A new click irrigation system by Victorian inventor Norm Ladson will be launched at the annual Water Week event being held across Australia from 19th October to 25th October.

A retired plumber, Norm has been nominated in the innovation and invention award categories for the prestigious Bendigo Inventor Awards to be announced on 13th November.

Norm’s irrigation solutions are in high demand after national home hardware giant Bunnings agreed to stock his irrigation products.

The new click irrigation solution improves upon the old and cumbersome poly pipe and joiner system, with Norm’s invention incorporating a 4-hose connector featuring female and male connectors that can click in with a 13mm, 6mm or 4mm option.

Eliminating the clumsiness of the old system, the new irrigation system provides users with the flexibility to turn on or turn off each line or alternatively run extra lines if required. The system allows users to run a 13mm or 4mm click dripper hose or a 4mm click sprayer line, complete with the convenience of the off/on switches.

Norm devised the new irrigation system after observing a clear gap in the irrigation market. The new click irrigation system has a completely unique design and functionality never before seen by users.

After retirement, Norm continued with his passion for innovative design concepts in the irrigation area. Developing each idea from conception to fruition, Norm also takes care of sales, product design, artwork, photography, logistics, packing, marketing and accounts.

Norm continues to develop products and invent new ways to revolutionise the irrigation industry in Australia.
