Ideal Gift - Solar Irrigation System - This is the easy way to regularly water your hanging baskets, containers etc using water from your water butt and being solar powered there are NO running costs. The 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. Use it to water while you are on holiday. 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.
