Here are some answers to the most commonly asked gardening questions we receive.
About Our Products
How do I get the best performance from my pop-up sprinklers?
Make sure to clean nozzles on your pop-up sprinklers regularly; blocked nozzles not only water inefficiently but also waste water. Nozzles on your sprinklers can also be replaced, if required.LEARN MORE
What is the best way to retract my Neta retractable hose reel?
Turn off your tap, pull the hose to retract, and slowly walk the hose back into the reel. If a spray gun is connected to the hose then pull the trigger to release remaining water.LEARN MORE
What is the difference between a 50mm and a 100mm pop-up sprinkler?
The difference is the height of the sprinkler; 50mm pop-up sprinklers are ideal for small lawn and garden areas whereas 100mm models are taller to clear longer grass.LEARN MORE

What should I do before using my new garden hose?
Since your hose has been coiled in its packaging for some time, it will need to be straightened. Unwind your hose, fill it with water and lay it out in the sun – this will remove any kinks that have formed from being coiled.LEARN MORE
