Can Soaker Hose Without Pressure Washer Be Used With Low Gravity Pressure Only

Question From: n. femling - Quincy, Massachusetts, United States
Q: if I take out the pressure reducing washer will a soaker hose work with a gravity feed work I have 5 50 gallon rain barrels linked together about 100ft away from garden and 2.5ft above the garden

A: I am not an engineer, but I would expect the water will leak out before it get to the end of the hose. Try it and see what happens. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
