Soaker Hose Irrigation Information

Soaker Hose Irrigation systems are a more effecient alternative to the traditional sprinkler system. Soaker Hose Irrigation is a hose that is porous along its entire length, leading to the slow trickle of water droplets which soak the soil over a pre-determined period (controlled by a water timer). Soaker hoses help to reduce water use by up to 90% compared to watering manually.

Using Soaker Hose in the garden?

You can run a Soaker Hose Irrigation System from an outside garden tap, or from a water butt. If you intend to run a Soaker Hose Irrigation system from a water butt then you should be aware that you need water pressure to move the water around the pipe, and you can only create water pressure in a water butt with either a pump, or by elevating the water butt.
