It is named after a small tropical bird that nimbly flies from one flower to the next by flipping its wings extremely quickly, but it was created in Italy: we are speaking of Colibrì® System, the world's first "underground micro-sprinkler" system created by Claber to meet the irrigation needs of small and medium-sized gardens. With Colibrì® System you can easily make a tailor-made system to perfectly water the lawn and plants and save time, hard work and water: no wiring or digging needed.
When Claber irrigation experts started working on the design of the Colibrì® System, they had a specific objective in mind: providing all the benefits of underground irrigation also for those who do not have a large garden.
The "heart" of the system are our Colibrì pop-up sprinklers which, thanks to their special turbine, ensure accurate irrigation, even with low water pressure.
Available in 3 models with a coverage of 90°, 180° and 360°, the Colibrì sprinklers have been tested at Claber "Water Academy", our R&D centre, and are entirely made in Italy, using only top quality materials: they are, therefore, long-lasting and guarantee efficient irrigation.
Plus, you can adjust the length of the jet without using any tools – all you need to do is turn the ring nut with two fingers: Claber overlooks no detail.
Along with the pop-up sprinklers, the Colibrì® System includes everything you need to easily create a tailor-made system for small and medium-sized gardens (up to 450 sq.m) with no special tools required.
Main hose, couplings, accessories and also the drainage valve, that we recommend to use to empty the system in winter.
Designing your system is really easy too: just draw a plan of your garden in scale, use a compass to trace the areas you want to water and then join them with a line that represents the route of the hose, in order to determine the length of the hose and how many Colibrì® System pop-up micro-sprinklers you need.
Our Colibrì System is the ideal DIY irrigation solution, also in terms of ease of installation. Indeed, there is no need of deep digging, like for larger underground irrigation systems.
Just use the blade of a spade to trace a shallow slot, large enough to lay the hose, without removing any soil or spoiling the lawn. No special electricity or plumbing expertise required either!
In small gardens (up to 200 sq.m.) Colibrì® System can be used with a simple battery-operated water timer connected to a tap, together with ½" hose and couplings.
In medium-sized gardens (up to 450 sq.m.) you may create 4 independent lines with 20mm hose and couplings, thanks to another great idea from Claber: Hydro-4 valve box with integrated solenoid valves and battery-powered timer, which can also be installed above ground.
Basically, with Colibrì® you can really create an underground irrigation system...in a flash!
