About us

In 2014, our founder John was frustrated with the antiquated water timers he was using.  He never knew if they were set right.  He was never sure if they had actually watered.  And he had no idea how much water they were using. 

The Internet of Things had been in the news lately.  He realized that a water valve, combined with a flow meter, would be a remarkably useful IOT device.  So, he applied for a patent and got to work.  It helped that he was an ex-Apple engineer.

Five years later, Zilker is here.  It’s an entirely new and easy way to water.  We hope you enjoy it.

A former Apple designer built a Nest for your water spigot.
