Watch: Snip-N-Drip Watering 

Apply water just where you want it — and not where you don't. With the Snip -n-Drip Soaker System you can easily create a customized watering system. No special tools required — just use scissors to cut the soaker hose to fit garden beds, and then cut the garden hose to fit between beds where you don't need water. Snap the fittings in place and you're ready to water. The weeping action of soaker hoses delivers water right to the roots, with minimal loss due to evaporation and runoff. Soaker hoses use up to 80% less water than sprinklers! Waters up to four zones. We recommend our Earth Staples, sold separately, to hold soaker hoses in place.

Sprang leaks during initial use

By Jan in DC

from Washington DC

Verified Buyer

Comments about : Snip-n-Drip Soaker Hose System:

This kit has all the equipment needed for a garden soaker system but the hose started a significant leak on the first use. Cut the overleaking section which left the hose a bit short for my needs but useable. A second leak I directed towards another plant area so did a work around. I ended up buying an additional brand name soaker hose section at a large local box store which works well and was less expensive.

Comments about : Snip-n-Drip Soaker Hose System:

Took very little time and effort to set this up, and it worked perfectly the first time trying it out. I didn't have to adjust anything after installing. I've already bought two more sets of this system.

Works well

By Marilyn

Comments about : Snip-n-Drip Soaker Hose System:

Easy to put together, and puts the water right where you want it. I bought extra soaker hose since I needed more, and was able to hook it right in with one of the connectors. The hoses cut easily with a regular pair of scissors. I'm not the best at putting things together, so if I can do it, anyone can!

Works fine, until it fails

    Cons

      Best Uses

      • Vegetable gardens, raised beds, flower gardens

      Comments about : Snip-n-Drip Soaker Hose System:

      I've had these hoses for three or four years now. The system goes together easily, and is easy to set up. It works well in terms of functioning as advertised: it delivers the water to the plants with very little wasted to evaporation. I've set these up with timers so that my vegetable and flower gardens get watered at night, and I've been satisfied with the results.

      HOWEVER -- and the reason I'm giving it only three stars -- is that after a couple of years, the hoses start to fail. This can take several different forms: the hoses get quite fragile and will break or split (especially if you have them on top of the soil and they get a lot of sun). Yes, you can repair them by using connectors, but it gets a little ridiculous to have 5 or 6 joins in a 25-foot run. And if the faucet or finished end breaks off, you can't use the hoses at all. Even worse is when the hoses stop doing the "weeping" thing -- the water goes in and keeps going, and doesn't seep out. A hose that doesn't leak is usually a good thing, but not in this case. And you can't use them as standard garden hoses because of that fragility I mentioned above.

      Even a length of hose that had never been used, and was stored in my (heated) garage, developed both the fragility problem and the sclerotic issue.

      These are pricey enough that having to replace them every few years is annoying.

        Best Uses

        • Outdoor Garden

        Comments about : Snip-n-Drip Soaker Hose System:

        I use this to water my herbs and tomato garden, using an automatic timer. The water isn't wasted getting to the "target zone," and I can also bypass my self-watering planters that are on a drip system. This was simple to install with nothing more than a pair of scissors for snipping the hose lengths. With lots of connectors provided, the configuration possibilities are endless. I ran the soaker hose underneath mulch, to protect it from sunlight wear and to help hold in as much moisture as possible.
