The GARDENA Connecting Point connects the tap with the underground GARDENA Sprinklersystem or GARDENA Pipeline. A GARDENA "Profi" Maxi-Flow System Threaded Tap Connector (Art. No. 2713-20) is included. If an Irrigation Valve or a Water Connector is connected, the hose connection stands under continuous pressure; in this case, the hose connection is to be pressure-stabilised with the Adapter Piece (Art. No. 1513-20). The pop-up spherical cover disappears when opened inside of the Connecting Point and thereby presents no obstacle for lawn mowing. The wide rim prevents grass from growing inside the cover. A removable filter prevents contamination of the socket when the cover is open. The GARDENA Connecting Point has a ¾" male thread.
