To assist in selecting the most
appropriate Irrigatia controller, we’ve
devised a simple method to demonstrate
each product’s capacity. We call them
‘Irrigation Units’, or ‘IU’ for short.

Irrigatia ECO friendly irrigation

The SOL-C120 connects to the following Irrigatia Kits:

Drippers: Use for pots, baskets and individual plants.
Seephose: Ideal for short runs in a mixed dripper / seephose environment, germinating seedlings, watering plant troughs and small beds.
Microporous Hose: Ideal for flower beds, raised beds, vegetable plots, fruit trees and fruit cages.

IRRIGATIA NEWS UPDATE:
  • It’s Time to Feed Your Glasshouse Crops

    16/06/16 11:44

    “We recommend customers use the soluble feed of their choice at ¼ of the normal recommended concentration, dissolved in the rain barrel.  Tomatoes should be kept a little on the dry side until first fruit is set, then keep them well watered but don’t drown them.

    “Peppers and cucumbers will be happy enough with the same regime.  Chilli’s want to be kept warmer and well-watered at this time of year, but drier as they approach maturity to boost the spiciness.

    “You will get better flavoured tomatoes by watering with plenty of potash and not allowing them to get too lush, but go too far and they will get blossom end rot.”


    The Irrigatia system is ideal for use in glasshouses, all that is needed is an adjacent water supply and somewhere to hang the solar panel and control box to capture maximum sunlight which it stores in rechargeable batteries.

    This solar automatic kit uses up to 90% less water than a hose or sprinkler and because the drip feeding point is at the soil level, there is no risk of scorching or burning foliage.  The water comes direct from a nearby water butt and, if these are not available, a reservoir can be purchased.  Liquid feed can also be added to the Irrigatia watering process.

  • IRRIGATIA IS THE TOMATO SITTER!

    09/06/16 12:27

    Irrigatia was established in 2005 by professional tomato grower and inventor of the solar automatic watering system, George Evans.

    A recent online customer survey conducted by Irrigatia found that homeowners are enjoying complete peace of mind when on holiday knowing their prized plants back home are getting their liquid needs when required, delivered naturally by their automatic watering system – therefore not having to rely on friends, family or neighbours.

    Unlike electronic timer systems that deliver water at a set time, this solar powered system automatically judges their needs and waters every three hours.  The longer the daylight hours and the greater the light intensity in a day the more the system waters.   The volume of water can be manually adjusted to suit individual watering needs.

    More than 350 homeowners across the UK participated in the Irrigatia online survey.  Over 70% stated ‘holiday watering’ was the key reason they choose the Irrigatia system followed by the fact that it uses rainwater from a water butt, and is weather responsive.
