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.
