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

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