Irrigatia SOL-K12 Irrigation System
This unique solar powered irrigation system is ideal for use with greenhouses and hanging baskets. It can water 6 large hanging baskets or 12 x 20 litre pots.
Energy from the sun is collected by the solar panel and stored in a battery, meaning that this system operates itself with no need for constant fiddling and adjustment. The system can be set up in minutes: all you need to do is position it where it will get the most sunshine, insert the feeder tube to a water butt or similar non-pressurised water supply, place the drips and switch it on and it will start watering your plants! The solar panel continues to generate power even in very low light, so your plants will be watered all year round. When its sunny it will generate more power - your plants are watered more when they need it most.
There is no other system out there that can do all this - not even at double the price!

How often does the unit water my plants?
Once you switch the unit on, it will run every 3 hours as long as it is light. The amount of time the unit will run for depends on how much sun the panel has been able to soak up, so on sunnier days, the unit will water your plants more, and on days where there is less sunshine it will water them less. This is absolutely perfect for most peoples requirements. As a working example; If you switch the unit on at 12:00 it will remember this, and re-activate at 12:00 every day. It will run for a period of time, then re-activate at 15:00, and again at 18:00 (and, in theory, if it gets enough evening sun, again at 21:00)
