Automatic irrigation system
This fully automatic irrigation system is simple and effective and can be used in two ways. As eb & flow- or drip irrigation system.
The system consists of an aluminum grow table and a drip tray on which the plants stand.
Under the table there is a water tank with two pumps. A circulation pump and a supply pump.
The circulation pump ensures that the nutrient solution does not solidify and is less susceptible to bacterial and algae growth. The supply pump pumps the water to your plants.
When used as drip irrigation system the supply pump is connected to a system of drippers. The pump is turned on and off with a pre programmed timer so that water is pumped to each individual plant on the drip tray. Water that leaks from underneath the pots flows back into the water tank.
Eb & flow irrigation
When used as an eb & flow system the supply pump is connected to the bottom of the grow tray on which the pots are placed .
The pump is turned on and off with a pre programmed timer and a layer of water is pumped into the grow tray. The pots absorb the water through the holes in the bottom of the pots. When the pump is switched off again, the water flows by means of gravity back to the water tank under the table.
The drainage channels in the drip tray ensure that it dries nicely after every watering and that the plants do not stand with their feet in a pool of water.
This system also works very well with textile pots such the Rootpouch found in our webshop.
Simple in maintenance and usage
The table with the drip tray is placed inside the cabinet. The water tank can be easily filled via the bottom sliding doors and is connected with a quick connector to the rest of the system. It can be disconnected and taken out of the cabinet for cleaning between two harvests.
Suited for every medium
This automatic irrigation system can be used with every medium. Pots with soil, coco, rockwool slabs, etc.
Keep in mind the height of the pots. The table is already 38cm high.
