This review is from: Gilmour 270050G Weeper/Soaker Hose, 50-Foot (Lawn & Patio)
using anything else.

We are in our second year of having a garden so are learning as we go. This year got a lot of plants and advice from a friend who plants two BIG gardens and one was when we were in the middle of a drought season was they were getting the soaker hoses out.

We had been watering and my wife did it a lot of times till water was standing but the next day around four or so the ground looked dry. Her brother commented one afternoon you need to water and my wife told him she had been.

I decided to go the soaker method and this fabric type from reviews appeared to be superior in ease of use and durability. The rubber types got a lot of pans because of weight and sensivity to weathering.

Got 150 feet. 100 feet for this garden and 50 more for the planned expansion next year. The 100 feet was easy to lay out and the flow was even the entire length. The first thing we liked it was not beating on the plants like using a sprinkler or hose attatchment did. The next good feature we liked is it takes less time. It is easier to just turn the faucet on and come back 20 minutes later, and I know this saves water. But the absolute best part is two days later we had a different looking garden. The plants perked up and at the end of the day the ground did not have that dried out look it had been having.

Over all easy to use, saves water and works better. Good buy.
