IRRIGATIA NEWS UPDATE:
  • CARE-FREE HOLIDAYING THANKS TO IRRIGATIA

    A recent online customer survey conducted by Irrigatia - the brains behind the only fully automatic solar powered system in Europe – has 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.

    More than 350[1] homeowners across the UK participated in the online survey.  Over 70%[2] 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.

    Fifty six percent[3] stated the Irrigatia system has helped them to save between 20-30 minutes a day with a staggering 86%[4] seeing very positive results on their plants.  Many are also enjoying a reduction in water usage compared to the watering can.

    “Unlike electronic timer systems that deliver water at a set time, regardless as to whether the plant needs it, the Irrigatia solar powered package 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,” says Erick Mackay, Sales and Marketing Director of the North Yorkshire based Irrigatia.

    “It gives people the freedom to spend more time away from home not having to worry or rely on their neighbours, friends or family to water plants in their absence.  The volume of water can be manually adjusted to suit individual watering needs.”

    Irrigatia is ideal for vegetable gardens and allotments, house plants, containers, hanging baskets, pots or plants and shrubs planted out in the garden and under glass.  All that is needed is an adjacent water supply and somewhere to hang the solar panelled control box to capture maximum sunlight which it stores in rechargeable batteries.

    They work anywhere including balconies on high-rise buildings or allotments where no power – other than natural sunshine – is available.

  • NOW YOU CAN WATER THE PLANTS WHEN THE SUN IS SHINING

    31/03/16 11:05

    September 2015

    Irrigatia says their only real competitors are the watering can or hose and theirs is the only fully automatic solar powered system in Europe.
       Unlike electronic timer systems that deliver water at a set time, regardless as to whether the plant needs it, this solar powered package 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.

    Irrigatia 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 watering process.

    In addition to glasshouses, Irrigatia is ideal for vegetable gardens and allotments, house plants, containers, hanging baskets, pots or plants and shrubs planted out in the garden.  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 is harnessing nature in an extremely clever way and because there is no electricity, and with huge water savings, it has high eco credibility,” says Erick Mackay, sales and marketing director of the North Yorkshire based Irrigatia.

    “They work anywhere including balconies on high-rise buildings or allotments where no power – other than natural sunshine – is available.  It is the 21st century irrigation solution for domestic gardens,” adds Erick.     For more information go to www.irrigatia.com
