The AQUAbox Spyder offers a revolutionary self-watering solution for Grow Your Own enthusiasts. No mains water supply, pumps or timers are required. Simply connect to an existing water barrel to automatically water a 1.2sq/m area.
Positioned directly in the ground the AQUAbox Spyder is ideal for watering conventional beds or the increasingly popular raised beds. A series of capillary wicks fan out from the AQUAbox Spyder distributing water under the soil, across an area of up to 1.2sq/m.
With the AQUAvalve at its core, the AQUAbox Spyder draws on the water supply (water barrel or tank) as required by the plants, ensuring a fantastically efficient use of water. The roots of the plants instinctively head towards the water source, attaching themselves to the capillary wicks below the soil level. The capillary wicks should be changed every growing season.
The kit is supplied with 2 metres of 6mm pipe and a reducing connector with integral filter, allowing simple connection to a water barrel tap via a section of standard garden hosepipe (not supplied).
A spirit level in the lid of the AQUAbox Spyder ensures that the AQUAbox is level once positioned in the ground.
