Octo-Flow: Dial in Irrigation With the Turn of a Key

What is Octo-Flow?

Octo-Flow is the newest addition to the product lines offered from Left Coast Wholesale, and this 8-port adjustable irrigation manifold is a game-changer – especially for a large-scale grow. Water is vital for plants, and as a the size of a grow increases, growers can find themselves spending most of their time making sure all their plants are receiving the right amount, at the right time of day, while still paying attention to weeding, pest control, and fertilization; it can get overwhelming!  Irrigation has streamlined the first part of the process, by allowing growers to deliver water to their entire grow, at a set time, and in set flow rates. Irrigation has streamlined the work for growers and helped ensure healthy yields even during an unexpected dry season.

Irrigation in a field

Irrigation itself is unquestionably one of the most beneficial tools a grower has, and Octo-Flow makes it even more effective. An adjustable irrigation manifold, Octo-Flow allows users to dial in their irrigation setups easily; controlling the flow rate with an innovative hex key plunger system that can take it from 0-50 Gallons Per Hour with the turn of a key. If needed, Octo-Flow can also be converted into a full-open flow unit with a 667 Gallon Per Hour flow rate, just by using the with the included plug and o ring to make it happen. Easy!

 

Save Time and Money on Irrigation Setup and Maintenance

Octo-Flow easy set up

Irrigation manifolds aren’t a new thing, but Octo-Flow saves you time and hassle with its ease of use, set up, and necessity of purchasing additional parts to make it work. Octo-Flow eliminates the need for excessive equipment and can be attached directly to your water lines. Octo-Flow also simplifies the process of adjusting and fine-tuning water delivery rates without the need for excessive amounts of tiny parts that can be easily lost or removed unintentionally during the maintenance of your grow. If you’re looking to run fertilizer to your plants at the same time, the wide mouth 1/2” NPT inlet port attaches easily to 1⁄2” risers and makes it ideal for running fertilizer solutions of any type - and it won’t clog when running thick, organic fertilizer solutions.

In addition to the money being saved by being able to adjust flow rates with ease, Octo-Flow removes the hassle and headache associated with cleaning irrigation manifolds - the wide chamber is easily maintained with a bottle brush and some cleaning solution. That’s it! Best of all, the units are small and compact, unlike other adjustable manifolds, and can be tucked beneath a grow table or rolling bench to allow for easier navigation and maintenance within your canopy.
