Q. What's the difference between a Soaker Hose and a Weeper Hose?
A. A Soaker Hose is a plastic hose with holes throughout its length and emits a spray outwards, similar to a sprinkler. A Weeper Hose slowly "weeps" water and looks like it is dripping. Because Weeper Hoses drip directly into the ground underneath them, they are suitable for watering garden beds, can be buried under mulch and are useful for conserving water. Soaker Hoses, on the other hand, act more like a sprinkler. Many people like to use them on nature strips or other long sections of garden.
Q. Can you join more then one Weeper/Soaker Hose Together?
Yes. The Weeper and Soaker Hoses have different threads at each end of the hose, allowing you to join more than one length together. The maximum length we recommend for effective watering is 30m.
Q. Can I bury the Weeper Hose underground?
A. We do not recommend burying this product underground. However it would be ideally placed sitting on top of the ground but under mulch.
Q. Can I turn the Weeper Hose around corners?
A. This hose is best utilised in a straight line, or with very gentle curves. It will not be suitable for a sharp turn.
Q. How do I connect it to water?
A. This product comes with a Hoselink Accessory Connector. You lay the Weeper Hose in your garden bed and attach a Hoselink-fitted hose end to the Accessory Connector. You would not attach this product directly to a tap unless the tap is in the garden bed.
