AutoPot™ AQUAvalve is a simple and very effective watering device but a little extra care is required.
The main effort is to keep the AQUAvalve and the tray where it sits clean of foul and soil particles. So 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.
As the plants grow larger and the water consumption arises, it will just open and close more often and will perform in accordance of the plants needs. This lets the plants go through the needed wet & dry cycle. It is advised to pre-set the device before use. When connecting up using 6 mm or 16 mm pipe, always ensure that the end of the pipe is dipped in the hot water, it will make the connecting much easier.
It is an spare-part, as usually the AQUAvalve is included to all of the AutoPot systems. Warranty: 12 months.
