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.

Works fine, until it fails

Pros

    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.

        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.

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

              I am a Master gardener, but an. Over 65 gardener and wanted to redo my front gardens entirely with perennials. I worked with a landscape designer to come up with a good plan for the two gardens in my front yard. Maryland has a climate which has gradually bee moving into a Mediterranean mode. The flat garden in front of the house is sun with an outline of huge hostas, the hillside under the mature pink Dogwood is deep shade. Watering with cans in these areas is out of the question! Needed Help. Opened my favorite garden catalog and there it was. The foolproof soaker hose system . It has saved my life. When one wasn't enough, ordered another one. Can hook the tw together once or twice a week and voila! a beautiful garden. Or if sun needs more water,can turn on that one only. With your dual faucet push button faucet attachment I can also have a regular faucet for my can. I hav several serious conditions, but you have allowed me to continue to garden, will install in my backyard coleus garden. So easy, so wonderful! Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

                Best product to put water exactly where you want it and is very efficient. But be prepared to fix it often because the driphose cracks and leaks.
