Nothing Compares to the Results You will Enjoy with an EZ-FLO Automatic Fertilizing System
Having an EZ-FLO System is like having a full-time gardener fertilizing your property every time you water, carefully feeding the entire landscape and caring for the soil and all the plant life. EZ-FLO feeds gently, in small amounts, every time your irrigation system waters, allowing the plants to develop healthier root masses that make them stronger, more drought tolerant and less susceptible to insects and disease.
Fertigation is the Superior Way to Fertilize
There are numerous studies documenting the effectiveness of applying fertilizers using fertigation vs. traditional granular application of fertilizers. Fertilizer uptake into the plants can be as high as 90% vs. much lower absorption levels for traditional fertilizers, even those that are time released. Much of the country’s non-point source pollution (NPSP) results from fertilizer runoff. EZ-FLO virtually eliminates fertilizer runoff since it is supplied to the landscape in small amounts and therefore most of the fertilizer can be absorbed by the plants.
EZ-FLO is The Responsible Way to Fertilize
Using an EZ-FLO fertigation system eliminates exposure to harmful chemicals that may be contained in other fertilizers. We suggest the use of fertilizers which are classified as “non-hazardous”. EZ-FLO dispensing systems allows you to apply these non-hazardous fertilizers in minute (trace) amounts.
EZ-FLO has obtained a number of patents in flow technology that allows for micro-dosing, consistently over the fill cycle. The ratio of water to full concentrate fertilizers can be as little as 15,000 to 1, or 66 parts per million (PPM). Since fertilizers are never sold in 100% concentrated form, the PPM mixture at the sprinkler head or drip emitter is always a fraction of this number.
For example, using a 25-15-10 blend of fertilizer (% NPK in the fertilizer) the ratio of fertilizer to water is further reduced to 16.5 parts per million Nitrogen (N), 10 parts per million Phosphorus (P) and 7 parts per million Potassium (K). The US Government levels for nitrates in Clean Drinking water is 10 PPM. As a result, this proportioning rate is only slightly higher than the allowable amount for clean drinking water, as defined. Although no fertilizer containing nitrogen is completely “safe”, using an EZ-FLO system to dispense fertilizers in small concentrations is the most responsible way to fertilize.
As a reference analogy, one part per million corresponds to one minute in two years or one penny in $10,000. Traditional fertilizers are applied in doses hundreds of times more powerful than what EZ-FLO delivers on the Slow setting.
Why would you continue to risk exposing your children and pets to traditional granular fertilizers when there is another alternative available?
EZ-FLO Systems are a Sound Investment for Your Landscape
Most people have a significant investment in their landscaping either from paying a landscape contractor for installation and maintenance or through their own “sweat equity.” EZ-FLO protects your substantial landscape investment and costs only a fraction of what you paid for your plantings or your irrigation system. Since you will typically use 70-90% less fertilizer and 25-50% less water, it pays for itself in no time! All while reducing or eliminating the need for expensive and environmentally dangerous herbicides, pesticides and fungicides.
Transplant shock can be virtually eliminated when you use an EZ-FLO system and fertilizers with new plantings. Landscapes mature more quickly giving you greater enjoyment for the money spent. Our systems are designed to provide years of trouble-free service to protect your landscape and to save you time.
