Are you too lazy that you don’t want to walk outside to turn on the sprinklers? Or, if you’re like me, do you keep forgetting about watering the damn lawn? Well, here’s a gadget that’ll make controlling your sprinklers a little easier. Called the Remote Rain Water Control, the device comes with a wireless key fob transmitter and a receiver. Simply attach the receiver to your water source and flick the switch on the transmitter to send water to your sprinklers. To turn it off, just change the transmitter’s switch to “OFF” — no more going back and forth to the the faucet and no more getting off your ass.

The Remote Rain Water Control is powered by four AA batteries and has a range of 100 feet. It costs $69.99 at Improvements Catalog. For that price, I’d rather get a sprinkler timer. That way, I won’t have to worry about losing the transmitter or remembering to press the ON/OFF button. I’m forgetful, what can I say?

    A good watering can is made of brass because its last longer compared to plastic watering can. It is a little bit heavier but in a long run, it’s worth it. To make a watering can much better, you can place a water breaker at the nozzle.

    well, this would be a nice gadget for scaring pesky critters off your lawn, the sprinkler timer is a better idea for everyday use. For those who want to micro-manage their sprinklers they now can using their smart-phone and an Internet sprinkler controller. Search: “Lawncheck” for an example of a sprinkler controller that is setup and controlled through the Internet. It offers lots of side benefits one of which is the ability to use a smart phone to easily activate cycles (so you won’t have to remember to turn the water off once you turn it on).
