The new Aquabox Spyder offers a revolutionary self watering solution for grow your own enthusiasts. No mains water supply, pumps or timers are required. Simply connect to an existing water butt to automatically water a 1.2 m2 area for a guaranteed minimum of 14 days (assuming connection to a water supply of at least 100 litres).
The Aquabox spyder is positioned directly into the ground making it ideal for watering vegetable patches or raised beds. A series of capillary wicks fan out across the chosen area with the Aquavalve at it core, the Aquabox spyder draws on the water supply as required by the plants, ensuring a fantastically efficient use of water. The plants instinctively head to the water source attaching themselves to the capillary wicks.
The wicks should be changed every growing season. The Aqua spyder is supplied with 2 meters of micro irrigation tube and reducing connector with integral filter allowing simple connection to a water butt tap via a section of standard hosepipe (not supplied). An integral spirit level in the lid of the Aquabox spyder ensures correct initial user installation.
