The Patio Drip Irrigation Watering Kit from DIG Corporation contains .5 and 1 GPH (gallons per hour) drip emitters and a few low flow foggers to water up to 22 pots, planter boxes and hanging baskets around the pool, patio, balcony or on a roof garden. The kit includes all the components needed to water 14 pots or baskets up to 8", 6 baskets up to 12", and 2 baskets or containers up to 18". This kit can accommodate a flow of up to 25-30 GPH, using drip emitters and foggers with a variety of flow rates.
This drip irrigation kit configuration uses a hose end timer as a starting point and in this layout the controller in the kit can be used to water up to a maximum of 30 plants.
Note: The hose end timer requires one 9V alkaline battery (not included).
How much time to water: Turn the water on for 2 - 5 minutes. The goal is for all the pots and baskets regardless of size to drain at the same time. Program the irrigation controller for about 1 - 3 minutes less than the time it took the pots and baskets to start draining. If you need more water adjust the time on the controller or program additional start time.
Run the system for two to three days a week, depending on your location and the soil type. After a week or two, check the pots and the health of the plants, and adjust the irrigation time as needed. If you need more water adjust the time on the irrigation controller or program additional start times.
