Fill Valve Retrofit Kit for HC Units
So easy to use and with it doing the fertilizing, it’s such a timesaver.
Like it for its quality build, simple operation and plainly the fact you can leave it alone at the tap and walk the hose, no lugging watering cans, no venturi fiddle. Simple and it saves your back as well
I love these!!!! I love them so much, I bought eleven of them. My soil is pretty bad, and I needed something that would help me fertilize my plants daily. I put one for each of my garden beds plus some newly planted trees, added fish fertilizer, and everything just exploded.
I bought this to fertilize my lawn when watering and it has performed a good job. I recommend getting a pressure vacuum breaker to install on your hose bib; these are available at your local hardware store. The hose fit very tightly so disconnecting them can be a challenge. I bought Sharkbite ProLock Push couplers to facilitate an easier disconnection. I recommend it and would buy it again.
Great product my watermelon patch took off fast after putting this in line
It works as advertised, and as long as you follow the instructions to the letter, it will work wonders. This has been invaluable to fertilize my garden, plants, and trees. I have been using it twice a week for three weeks so far.
construction solide et explication claire.
if you have a sprinkler system and want to simultaneously fertilize then stop looking and buy it! I did have to order a pipe to adapt to to my sprinkler system from ez flows site but after that it went together super easy! after that I just picked up the qt bottles of concentrated fertilizer from home depot and my lawn couldn't look better.
great so far. Easy to use.
This tool helped us bring back a badly hail ravaged garden with small injections of fish emulsions in our drip irrigation system.
Really easy to use and quite useful.
Just as described. Fast shipping..
Easy to use and setup, and my garden is very happy.. Beware of the Merchant you buy this from.. Some of them will not Read your Shipping Instructions.. But the Product is Awesome!
This unit worked the first time with no issues and provided the expected amount of fertilizer within the period to time calculated. It was also easy to setup. I would not hesitate to purchase another one.
I had a mazzei vacuum fertigator that did not work that well. Then I switched to the EZ-Flow 10 gallon gig (I have 2 1/2 acres). Wow the EZ-Flow is awesome. Some advise..use organic fertilizers, my dogs (and birds) like to drink from the tree wells as they are filling up, that is no problem with organic fertilizer. "IF" I was using chemical fertilizers I would be stressing about my animals drinking from the tree wells. This smaller model would work fine for a tract home. Run stuff like essential, organic iron, and watch your landscaping take off. Also I contacted "Jeff" at EZ-Flow he gave me some great advise..not only is the unit awesome, but so is the company and its staff. Amazon needs to carry the larger units, and they are not cheap...but should last forever and you could take the unit with you if you moved. I would leave my tractor, mower, and yard equipment if I were to move...but I would take my EZ-Flow with me wherever I went.
I have a larger drip system for all patio plants and palms around a pool. This unit attaches at the faucet end and feeds all plants as it waters them. I wish I bought it years ago. If in doubt, go for a larger unit to reduce the frequency of refilling it with food.
This is an easy to install system that is complete out of the box and works very well. I was concerned about the price but decided to give one a try. Since then I have purchased three more. We have a number of gardens that are irrigated using a drip system connected to hose bibs. The EZ-FLO simply connected at that point. We have never had so many large and productive plants. Next year the plant spacing will have to be doubled to accommodate their mature size.
I installed the EZ Flow inline with my drip system. It was very simple, in fact I tried to over-think the installation. When the fertilizer did not begin flowing on the first use, I went to the instructions and found the fix (a flo disc) and it started working immediately. Loading the fertilizer into the tank can make a mess, but I see that there is a wide-mouthed funnel available for solving that at their website. No tricky/fragile parts on the system so I expect it will work for years to come. I can't wait to see the results - the greenhouse where I buy my annuals said that they fertilize(drip) their plants twice a week using a 20-20-20 mix.
One other note: the quarter inch drip piping works fine for the black side and quarter inch icemaker white / clear tubing is good for the clear / colored side.
Update may 2015
This years plantings are amazing with lush flowers and foliage. We use a small container of miracle grow in the one gallon tank. Beautiful results. Thinking of getting the larger 2+ gallon size. Right now covering 16 flower boxes on my deck.
I'm using the 1 gallon EZ-FLO fertilizer injection system to water the plans in my back yard and the 3/4 gallon unit for my vegetable garden. They are both working beautifully. I have the flow rate set to the lowest possible setting, so a tiny bit of fertilizer is injected into the hose every time I water. (I'm using Dyna-Gro Grow liquid fertilizer rather than Miracle-Gro. The Dyna-Gro has many more trace nutrients.) The results have been nothing short of spectacular. With zero work on my part, the plants are much greener and growing like crazy. The potted Tuberous Begonias on my back deck are getting huge and one has flowers that are almost six inches across. At my rate of usage, the reservoir looks like it will last roughly a month before it needs refilling. Incidentally, not shown on the picture are two small valves that sit in the entry and exit lines. When I want to just water everything, a half-turn cuts off the fertilizer flow.
This unit is designed for both continuous pressure and on/off operation. The tank is made of a heavy-weight plastic that looks like PVC pipe and should easily withstand years normal use. The other hose-bib models are made of a different type of plastic (polyethylene?) and cannot be used under constant pressure...you have to depressurize them (turn off the water supply and let the hose drain) after each use or risk them eventually rupturing.
The EX-FLO fertiler system is the second one that I bought. The first was the larger system that I connected to one of my outside faucets and left it there for the growing season. This system is 1/3 third the size and allows it to be easily mobile so I use it on three other faucetys depending upon where I need it. Works well - very handy!
Very pleased, was delivered on time. Works as advertised. I'm using it for my hydroponic garden and all I have to do now is just go check on the garden from time to time and pick fruit and eat.
