This was my second foray into automatic irrigation, the first being a gravity based drip system which was very cheap especially compared to this but you get what you pay for and it was a waste of time. Fiddled with PTF on droppers and all sorts (as advised in most reviews for such systems) and still terrible (plants dried out) so I abandoned this and ordered the Hozelock system.
Despite what it says on the box this system cannot be set up in five minutes, it took me about 45 minutes including testing. With the flow restrictor I get 80ml of water out of each dripper every minute. The ability to add to this system is fantastic - other pods etc. Working out the placement of the pods is crucial, place them in your garden first and then work back towards the tap. You get 20m of piping so extending to the pods is easier than extending each of the drippers - the 5 dripper pipes from each pod are only 1m long so working out where they go is important. They can also be wall mounted and have a bracket on the back, there's a template in the box to make sure you drill holes the right distance apart on your wall as well. As it happens I have one pod in the polythene greenhouse and one outside it.
Unfortunately I was missing the dripper caps, if you only need 3 drippers on a pod (which contains 5) then you can put caps on the 2 that aren't required. This gave me cause to engage the Hozelock service team and they posted me out the missing caps which within 5 working days. It's very frustrating when something isn't right with an order, a swift and easy resolution is the best way to appease the situation and I'm pleased to say I experienced just that.Read more ›
My situation is this: I have a greenhouse. I have a water butt outside the greenhouse and wanted to drive this system direct from the water butt, not from the mains pressure garden tap. Some of the websites vaguely refer to doing this and some talk about the Hozelock water butt pump, but none are definitive (seemingly) so here goes:
1)Firstly, the biggest problem you have with a water butt is there is a lack of pressure. A tap of a standard water butt will be only a few inches higher off the ground than the plant pots you want to feed. That's hopeless as there is not enough pressure. I've got around this temporarily by putting a water butt on a small scaffold tower so it is about 5ft off the ground. I've done this because a)I am going on holiday shortly, and b)my outside tap is out of action, so I have no other way of feeding the system. NOTE: putting a water butt 5ft off the ground is not ideal and the water is massively heavy so bear that in mind. Anyway - it's up there, and I have about 4ft of 'head' with which to drive the system. (I'm not planning on keep the water butt up there, but it will serve my short term holiday purpose).Read more ›
It's easy to set up, easy to program and just a five-minute blast every day is enough to keep various herbs, lilies, roses and shrubs happy.
The green pods are very discreet -- probably smaller than you'd imagine -- and the connecting hoses are narrow and robust; easy to tuck out of the way.
It's not just for holidays -- it eliminates the need for daily watering in the summer (!) months and, aside from being less hassle, uses far less water. Just sit back, relax, and watch your garden grow...
I wasn't sure quite how it would work out from the advert. But it really is easy to understand and worked first time out of box - actually a WHOLE HEAP of packaging. I now have two drinking straw sized pipes from my garden tap to two pot sized water distributors. Each distibution point then has several further pipes that go to each pot plant. I set it up to water for 3 minutes each 12 hours starting at 9am in morning. You just program the connector at the tap end. Very easy.
Small loss of a star due to bizarrely tricky battery compartment setup (needs one of those tiny screwdrivers and some fiddling) Also the distributors could have some distribution pipe of varying lengths or perhaps some extension pipe for those places that are inevitably a little out of reach.
I will be leaving it switched on permanently - its that good! My tomatoes really are growing like triffids - I shall need to set up that electric fence before they uproot themselves like in the film....
