5/8" Bulk Soaker Hose (.820 OD) can be identified by it's "Green Stripe". Bulk Soaker Hose offers the perfect delivery of water to plants. Made from recycled materials, 70% from recycled rubber and 30% recycled polyethylene products that are re-pelletized for use in the process.
Being "bulk" Soaker Hose means there are no fittings on the hose. In turn, you can cut to desired lengths to create your own custom system.
Can be run in lengths up to 250', but not to exceed 500' off one water supply.
GPH is approx. 224 gallons per hour, per 100' at 25 psi, depending on inlet pressure & water hardness.
Shorter lengths will have an increase in GPH
.820 Soaker Hose uses 820 compression fittings
Soaker Hose should be used on flat surface not exceeding a 2' rise over 100'.
A pressure regulator is a MUST since Soaker Hose is designed to work at low pressure. (25 PSI) We recommend using a soaker hose pressure regulator, 200 mesh filter, backflow preventer to help separate particles and prevent the hose from clogging.
Areas with hard water should consider using a calcium filter as well.
This is the size normally used in clay soils around foundations, usually in the great state of Texas.
Please be sure this is the size you want. Shipping is expensive to return it, as the hose is heavy. If you are not sure, please send us a message.
