Rachio 3 Smart Irrigation Controllervia the home depot

Rachio 3 Smart Irrigation Controller

If you have an irrigation system, a smart controller is one the best investments you can make. And the Rachio 3 is the best there is.

Installation is as easy as it gets. Match up the wires, fasten it to the wall and connect it to your home’s WiFi. From there you can control every aspect of your sprinkler system.

If granular control is intimidating, let Rachio take over. Input data about your yard, grass types and a few other things and the controller creates a custom watering schedule based on your yard’s specific needs.

No need for a rain sensor. Rachio uses hyperlocal weather data to skip watering on days it’s forecast to rain. It even knows when your soil has enough moisture (saturation skip). Control every aspect of the controller via an intuitive mobile app or a web browser. It doesn’t get any better than telling Alexa or your Google Assistant to “water the backyard.”

Freeman Tire Inflatorvia the home depot

Freeman Tire Inflator with LCD Pressure Gauge

Everyone needs a good tire inflator. Everyone with an air compressor, that is. Connect this Freeman tire inflator to your compressor with a quick coupler and ensure your tires are properly inflated. The digital LCD readout ensures a perfect pounds per square inch (psi) reading every time.

When the air temperature drops, so does the air pressure in your tires. Air contracts when it cools and your car tires lose around one to two pounds per square inch for every 10 degrees lost. Under-inflated tires can be a safety hazard, too. Keep yourself and your family safe with properly inflated tires this winter.
