The AQUAvalve is supplied with every AutoPot Watering System. Once connected to the water supply, the AQUAvalve will control the flow of water to the plants by simple gravity pressure from a reservoir or tank of any size. No pumps, mains water pressure, electricity or timers are required.
Once connected to a reservoir the AQUAvalve will open and allow water to fill the tray to a pre-set level of 20mm. The AQUAvalve will not refill the tray until all the water has been used; this ensures that the plants are not constantly sat in water. Once all the water has been used by the plants the AQUAvalve will re-open and refill the tray.
The AQUAvalve is a simple and very effective watering device, so needs to be treated with care. Keep the AQUAvalve and the tray it sits in clean, free of obstructions, soil particles and it will feed and water your plants for many years.
This valve mimics normal outdoor weather conditions with rainfall approximately once a week followed by days of sunshine.
