MAXIMUM WATERING CAPACITY
To assist in selecting the most appropriate Irrigatia controller, we have devised a simple method to demonstrate eachproduct’s capacity. We call them‘Irrigation Units’, or ‘IU’ for short.
The SOL-C12 is suitable to irrigate one of the stated maximum planting quantities, or a combination thereof.
12 x 20l pots | 12 x tomato plants | 24 x pepper plants | 36 x strawberry plants | 12m row vegetable or flower beds
The SOL-C12 connects to the following Irrigatia Kits:
Drippers: Use for pots, baskets and individual plants.
Seephose: Ideal for short runs in a mixed dripper / seephose environment, germinating seedlings, watering plant troughs and small beds.

Irrigatia weather responsive SMART irrigation controllers uniquely use solar power to detect the weather and alter watering according to the conditions and the season – providing plants with the precise irrigation – to help them thrive.
They are easy to install and set up, and once in, they will water automatically with minimal supervision – ideal for small to medium gardens or allotments – and can be used for pots, raised beds, hanging baskets, vegetables and greenhouses.
Unlike conventional timer systems, by watering little and often, the soil stays moist and water does not run off, saving you water. A 200 litre water barrel typically lasts 3 weeks.
No mains, wires, or hosepipes needed nor heavy watering cans to lug water around the garden.
