A hose conducts water through its tubing to a specific location using a nozzle, while a soaker hose is perforated tubing that gently irrigates gardens or planted areas. Recovered-content garden and soaker hoses help create new uses for old tires and recycled plastics. EPA's designation specifically covers garden and soaker hoses containing recovered plastic or rubber.
