    Shapeable watering hose

    Does anyone know of a product that is a standard watering hose, but if you flex it, it will stay in that shape?

    I'm lazy and want to setup some misters but I don't want to spend the time cutting and running pvc all over the place.

    Thanks,
    Nate

    How about a roll of that soft flexable copper tubing and some of these? Then you can screw in some .008, .012 or .014 misters... I use the .008, but at lower pressures the .014 would probably be what you're looking for.

    There's those segmented types of metal hoses that are used for plumbing under sinks and such. I'm not sure what it's called but I see it all the time.
    Is cutting PVC really that much trouble? A wire-loop pipe cutter costs like $3. You'll spend a lot more on specialty hoses.

    I agree with Joe. PVC isn't that bad, just cut, fit and glue.
    If you shake a rain stick, you get rain. I need a hamata stick.

    I might look into the copper tubing.

    Yes, I'm not looking to work with pvc. I do it all the time, but I'm looking for a flexible system. I don't want to spend hours setting it up, only to have the nozzle pointed 1/4" in the wrong direction, then having to redo it. Plus I change my plant arrangement all the time, I'd like to just use my hulk strength to adjust the watering patern on a whim as well.

    The sink hoses don't keep shape, but I was looking for a product along those lines.

    Thanks for the input.

    The problem with copper tubing is that it gets hard and brittle after flexing it a few times.
