Irrigatia - Model SOL-C12 - Weather Responsive SMART Irrigation Controller
The Irrigatia SOL-C12 waters automatically every 3 hours. The amount applied depends on 2 factors - how much sunshine there has been and the position of the control knob. The pump can be set up to water large or small plants, but will always apply more water in sunnier conditions. The SOL-C12 kit comprises 12 drippers and 15m of tube and is suitable for beds, baskets, row crops, pots, grow bags, specimen plants and tree establishment.
The SOL-C12 includes a water level sensor which emits an audible warning (daylight hours only) when your water barrel runs low and switches the controller off until the water level is raised.
The night mode sensor turns off the controller so that no watering will take place.
It supplies enough water for 5 large hanging baskets or 12 x 20 litre pots. If you want more drippers than this, then you will need to purchase the 12 dripper extension kit which will let you water up to 24 x 10 litre pots, but please remember that each dripper dispenses half the amount of water. When using 24 drippers then all the dripper heights should be within 1 metre of each other, although they can still be up to 5 metres above the water source.
