Weeping action of the soaker hose delivers water directly to the roots without wasting it and incurring loss due to evaporation or overflow.

Using soaker hoses in raised beds

The soaker hose and soaker tubing type of drip system is easy to use in traditional row style or raised bed gardens that allows water to seep out the entire length of the hose.

Soaker hose is connected manually to the garden hose to each line at each irrigation session or by connecting a series of dedicated garden hoses to a series of lines. On raised-bed gardening, it is easy to run a water line with a tap to each box.

Uniform water delivery can be done if you keep runs short, at about 25 feet or less. In long lengths, the water delivery will be higher at the top of the hose line and less at the bottom. Ensure the ground must be reasonably level for equal water delivery. On slopes, several short lengths run are to be formed.

There are major two types of soaker hose available:

Half-Inch Soaker Hose

This half-inch hose easily gets connect with standard hose fitting. It can be cut to any length and connected with garden hose fittings.

A small plastic disc fits inside the female hose connection as a pressure regulator or a flow regulator. By using this water flow reduces hence you need to run water for more time so that adequate water reaches on the bed. It is recommended to use the pressure regulators with hose-end fittings so that with this type of regulator, the drip line runs 10 to 20 minutes more to sufficiently water the bed. Without a pressure regulator your soaker hose tends to break or crack at times.

This half-inch hose style is more lenient to small amounts of dirt, algae, or salts in the water. Regularly open up the end of the hose and flush out soil deposits stored within.

Quarter-inch Soaker Tubing

Cut the quarter-inch soaker tubing as to the required length and connect it with drip system components. An in-line pressure regulator is required otherwise; the fitting may burst or leak. The soaker tubing has a higher delivery rate so place it differently apart from other in-line drip hose, button emitters, or bubblers.
