Efficiently Control Watering with the Autopot Smart Dripper Module

Take control of your watering needs with the AutoPot Smart-Dripper, a perfect solution for plants larger than those grown in the Autopot Hydrotray Single 12" module. The Smart-Dripper ensures that moisture is maintained in the grow pot or soil, providing optimum conditions for even and healthy growth. With a self-contained reservoir and Smart-valve system, the drip rate can be easily controlled using multiple wicks to keep your plants perfectly watered.

Features and Benefits

  • Blockage-resistant design: The Smart-Dripper has fewer blockages compared to traditional drippers, as the system's narrowest point measures 2mm in diameter, reducing the risk of clogging.
  • Uniform output: Ensure consistent water distribution regardless of tubing length, water pressure, or terrain differences.
  • Adjustable drip rate: Customise the drip rate to as low as 2 litres per 24 hours for precise water control.
  • Low-pressure compatibility: The Smart-Dripper can operate with pressures between 1 psi and 10 psi, allowing use with gravity-fed tanks.
  • Convenient set-up: The AutoPot Smart-Dripper Module includes a bottom shell, cover, two wicks, 4mm tubing and tap, Marix, and a Smart-valve for easy assembly.

How to Use

  1. Assemble the Smart-Dripper module according to the included instructions, connecting the bottom shell and cover, wicks, tubing and tap, Marix, and Smart-valve.
  2. Attach the Smart-valve to the water supply.
  3. Adjust the tubing length, if necessary, and select the desired drip rate using the provided wicks.
  4. Place the Smart-Dripper near the plant to ensure the moisture zone is maintained in the grow pot or soil.

How does the AutoPot Smart Dripper operate?

The Smart Dripper has a Smart-valve connected to a water supply, which fills its reservoir up to 40mm and then stops. The high water level activates the capillary action of the wick, which draws water from the reservoir and slowly drips it into the grow medium or soil. The speed of dripping is determined by the size of the wick used. Once the reservoir is completely drained, the Smart-valve automatically re-opens to refill it, repeating the process automatically.

What are the advantages of using an AutoPot Smart Dripper?

The Smart Dripper offers several benefits: it is less prone to blockages compared to conventional drippers, provides a consistent drip rate, allows for adjustment of drip rates as low as 2 litres in 24 hours, and operates effectively under low water pressure from 1 psi up to a maximum of 10 psi. This also means it can function with a gravity-fed system from a tank.

Can I adjust the speed of dripping in the AutoPot Smart Dripper?

Yes, you can adjust the speed of dripping by changing the size of the wick used in the system. This allows for a drip rate as low as 2 litres in 24 hours of continuous dripping.

What is included in the AutoPot Smart Dripper Module?

The module contains 1 bottom shell and cover, 2 wicks, 1 set of 4mm tubing and tap, 1 Marix (attached to the bottom), and 1 Smart-valve.

Can the AutoPot Smart Dripper be used for larger plants?

Yes, it is well-suited for watering larger plants that cannot grow in the Autopot Hydrotray Single 12" module. The Smart Dripper helps create a zone of moisture to nourish the larger plant's growth in the grow pot or ground.

Will the AutoPot Smart Dripper still work effectively with varying water pressure and terrain?

Yes, the Smart Dripper's output is not affected by differences in tubing lengths, water pressure, or terrain. It operates effectively under low water pressure, from 1 psi up to a maximum of 10 psi.
