How AutoPot System Kits Work

These low cost watering systems offer many benefits, coming with all of the equipment and fittings needed to get set up - making irrigation simple and hassle-free!

AutoPot systems are a great way to supply your plants with the nutrients they require, without ever having to use pumps or other irrigation equipment, and therefore use no electricity.

Instead, AutoPots rely on gravity and the ingenious AQUAvalve system to distribute feed as and when they are needed. Because of this, AutoPot kits are simple to install and very user friendly. The fabric FlexiPots in these kits have a 20 Litre growing capacities.

AQUAvalves fill each tray up to the standard level of 20mm. Once this nutrient solution has been absorbed and the tray is empty, the AQUAvalve automatically refills it back up to the 20mm level using an ingenious float valve system.

Fresh nutrient solution is only ever delivered once root systems have absorbed the previous 20mm of feed.

Because plants in AutoPots are fed from underneath, they require a medium that is able to absorb liquid effectively, 'sucking' it up to the upper regions of the container via capillary action and creating an even spread of nutrient. Coco coir ticks these boxes, making it the best performing medium we've tested for use in AutoPot systems.

Fabric FlexiPots allow air to pass through the tiny holes of the side walls. Contact with the outside air prunes the end of each root, causing another root shoot to be sent from the centre of the root mass, creating a dense, radial root mass that eliminates issues with circling.

It's advisable to mix all types of media with perlite or clay pebbles, up to a ratio of around one part medium to one part perlite or pebbles. 60/40 is a great option that's proven to be a customer favourite.
