Can I use a soaker hose as an aeration tube instead of Colorite’s Aero-Tube™?

Yes, but we strongly discourage it for the following reasons: Soaker hose is typically made with a thinner wall and is therefore likely to have a shorter lifespan than Aero-Tube™ aeration tubing. Aero-Tube™ products are specifically designed to provide air flow efficiently and create a small-sized bubble. Soaker hoses have significantly fewer and larger pores than Aero-Tube™ tubing and thus will require higher air pressure to operate, resulting in higher energy costs.
