Why We Love It
We love the EarthBox Automatic Watering System (AWS) allows you to keep the plants in your EarthBoxes watered even if you don’t have time to water them on a regular basis. This means more peace of mind as you don’t have to worry about keeping your plants hydrated and healthy. For most plants, it also means faster growth, bigger yields, and more tender plants as there is no risk of the plants suffering from extended periods of drought which can negatively affect the taste and flavour of the produce.
The AWS uses a patented series of sensors and valves along with water pressure from the tap to keep your boxes watered. The best part is that this is all done without batteries or electricity.
Each sensor works independently, so you can connect a box of tomatoes along with a box of herbs to the same system and each one will get only the amount of water they need. It won’t overflow the reservoir of the boxes and each pressure regulator can be connected to up to 30 boxes within 60 meters or 200 feet or the spigot.
The water regular is the most important piece and controls the pressure from the tap to 20psi. It comes with a washer screen to prevent debris from getting into the tubing.
