I have a system of soaker hoses in my backyard and they work fairly effectively. Recently I bought some attachments to the hoses, small sprayers, small feeder attachments and so on, but I can find no instructions how how to use all of these attachments. Is there a website that shows we how to attach all of these. Also, How do you attach the smaller soaker hoses (the ones you cut) to the feeder hose?

Home irrigation equipment is usually sold as a kit or specific product line with specific add-ons for each kind of system. If you are trying to add individual "spaghetti tube" type emitters, these would not be added to the "leaky pipe" type of soaker hose that seeps water. Instead, you would need a flow or pressure regulator and a solid style hose. I would suggest you contact the manufacturer(s) of your soaker hoses and attachments for instructions on how to use and configure their products to do what you are trying to achieve.

In the meantime, here is some information about designing drip systems that should be helpful in getting an overview for how it all works together.

Good luck with your project!
