AutoPot AQUAvalve 5 – 66% BIGGER OPENING!
The AQUAvalve 5 is here! 66% bigger opening means faster fill, increased flow and reduced clogging. Also, you can now use liquid organics with AutoPots! The AQUAvalve5 only works with the new, grommetted Trays.
The AQUAvalve 5 is an irresistible force, flowing like the torrents of spring. The ferocious speed with which water and nutrient solution move through the new 3/8″ pipe and fittings to AQUAvalve 5 – equipped modules facilitates faster fills for phenomenally febrile fertilization. The upshot? Even more responsive growing. Thanks to wider-bore fittings, pipe, and AQUAvalve inlet, increased flow velocity also serves to blow away any unwanted accretions. This allows you to grow with virtually any mineral or organic feed via the reservoir and pipework. Time to climb aboard as we show you exactly how AQUAvalve 5 can be fitted to existing AutoPot Watering Systems.
The great news is that your existing AutoPot Module trays, pots and lids will fit the new AQUAvalve 5, the 3/8″ fittings, and the 3/8″ pipe perfectly. We have a full range of 1/2″ – 3/8″ fittings to insert into your main feed line wherever you need to reduce gauge for the modules. Contact us if you have any questions about upgrading your existing AutoPot system to the AQUAvalve 5.
Once connected to the water supply, the AQUAvalve in every AutoPot Watering System controls the flow of water to the plants by simple gravity pressure from a reservoir of any size. No pumps, mains water pressure, electricity or timers are ever required.
AQUAvalve is an exceptionally responsive means of feeding. It opens to supply water to a 3/4″ depth and then closes. Once the plants have used that supply the AQUAvalve reopens to repeat the cycle. No need to second guess plant requirements, compensate for conditions or recalibrate unnecessary pumps or computers.
AQUAvalve 5 – a 66% Bigger Inlet
The needs of growers are ever-evolving, served by an increasingly diverse range of nutrients. With a 5mm inlet running 3/8″ tubing/fittings, the new AQUAvalve5 rises to the challenge of delivering the widest range of nutrients in a faster flow for a quicker fill, maximising system efficiency. Maintenance is reduced and the risk of blockages minimized.
AutoPot Watering Systems, System Modules, and Watering Kits are now supplied as standard with the large-bore AQUAvalve 5 and with 3/8″, 3/8″ – 1/2″, and 1/2″ pipework and fittings. The original AQUAvalve, the 1/4″ pipework and 1/4″ fittings previously supplied with the AutoPot range are still available as spares, as are 1/2″ – 1/4″ fittings.
Your existing 1Pot, XL, XL SmartPot, and easy2grow trays, pots and lids will accommodate the new AQUAvalve5, the 3/8″ fittings and 3/8″ pipe. The design of these is unchanged.
Your existing 12.4 gal Tanks need existing holes drilling out to 12.5mm. We recommend using a step drill bit to carefully increase the hole size to 12.5mm. Use a 3/8″ Grommet and 3/8″ Golf Filter to run 3/8″ pipe required for AQUAvalve5. If you don’t want to take the DIY approach, you can purchase a new 12.4 gal tank compatible with the AQUAvalve 5 and associated fittings.
FlexiTank and FlexiTank Pro Couplers are unchanged. Only in the event of connecting directly to 3/8″ pipe do they require the new 1/2″ – 3/8″ Filter and Adapter.
We sell AutoPot AQUAvalve 5 module packs so if you want a quick and easy way to upgrade, purchase 1x module pack for each pot you have.
