Installer

Doing it for yourself or Adding value to your Job. Is that what you'd like?

Here you can take the work out of watering soft landscaping. Once you've installed Leaky Pipe porous rubber hose, there's little to do that water more in the drought and less when it's damp. - See the investment in plants establish quicker and grow-on faster.

It can be as simple as just connecting a length of Leaky Pipe to a hose via a hose connector, laying it where you want the water to be applied, then turn the water on! As a guide, you don't leave it on always, because you'd be overdoing it. Every position has differing requirements, but as a "rule of thumb", 30-60minutes of watering time per day, (or any combination that suits you), is a good starting point. This is where "simple to set" timers that can be connected to your tap, are brilliant investments. They can come in many shapes and sizes, but the ones we offer we select to be easy to program, reliable and at reasonable price. We recommend them to help take the drudgery out of remembering to turn the water on with the all important "remembering to turn it off" too!

Watering a hedge, or group of hedges, is straightforward, but a whole garden? How? Big or small gardens, - the answer is always the same. If you want to avoid dragging hosepipes around, you need to consider how to distribute water around the garden to all the places you wish to water. This means you decide on a route where you can run a non-porous, polytube (pipe), (either overground or under the surface), from your source of irrigation water and on to the places you'll be connecting the Leaky Pipes. Our 16mm or 20mm, black plastic Polytube is ideal for this for most Garden situations. 20 or 25mm MDPE ("blue pipe") can also be used, if you need a heavier duty pipe as your "main". For the latter, you will need to use compression fittings and compression to barbed fittings to then connect the Leaky Pipe. With the Black LDPE Polytube of ours, you can just use the cheaper, natural barbed fittings.

We make different porosities of Leaky Pipe for different applications, but the Leaky Pipe LP12H (the generally used pipe), will water up to a 50metre length, when water is applied to one end, while sealed at the other end. Please note - This is a limitation on the recommended length for a single lateral of Leaky, NOT a limitation on how much Leaky you can get working at one time. The latter is indeed infinite and is only limited by the strength of the water source and how you plumb it around a site. So, this is the same philosophy for a 30hectare development site to a 20metre by 10metre Urban Garden. The only real difference is in the way you distribute the water around to the Leaky Pipes.

Please take the time to watch our design video, that we hope will help you see ideas on how to achieve a "system installation", yourself.

Laid on the surface, so you can see what Leaky Pipe does, is a normal approach. Once done, many users will cover the pipes with a mulch, to help conserve moisture and help it spread to roots. This method allows users to lift the Leaky at the end of the Season, do maintenance and then replace or re-locate for the next season. If you are intending the Leaky Pipe to stay in situ, watering for as many years as you choose, then place it under the surface. Originally, when we developed this idea in the 80's, Leaky Pipe was designed for sub-surface use. Being a porous rubber hose rather than a "pipe with holes in", It will work reliably under the surface of many materials. Soils, sand, compost, straw, capillary matting - we've supplied it to many positions. It works.

Our story and manufacture

We have more experience in this field than anyone in the UK

We started with the concept of a Porous Rubber Hose for water and aeration applications back in the early 1980's. The idea was raw, but with our background in Horticulture and Farming, we applied Leaky Pipe to the commercial growing of Soft Fruits, Vegetables, Nursery Stock and Cut Flowers. As confidence grew in the product, we began to tune Leaky Pipe into various types and started to introduce it to Professional Landscaping, as a plant establishment aid. By 1987, the basic, "ease of installation" characteristics brought us to realising that anyone who was interested in improving a Garden, big or small, could easily DIY this. The next move was to start flying the Leaky Pipe Flag at events like The RHS Chelsea Flower Show and Landscape Exhibitions.

Although this seems a long time ago, we still have people contacting us who bought product then, who have been so pleased with it's longevity & they wish to buy some more. This, anyone can order now online, or over the phone with us, right here. It won't take long to get to you. Sometimes it can be overnight.

We now produce all the genuine Leaky Pipe, "in house", here in Kent. This way, we can be sure of it's quality. You may see other porous rubber hoses in the market. Some may be cheaper. We make no bones about cost, because we will not cheapen our standards of quality, materials and production to make a poorer Leaky Pipe. We built our reputation on the quality of the Pipe and the Systems. Maybe look at our news section to see some of the variety of uses "Leaky" has been applied to?

Test samples are taken and approved on every roll produced. As our products have always been used professionally, we take our quality seriously.
