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 they need to help them thrive. Easy to install and set up, 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. No need for electricity or a tap – ideal for greenhouse watering, garden irrigation, vertical gardens & green walls, hanging baskets, raised beds, allotments & holiday watering. Just drop the inlet filter into the water butt, position the control unit somewhere sunny, switch on and leave.

Why Irrigatia is the most innovative way in gardening
More than half of the 351 people surveyed said they had not prepared for a hosepipe ban, mainly because they thought it was unlikely to happen. We can usually count on the British summer to provide us with a good amount of rain, but the heatwaves we have experienced so far this year in May and June, have showed that the gardens can become dry very quickly. It is a good idea to invest in a water butt (or more than one) to collect as much rainwater as possible – this can last throughout the summer and is an excellent way of saving and recycling water. Our survey also found that more than 70% of people list saving water as a key priority, with 30% saying they dislike the task of watering the garden. An Irrigatia watering kit uses up to 90 per cent less water than a hose, and due to its unique automatic, solar-powered technology, it doesn’t waste a drop of water. Attach it to a water butt, and it is a very environmentally-friendly way of watering your plants. If there is a hosepipe ban this summer, using an Irrigatia watering kit is not prohibited, so you won’t have to worry. Because it is automatic, you can leave it while you go away on holiday, as it doesn’t need to be monitored like other irrigation systems.
Times have changed – quite literally. Solar powered watering systems provide a unique and economic way to water such moisture demanding crops as tomato, sweet peppers, aubergines and lettuce. Because they are powered by day-light, they automatically adjust so that in warm, sunny weather they water for longer and, conversely, when its dull and cold, the watering time is shorter. The science is in the photo-voltaic panel that delivered the energy to the system and, just like the larger versions on house roofs, they harness the daylight and sun. The water is supplied either from an adjacent water butt or from a smaller reservoir that can be purchased with the solar kit. Now is the ideal time of year to start thinking about how you want to water your plants in the summer. It means one less worry knowing your irrigation kit is set up ready to go, and whether you are at home or on holiday, your plants are getting precisely the right amount of water that they need to flourish.
Want the very best from your garden plants? Regular irrigation and feeding is a great way to achieve this whether your plants are in pots, baskets, the veg plot, raised beds or the greenhouse. Irrigatia solar powered drip irrigation kits are the easiest way to water automatically from your water barrel. An Irrigatia kit will water every 3 hours. It will apply more water when it is sunny. It will not forget to water when you go away. Irrigatia kits are ideal for small gardens, and can be used for pots, raised beds, hanging baskets, vegetables and greenhouses. They use solar power to pump water and feed from your water butt, so need no wires or hose pipes. They are easy to install and set up and once in they will water automatically with minimal supervision. Our garden irrigation kits are designed to apply water accurately, directly where it is needed and slowly enough for it to soak in. They are not suitable for high output systems such as sprinklers. You don’t have a water butt – then simply use the Irrigatia reservoir connected to a tap!
