EZ-FLO Hose Bib and Drip Systems Feed through a Garden Hose, Drip System or After the Irrigation Zone Valve Everytime You Water
EZ-FLO Hose Bib and Drip Systems can be connected in a variety of ways. Most people attach the unit to a standard exterior water faucet with anti-siphon protection (hose bib) existing on most homes. In addition, it can be connected to an existing sprinkler or drip irrigation system after any valve as long as the unit is only under pressure while it is operating.
A Hose Bib unit can be used by any homeowner, nursery or grower simply by attaching it to a standard water faucet. An optional connection kit allows a unit to be attached to an irrigation system.
Gardeners have long loved this unit for its ability to feed their flowers, trees and shrubs without constantly refilling the tank. It can be moved around to feed multiple areas.
Here are two common installation options for a Hose Bib and Drip system:
EZ-FLO manufactures three sizes of Hose and Drip systems with the size of the unit being the capacity of the holding tank for the concentrated fertilizer. EZ-FLO manufactures units in the following tank sizes:
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.
