree. By doing this, you no longer have to drag hoses on the side of the hill to refill the bags. Just go to the top of the hill and fill the bags.

Failure Anthony Booker from OR wrote June 16, 2018

Despite making the smallest hole possible and very gently inserting the supplied emitters, 90% leak at a greater rate than the 1/2 gah emitters.It appears that the material used has insufficient elasticity to "seal" around the emitter. Therefore, watering occurs for only one to two days which means we must find an alternative to use while we travel.

I purchased it to water tomatoes. I have 5 droppers installed so it needs filling every couple of days.

ooze tube B. from NM wrote October 13, 2011

This is a great idea, but didn't live up to my expectations. I travel a lot in the summer and thought this was a great way to keep my garden alive when I was away. It worked early in the season, but the plastic did not hold up well enough to hold the emitters tightly, so the water leaked out too quickly around the emitters. Will not work for another season! I might try the bags next year, as they look like they are made of a tougher material. Again, great idea, poor execution!

Disappointed, to say the least. Vegetable lover from Texas from TX wrote October 06, 2011

The product did NOT work as depicted. The tubes are located in such obscure locations and with such short tubing that using the product was difficult, and the supposed watering of the plants simply did not happen as the product is described. What it did do was give mosquitoes an open space to get into the water and breed. We removed the bags and threw them away. Very disappointed.
