We believe this need-driven invention deserves a place in Lawn & Garden centers across the nation, and we look forward to working with our retail partners to get there.

The AquaHub is like a customizable power strip + surge protector for watering outdoors—connect it to a standard garden hose to covert one simple water outlet into six irrigation outlets that can each be set differently. This means:

Effective pinpoint watering of up to six separate areas Precise water flow management and conservation via twist-control valves on each outlet Easy water sourcing from a single faucet hose-line A newspaper pressman who works nights, inventor Tomlin grew tired of spending his precious few daylight hours moving the sprinkler from one part of his yard to another to water different plants. Determined to make better use of his time, he fashioned hose, piping and valves to create an effective, new solution.

Tomlin fine-tuned his design and then patented the AquaHub in 2004.

He partnered with AbsolutelyNew to handle the business of making and selling the invention. "I didn't want to do it on my own," he said. "It's a big chore. And I wouldn't know where to start."

"The AquaHub saves plants and water, and people's time," said Richard Donat, AbsolutelyNew's CEO. "We believe this need-driven invention deserves a place in Lawn & Garden centers across the nation, and we look forward to working with our retail partners to get there."

AbsolutelyNew will start shipping the AquaHub by Spring 2009.
