Autopot Easy2Go Kit

Autopot Easy2Go Kit

The Autopot Easy2Go Kit is the ultimate holiday watering kit for happy, healthy plants. By incorporating the patented Autopot AQUAvalve, the Easy2Go Kit will keep plants watered for weeks using a simple gardening tray and water butt. The Easy2Go Kit is placed directly onto a tray (not included) along with your potted plants and distributes water to the pots from below.

Kits that include the new Autopot Aquavalve 5, which works with 9mm Autopot piping are now also available. 

Using coco coir substrate mixes in your pots will be very advantageous for watering from below, as the coir does a great job of soaking and dispersing water throughout the whole pot’s volume over time.

Unlike other holiday watering kits, the Easy2Go Kit provides optimum levels of water to meet the plants’ requirements – without the need for timers or electricity – ensuring healthy, correctly watered plants upon your return.

The Autopot Easy2Go Kit can be installed anywhere in the home, greenhouse, conservatory or patio and multiple kits can be linked together to keep larger amount of plants watered while you’re away.

This inexpensive, flexible system can be assembled in minutes and contains all fittings required to connect to a reservoir of your choice. You only need a water container with a minimum 30 liter capacity and a flat based gardening tray with a minimum depth of 30mm. (A hole may need to be drilled into the base of your water reservoir if no suitable valve or tap is already in place).

Autopot Easy2Go Kits include:

  • 1 x Aquavalve OR Aquavalve 5
  • 1 x Aquavalve Cover – to hold down and level out the valve
  • 1 x 1.5m length of Autopot piping (thickness depends on type of kit)
  • 1 x Top Hat Grommet (size corresponding to pipe thickness). Used when directly sticking Autopot piping through hole drilled into water reservoir. (9.5mm hole for “6mm” Top Hat Grommets and older Aquavalves. 12.5mm hole for “9mm” Top Hat Grommets for the new Aquavalve 5)
  • 1 x Square Sponge filter that may be stuck into Autopot piping inside of reservoir if required
  • 1 x Inline filter reducer, if reducing water supply line down from for instance 12mm irrigation piping, or thin garden hose.

Autopot Clear Propagation Lid

Clear Propagation Lid

The Autopot Clear Propagation Lid fits snugly onto our 15L pots, so they’re the ideal add-on for both the Autopot easy2grow kit when using 15 litre pots and the Autopot 1Pot system.

*Please note this only fits the Autopot 15 litre pots*

These lids can be used to protect young plants from the elements, or to root cuttings directly in your Autopot sets!

Simply pot a young plant and fit the Clear Propagation Lid on top with the vents closed. Over the next few weeks gradually open the vents to harden the plant off finally removing the Clear Propagation Lid completely during the day. If the weather is still a little chilly, you can continue to use the lid at night. Your young plants will be protected from the elements and will enjoy a healthy start in life.

The Autopot Clear propagator Lid fits on the Autopot 15L pot. This makes it suitable for use with the 1 pot system or an Easy2Grow (when using 15L pots!) When the plant is young, place the Autopot Clear Propagator Lid over the pot and gradually open the vent. This is best done over the course of a few weeks, unless the plant gets too big for it! If night temperatures are still getting a bit low, you can still use the lid to protect the plant.

Autopot FlexiTank Tap

Autopot FlexiTank Tap

An Autopot FlexiTank Tap comes in handy when you are planning or building an Autopot system and would like use a Click Fit Tank Adapter/Filter to run a trunk feeding line to multiple Autopot sets. These taps also serve to replace old, worn-out FlexiTank Taps.

The tap fits through the ready-made holes in both the FlexiTank and FlexiTank Pro ranges and includes 2 rubber washer seals that are hand-tightened to each side of the reservoir with the provided plastic nut. The tap can also be installed into any other suitable water reservoir through which the correct sized hole (26mm) can drilled to fit the tap. Hard plastic industrial drums are often use as water reservoirs when building hydroponic systems. When considering such a container, make sure that the plastic will not let sunlight through its walls. If sunlight penetrates into the nutrient solution, algae will start growing inside of it, causing nutrient depletion and Oxygen loss in the solution.

The outlet side of the Autopot FlexiTank Tap is threaded and fitted with a 26.5mm click connector, to which a Click Fit Tank Adapter/Filter can be fitted. Autopot piping (16mm) or irrigation piping (12mm) can then be connected to feed the Autopots in the system.

Autopot Piping

Autopot Piping

Autopot Piping comes in various thicknesses and is made from soft PVC, which is slightly softer and more pliable than agricultural LDPE or PVC irrigation pipe. The elasticity of the Autopot piping molds snugly around pipe fittings when attached, providing a leak-proof seal when used in low and no pressure applications, like Autopot’s gravity fed self watering systems. Fittings can also be removed from the this type of piping quite easily, allowing for easy deconstruction or changes in system layout.

We especially recommend using Autopot piping to connect your Autopot Aquavalves because of the soft fit.

Below is a table of the approximate inner diameter and outer diameter measurements of the various types of Autopot Piping that is available:

General Name Inner Diameter Outer Diameter Compatible Fittings
6 mm 4.2 mm 6.3 mm “5 or 6 mm” Fittings, 6 mm Top Hat Grommets*, Older Aquavalve systems
9 mm 6.5 mm 9 mm “9 mm” Fittings (Used with the new Aquavalve 5 and Aquavalve 5 systems)
16 mm 12.5 mm 18.5 mm “12 mm” Fittings & 16 mm Top Hat Grommets*. Used for trunk lines in multi-pot systems.

* Correct hole size must be drilled to house Top Hat Grommet.

All are sold per meter.

Autopot 47L Water Tank

Autopot 47L Water Tank Black

The Autopot 47L Water Tank is a solid water tank of high quality and is a cost effective water storage solution. The sturdy and reliable Autopot 47L Water Tank are ideal for gardeners who have smaller systems or gardeners who are able to grow free from the need for more portable, pack-away equipment.

Please Note:

All Autopot 47L Water Tanks now have a pre-drilled 12.5mm supply line hole, for use with the new Autopot Aquavalve 5.

It is important that you select the correct size of water tank for the system you have. Doing so ensures your plants are properly watered during the extended periods in which an AutoPot System may be left unattended.

Dimensions: 615mm (H) x 375mm (W – at lid) x 300mm (W – at base)

It is recommended to raise your tank to a minimum of 150mm above the highest AQUAvalve, although having the tank at the same height as the valves is also fine for smaller systems (with only a couple of pot sets in the system)

The 47 Litre Tank has sufficient capacity to irrigate (roughly) the following AutoPot Watering Systems:

1 Pot sets – up to 6 x 1 Pot sets

Easy2grow (2 Pot Sets) – up to 4 x Easy2grow sets

1 Pot XL / SmartPot XL – up to 4 x Pot XL / SmartPot XL sets

Aquavalve 5 – a 66% Bigger Inlet

The needs of growers are ever-evolving, served by an increasingly diverse range of nutrients. With a bigger, 5mm inlet, the new Aquavalve 5 rises to the challenge of delivering the widest range of nutrients in a faster flow for a quicker fill, maximizing system efficiency. Maintenance is reduced and the risk of blockages is minimized.

Compatibility:

Autopot has made it easy to switch your existing systems to the new Aquavalve 5:

The new Autopot Aquavalve 5 is connected to 9mm Autopot Piping, for which various fittings are available. Simply drill out your existing water tank or feeding tray (e.g. Auto 9 XL or Auto8 tray) supply hole to a 12.5mm diameter size. This will allow you to fit a 9mm Top Hat Grommet into the hole, which will accommodate the Aquavalve 5’s 9mm Autopot piping.

If you are currently using a 12mm trunk line, simply switch out your old 5mm T or Cross Connectors to the new 9mm Cross Connectors or 9mm T Connectors.

Black Autopot Inline Water Filter 12mm

Black Autopot Inline Water Filter 12mm

The Black Autopot Inline Water Filter 12mm will filter out small bits of debris that are present in a water tank or nutrient reservoir. This will help prevent piping and Aquavalve blockages from happening. This is very handy when using water sources that may contain particulates, for example rainwater. in your feeding or watering systems. Rainwater harvested from rooftops often has grit, leaves, twigs and other bio-matter in it and these will eventually get stuck inside small diameter piping or Aquavalves, leading to improper functioning of the system.

Contrary to clear plastic inline water filters this black plastic filter will block out all sunlight from penetrating into the water / nutrient solution. Any clear piping or fitting used in the supply lines of water and especially nutrient solutions will cause algae growth to form inside these clear areas, which may spread to other parts of the system.

The filter has barbed connections on each side, with the shaft outer diameter being about 12.5cm. TIP: If you are connecting piping to the filter, stick the end of the piping into a bit of boiled water to soften up the pipe. This will allow for much easier fitment.

The Autopot inline filter has mesh size small enough to catch particles that may cause problems in an Autopot system, but will still let through very small particles, bordering on silt / sludge. We advise consulting an irrigation supply store with regards to getting rid of extremely small or fine types of particulates.

Filter mesh size of the Autopot Inline Water Filter can be seen in the picture below:

Autopot Replacement Flexipot 20lt

Autopot Replacement Flexipot 20lt

Autopot Replacement Flexipot 20lt fits an Autopot XL tray and allows you to combine power-free, water efficient, low maintenance, modular systems with high performance fabric pots. Flexipots stimulate plant growth by aerating, feeding and guiding the root structure rather than merely containing it.

The porous BPA-free, lead-free Flexipot material allows improved gas exchange in the substrate. Free to breathe, the root zone will see dramatically enhanced oxygen levels that supercharges growth.

When root tips reach the porous side of a Autopot Replacement Flexipot 20lt, they are ‘air-pruned’ (deterred from extending any further) by the air outside. Secondary roots then develop, creating a fibrous root structure with vastly improved moisture and nutrient uptake. Root circling is thus also eliminated, making it possible to produce bigger plants from smaller pots.

Extremely durable and reusable, the Flexipots are easily cleaned between uses if required. Once emptied, the Flexipots are best left to dry. After a few days any dust and small roots are easily brushed off. Whilst this level of cleaning is completely sufficient, the Flexipot may be machine or tub washed in a peroxide solution, in order to sterilize. Do not put Flexipots in a tumble dryer.

When growing in Autopot Watering Systems, it is essential that a Flexipot Potsock (Potsock not included with a replacement Flexipot) be fitted to the base of each Flexipot to provide root control.

Room humidity may be higher than using traditional plactic pots, when growing with multiple Flexipots indoors, due to the porous, airy material of the fabric pots.
