Soaker Hose Blocked

Answered by Harrod Horticultural Posted in Category Watering

Dear Martin

I have soaker hose in my polytunnel and I think it might be clogged up as we have water high in manganese that deposits brown residue. Is there a way I can clear the pipes out?

Thank you

Dear Janet

Regarding your blocked soaker hose, I would advise you to take the bung/end stop out of the end of the hose and turn the tap on full to blast out any debris.

That should do the trick!
