The Rain Barrel Soaker Hose Kit *

$48.00 - $62.00
(50 ft. or 100 ft. soaker hose)

$58.00 - $72.00
(With 25 ft. poly tubing)

The Rain Barrel Soaker Hose (RBSH) is specially formulated to work with any gravity fed system. The hose is made from 100% recycled materials (70% rubber and 30% polethylene). In 2009, an environmental consulting firm evaluated the RBSH for materials with potential to leach contaminants, and reported that none exceeded the AGI or the EPA drinking water standard. Based on their review, the RBSH was considered protective of heath for drinking water use. It is a low flow, high output soaker hose using .580 compression fittings that allows maximum output to your garden. The Rain Barrel Soaker Hose works with little or no pressure while other soaker hoses require 10-25 lbs. of pressure to operate efficiently.

For best results place your rain barrel close to the ground (you can elevate your barrel but it is not necessary), create a setup with a continuous flow (meaning there are no ends), and cover the soaker hose with mulch to keep it cool.

Note: A single run should not exceed 100 feet.
