Soaker Hose Irrigation Pipe
Made in Lancashire from recycled tyre rubber and plastic.
How can soaker hoses save you money? By allowing water to seep directly through its porous walls into the soil, our porous irrigation pipes put water directly where your plants need it at the root zone. Can be laid on the surface or up to six inches below ground. We would suggest laying on the surface initially to check leakage. The very nature of the recycled materials used in manufacture, dictates that uniformity of leakage is not exact but should be adequate to supply enough moisture to each root zone along a working length which is in turn dictated by water pressure supplied.
