By slowly soaking only the area you need, plants grow strong and lush with minimal run-off. The Flate Soaker Hose is easier to use than standard soaker hoses which are hard to bend and even harder to store. The flate design rolls up tightly to store in a small space. Flattens for easy storage. Extends to 50 feet. Extremely flexible for easy placement. Backed by a Melnor Limited 2-Year Warranty. We stand behind our products.
