About EZ-FLO Fertilizing Systems
EZ FLO Fertilizing Systems is the world leader in automatic fertilizer dispensing systems for residential and small commercial properties. With its patented fluid flow technologies, EZ-FLOÂs products can precisely deliver non-hazardous water soluble or liquid fertilizers through a hose, sprinkler or drip system using micro-dosing, a technique that provides plants the needed nutrients, every time you water. Having no moving parts, EZ-FLO systems are dependable and reliable so property owners can install them with confidence. The combination of fertilizing while irrigating (called fertigation) provides plants with essential nutrients through both the plantÂs leaves, as well as roots. Since most of the fertilizer gets directly into the plants, fertilizer run-off is virtually eliminated. Reducing water usage is also an increasingly important goal of many worldwide users. Fertigation has been proven to reduce water usage 20-80%. The combination of reduced water usage and less fertilizer runoff lets EZ-FLO customers Fertilize ResponsiblyÂ.
