The Type Of Hose You Should Install Before Selling Your Home
Extremely dry soil can alter a house's concrete foundation, leading to structural damage and a decrease in the property's value. To avoid this, install a soaker hose.
Unlike a standard garden hose, a soaker hose contains thousands of small holes throughout its length to let the water gradually seep out at a low-pressure level.
This hose helps the soil receive water evenly while managing ground contraction under your home. Keeping the ground moist can prevent costly repairs from foundation shifting.
A soaker hose can be 25-150 feet long and cost under $70. Get your required size, connect it to a water source, and lay it around your house about 12-24 inches from its foundation.
