Nylex’s Soaker Hose is ideally suited to watering lawns, garden beds, ferneries and vegetables patches. The soaker hose works by having fine holes on one side of the hose. When the holes are faced upwards the spray pattern is a fine multi directional stream in an even “strip” style watering pattern. An average tap at about 200kPa sprays about 3 to 4 metres across. When faced down, it becomes a great water saving product that deep waters your plants close to their roots where it is needed most helping to keep your plants hydrated while reducing unnecessary over-spray and evaporation.
