Fertigator...

All-

I installed my fertigator system this weekend. It was easy to install/wire/program. However, the thing leaks![:(!] This, after spending $250 for the unit. And it doesn't leak where I glued it into my system, it leaks where THEY assembled the injectors and screwed them into the PVC.

This thing looks like someone put it together in 5 minutes. The holes in the PVC were not sealed. So now I have water spraying out of the injectors.

I suppose that the fix is just sealing the injectors myself, but for $250, this thing should work perfectly.

Very disappointing.[:(]

I was really excited for this unit, but now feel $250 lighter.

Update-
To give Fertigator a fair shake, they did help me out with some advice. They also said they were aware of the problem and are in the process of fixing it. They responded to my complaint promptly, which makes me feel better.[:)]

I've installed many of these, and have never heard of expirienced that.

Vincent I've never had a serivce call for Fertigator, only to refill the fertilizer! I've installed over 50 of them this year!

I have installed over 100 of them with no problems at all. Been installing them the past couple of years.

Strong injectors operate differently than a fertigator system. Strong is a blast fertigation system and does not provide near the benfits. Fertigator injects small amounts over time.
