Pope’s iconic range of garden hoses just got better! The line-up has been refreshed with new hose end fittings, sparkling new packaging and new names to ensure Pope garden hoses are looking their best in time for the upcoming season. Pope has also changed their soft grip TPR fittings to a hybrid plastic. They still retain their comfy grip but are firmer to the touch making them more resistant to the sun’s harmful rays. Pope SuperFlex garden hose, now goes by the name Billabong.
With all these changes, you can be assured of one thing remaining the same and that’s the trusted Pope Perma Fit™ connection. This super strong crimp is secure and withstands high water pressure ensuring no leaks and no tightening of the fitting is required.

Are there any safety standards my irrigation system must meet?
The main safety concern is regarding the water supply. To avoid contamination of the mains water upstream, in most municipalities, a Dual Check Valve is required at the water connection.
Can I run an irrigation system off a regular garden tap?
A garden tap is an excellent place to connect your irrigation system. Ideally, install a connection point behind the tap (turn the water off first) so you can still use your tap to fill a bucket when you need to.
Do I need a filter on my irrigation system?
Even on a typical domestic system running on mains water a filter is still a good idea. In the event of a water main fault where rubbish does find it’s way down the line, a filter will protect the system from blockage and or failure. On systems operating off recycled water, like from a tank, a screen filter is mandatory. Debris like silt & dirt from recycled water is the most common cause of blockages of failures in irrigation systems.
Do I need a plumber to install or fix my system?
No, unless you’re tapping into your water supply, a plumber isn’t required. Most domestic irrigation systems can be installed by anyone half handy.

What’s the best type of sprinkler for my garden?
There’s no best type of sprinkler, just better sprinklers for different applications. Gear Drives are better for large areas, over 5m. Pop-Ups are ideal for 1.5-5m & Micro sprays are excellent for anything under that.
