Specialized Products Available At Sprinkler Warehouse
This article is a collection of some of the more interesting products that the Sprinkler Warehouse has for sale. Some are just interesting, some are downright useful and one made me look twice and then start laughing. You get to figure out which one.
Underhill Traveling Sprinkler
The Underhill Traveling Sprinkler Tracker offers a very economical solution for supplementing seasonal watering needs of 1/4 acre to 2-acre areas. It is also ideal for irrigating athletic fields, cemeteries, golf course roughs, or other large areas where an underground system is impractical. Built to last with precision German engineering and high-quality materials, this portable powerhouse can irrigate an entire football field in just two passes.
Tracker requires minimal labor to operate. Powered by water, it pulls itself along a nylon cable, dragging up to 360 ft. of 1 in. reinforced heavy-duty hose (sold separately). Each pass irrigates about 2/3 acre per 8 hours of operations. Click here to purchase the Orbit Traveling Sprinkler
Magnum Hose Nozzle
I want one: the Magnum Hose Nozzle. I am far from gentle in using tools. When I am through watering I just drop the hose and nozzle. Doesn’t matter if I’m on grass or concrete, on the ground or on the ladder. Later I go to the hose bib and start pulling in the hose. Across the yard. Through the gate. Did you know that when pulling a hose and nozzle through the yard and around a corner that the nozzle handle acts like a grappling hook? Do you know that when it’s 100 degrees outside I have little patience and just pull harder? Did you know that most nozzles have many or are all plastic parts? After dropping the nozzle on concrete and catching it on the gate I replace the nozzle every year. This is better. It’s all-metal, has no handles to catch, and will survive my abuse for years. I’ve already proven I can’t learn new tricks. Might as well buy something that puts up with my old ones. Click here to browse sprayers and nozzles.
Another Interesting Product For Sale: Artificial Rocks
Ever notice that no matter how much you try to clean your backyard there is always something that really doesn’t fit anywhere? Especially if you have kids. There’s always that one toy, that one tool or hose or gas can, or just general clutter that never seems to go away. Now you don’t care if it goes away. You won’t be able to see it. Look at the Storage Rock. Open it up, fill it up, close it. No clutter, no problem.
Artificial rocks are useful for hiding backflow preventers. They may be a better choice for you if you’re looking to stay discrete with your sprinkler equipment. The Sprinkler Warehouse offers rocks in all shapes, sizes, and colors to help match your landscaping needs. Click here to shop for backflow cages and enclosures.
Wire Mesh Grips
The final interesting product for sale is the wire mesh grip. Remember those woven finger traps you had as a kid? Put your fingers in and the harder you pull the harder it holds. Well, they grew up, just like you did. The Wire Mesh Grips work the same way. Put the pipe in, start pulling and the grip just gets tighter and tighter. Wire Mesh Grips are used for pulling irrigation pipes, insulated wire, wire rope, tubing, PVC, and bare conductors. Far easier than pulling by hand and automatically adjusts to the size of the pipe. No programming is needed. Click here to shop for wire mesh grips.
Turf Spy Glasses
Superman’s x-ray vision has nothing on these. The TurfSpy glasses let you see problems early, long before they are visible to mere mortals. The earlier you treat turf disease the faster it goes away. Not only do you stop disease and infestations before they start, but you also look good doing it.
Mobile Garden Planter
Next is the mobile garden planter. It has wheels! Now, you might wonder why that is exciting. I’ll tell ya’. I live in Houston, Texas. There is a law here that says we cannot get freezes unless it is a year in which I bought my wife new plants for the entry and walk. Then the freeze comes and I have to move all the plants inside. I have been told that, while my efforts are appreciated, the rusty Little Red Wagon does not really go with our decor. These will.
