Weather responsive SMART Solar Automatic watering system
The kit includes the C12L SMART controller with integrated pump, inlet filter, anti-siphon, water level sensor (with 5m cable), 15m tube, 12 drippers, 12 stakes, 12 tees, 3 x AA rechargeable batteries (preinstalled - please remove & charge the batteries externally for 20 – 30 minutes before 1st use as they may be flat).
FEATURES of the SOL-C12L
The water level sensor is placed in the water barrel and will detect when the water is running out and emits an audible warning during daylight hours. The sensor comes with a 5m cable, if you need to place the controller further away the sensor can be disconnected.
Night mode - the system now detects when it is dark and switches the controller off to prevent watering at night.
MAXIMUM WATERING CAPACITY
To assist in selecting the most appropriate Irrigatia controller, we have devised a simple method to demonstrate each product’s capacity. We call them ‘Irrigation Units’, or ‘IU’ for short.
The SOL-C12L is suitable to irrigate one of the stated maximum planting quantities, or a combination thereof.
12 x 20 litre pots | 12 x tomato plants | 24 x pepper plants | 36 x strawberry plants | 12m row vegetable or flower beds
The SOL-C12L 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.
