Irrigation help

danfobinMay 22, 2013

I have a 1000ltr water butt connected to about 80ft of soaker hose split into 3 sections. The pump i have just purchased is rated at 3.5bar .

I need to know if this will be to much pressure for the soaker hose ? and how much pressure do i really need ? can any one help

Thank you for reporting this comment. Undo

Looking that up online, 3.5 bar measures out to be about 15 psi. Soaker hose should be run around 25 psi.
