Solar Irrigation System Regular watering of your hanging baskets, containers and garden is essential for great results. The Irrigatia Solar Irrigation System is the easy way to water using water from your water butt and being solar powered there are NO running costs. PLUS connect our Plant Feeder Kit and it will automatically feed your plants everytime it waters.  Currently unavailable

N.B. Our price INCLUDES the rechargable battery unlike many of our competitors.

 

Irrigatia Solar Irrigation System - This ingenious solar pump automatically regulates the amount of water it pumps i.e. it pumps the most water when the sun beats down, which is exactly when your plants need it. Install a Irrigatia Solar Irrigation System and it will never forget to water, so it is a great way of watering while you are on holiday PLUS, connect our Plant Feeder Kit and it will feed your plants while it waters.

 

Irrigatia Solar Irrigation System - The system consists of a solar panel, battery and pump, which distributes water from YOUR water butt to your plants through drippers just like a traditional irrigation system. The solar pump is fixed above the water butt in a sunny position. If your water butt is in the shade, simply position the pump in the sun and insert the feed hose into the water butt. The Water Wand then waters your plants automatically with the amount of water pumped dependent on 2 factors - the amount of sunshine and the position of the control knob which can be adjusted to water large or small plants. Each kit will supply enough water for 6 x 35cm or 12 x 25cm hanging baskets or 40 x 5 litre pots. Each kit comes complete with 12 drippers, 15m of tubing, fixing kit and full instructions.

 

Plant Feeder Kit - Connect this feeder kit into your Solar Irrigiation system and it will automatically feed your plants everytime it waters. The diluted plant food is added to the reservoir bag and then everytime the system waters, the liquid feed will be delivered automatically to your plants, so they receive all the water and nutrients they require to thrive. Seaweed fertiliser is ideal, but you can also use any water soluble feed such as Tomorite or Miraclegro. Because the fertiliser is being delivered constantly, you need only make it up at 1/4 strength, so the liquid feed lasts longer and constant feeding is much better for your plants. The large reservoir bag holds 10 litre of diluted feed. The Plant Feeder Kit consists of a Reservoir Bag, 2 x Non Return Valves, Cap, Flow Restrictor, Hook and 8.2m of tubing.

Each kit comes with 15m of tubing, but if your baskets are a bit further away then we can supply extra tubing in a 15m roll or by the metre.

Water Butt Accessories - Use a diverter to divert water from your downpipe directly into your water butt and use a linking kit to link multiple numbers of butts together. Use the Guttermate Diverter to filter the water before it enters the water butt as well.

Best-Seller - Guttermate Rainwater Diverter and Filter - This diverter diverts water into your water butt, while filtering at the same time & then shuts off the flow of water once the water butt is full. Supplied with a square to round adaptor, it can be fitted to both round and square downpipes - it can be fitted to 68mm, 76mm and 80mm diameter round downpipes and 65mm and 75mm square downpipes. Once the Guttermate is attached to the wall, it is then connected to your water butt via a 50cm pipe, which is included. The removable filter only takes 30 seconds to clean - it filters ALL the water coming down the downpipe, so protects your drains / soakaway as well.

As recommended in the Saturday Telegraph - Water slices - Hanging bags and baskets need alot of water and can easily dry out. Stop this happening by adding a water slice.

As recommended in the Saturday Telegraph - Water slices - These slices absorb water as you water and retain it longer than compost alone, so less watering for you! Plant roots will penetrate the slice and take out the water. Soak the disc overnight in water and it will dramatically increase in size! Cut the slice in quarters and place evenly in the bag as you fill it with compost. Plant the hanging bags up as normal and water. N.B. Can also be used to feed hanging baskets, tubs and containers.
