Simply practical: with the GARDENA Water Connector, water can be tapped from the ground like electricity from the mains. The Water Connector is installed underground and supplied with water via the GARDENA Connecting Pipe. As soon as you have connected a garden hose to the water connection with automatic stop valve, you can begin watering. If the hose is removed, the water automatically stops. When the Water Connector is not being used, a cover protects against impurities. This pop-up spherical cover disappears into the Water Connector when opened and is thereby no obstacle for lawnmowing. A removable filter prevents the entry of impurities in the socket when the cover is open. The GARDENA Water Connector has a ¾" male thread.
