Autopot System XL- 1 Pot- AquaValve
1Pot XL Autopot System
The Autopot 1Pot XL System is extremely versatile and can be used for a wide range of plant types and sizes. Seasonal flowering plants and perennial shrubs thrive and produce an abundance of blooms and foliage because of the unique action of the AQUAvalve, which is designed to allow the plant to go through a wet & dry cycle.
The Autopot 1 Pot XL System is easily extended so many pots can be linked to a single tank. Please see examples of typical layouts using 6mm pipe or 16mm pipe. The pots & trays can be easily moved at will, if the plants grow too large they can be spaced further apart with ease. Once set up and a tank is filled with water & liquid feed this extremely versatile system will completely take care of all your plants needs.
All you need to do is remember to fill up your tank from time to time. Gravity fed means less watering and is much more water efficient. The systems range from 1 xl pot to the autopot 100 pot system.

Autopot Kits: How Do They Work?
This low-cost watering system offers many advantages. It comes with all the necessary equipment to set it up. Irrigation is easy and straightforward! The 25-litre capacity Autopot XLs can be used for growing. The autopot system is a fantastic way to provide nutrients to your plants without the need for pumps and other irrigation devices. They also don't require electricity. Autopots instead rely on gravity, the clever Aquavalve system and gravity to deliver nutrients when and where they're needed. Autopot kits can be installed quickly and are very easy to use. Each tray is filled with Aquavalves up to the 20mm standard. Aquavalve fills each tray up to 20mm after the nutrient solution is absorbed. The Aquavalve then automatically refills the tray back up to that level with an innovative float valve system. Only fresh nutrient solutions are ever provided once the root system has absorbed all 20mm of previous feed. Autopot plants are fed directly from the bottom, so they need a medium capable of absorb liquid. This is done via capillary action, which draws the liquid up into the containers' upper areas and distributes nutrients evenly. Coco coir is the most effective medium that we tested to be used in Autopot systems.
How to use an Autopot system
You will have to assemble autopots differently depending on how many pots/plants you have. It is quite simple.The circular root control disk should be placed at the bottom and the metallic side up. The Aquavalve tray will be protected from roots growing into it. This can prevent blockages in the distribution of nutrients. Black marix disks are also helpful in preventing blockages. They should be placed at the bottom of Autopot containers. You can fill the container with the medium of your choice and then pot the plants in it. The best medium for autopots is one that has good absorbency and good capillary action. Coco coir works well for this. However, it is important to choose coco-specific nutrients when selecting nutrients. Although soil is good, heavier grades of soil work well when combined with at least 50% perlite. To prevent plants becoming waterlogged, it is a good idea to put a layer of stones at the bottom. Allow pots to dry completely outside the Autopot Trays. Before filling your reservoir with nutrients, allow 7-10 days for hand watering. Autopot systems are best suited for mineral-based nutrients. Blockages can be caused by organic feeds leaving behind residues. Aquavalve Maintenance. You can check that your Aquavalve functions properly by holding it up at eye level. Take a closer look at the yellow silicone which is attached to the top float. To ensure that the Aquavalve functions properly, it must be sealed between the float and the hole underneath. You can lift it up to make sure it sits properly above the hole. It should seal tight when you place it again. After each growth, the Aquavalve must be washed with warm soapy water using a clean cloth.
