It saves you a lot of water. It is somewhat fragile however; had some pinholes where water shot out 12 inches high. Have five of these hooked up in series around some small holly trees. Overall, the best plan for my application, but could be made more substantially to last longer.
I bought 4 of these because I really liked the concept, but they have each failed to meet the test of time. In each instance the hose developed large leaks making it useless. This is true despite the fact that I installed a flow control device on the unit in an effort to keep the pressure to a minimum while the water was flowing.
Soaker Hose Tree Ring
I am very please with this product. I find it easy to get a new tree or shrub started when I have the ability to get water to all the roots. This product is well made and reliable.
Product performed fine. Hose was fine. Y-connector could be better.
