AutoPot™ Pot Systems are extremely versatile and can be used to grow wide range of plants.
It works on a very smart patented device AQUAvalve, which is designed to allow the plant to go through a wet and dry cycle. This is a simple and very effective watering device. The main effort is to keep the AQUAvalve and the tray where it sits clean of foul and soil particles, then it can operate seamlessly for years. Once connected to the water supply it will control the flow of water to the plants via gravity - pressure action from a tank or water barrel. No need for electricity, pumps, water pressure or timers.
If connected to the tank the AQUAvalve will open and allow water to fill the tray, to a pre-set the level of 20 mm, after this level reached it will shut off and prevent any further water entering the tray until all the water has been consumed by the plants, it will re-open to let the water fill the level again.The System is easily extendable and many pots can be linked to a single tank. Please take a look at the examples of typical layouts using 9 mm pipe or 16mm pipe. The pots & trays are easily moveable, for example if the plants grow larger and they should be spaced further apart.
