Soaker Hose Top Tips
To make sure you get the best out of your soaker hose, please follow our list of top tips.
Upon receiving your soaker hose, unwind it slowly and carefully making sure you do not allow the hose to kink as this will prevent the flow of water. Kinks in the hose can also cause damage to the hose structure so you may wish to ask a friend to help you unwind the hose.
Once your hose is fully unwound, leave it out in the sun at least one hour which should allow any kinks to settle.
As the soaker hose is not pressure regulated, make sure that you lay your soaker hose over flat ground for maximum efficiency.
Be sure to use a hold down stake every metre to ensure your hose remains in place.
Carefully place a barbed end plug in the open end of the soaker hose. In order for the hose to work correctly, the barbed end plug must fit the internal diameter of the hose.
If you wish to water a large area, then use multiple water sources or lay your soaker hose in zones, ensuring that each zone does not exceed a length of 30m.
Before attaching your soaker hose to a water source, be sure to check your water pressure. If your water pressure exceeds 3 bar you may need to purchase a pressure regulator. Minimum working pressure = 0.5 bar/7.5 psi and maximum working pressure = 3 bar.
During the winter months, disconnect your soaker hose from the water source and allow any trapped water to drain out. You will need to store in a garage or shed.
It is not advisable to leave your soaker hose out during the winter months as the tiny holes will absorb rain water which will expand in freezing temperatures and cause the hose to burst.
