Ericksen, Orbit CEO. “We listened and have responded to our customers" needs with an affordable, easy to use kit that turns your hose faucet into an automatic sprinkler system in just minutes. And, the best part is – no digging. This is a great alternative to a complicated underground sprinkler system.”
