looking for cheap fertilizer injector

12 years ago

I am looking for a cheap fertilizer injector to attach between two hoses.

Preferably I'd like something like the Miracle Grow sprayer where the water mixes with the solid fertilizer, but instead of a sprayer end I'd like a second hose attachment.

I have (still in box) an EZ-Flow injector, but I don't want to bother with it. A second one is too expensive (considering the Miracle Grow sprayer is $11 or less).

Choice B would be something like this

http://www.amazon.com/Dramm-22625-Syphonject-Siphon-External/dp/B002KCY2WS/ref=pd_sim_sbs_lg_2

Which is a Dramm 22625 syphonjet and would require liquid/premixed fertilizer and a 5 gallon or bigger bucket. Not the worst solution but not the best.

I'll be fertilizing strawberries in a tower filled with 1-1-1 mix (ie granite, Turface and pine bark fines) so fertilizing is required.

Anyone have experience with the siphon type injectors? I'd like to spend very little.

My hose has terrific pressure, so hopefully that won't be a problem.

Thanks for your thoughts on the subject.

Andrew
