West Nile Virus Awareness Week; BE PREPARED!

wnvgraphWest Nile Awareness

Since the first reported case of West Nile Virus in New York City in 1999 West Nile Virus has spread across America like an epidemic, and it seems there is no easy way to eradicate the disease. So the best defense we have is education. By sharing the information we have about how mosquitoes breed and carry the disease we can do more than try and prevent from being stung, but rather prevent the mosquitoes from being born and becoming carriers of the disease at all.

West Nile Virus comes and goes in surges, but it never ever really goes away, making it particularly dangerous. As the reported cases of infection swell and contract the population is lulled into a carnal security thinking that it could never happen to them- that they would never be infected resulting in carelessness and a casual attitude toward mosquito disease.

wnv_us_human_map_week52Looking back to the year 2013, a total of 2374 cases of West Nile Virus were reported with 114 deaths attributed to the disease (down significantly from 286 deaths in 2012) and in 2014, the West Nile Virus has a strong potential to exceed the 2013 numbers due to the mild winter. Nevertheless, there is no surefire way to know what kind of mosquito season we will have this year, but one thing we can be sure of is our level of preparedness.


Transmission of the virus occurs through mosquito bites. This leads people to believe that the primary defense we have against the spreading of disease is taking action to prevent mosquitoes from biting you, your kids and your pets or animals.

Naturally people automatically think of mosquito repellent sprays as the primary defense against mosquitoes. However, they are widely varied in their cost, features and functionality.

deet cirPerhaps the greatest protection against mosquito’s bites is to wear long sleeve shirts and pants whenever possible in conjunction with a spray or repellent, because it’s not possible for the mosquitoes to bite your skin through the material of your clothing.

Just like cell phones and power companies have peak hours, so do mosquitoes! If you know when these hours are, than you can more easily avoid them and keep them from ruining your outing! Mosquitoes come out in full forces most often around dusk and dawn times of the day. Plan your day to avoid too early of a start or staying too late and you will experience less mosquito attack.


April Showers Bring May flowers…

April showers also bring standing water though, which brings forth new mosquitoes! NOW is the time to spread the word about mosquito awareness and most specifically West Nile Virus awareness.Empty any stagnant and free standing collections of water. Simply dump them out and turn the vessel upside down or prop it up so that it will not refill with water.


Other ways to prevent mosquitoes from collecting and breeding…

 For homeowners and small business owners that wish to take a proactive stance against mosquitoes and other insects in general there are a couple of suitable options.

  • Skeetobusters Mosquito RepellentContracting with a local pest control business will ensure that your property is pest free on a regular basis. With regular treatments of the property on a frequent basis the mosquito (and pest) population will stay low throughout the entire season. However this type of service can be expensive and prohibitive.
  • An excellent alternative that people can utilize is a fertigation/pestigation unit attached to their existing sprinkler system. These units are designed to be an all-in-one plug-and-play solution for all your fertilizing and pest control needs. It simply uses the existing sprinkler system to apply fertilizers and/or organic pesticides through the sprinkler heads to the grass and irrigated parts of the property thereby creating an effective boundary for pests. Units are available starting around $950 and can be installed quickly and easily by a certified installer or a savvy do-it-yourselfer. This may sound like an expensive investment initially, but it quite cost effective because it will continue to serve the property for years to come.
  •  There are some areas of your yard and/or property which are prone to gathering puddles. Tarps and tires are two of the most infamous offenders when it comes to standing water. Perhaps you have a rain collection barrel designed for capturing water or catch basins installed to carry away drainage water. These can be prime targets for mosquito breeding…especially because they are often physically obscured and hidden away from view. It is recommended that homeowners use an all natural super product to protect the areas and prevent them from becoming a breeding ground for your yard. By simply applying an appropriate measure of liquid cedar oil to the water (such as Best Yet & PCO by CedarCide) and the oil acts as a barrier by creating a thin layer on top of the standing water and repelling mosquitoes.
  • Secondly the oil will dehydrating and prevents any eggs that it comes in contact with from hatching. So it can be used effectively in several situations. (this type of oil is the same kind used in the sprinkler fertigation/pestigation units.)




The following are some ways that you can use a product like Best Yet to help combat the breeding and growth of the Mosquito population.


  1. Eliminate standing water on your property – Turn over kiddie pools, trash cans and lids and anything else that can act as a container for rainwater.  Fold and properly store all tarps in cool dry indoor area (tarps are a major offender for mosquito breeding grounds) Bring all tires indoors away from the sprinklers or rain (tires are prime mosquito breeding grounds due to their shape; they easily retain water and provide protection from sunlight and the elements. (tires imported into the US from outside have been the source of many new insects and pests being introduced to the country) Spray water collecting prone places down with the Cedar Based product to keep mosquitoes from returning to those places if they do collect water again.


  1. breeding groundsChange water catch pans for flower baskets. – Most flower pots have a water catch dish to allow excess water to exit out the bottom of the flower pot. This water should be discarded at least once a week. Treat the newly cleaned treat with cedar oil  to prevent mosquitoes from breeding in the water when it does fill up.


  1. Bird Baths and water fountains – keep the water running regularly to prevent mosquitoes from laying eggs. If the water is not running, clean out the old water weekly and treat with cedar oil.


  1. Permanent standing water – Some water cannot be emptied or it is intended to be there (i.e. rain barrels, drains and catch basins etc. For these types of situations it is recommended that you apply a liberal amount of Cedar Oil based product to the water. Because Best Yet it is an oil based product it will float on the top of the water causing a barrier against mosquitoes. The oil will remain there till it is washed away or emptied.

Earth Day; 12 EZ Ways to Conserve Water


At  Sprinkler Warehouse we take Earth Day seriously! We know that without Mother Earth and all of her beauty we wouldn’t be able to stay in business! We owe her a great deal of gratitude! To show our gratitude we have put together an Earth Day Sale that is running on the homepage of www.sprinklerwarehouse.com offering deep discounts on some of our most “environmentally friendly” products.

In addition to offering great deals on earth-friendly products we’d like to share with you all a few our our favorite tips for keeping mother earth a greener, more happy place for us all to share.

We all know that water conservation is very important and it will only grow to be more and more so as time goes on. But water savings do not have to come at a great sacrifice, there are ways to conserve water without even thinking about it!

Install a new Smart Sprinkler controller 
– By switching sprinkler controllers not only can you save significantly on your water bill but you can  also get a whole bunch of added features to save you time, money, and headaches. The latest generation of sprinkler controllers offer the ability to connect to be remote controlled from a smart phone or tablet connect to weather forecasting services as well as incorporating a variety of sensors to prevent over watering or unnecessary use of water.


Lawn clippingsDon’t fertilize in spring or summer, save it for fall – Fertilizer can be a big help on the way to a lush and green lawn. However, If water conservation is on your mind, your city is experiencing a drought or your community has rules against watering, it is best that you leave the fertilization task on your fall to-do list. Fertilizers require a great deal of water to be effective in bolstering a plants health. A good alternative is a fertigation system that applies fertilizers through the sprinkler system itself during normal watering schedules.


Mulch your clippings instead of bagging them – By choosing to not bag and remove clippings from the lawn those mulched up remains of grass blades will help to preserve moisture in the ground as well as deliver nutrition back the plants. Additionally mulched lawns absorb water better and suffer less from erosion. Another excellent benefit of mulching is that the mulch develops a mat which excludes light from penetrating thereby preventing the germination of (many varieties) of weeds. Fewer weeds = less competition for nutrients and moisture.


Aerate your lawn – Aerating your lawn creates small holes in the surface of the ground which allows water and oxygen down into the root systems of the grass. Lawns that aeratorare aerated regularly (once or twice a season) require a less water than do those which have not been aerated.


Check your water meter to check for leaks – Yards with in-ground sprinkler systems can be prone un-evidenced leaks. You could have a leaky faucet or valve connection with little or no evidence that water is being lost. If you live in a part of the country where water is metered, use the meter to determine if water is being lost. Shut of all water sources and write down the amount note the amount of water used on your meter. Allow 10 minutes and check if the number has changed to determine if there is a slow leak. Alternatively there is usually a leak indicator built into most water meters that (if spinning) indicates a leak in the system.


5551-000100-80-81_3 Create a compost pile instead of using the in-sink garbage disposal – Garbage disposals are a very handy part of modern living, however, they are big-time water wasters and they fill the pipes with solid matter that requires a great deal of water to move down line. Whenever possible discard scraps into a compost system or compost pile instead of sending them down the drain.


Adjust sprinklers to only water grass and not cement – over time rotor style sprinklers (and other styles too) will fall out of adjustment and the result is portions of the yard being watered which do not require water (i.e. sidewalks, decks, rock gardens etc.)  Adjust all sprinklers to only water the necessary areas.


Deep-soak your lawn every once in a while (tuna can worth) – It is recommended that every once in a while you allow your lawn to get a deep-soak watering. Because different soil types and sprinkler systems vary so greatly we cannot say how long the water should be ran to achieve the desired results, but it is recommended that you take a tuna fish sized can and place it in the yard in an place where it can catch regular water from the sprinklers. Once the can has been filled to the top, that is likely enough water to achieve the desired results. Frequent deep-soaking allows the water to get down into the roots where the water is needed most.


83dc70a2-adb5-4315-ac5a-753d12471073Water when it’s dark – When possible water the yard in the dark. The sunlight will cause the freshly dispersed water to evaporate too quickly.


Rain Barrel Catch system – Install a rain barrel water capture system to collect rainwater that comes off your roof. Use this water in your flower pots and other plants instead of watering with hose water.


hexenal_shutterstock_107230940_300Drip irrigation system for flowers and plants – Installation of a soaker hose or drip system in and around flower beds and gardens will greatly reduce the amount of over-watering. Drip systems can also be integrated with a rain-barrel catch system to use the captured water instead of fresh water.


Cut it high – Never cut more than 1/3 of the total length off of the grass. Cutting grass too short is one of the most commonly made mistakes by homeowners. They want to get a nice short “golf course” style cut and end up damaging the lawn.

Interview with a Raspberry Crazy Ant


(The following dialogue took place between myself and the Public Relations director for the Raspberry Crazy Ants. We discuss their name, housing preferences, attraction to electronics and pesticides.)

  •  (Introduction) 

Me: For the past month or so the news has been running stories about crazy ants; exploiting their dangerous and destructive nature. They are reportedly nomadic, choosing to not live in anthills the way their cousins do. Furthermore it is said that they are resistant to traditional methods of eradication. Because these ants are mobile  and travel in large army’s with several queen ants per colony it was difficult to get an interview with the species head ant and leader but after repeated attempts to contact him, we finally were able to schedule an interview with the species PR manager, who is also the marketing director and 15th generation grandson of the species pioneer ancestors who came to America for the first time over a decade ago.


Please help me to welcome R.C. Antonio to the stage


  • (Audience applause) 


  • (Guest Enters from left of stage, walking in a seemingly random and non-linear path to desk)



Me: We are very excited to have a real live crazy ant in studio with us, thanks so much for coming! Did you have a safe trip getting here? For weeks we have been hearing about the impending invasion of your species on the southern parts of the USA. What have you found to be the biggest obstacle to this year’s invasion.

R.C. :  Thanks for having me!My trip here was very good, thanks for asking!



Me:  For weeks we have been hearing about the impending invasion of your species on the southern parts of the USA. What have you found to be the biggest obstacle to this year’s invasion.

R.C. :   So far everything has been right on schedule. We are finding it especially easy to invade because of the high levels of apathy among people with respect to protecting their property. Not to mention the incredibly high number of electronics that are in homes making a perfect place for is to get inside and stay! So we are doing well, and I am happy to be here with you here today.



images-(4)Me: The media is referring to you as the “Raspberry Crazy Ant”…do you take offense to this name?

R.C. : Yes, we absolutely do not endorse the use of that moniker. Our real name is Nylanderia Fulva. But that is a mouth full and hard to remember. So,  I prefer to go by “Nyles” instead, even though it does make me sound like a character from downton Abby…it’s better than being referred to as an insane rubus fruit.



Me: Where did the name raspberry crazy ant come from?

R.C. :  Most people think that the Raspberry-Crazy  name is the product of a love for the sweet berry fruit, but this could not be further from the truth. We actually have little or no interests in the sweet berry-fruit at all, but we do have the same physiological needs that any other ant needs. The Raspberry portion of our name comes one of our arch-nemesis. For years we were able to move about relatively unnoticed staying basically off-the-radar. Till one day in 2002 we were exploring as we typically do, and a human took a particular interest in us.

That man was Tom Raspberry, and ever since that day we have been irreversibly marked in the media as being “Raspberry Crazy Ants”.  



Me: Where does the term crazy come from? — Because, as I sit here with you now, you seem to be quite cordial and well mannered!

R.C. : The media has long referred to our species and others like us as crazy because we choose to not conform to ant protocol by following each other in a line wherever we go. Instead we feel we can cover more ground and get more done if we think for ourselves and move independently of one another. Basically, we refuse to conform to the ant stereotypes and choose to be progressive and forward thinking we get called “crazy”. It’s a travesty and nothing more than run-of-the-mill lampoonery! We won’t stand for it.



Me: Why do you choose to not stay in anthills or underground colonies?

R.C. : We are free spirited and don’t want to be tied down to a single solitary area. Additionally, because we are so small and mobile it makes more sense for us to stay on the move and utilize the shelters we can find along the way. If a place is warm and can protect us from the elements, we can use it as a shelter.

As you can probably imagine, our travels throughout the southern United States we have seen a great deal of different electronics and gadgets where we have been able to stay and make home. Our favorite place to stay is probably flat panel TV’s.



2014-04-15_16-33-40Me:  Why do you prefer flat panel televisions?

R.C. : For a couple of reasons actually! The first reason is, like I mentioned, is warmth… in addition to providing an effective element of cover from the elements TV’s are perfectly warm and spacious too! It seems like as time goes by, the TV’s we are finding to stay in keep getting bigger and bigger! Additionally, it seems like the TV is the one electronic in the house that stays on for the longest.

The second reason is that we ants love the feeling created by electricity flowing through wires and circuit boards. The almost inaudible hum of electricity resonating though wires and circuit boards is something we just cannot get enough of! We love to find a TV that we can all fit inside of. We just settle into all the nooks and crannies inside of the case and relax as we enjoy that wonderful electricity warmth and feeling!



crazy-ant-006_largeMe: How can humans know if their electronics have been invaded by an army of heat seeking ants? Is there any tell-tale signs to watch for?

R.C. : There is no way to know for sure that you have been invaded, till it’s too late. In other words, once you see us and you can see that there are floods of us, than we have likely already infiltrated the warm places in your home and property. 

However, one surefire way to know (albeit too late) is by watching for equipment malfunction. When my fellow ants get inside electronics and they begin to make themselves fat and happy by chewing on wires. Sadly, their bodies can act as a conductor and once enough have died and are touching, the current can be carried through their bodies causing a short circuit. Short circuits often result in erratic behavior of electronics but most frequently death of that device occurs.



It is reported that you have taught yourselves to be impervious to the standard arsenal of repellents and insecticides.

R.C. :
When we are very young ants we go to ninja school. In school we learn to not succumb to the traditional methods of killing ants. We build a tolerance to the most commonly used pesticides so that when they are used on us we will not be harmed. Additionally, we learn to art of evasive maneuvering which lets us move in erratic and unpredictable directions making it almost impossible to catch us or crush us.



Me: It is rumored (and I apologize for being so cryptic) but is it true that when one of your fellow ants is killed that it releases a scent or pheromone that attracts other ants to that location like a sort of homing beacon?

R.C. : No apologies are necessary; this is actually a very good question. See, we love to chew through wires. Especially wires that have power running through them. There is just something about that soft flexible plastic they coat those wires with that is just so much fun to gnaw on and chew through. Unfortunately, as fun and satisfying as this habit is, it is also very dangerous for us. We are taught in our youth (at young ninja ant school) how to hunt and track. This is an important skill for us to be able to track down our fellow ants when they are in trouble and help them. Unfortunately when an ant chews a little too far into the center part of a wire that is alive, they will be electrocuted instantly. The result is a great many ants becoming attracted to that location.



best yet quart by cedarcideMe: Is there anything that you are resistant to? Is there anything that can kill you which you have not been able to build up a tolerance to?

R.C. : Actually, yes there is. And most people would say I am “crazy” to reveal this publicly, but I don’t care because after all I am a “crazy ant” right!?  

To answer your question… Cedar wood. Cedar oil is the worst!! We ants hate cedar oil products. Specifically products like “Best Yet” and “PCO Choice” from CedarCide. That stuff is like Kryptonite to us, if it gets on our bodies we die in less than a minute because of the hydrated silica in it.  Even if we do manage to avoid contact with it physically, the cedar oil in it messes with our pheromone systems and is just downright unpleasant to be around. We’d rather find a new home than deal with the ALL the problems cedar oil causes us.



Me: Why would you reveal this to the world so openly? Are you not afraid that people will use it to destroy your colony?

R.C. : To be honest… I am not afraid. Humans are so predetermined and set in their ways! They believe that to kill insects they have to use the most “powerful” insecticides that they can find at their local hardware store. They will never believe that something that is 100% natural, pet & child safe, and organic can be so lethal… So the odds of them actually getting it and using it are by far in our favor!



Me: Where did your type of ant come from and how did you get here to the United States.

R.C. : I am a 15th generation crazy ant, which means that my Great- great-great- great-great- great-great- great-great- great-great- great-great- great-great-Grandfather was the first of the Crazy Ants to come to America. The story of his travels has been a tradition in our family for years. Back around the year 2000 he and his family and a few other families of ants boarded a ship called the Royal Caribbean Rhapsody (I guess he must have been royalty?) So he and his queen wife, princess & prince children boarded the ship and were at sea 3 days before finally arriving at the port of Houston Texas. This was going to be the new home for the royal ant family.

Once they were on the new ground in North America they began to settle in and get comfortable. They quickly multiplied and reproduced. Before long the royal ant family had gone from just 4 to 4-million! They spread out to find new lands to conquer and found that Texas was a great place for them to live and prosper.

14 years later, here I am… I don’t consider myself to be a royal or anything like that, but I am proud of the progress our people have made and hope to take over the entire state of Texas, Florida and New Orleans in the next 15 years.



Me: That is fascinating! How neat to discover that you are the descendant of royalty! Is there anything else you would like people to know?

Skeetobusters Mosquito RepellentR.C. : Yes, we want to ask people to keep leaving their electronics on and their doors and windows open thereby allowing us to come in and settle into their homes and seek shelter and comfort in those warm electronics! Additionally I just wanted to let you know that if you would rather have us leave your home alone all together, they only need to spray around their property with Cedar Oil products from CedarCide. The best way to cover the entire grounds and ensure that you are fully covered is to use a system like the one from Skeetobusters that injects the cedar oil product into the sprinklers. Not only is it inexpensive, but also the most efficient and effective way to cover a larger area. When we come upon a yard thats been treated this way we will just move onto the next place and I won’t have to deal with the deaths of many more of my friends and cousins.



Me: Thank you R.C. Antonio for coming on our show and sharing some information about yourself with us. We wish you the best of luck in your endeavors and hope that we never cross paths with you or your family & friends.

R.C. : No problem at all, thanks for having me.

Adjusting sprinkler run-times monthly saves H2O + Money

timerlogo3Spring is now officially here (according to the calendar anyway!) And while some of the United States is still putting up with snowstorms and harsh weather, other parts of the country are beginning to see signs that a new season filled with the lush green hues of plant life and the beautiful array of colorful flowers is soon to be upon us!
Here in Texas, we are starting to feel the humidity in the air and the warmth of the summer starting to edge out the bleak and cold memories from the strange and abnormal winter season we just endured.

For those of us who have lawns and gardens to care for, it’s time to put away the snow shovels, and sidewalk salt and get out those lawn mowers and gardening tools.

It is also time to reset all the sprinkler controllers! That means going through and removing the watering times for each zone and resetting them to the appropriate spring settings.
Not surprisingly, each year we receive questions from people asking about “how long should I let me sprinklers run?”…”how often should I run my sprinkler system?”…”what is worse; too much water or too little?”

Seasonal timing chartThe biggest points to know and understand is that your grass needs less water at the start of the season, a lot in the middle and less towards the end. So it’s appropriate to change the watering schedule each month during the summer months.

The chart provided here is only a suggestion. Because the country is so large and diverse climatologically in addition to the wide variety of different grass types, you should consult your local nursery or watering authority to find out what is best for your needs. Many manufacturers provide calculators to help, like this one by Rain Bird.

For those of you who are reading this and thinking to yourself…“I have never changed the run-time  on my sprinklers, they have always just run for the same amount of time regardless of the season! — I don’t even know how to change them, I’m afraid I break something or mess them up somehow!” You don’t have to worry! There are solutions that make changing the run-times simple and easy to do! The first thing to look at is to read the owners manual for your sprinkler controller. If you don’t have a manual and cannot locate one, It may be time to upgrade your controller to a digital internet-enabled controller. These controllers are the absolute easiest of all to setup and manage because they have a user-friendly online program for managing all the features and functions of your sprinkler system. Their are a handful of different types of controllers you can get such as Irrigation Caddy, Cyber-Rain, and BlueSpray. The good news is that these new-age controllers are simple to install and surprisingly affordable! It’s one investment that will pay for itself with the money and time it saves you!

webappsAdditionally, if you live in a place where drought conditions prevent you from frequent watering or you have to pay for the water you use best to NOT water during the daytime hours of the day (10am through 6pm) The sun is just so hot during these hours that a majority of the water you apply to the lawn will never even reach the plants due to the high rate of evaporation.




Hey everyone, following the trend on twitter to post something from your past for “ThrowBack Thursday” we decided to post a picture of the homepage from SprinklerWarehouse.com from 10 years ago! It hardly seems like that much time could have passed since then (or that our site could have improved so much over time either!)


Since our humble beginnings in 1995 we have led the industry at every turn, take eager and thoughtfully planned steps stay ahead of the curve as the industry trendsetter instead of a follower.

In the time since this homepage was live we have grown tremendously, we outgrew our space and had to move to a new warehouse and office building. We built a showroom and a physical store with informational kiosks, iPads and computers out in the public areas for customers to use for learning and shopping. In the past 10 years we have also filled a WHOLE LOT of orders – almost a half million! (stay tuned for a promotion to celebrate our 500,000th order, which we are on track to achieve this summer).
facebook twitter gatorToday we carry 5100 different products in our online store including rental equipment and we are always adding more! We have big plans for the next year already in action that will help us to help you.

Replace Fertilizer and Pesticide with SOUND


For ages scientists have studied the effects of music on the life and growth of plants. Research has even focused on different types of music and the effects of various musical genres or even sounds and tones have on plant life. While doing this research it was also discovered that certain types of insects are effected by sounds as well. Depending on the kind of music or sound being played, certain insects can be attracted to an area, or an repelled from an area (presumably based on the sonic properties of the sounds being played.)

Using this technology as a basis and years of research and development, Sprinkler Warehouse is proud to have a partnership in place allowing them to be the first retailer anywhere to offer “Sonigation” systems. No more dangerous fertilizers. No more lethal pesticides. Home owners can replace both and while still achieving equivilant results using the power of sound alone!

Sonigation works using in ground sound emitters to distribute sound equally and evenly through the lawn and flower beds of your yard.  Sonigation diodes can be purchased in lots or individually and can be used in networked quantities as high as 200 units!

sprinkler_house_400The diodes will automatically sync with the others within a 30-foot proximity to create a network. The system as a whole is incredibly easy to install and can be done by anyone! simply place the waterproof sound producing emitters into your lawn, being careful to place 1 emitter within a 5 foot radius of each sprinkler head and no more than 30 feet apart.

The entire network of sound producing emitters is controlled over a proprietary wireless networking technology that syncs and connects itself automatically; no resetting connections or restarting a router or system box. To control the sounds being played over the network customers only need to download our free “S.W. Musicgation” app from the app store. The app will guide customers through the  a series of questions and inquiries to determine the exact best sound profiles to utilize to achieve the desired results.

2014-04-01_15-10-23Two different types of emitter are available for purchase at the launch. The standard sub-terrerian emitters and the hybrid emitter with a sky-facing speaker which allows the system to be used as an outdoor speaker system for entertaining and party use. Both styles are interchangeable with one another and can be mixed and matched. Emitters are made from a hybrid #7 plastic making them virtually unbreakable and crush-proof.  They can be run over with lawn mover wheels or walked on without any damage.

You can purchase one of the Sonigation basic setups by clicking HERE or by going to www.sprinklerwarehouse.com




With this new “musicagtion” system in place the result will be a pest-free, greener, happier, safer lawn for you and your family to enjoy.

Flavored water in your sprinklers!!


Make your summer fun the BEST EVER with flavored water in your sprinklers!!



Do you remember the hot days of summer as a kid? Riding bikes around the neighborhood with friends? Waterfights in the back yard? Jumping on the trampoline with the sprinkler under it?  Of course, we all do! Now that
we are all older, we want the younger generation to be able to enjoy some of those great things from the past. Kids today however are so overwhelmed by stimuli at every turn. iPads, and smartphones, TV’s and computers all fighting for their attention, it can be hard to captivate a child’s attention with something so simple.

shutterstock_96560185That is why we decided to take our favorite pastime of playing in the sprinklers on a hot day, and take it to the next level! Not just on a functionality level, but on a sensory level too!

Sprinkler Warehouse is now proud to add “Flavigation” systems to their family oif lawn and garden irrigation products. Flavigation was developed for the retail market by adapting the existing technology  for injecting fertilizers into the irrigation system for application through the sprinklers themselves. Food grade quality plastics and connections (similar to those used in bottled water and/or flavored drink production) have been used to build this system which can be added to any existing underground or above ground sprinkler system.

c_075_imageSimply connect the flavigation system to your current system using a Y-splitter or injection coupler as close to the water source as possible and mount the flavigation’s concentrate tank to a wall or post near the injection sight.

The flavigation works with all your favorite powdered drink mixes or frozen concentrates. By simply opening the injection tank and following the appropriate directions supplied with your flavor of choice, the flavigations proprietary injection technology takes care of the rest, sending out the appropriate blend of concentrate and water to deliver a delicious stream of flavored hydration through your exorcising system.
