What is the main function of the Autopot Mini Smart Valve Mk3?

The Autopot Mini Smart Valve Mk3 is the heart of each AutoPot System, controlling the water level in a module or tray to give your plants the optimal wet-dry cycle. It allows total reduction of the fluid level before it refills, ensuring efficient water usage.

Can the Mini Smart Valve be adjusted for more reliable performance?

Yes, the Mini Smart Valve model has refinements that allow adjustability for even more reliable performance compared to its predecessors.

How does the Autopot Smart Valve provide plants with the wet-dry cycles without manual intervention?

The Smart Valve opens to allow water to enter the growing container at a set depth (approx 35mm), then closes, preventing more water from entering until the plant has used up the original supply. The wet-dry cycle is determined by the pot's rate of water consumption and occurs naturally due to capillary action in the growing medium.

What is the significance of the redesigned top float in the Autopot Smart Valve Mk3?

The redesigned top float in the Autopot Smart Valve Mk3 eliminates the possibility of a waterlogged float, ensuring consistent performance and water control.

What are the recommended water supply methods for the Autopot Smart Valve?

The Autopot Smart Valve can be connected to a water supply through pressure reduced mains, a pressure pump (such as the AutoPot Smart Pump Set), or gravity fed from a water or nutrient tank.

Is a filter necessary when using the Autopot Smart Valve?

Yes, it is recommended to install a 4mm or 13mm filter in the irrigation tubing before the water reaches the smart valve. This will help prevent blockages and ensure the smooth operation of the valve.
