Revolutionary System Guarantees Leak-Free Watering

Patented New Technology Saves Homeowners and Gardeners Time and Money

PEORIA, IL -- (Marketwired) -- 05/12/14 -- Addressing the No.1 frustration of gardeners and homeowners everywhere, sister brands Gilmour and Nelson's new LeakFree system guarantees watertight connections for completely leak-free watering.

Available just in time for spring watering and cleaning projects, the LeakFree watering system is designed to save users both time and money, while keeping them dry in the process.

"The right tools can make all the difference in creating a yard that leaves a lasting impression," says Alan Luxmore, host of A&E's hit television show Fix This Yard. "The LeakFree watering system completely eliminates leaking connections, thus, making watering more efficient and enjoyable. And the end result? Happy homeowners reveling in the success of their landscaping project."

Innovative technology
Years in the making, LeakFree distinguishes itself from other leak-resistant products through its patented triple-seal technology that prevents leaks at all connection points: faucet to hose to watering tool. In addition, a built-in automatic shutoff valve stops the flow of water to keep users dry while changing watering tools, such as nozzle to sprinkler.

This first-to-market system offers another practical benefit: tool-less assembly. In just a few seconds, users can simply push, turn and lock the LeakFree components in place to ensure a watertight seal.

The double-action locking mechanism is designed to withstand years of wear and tear. Durable metal casing around internal seals limits their exposure to the elements, thus, extending the life of the product, which is protected by a 7-year limited guarantee.

"The LeakFree watering system brings true innovation to the market and into consumers' homes," says Shandrus Hohne de Carvalho, global marketing director at Robert Bosch Tool Corporation. "The entire system was designed with the homeowner and gardener in mind in order to simplify what traditionally has been a frustrating task."

A complete system
Both the LeakFree by Gilmour and LeakFree by Nelson product lines feature a starter kit that includes all the necessary fundamentals for a leak-free watering experience from start to finish: a LeakFree adjustable spray nozzle, a 50-foot LeakFree heavy-duty hose and LeakFree faucet-to-hose connector.

The LeakFree family also offers these innovative products:

  • 75-foot and 100-foot heavy duty hoses
  • multi-pattern watering nozzle
  • oscillating sprinkler
  • impulse sprinkler
  • power jet wand

"These watering tools are uniquely designed to work hand-in-hand and will only connect to other LeakFree products," says Hohne de Carvalho. "LeakFree is more than a hose or a nozzle. This is a complete system designed to bring a new level of satisfaction to a watering/cleaning experience, thus, delighting consumers as a result."

The LeakFree system will be available beginning spring 2014 at home centers and garden supply stores nationwide. The LeakFree starter kit retails for a suggested price of $59.99.
