Hozelock Water Timer Instructions

Monday, June 13th, 2011

To regularly water my hedge automatically I am going to use a Hozelock AC4 Water timer.

I have removed my Hozelock water timers for storage over winter to protect them from frost. I also remove the batteries from the units, to prevent battery leakage, and insert new batteries the following year. The only problem is I have forgotten how to program them, and I can never find the instructions , and Hozelock do not have the older models listed on their website anymore, just the newer timers.  Programming is not very user friendly or intuitive, So for myself and other readers (or Googler’s (hi!)), I’ve stored the manuals here, so they can be found. (next year!)

Hozelock Instruction Manuals

Hozelock AC1+ Model 2700 – Timer Instruction Manual (pdf)

Hozelock AC2 Model 2706 Timer Instruction Manual (pdf)

Hozelock AC4 Model 2707 Timer Instruction Manual (pdf)

Hozelock AC Pro Model 2701 Timer Instruction Manual (pdf)

What is odd, is that current Hozelock water timer model all have the same model number 2705, as the old model!

Next year, I’ll know where to find the manuals! In the Cloud!

Privet Hedge maintenance complete

Saturday, June 11th, 2011

Finally complete the border for the privet hedge today, the weather held off this afternoon to complete the rest of the border, Lindsey also help me, so it did not take much longer to complete the border for all the hedge and install the Hozelock water soaker. I just need to install the time I have in the fish house, so it can water the hedge twice a day, for an hour each time, and I need to add the fertilizer, and hopefully the hedge will grow and fill in the bare patches.

So if the weather is good tomorrow, cut the lawn and hedge!

Automated Water Irrigation System

Sunday, May 31st, 2009

I had hoped to plant-out my tomatoe plants today, but I spent much of the hot afternoon installing my Hozelock automatic water irrigation system, now that the frosts have gone (fingers crossed), I don’t leave them out all year, and store them in the shed, after October to protect from frosts.

The Hozelock AC4 and AC1+ have since been discontinued, (probably available new and used from eBay.), but newer models are available which do the same thing. I have two different models which automatically water the plants at the top and bottom (greenhouse), early morning at 7am and late evening 8pm for an hour. It takes me a while to setup, because I have to drape the water dripper pipe around the base of the blue berry and goji berry bushes. I use two drippers per 18″ pot for my blueberry bushes, I’ve noticed that blueberry bushes “drink” alot, and it’s very important to keep the plants moist in this hot weather to avoid crop loss.

The new style Hozelock, quick water irrigation system is much easier to install with potted plants, I also have three of them. I’ll post some pictures, when I set them up, in the greenhouse.

I’ve used a John Guest on/off ball valve (yes, John Guest fittings work on this pipe as well!), to turn off the water if I need to. Oh I think these tomatoe plants have had it, I planted them out early under glass cloches, only problem is over the last two days, with the heat, I think it’s killed them!
