EZ-FLO 3060-BV Low Flow Ball Valve Hose Connector
The 3060-BV has a ball valve between the inlet and outlet connection fittings that can be adjusted to increase feed rates over the standard feed rates and to provide feeding capability in drip systems with less than 2 gallons per minute of water flow. It replaces the hose bib connector that comes with the hose and drip systems.
- Install in minutes
- Water tight seal
I ordered the 3/4 gas EZ-Flo 2005 to connect to a hose-end sprayer. I intend to used it to spray fungicide, etc, on my lawn which is 6000 sq ft. The description of this Ball Valve says it increases feed over the standard. Does this mean it can increase the flow of fungicide to more than 1.2 oz per gallon? If I am in the right direction, about how many oz can the flow of fungicide be increased to?
Any help will be appreciated.
this item is designed to be used with one of fertilizer tanks such as: EZ Flo 2005-HB 3/4 Gallon Hose Bib and Drip System
you then mix the fertilizer with water in the tank and connect the two 1/4 tubes coming from the tank to the two nipples on the side of this flow ball. One end of the flow ball connects to your hose and the other end connects to the water faucet.
There are various blends of fertilizer available at this link.
I purchased two blends.
One for vegitables EZ Flo GRM102030-25 Start/Transplant 10-20-30 Fertilizer (25 lbs)
and the other for my wife's flowers. Grow More All-Purpose-25 All-Purpose 15-30-15 Fertilizer Mix (25 lbs)
This tank works great. Don't leave it out in the sun and don't leave it under pressure all the time.
The nipples are made of plastic so you should order two of these flow balls. That way you'll have a spare if one breaks.
This was probably more info that you wanted. Hope it helps.
The valves branch off the main line along the way to each area.
Can't I use the EZ Flo to fertilize all zones by installing it between the back-flow preventer and the first valve on the system?
Thank you for your help,
Depending on how much each section of garden irrigation uses per minute/hour, you may have a hard time setting the EZ-Flo ball valve correctly such that it siphons the correct amount. :)
