AutoPot™ AQUAboxes are designed for a automatic-watering and feeding solution for all kind of plants that are grown directly in the soil, ideal equipment for saving time of every gardener.
No electricity, pumps or timers are required. It is simply connected to an existing water barrel/tank to water automatically with the help of the capillary wicks in combination with AQUAvalve. As positioned directly in the ground the AQUAbox is perfect for watering conventional beds as well as raised beds. In combination with AQUAvalve, the AQUAbox will provide as much water required by the plants, ensuring an incredibly efficient use of water. The roots of the plants will grow towards the water source, attaching themselves to the capillary wicks below the soil level.
It is advised to make sure that the capillary strips/wicks are touching the bottom of the AQUAbox either side of the AQUAvalve once they have been threaded through. A spirit level in the lid of the AQUAbox ensures that it is level once positioned in the ground. The capillary wicks should be changed every growing season. Available with two different types of capillaries - Straight or Spyder.
Extension Kits for both Straight and Spyder are available to allow connection of multiple units to a single water barrel. The Extension Kits are supplied with 2 m of 6 mm pipe and a reducing connector with integral filter, allowing simple connection to a water barrel tap via a section of standard garden hosepipe (not included).
