Durable Hose Nozzle



Are you tired to buy a new nozzle for every season? It’s easy to break a plastic hose nozzle when you drop it to the ground after watering. The water full inside the nozzle and the hose makes it heavier when impact to the ground. The plastic nozzle becomes fragile after a period of time bathing in the sun, to hit it on the hard ground could be easy to make it break and start to leak. You have to turn off the tap and go for a new one. Why should you waste the precious leisure hours doing this?

A durable quality metal nozzle could be an answer. The traditional type nozzle is easy to use, no need for special care after watering and it could last for a long life time.

Check Yi Zuo’s metal nozzle on the website.

Garden Hose Kit with different choice of Nozzles

A garden hose is a flexible tube used to carry water. There are a number of common attachments available for the end of the hose, such as sprayers and sprinklers (which are used to concentrate water at one point or spread it over a large area). Hoses are usually attached to a hose spigot (tap).

Garden hoses are commonly green and often black, but can also be found in a variety of other colors. Garden hoses are typically made of synthetic rubber or soft plastic, reinforced with an internal web of fibers. As a result of these materials, garden hoses are flexible and their smooth exterior facilitates pulling them past trees, posts and other obstacles.

Garden hoses are also generally tough enough to survive scraping on rocks and being stepped on without damage or leaking. Most garden hoses are not rated for use with hot water, and their packaging will generally specify whether or not this is the case.

Typical hoses used for filling of the potable water tanks in recreational vehicles are similar to garden hoses but are made of nonporous materials that are less likely to collect bacteria or affect the water's taste. They are colored white as a distinguishing characteristic.


Standards and connectors
Garden hoses connect using a male/female thread connection Spigots typically have male connectors and the hose has a captive nut which fits the threads. The technical term for this arrangement is a hose union). The threads (the main US standard is known as GHT - "garden hose thread"- it has an outer diameter of 1.0625 inches (26.988 mm) and a pitch of 11.5 tpi) at each end of a typical garden hose mate with one another, which allows multiple garden hoses to be linked end-to-end to increase their length. Small rubber or plastic seals are used in female ends to prevent leakage. Sometimes these seals disintegrate or fall out of older hoses, which results in high-pressure leakage spraying from the hose.

YI ZUO supplies many different type of Nozzles for your choice to connect with either PU recoil hoses or EVA recoil hoses as a Garden Hose Kits as below:

Watering your Lawn and Garden with more efficient way to save water...

The great civilisations of history know the importance of irrigation. From the Egyptian communities of the Nile, Babylon and Rome they all built cisterns, reservoirs and canals to bring life giving water to their communities.  

Professional gardeners know that without the right amount of water, timely placed, plants do not thrive.  It is always clear which gardens are irrigated: their beds look alive, their plants flower for longer and there are no visible gaps. 

Our passion for conservation understands that we are a steward of our resources. We should have used the most water efficient systems, eliminating waste and ensuring that the cost is at a minimum.  We maintain the systems to ensure optimal performance, the controllers simple to operate.  
--- Water Timer --- Installing on your tap, to set up specific days and duration to 
                                            water/irrigate your Lawn and Garden.



--- Sprinkler --- Using the tap adaptor to connect with hose, then to 
                            connect with Sprinklers for watering your Lawn and Garden 
                            regularly from the program setting of water timer.



Our Sprinkler choices...



How to test the sprinkler timer you bought?


Many plants require water during the coolest part of the day, rather than the hottest. Some plants require a very small amount of water whereas others require a large amount of water. If you are concerned about your sprinkler timer not working when it should, test it to determine if it works properly

1. Although the exact method will vary depending on the brand and model of timer you own, the process is relatively similar for most models.
For example of our water timer #WT-058 :
Press the "Menu/O.K." button for 3 seconds on the control panel.
The prog. set as ON.
Then set up the weekdays of today
Set when to start watering time <set up 5mins later than current time>
Set the “Run Time” = watering period of how many minutes. <set 3 mins>
Set the Mist cycle for split the watering period. <set 1 mins>
Se the “Cycle time” from 1hour upto 7 days  <set 1hour>
Set which weekdays you wish to water your lawn with Raindrop icon <set today’s weekday>
All above step can press the up/down arrow to adjust the figures.
Once you finish the setting, the screen will flash once & get into set program.
< However since you are testing the sprinkler, set the watering time for 15 minutes from the current time of day.>
 
2. Press the "On" button on the control panel. The valve will open for 30 mins. And count down from 30 to 0 min. You can check it with your watch.

3. Wait for the sprinkler to come on. Timer it with a clock inside. The timer should come on at the exact time you set and then turn off after the exact duration you set. If it does not perform properly, you likely have a defective unit

Take care your potted plants with water timer - WT-058


Not every one could own a big garden with wide lawn. However they could also enjoy the green life with the potted patio plants. Potted patio plants are beautiful to look at and a way to decorate outdoor living spaces. The biggest problem with potted outdoor plants is that the soil dries out much quicker than plants in the ground or even indoor potted plants. While you can monitor the moisture levels when you're at home, taking a vacation presents a problem. To resolve this, set up your own automatic watering system to keep the patio plants alive until you return.

1.       Attach an electronic water timer to the end of an outdoor water faucet by screwing the nut until it is tight. Use the instructions provided with the timer to set it to come on for one or two hours each morning.
It depends on the real situation, you could water from 1 to 199 minutes according to your needs with WT-058. Do not forget to set the watering weekdays from Monday to Sunday. Under some conditions, you don’t have to water the potted plants everyday.
For example, to water the plants one hour in the morning on Monday, Thursday and Saturday. Set run time 60 minutes in the morning, set the cycle time for 1 day and the working day on Monday, Thursday and Saturday, the timer will star to water in the morning for one hour and restart again in the next programmed day.  
2.       Attach a soaker hose to the bottom of the water timer.
3.       Stretch the soaker hose around to the nearest patio plant pot and wrap it loosely around the plant. Push the hose down so that it sits on top of the soil inside the pot.
4.       Stretch the soaker hose to the next patio plant and repeat the procedure to insert the hose into the pot. Continue using this method until the hose is wrapped around each plant that requires watering.
5.       Return to the water faucet and take the water panel from the timer, you could set it in your comfortable place. Connect the panel to the body and start the programmer. There is a cover to protect the LCD screen, if you need to check the watering time, just open the cover and see the digital screen.
Yi Zuo’s water timer makes gardening an easy activity for your daily life.

DIY your own rain barrel from a trash can




To collect the rainwater and use it to outdoor gardens, lawn and trees is an economic way to save a lot of money. The actual savings are dependent on the catchment area leading to the rain barrel. Rain is a renewable item and there is a long history about people to use the rainwater.
Today we could gather the rainwater to the rain barrel, however it’s another expense to buy a high volume rain barrel. Making it from a trash can is inexpensive for water usage that you store up and use on demand by attaching a garden connector and garden hose on the bottom.

A simple valve to control the water flow could be a good helper to manage the water usage of rain barrel. 
Yi Zuo has a full range of plastic connectors: 



As well as the garden hose could be a important part to the rain barrel system.
to know more about the products that could apply to your own rain barrel irrigation system. 
Visit Yi Zuo website 




Here are some steps for you to make the rain barrel:
Step.1
Drill a hole with a 1-inch drill bit about two inches from the bottom of the trash can. A large outdoor trash can will hold more water and has thicker walls to hold the pressure of the water inside. This will be the area for the spigot. Drill a hole with a 1-inch drill bit about 1 inch below the rim of the trash can in any position around the edge. This will house the overflow assembly. Drill about 12 holes 1 inch in diameter in various positions in the lid. Use a pocketknife or utility knife to remove plastic burrs from around and inside of each hole.
Step.2
Wrap Teflon tape at least three revolutions in a clockwise direction around the hose spigot threads. Insert the hose spigot into the bottom hole by hand making sure that the end the hose fits onto is pointing down towards the ground.

Step.3
Apply silicone caulk liberally onto one side of the 1-inch rubber washer, insert it from the inside of the trash can so that it fits over the spigot on the inside and press it flat against the trash can. Screw a 1-inch plastic locknut over the washer and hand tighten. Hold the spigot straight with one adjustable wrench and turn the locknut with the second adjustable wrench until the locknut is completely tight.

Step.4
Wrap Teflon tape at least three revolutions around the 3/4-inch overflow valve on the end opposite from where a garden hose connects. Always wrap Teflon tape in a clockwise direction so that it does not unwrap when screwing on fittings. Place the overflow valve into the top hole in the trash can.

Step.5
Coat the second 1-inch rubber washer liberally on one side with silicone caulk. Insert on the inside of the trash can over the overflow valve, attach a 1-inch locknut and screw tightly together in the junction as in the bottom junction.

Step.6
Apply silicone caulk liberally on both the inside and outside of the trash can on the spigot and overflow valve in all areas that touch the trash can.

Step.7
Place the trash can lid with the opening down onto a sheet of mesh screen and trace the outline with a marker. Add 1 inch to the measurements all around and cut out with scissors. Set the screen on top of the trash can and bend the extra 1-inch screen down onto the trash can. Place the metal band with snap closure around the screen and snap closed. This type of metal band is available at packaging stores to seal metal and plastic drum lids.

Timing is Everything - How to program your irrigation controller (#WF-8LCD timer w/flow meter)

You can literally save thousands of gallons of water in your landscape, and save your plants from drowning, with the proper setting of your irrigation controller. But you can't just set it and forget it. You need to change the watering schedules as plants become established, with the changing seasons, and when it rains. Here's two setting example to guide to make setting your irrigation controller easier.


Current Time: 2:16

Start Time: 2:30 (a specific valve will open to irrigate a station or zone)

Program (1) :

If given Water Flow Volume setting= 10 Lit/Gal, and  MIST CYCLE = 20% (The timer waters for 2 Lit/Gal, stop 10mins. (for regular STOP), then repeat)  Number of watering times = 100% ÷ 20% = 5 times
Min. cycle time: 4 stops x 10 min. = 40min. + watering period for total 20 Lit/Gal different water pressure spends shorter/longer period time


Program (2) :
If given Water Flow Volume setting= 20 Lit/Gal, and  MIST CYCLE=30% (The timer waters for 6 Lit/Gal, stops 10mins, then repeat.)  Number of watering times=20 Lit/Gal x 30%= 3 times x 6 Lit/Gal and 2 Lit/Gal surplus (means min. watering   times is 4)  Min. cycle time: 3 stops x 10min = 30mins (Total minutes of watering period + MIST CYCLE) 30mins ÷ 60mins = 0.5 hours + watering period for 20 Lit/Gal
        So, CYCLE TIME is programmed as 1 HR automatically.


Manual on/off buttons let you run through an entire program whenever you want a supplemental watering.

Outdoor Tips to Conserve Water

  1. Check your sprinkler system frequently and adjust sprinklers so only your lawn is watered and not the house, sidewalk, or street.
  2. Avoid planting turf in areas that are hard to water such as steep inclines and isolated strips along sidewalks and driveways.
  3. Install covers on pools and
  4.  spas and check for leaks around your pumps.
  5. Use the garbage disposal sparingly. Compost instead and save gallons every time.
  6. Check your water meter and bill to track your water usage.
  7. Minimize evaporation by watering during the early morning hours, when temperatures are cooler and winds are lighter.
