Smart Valve

SKU: PP90S.
Category: .

This Smart Valve unit is designed to control the water level in an Autopot module (or your own tray) to give your plants the 'wet-dry' cycle. Unlike a conventional float valve, the Smart-valve allows total reduction of the fluid level before it refills. When connected to a water supply (which can be from either pressure reduced mains, pressure pump like the AutoPot Smart Pump Set, or gravity tank) the valve opens to allow water to enter the bottom of the growing container to a set depth (approx 35mm). The valve then closes and will not permit further water to enter the container until all the original supply has been used up by the pot. This absorption is achieved by capillary action that naturally occurs in the growing medium. Once the water has been absorbed, the valve re-opens and another supply of water enters the growing container: wet-dry cycles dictated by the pot's own rate of consumption.
