The HydroKnot, the efficient, low-cost device that saves water (and money!) when sprinkler heads or risers break. It’s the ideal solution to a common problem faced by anyone who maintains an irrigation system – homeowners, commercial landscape crews and municipalities. Imagine – no more geysers, no more wasted water, no more flooding and/or soil erosion.
HydroKnot is the automatic shut-off valve that kicks into action as soon as a water flow spike is detected. It’s an easy-to-install, permanent addition to your system that will likely pay for itself after just one stopped geyser.
Among the numerous advantages you’ll enjoy are:
- HydroKnot allows good sprinklers to water properly
- Zone water pressure is preserved
- The HydroKnot valve resets itself when each watering cycle ends
- No spare parts needed ever; install it and forget it
- Totally maintenance-free, and totally conservation-smart
Depending on the size and usage patterns of your property, damaged or broken sprinkler heads may go unnoticed or undiscovered for weeks. In the meantime, hundreds or even thousands of gallons of water may be wasted. Think of HydroKnot as your silent “security alarm” that both protects your environment and prevents water bills that never should have happened.
