      Great idea, I thought about doing the little sprayers but the soaker hose sounds better. I? got a bad back so what I want to do a hanging buckets to have tomateos peppers on the bottom and lettuce on top. Thanks again for the tip.

      Wait you own property in the country? and a Brooklyn brownstone…..what are you rich or something?

      soaker hose works great in the city where water pressure is high.
      In the country our well water pressure just isn’t strong enough to push the water thru a soaker hose (at least out in our garden). But? I imagine on a small scale it would work fine for anyone anywhere.
      Enjoyed the post!

      Thanks? for the tips. Here’s one for you if you pull the bit out of the screwdriver you were using it fit’s on the screw of the clamp and is way easier to tighten than the slotted top that keeps slipping off.

    9. erochow Says:

      @DBIGMAN812MANY yes, good point,? i should have told people about that one. eric.

    10. erochow Says:

      @1betrman you might want to consider changing? out the pressure switch on your well. at my house in the country i have a spring that feeds the water system, and i have a 20/40 psi pressure switch and the soaker hoses work well with it. thx, eric.

    11. erochow Says:

      @pavelow235 no, we bought the apartment really cheap ( it needed a lot? of work ), and our house upstate was going to be burned down by the local fire department for firefighting practice ( it needed a lot of work too ) eric

    12. erochow Says:

      @TheVbird420 yeah, i had originally just looped the soaker hose over? the lip of each container, then i had this ” aha ” moment. and i had some old garden hose laying around. eric.

    13. erochow Says:

      @bmeyer44 rooftops in NYC are great. we have a view? of a lot of BKLN and the bay.

    14. erochow Says:

      @loislaney23 editing is everything…?

    15. erochow Says:

      @MegaShaytardfan the sprayers ( emitters ) are good, but you have to bring them in before the frost date, soaker hoses? leak out water, so they don’t freeze and crack. they do wear out after a few years though.

    16. 1betrman Says:

      @erochow
      ditto: have replaced the whole shooting match over the past 20 years and have? still never been satisfied with my water pressure vs my city water pressure.But the trade off is that I have the best tasting water in the world drawn from my well.I certaintly appreciate your reply!
      Mant thanks from the Magnolia State!

    17. ndktube Says:

      @1betrman I had the? same issue with rain barrel water–not enough pressure to drive water thru a soaker hose.

      Eric cool idea. Plants in pots dry out almost instantly. That’ll work as long as you never want to move the pots around!

      Did you really lose that country property? That’s too bad.

    18. kokohawk Says:

      I’ve been wondering on an easier way to water all of my pots. I have probably about 40 and? it takes forever. I might have to tweek this idea a little but this would definitely work.
