Weeping Hose Kits & Components Greenhouse
Weeping Hose (or soaker hose) is designed for use directly on the surface of the ground or buried beneath it - up to a maximum of 15cm below the surface. It is therefore suitable for watering crops that you are growing in your greenhouse or polytunnel direct in the ground - such as tomatoes, cucumbers, strawberries etc. To keep Weeping Hose supplied with water it needs to be either supplied from mains water or from a pumped supply - such as using a Pump with your water butt. When laying out the weeping hose you should use standard ó" / 13mm hose and connectors to take the water from your outside tap or pump to where the weeping hose starts. Weeping hose can be laid in straight lines or snaked around beds - barbed fittings are available when you need to take the hose around a sharp bend or to divert water off in more than one direction.
