Autopot System 4 Pot Hydrotray Kit
4 self watering pots, no pump required.
The Original AutoPot system designed by the inventor of the Smart-valve, Jim Fah.
The Smart-valve is the heart of AutoPot Systems. It differs from a conventional ball cock float valve because it allows total reduction of the fluid level before it refills.
When connected to a water supply (either from a gravity tank, pressure-reduced mains or a water pump) the Smart-valve opens to allow water to flow and fill the bottom of the growing container to a pre-determined depth (approx 30mm). The valve then closes shutting off the water supply from the tank. Once the water has been used and the tray is dry the valve re-opens and allows another supply of water to enter the hydrotray.
You can extend your system with additional hydrotrays. For larger setups it would be a good idea to upgrade the size of your water tank.
Mulch mats can be purchased separately as an option for this AutoPot. These are designed to fit over the top of the pot to reduce evaporation, prevent algae growth and reduce pests which like to lay on wet media.
