The 1/4” laser drilled soaker hose is polyethylene micro tubing with precision laser drilled holes every 6” or with 12" spacing. The laser drilled soaker hose is made of high grade resins with UV resistance. The laser drilled soaker hose can be used as a feeder line from drip tubing or as a part of a complete 1/4" micro tubing system. Use with 1/4" barbed fittings.

Installation for Laser Driller Soaker Hose
Drip hose installation:
The laser driller soaker hose can be installed below or above the ground and covered with mulch to blend it with the landscape. To connect the laser drilled soaker hoses to drip tubing, use our 1/4" barbed fittings.
Designed for use on small areas, such as containers, narrow plantings, green roofs, or oddly shaped layouts, the small diameter laser drilled soaker hoses present installation flexibility for many applications.
If automation is used and you will be running both drip and sprinkler zones, the controller should be selected with care. The ideal controller should have an independent program for each valve, or two to four programs for flexibility to use with each zone. Standard electric control valves (model C023), or 3/4" (model C041) to 2” (model C044) battery operated controllers can be used in the installation, however, care should be taken to review the flow characteristics of the zone that the valve or controller will be accommodating.
The laser drilled soaker hoses should be first laid out and secured into the ground using 1/4" plastic stakes before connecting the laser drilled soaker hoses to the main lateral.
Flushing: Prior to testing leave the end of the main line and the 1/4" drip laterals open,
and then flush the system of all debris. Close the end line and all laterals.
Pressure tests the system with a minimum of 25 PSI to identify leaks in the lateral, fittings and the drip zone.
