Help - soaker hose won't drip
Started using soaker hoses last year ~ finally. Bought several EcoFlo 50' 10 year warranty hoses on Amazon. Got 2 down, DH popped one with a garden spade, so that left one in use for last year and several new ones to install now.
Here's the snag ~ In hooking one of the new hoses to the end of last year's hose, i'm finding that water is running well through the old hose and the connected new hose is dripping nicely, but not a single drip is showing up on the outside of the old hose.
I've tried rubbing a spot with a wet cloth to see if there's some sort of undetectable barrier (dust, dirt) but makes no difference.
What would you recommend to get this one year old hose dripping and to prevent this from happening to the other new hoses. Thanks.
