Marquette, MI (PRWEB) March 06, 2015
A new company has been launched to sell affordable, self-draining do-it-yourself lawn/garden irrigation kits for homeowners. These kits, manufactured and sold by Auto Rain Lawn Gear offer homeowners a money saving option and a profit maker for retailers.
After many years of installing residential and commercial irrigation systems, U.P. Irrigation owner John Coyne decided there should be a do-it-yourself irrigation system for the homeowner, one they could install at a fraction of the cost of what a contractor would charge. The system he invented, which features quality Rainbird components, will save homeowners 70% over what a licensed contractor would charge.
A second feature he was looking for is that it be self-draining. This feature adds to the convenience of the product for those living anywhere where the temperatures dip below freezing during the winter months. This unique feature saves the homeowner the time and possible expense of having to blow water out of the lines at the end of the season.
The irrigation kits, which come in different sizes to match the size of the lawn, are now being sold in many Lowe's and Home Depot stores and can also be purchased online. The new DIY irrigation kits are an affordable option for the homeowner over having to hire an irrigation contractor.
For retailers the kits provide an additional stream of revenue, not just in the sale of the irrigation kits, but also in the sale of additional items needed for installation: gloves, shovels, hose, knee pads, and optional timers.
