Essential Info

The Orbit 68360R 50 Foot Soaker Hose is an easy to install hose that provides full length, slow and steady flow watering that's ideal for gardens, flowerbeds, closely planted areas and trees.

The Orbit Soaker hose is designed to saturate the soil in a designated area. Water weeps from the tubing and is soaked up by the surrounding soil to gently water delicate plants. The Soaker Hose gently discharges water from holes all around the tubing. Soaker systems are used for flower and vegetable gardens, professional landscaping, and any other vegetation planted in close proximity to each other. The Orbit Soaker Hose can be connected to any outdoor faucet or retrofitted to a new or existing underground sprinkler system.

Whether for conservation reasons or to meet the specific needs of varied garden plants, drip irrigation gives you the option to precisely control where your irrigation goes and how much water plants receive. Orbit's DripMaster system allows you to install a completely custom drip irrigation setup using a variety of components, from different sizes of tubing to drippers with precise flow rates.

More Info

Soaker Hose
  • To maintain even watering, soaker hose should not be extended beyond 100 feet from the water source.
  • A single faucet can operate a total of up to 600 feet of soaker hose. This is a combined total of all soaker hose no greater than 100 feet in length from each outlet.
  • Soaker hose will water plants in loose, sandy soil up to 8 inches from each side of the hose; plants in hard, clay-like soil must be within 12 inches of the hose.
  • Soaker hose is best used above ground or covered with mulch. Hose may be buried up to 4 inches deep if necessary, but is discouraged as it is more difficult to monitor watering and hose can be damaged by unseen roots or digging.
  • Avoid placing soaker hose up and down hills; lay it horizon┬Čtally along slopes.
  • Soaker hose emits 1 gallon of water per hour for every 10 feet of hose, varying with water pressure and length of hose. To determine optimal watering duration, experiment with each section.
  • Soaker hose operates best at low pressures of 10 to25 psi. The water from the hose should drip and not spray. Always use a pressure regulator to achieve the appropriate water pressure.
