Soaker Hose Only Emits Water For First 50 Feet Of 100 Foot Length

Question From: E. Baquerizo - San Rafael, California, United States
Q: I just purchased a Miracle Gro 100 foot soaker hose for my backyard garden. It does have a washer with a 1/8 inch hole in the center to reduce water pressure. However, I'm still finding that the first 50 feet of hose is weeping, but the last 50 feet does not emit water. Any suggestions?

A: You can see what Jeff Ball has to say about soaker hoses here: I'd buy a better quality soaker hose such as one made by Fiskars. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy
