Have you ever dropped the hose in your pond to just top it off for a few minutes and end up getting distracted and forgetting you left the hose on? Well I have had the unfortunate experience of seeing all too many customers have such an experience and the expression on their faces said it all, many losing everything.
So determined to find a solution during a recent trade show I found several vendors showcasing products which I hoped would put an end to this nightmare. Initially I was very impressed at what appeared to be several new hose timer products some even with sophisticated electronic programming options. But I had three criteria which had to be met.
- It needed to be simple.
- It needed to be a good value.
- If it failed it would have to fail in the closed position.
Well requirement number 3 ended up being almost comical as many salesmen/representatives just had no idea of the mechanism being employed in their device and couldn’t give an answer. That is until I came across this hose timer by Orbit. The representative knew the product knew the mechanism employed within it and answered requirement number 3 with a resounding “closed”. Mission accomplished!
Now please, everyone needs to buy one of these. I would rather you not experience that sinking feeling you get in the pit of your stomach when you realize you left the hose on. This one is a no brainer.
