Soaker hoses are easy system to install and maintain. This system is environmentally safe, manufactured with recycled material and operates at a low pressure, conserving our water resources. It allows water to go directly into the soil, instead of on the plants, which can cause mold and/or disease. Soaker hose allows for consistent watering to plants, enhancing homes and gardens to grow food and save money. The convenience of this no hassle system leaves more time for other things in life. Soaker hoses apply moisture directly to the root zone of plants. Mr. Soaker Hose products offer an efficient way to water plants without wasting water. There’s no runoff, because the water seeps out through tiny pores along the length of the hose at a rate no faster than the ground can absorb it.
Mr. Soaker Hose manufactures 1/4", 420 od, 580 od and 820 od bulk soaker hoses in lengths from 25' to 500'. The numbers indicate the outside diameter (o.d.) of the hose, the smaller the number, the smaller the outside diameter. A larger diameter hose produces less friction. The 820 size allows more water to reach the end of the hose quicker, especially for longer lengths. .580 can be run in lengths up to 100’ .700 can be run in lengths up to 150’ .820 can be run in lengths up to 250’.
Soaker hose is measured by the o.d., “outside diameter” Our .580 has a yellow stripe. The .700 has a red stripe. The .820 has a green stripe, and our Rain Barrel Soaker Hose has a purple stripe.
Rain Barrel Soaker Hose is specially formulated to work with any rain barrel or other gravity fed system. It is a low flow, high output soaker hose that allows maximum output for flower and other garden areas. Rain barrel soaker hose is bulk, meaning you can cut the hose with a knife and use .580 compression fittings to create your own custom soaker hose system for your flower or garden area. You must use a 200 mesh filter to keep the foreign material in your barrel (bugs, roofing particles, dust, debris) from clogging the soaker hose.
