I just recently put in about seven of these hoses throughout all of my wife's flower beds, our bushes, and our azaleas. They are easy to manage while you are getting them where you want them to go. You'll need to invest in some wire holders but they are extremely cheap and you can get a bunch at a real low cost. These also work extremely well with a timer and remember that you cannot run these hoses at full blast or you'll blow them up. Just set the water to barely a trickle and let the timer turn it on and off for you.
I'll be putting in some more this winter around our blueberry bushes.
These are an essential to anyone serious about planting shrubs, flowers, or even a garden.
We purchased this hose at Kmart and had to return it that day because it had a large hole appear in it after only being used for a short time. Kmart gave us a new hose and this time it made it a couple hours and started spraying water from holes at both ends. While standing there I observed 2 other holes form. We are not impressed with this product at all!!! I don't know if we are even going to waste the time and gas to take it back and try again.

I haven't had a chance to use this one yet but it looks like it will be perfect for watering my garden this year while keeping water use down. Very pleased with the price.

This was needed for watering a planter bed of shrubs. The water spigot was located right next to the shrubs, so it is convenient and easier and cheaper than installing in-ground sprinkler system. In my area, the hardness of the water clogs up the hose after nearly daily use of it most of the year, so the hose must be replaced after about a year. There is nothing you can do about that, really.
I've gone through quite a few of the less robust, smaller-diameter soaker hoses over the past few years, always needing to replace them each year because they've torn. This hose is clearly professional-strength! A tip for new users, stretch it out for a while first to straighten it a bit and make it easier to handle, and it shouldn't really be a problem to put in place. My landscaping is going to be much happier, and I'm pleased to be using water more wisely. I believe this hose will save money in the long run because of the design. I will try to bury this hose approximately 4 inches deep to water thoroughly.

Price was right -- even not on sale -- compared to other brands. So I bought 8. BIG MISTAKE. not realized until I had them all unwrapped & installed. I had to replace the male end of each one because it leaked, even with new washers. AND I found that in places each one created a shower bath instead of soaking. Adding the cost of my time & of repair materials, not to mention frustration, these were VERY expensive. Stay away.

This was an absolutely horrible purchase. I made it through two waterings at low pressure before the hose sprung 2 leaks which shot water out several feet. Thankfully it wasn't an expensive purchase, but it was complete junk. I would give 0 stars if I could.
we just purchased 2 more of these great soaker hoses. that brings us to 4 now. they work perfectly. of course we drain them and store them in the garage over the winter so they won't freeze. we have had zero problems with them. the connectors are plastic so don't over tighten them as solid hoses are fitted with metal for the pressure. Craftsman has these hoses priced right, they are a bargain and far less expensive that most other round soaker hoses. Plus you get the Craftsman warranty. we are looking for 2 more but they are sold out locally so I am ordering them today. I see a lower rating here & simply don't understand them. we have 5 acres, have a huge veggie/berry garden and over 100 roses. these Craftsman soaker hoses are the best.
