EZ FLO Fertilizer Injector: Select the Right Fertilizer Injector for Your Garden

Dec 6th 2023

EZ-FLO hose bib injector is the fastest and most convenient way to have a beautiful and healthy garden. EZ-FLO fertilizer injectors can be used with dry fertilizer, liquid fertilizers, and water-soluble products to feed through a hose or drip system after the valve. Hose Bib units are simple to use and quick to set up. Any homeowner, grower, or landscaper can use them by simply connecting them to a water faucet and adding fertilizer. The High-Pressure Units can be attached to the main water line before or after the valve with an installation coupler. These Units are a great option if you are trying to feed various zones with one fertilizer injector.

Gardeners have loved this drip irrigation fertilizer tank for its ability to provide nutrients to plants without regularly filling the tank. They are large enough that they don't need constant refilling. With hose bib units, you can fertigate like a pro from your garden hose or drip system. Also, they're simple to attach and detach from the faucet and small enough to move around when you must fertigate other areas. An EZ-FLO Faucet Switching Kit will make it easy to connect your EZ-FLO fertilizer to another faucet.

Let's discover in detail how to use a fertilizer injector unit with a drip irrigation system, the most recommended models of EZ FLO Injectors, and many more.

How to Use EZ Flo Fertilizer Injector with Drip Irrigation System

First, choose water-soluble or liquid fertilizers. Hose-threaded units have a hose bib adapter that connects directly to a water faucet. Securely attach the EZ FLO fertilizer injector to the hose bib. In contrast to traditional fertilization techniques, you can automatically fertilize plants using a drip irrigation system, saving you a lot of time.

Follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and mix the correct ratio with water. Fill the tank with mixed fertilizer. Products that are fully concentrated don't require mixing.

Next, adjust the feed rate according to plants' needs and fertilizer application rates. Afterward, connect the drip system tubing to the outlet of the EZ FLO injector and start the water supply at the hose bib. The water flow will activate the injector, move the fertilizer into the irrigation system, and distribute it through drip tubing to plants. Moreover, all fertigation systems that use fertilizer injectors must have a backflow preventer to stop fertilizer from coming back into your home water supply.

Fertigation using EZ-FLO means combining fertilizers with water. It offers your plants a healthy, well-balanced nutrition boost that will be injected directly into the soil. All the nutrients are evenly dispersed in water, and you get green, healthy plants.
