Autopots are an easy-to-use nutrient delivery system. Plants are gravity fed from a reservoir, no pumps or items of electrical equipment are required.

Instead, Autopots rely on the simple genius of their Aquavalve system to distribute feed to root systems as and when they need it.

  • 1 x 47 Litre Tank including Lid & 6mm grommet.
  • 4 x Trays and 4 x 15L pots.
  • 4 x AquaValves.
  • 4 x Root Control Disks.
  • 4 x Marix Disks.
  • 1 x 6mm Filter.
  • 2 x 6mm Inline Taps.
  • 2 x 6mm Cross Connectors.
  • 4 x 6mm Tee Connectors.
  • 4m of 6mm Pipe.

How the Autopot 4 Pot System 15L Work:

Out kits come with all the equipment, and necessary fittings needed to set up your entire system, making the entire process incredibly simple and hassle-free!

The pots have an amazing 15 Litre growing capacity, and are perfect if you're looking for massive yields, with half of the effort.

Autopots are a great way to supply your plants with the nutrients they require, without ever having to use pumps or other electrical equipment.

Instead, Autopots rely on gravity and the ingenious Aquavalve to distribute nutrients as and when they are needed.

Because of this, Autopot kits are simple to install and very user friendly.

Aquavalves fill trays up to the standard level of 20mm.

Once this nutrient has been absorbed and the tray is empty, the Aquavalve automatically refills it back up to the 20mm level using an ingenious float valve system.

Fresh nutrient solution is only ever delivered once root systems have absorbed the previous 20mm of feed.

Because Autopots are fed from underneath, they require a medium that is able to absorb liquid effectively, sucking it up to the upper regions of the container and creating an even spread of nutrient.

Mix perlite or clay pebbles (50%) with coco, soil or rockwool (50%) as your growing media.

How to Use the Autopot 4 Pot System

Kits will need assembling differently depending on the number of pots. This is actually quite a simple process.

Place the circular root control disc at the bottom of the Autopot tray, with metallic side facing up.

This will ensure that roots don't grow into the Aquavalve tray and cause blockages that may inhibit the distribution of nutrient.

The black marix discs also help to prevent blockages and should be placed in the bottom of your Autopot containers.

The purpose of the Marix Disc is to prevent compost or soil from leaving the pot, keeping the system clean & the Aquavalve free from debris. They will also provide minimum protection from escaping roots.

Although the Marix Discs will last several seasons it is advisable to replace the discs at the beginning of each season, this will prevent any disease from being transferred if present.

Always put a 25mm to 30mm layer of washed gravel or clay pebbles at the bottom of each pot.

Fill the container with your chosen medium and plant out the system. Autopots work best with absorbent mediums with good capillary action.

Mix perlite or clay pebbles (50%) with coco, soil or rockwool (50%) as your growing media.

Water your pots from the top down in an external area and allow them to drain fully outside of the Autopot Trays.

Allow 7 to 10 days of top down hand-watering before filling the reservoir and switching your system on.

Flush your system every fortnight to keep pipes clear.

Aquavalve Maintenance:

To check that the Aquavalve is functioning properly, hold it at eye level and take a close look at the yellow silicon which is fitted into the top float.

In order for the Aquavalve to function correctly, a tight seal should be formed between this float and the hole that sits underneath it.

If it doesn't sit properly over the hole, lift the top float up, remove the yellow silicon and give it a quick clean.

When you put it back into position it should form a tight seal.

The Aquavalve should be cleaned after each grow using warm soapy water and a cloth.
