Money Saving

No energy is needed - there are no pumps or timers. Instead, these systems use gravity, which is free! 

Quiet

There's no pump to make noise - plants are fed passively. The of the parts make any noise

Easy To Use

The AQUAvalve detects when plants have used their feed. At this point, the pots refill. The only thing for you to do is top up your tank!

Flexible

Pots are modular. Even part way through a crop, you can move pots about and expand your systems.

Water Efficient

Zero water is wasted! Plants use what they're fed, and they're only fed when it's needed. This makes AutoPot Systems one of the most economical systems out there.

Energy-Free

Set these systems up anywhere! You don't need a power supply. It also removes the worry of power cuts! 

Yield-Boosting

Plants have unrestricted access to nutrients and water. They use what they need and are fed when they need it. Overall, you can expect a BIG yield.

How It Works

Plant pots sit on bottom trays.

Due to gravity, feed flows from your tank, towards your these bottom tray. 

Each tray contains an AQUAvalve. When trays are empty, the AQUAvalve allows them to fill with 20cm of nutrient solution, for your plants to use. Then,. 30 - 60mins after plants have emptied these trays, your AQUAvalve will allow pots to refill. 

Your plants control their own feed - your AQUAvalve lets the pot fill, then your plant drain it. All of this mimics a flood & drain cycle without using a pump!

Sizing Up

All pots have a 25L capacity.

You will need at least 120cm x 120cm for every 4 x AutoPot XL.

We Recommend

  • Keep your system sterile with Silver Bullet Roots. It kills 99.99% of root diseases and stays active in tanks for 5 weeks!  

  • Only use mineral-based nutrient solutions – anything that’s thick, gloopy or contains organic ingredients can block your pipes.
  • Mix perlite or clay pebbles (50%) with coco or soil  as your growing media. 

  • Always put a 1 – 1.5” layer of washed gravel or clay pebbles at the bottom of each pot.

  • Keep your tank topped up to maintain optimum efficiency. Introduce more feed as soon as the tank goes below 1/3 full. 

  • Make sure that you hand water plants for around 10 – 14 days before switching your system on.

  • Flush your system every fortnight to keep pipes clear
