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 needed 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. This system can use up to 1800 litres per week..
No mains, wires, or hosepipes needed nor heavy watering cans to lug water around the garden.
