EZ-FLO Hose and Drip systems can be installed in minutes by the average homeowner and are great for use when you don't have a dedicated irrigation system or want to separately address certain types of plants that require specialty garden fertilizers and supplements.
The standard hose installation includes the hose bib adapter. If the hose bib is not separately protected from backflow then a standard anti-siphon valve will also need to be purchased (Part #3050). In order to convert a Hose and Drip feeder to single sprinkler valve connection, a separate conversion kit is available for purchase (Part #THD-CNV).
Finally heavy duty shutoff valves can be separately purchased to isolate the unit from the water stream for when you wash the car or when you need clear water from the hose end. (Part #SOV). These shut-off valves have quick connects that eliminate the need to screw the tubing onto the cap when refilling.
It is important to note that the tanks of these units are made of polyethylene plastic that is not designed to withstand constant water pressure. They need to be depressurized after each use in order to ensure a long service life. They can handle up to 80 PSI (5.5 bars) in their operating mode which is the normal maximum pressure limit for most plumbing systems. All standing water pressure should be relieved after each use.
