Phytotronics stands by greenhouse safety, including environmental concern as well as employee safety. Safety is the number one priority for any greenhouse operation, as a safe greenhouse environment leads to better productivity and system organization.
One of the leading hazards in greenhouse operations are hoses. Hoses can cause hundreds of damage to your greenhouse if not properly used. Consider that many of us have been guilty of just dropping a hose, letting it rest on the ground and walk away with no concern. We do this at home, and at work. What if that careless behavior results in an employee tripping on the house and hitting concrete? Your business can be at risk for a lawsuit, lost wages and major injury. Careless behavior like this is not only lazy, but dangerous.
We can also consider the scenario of your cuttings at risk for hose misuse. For example, you need to water a row of cuttings, but they are on the other side of the greenhouse. You then tug the hose, and accidentally knock over shelving that hold additional cuttings, resulting in breaking the pots and destroying the cutting. Losing your cuttings also takes money out of your companies bottom line, resulting in a loss that can cripple a growth season. Carelessly swing a hose around can directly impact you in a greenhouse environment, not to mention accidentally tipping over chemicals that can destroy hundreds of cuttings.
Working smart does not have to be complicated. This is why our innovative Hi-Hose Watering System immediately takes the danger out of hose use in a greenhouse operation. Our Hi-Hose Watering System excels in keeping hoses off the floor and out of the way. Not only does this system prevent unwanted hazards and accidents, but also creates a labor saving, cost cutting and efficient system that employees will love to use. Each kit comes with a hose, and available for 50, 75, and 100 foot greenhouses.
Kits come complete with the following sizes
- 50′ kit comes with 65′ hose
- 75′ kit comes with 90′ hose
- 100′ kit comes with two 65′ hoses
Our Blue Ribbon hoses measure at 5/8” and can withstand water temperatures of -40F to +250F. The cable system included creates a natural anti-kink hose measure compliments of our pre-installed hangers. Galvanized cables using a swivel pulley ensures the right fit for your greenhouse. Clear instructions are provided for each system, and make the installation a breeze.
