How the Autopot - 47 Litre Header Tank with Lid and Grommet Works:

The Autopot 47 Litre Header Tank stores the nutrient solution for your Autopot System. When one of your Autopot Smart Valves demands nutrient solution, the 47 Litre Header Tank provides it via a 6mm flexi-pipe connected into the bottom of the tank and fixed in place by a Top-hat Grommet. Autopot Systems are gravity-fed. To ensure that there is always enough weight of water in the Header Tank it should be raised a minimum of 150mm (6 inches) off the floor and the tank should be topped-up when no more two-thirds of the nutrient solution has been used.

Using the Autopot - 47 Litre Header Tank with Lid and Grommet

Place the Autopot 47 Litre Header Tank on a stand at least 150mm (6 inches) tall in close proximity to your Autopot garden. Fit the Grommet and flexi-pipe into the hole near the base and run the piping to your Autopot. It is usually advantageous to fit a flow control tap in the flexi-pipe fairly close to where it leaves the Header Tank. The flow from the Header Tank can then easily be switched off to allow trouble-free maintenance of your Autopot.

If more than one Autopot is being used than T-pieces can be fitted into the flexi-pipe to provide junctions to up to 4 Autopots. It is not recommended that more than 4 Autopots be connected to one 47 Litre Header Tank as more plants may use up the nutrient solution in the Header Tank too quickly. When the system has been fully set up, fill the Header Tank with water and make up you nutrient solution according to your feeding schedule. Switch the tap on and the system will begin to function.
