Raised Bed Self Watering Kit
Known as the Aquabox Spyder this kit offers you a easy way to ensure consistent watering for raised garden beds.
Easy to set up and install the Aquabox is a low maintenance solution which can be tailored to fit a range of raised beds and will prevent them from drying out.
A great solution for providing regular watering and ensuring a healthy high crop yield and it can even be connected up to your Garden Water Butts.
How the Raised Bed Self Watering Kit Works
The kit contains a patented valve which allows water to reach a set level of 20mm. Once this level is reached the valve will not allow more water in until the 20mm is all used up.
This ensures that your plants will never be sitting in water. When the water is used up the valve will automatically allow 20mm to flow again.
