Auto9 AQUAValve5  Fabric 18.9L SmartPot

Auto9 AQUAValve5 Fabric 18.9L SmartPot


The Autopot Auto9 AQUAValve5: Maximize your growing space with Autopot’s Tray Systems. These innovative and efficient irrigation solutions were developed with Autopot’s commercial partners and are now available to the public. The development partners wanted to pull as much profit per square meter as possible. Tray systems allow you to achieve this with the capacity to irrigate multiple pots in single tray and lid assembly, all fed by a single AQUAvalve 5.

Aquavalve 5 – a 66% Bigger Inlet

PLEASE NOTE: We are currently transitioning from the 18.9lt Smartpots, to the new 20lt Flexipots. These are similar to the Smartpots, but have handles stitched on as well. We will start shipping out fabric pot 9XLs that include the Flexipots as soon as our Smartpot stock is depleted.

The needs of growers are ever-evolving, served by an increasingly diverse range of nutrients. With a bigger, 5mm inlet, the new Aquavalve 5 rises to the challenge of delivering the widest range of nutrients in a faster flow for a quicker fill, maximizing system efficiency. Maintenance is reduced and the risk of blockages is minimized.

Autopot Tray Systems run on exactly the same valve-driven technology as other Autopot systems. You are still growing power-free, with not a drop of water wasted. But Tray Systems can cut your overheads further. The reduction in components as opposed to multiple individual pots and trays (each with their own valve and line) means a fraction of the maintenance duties.

For commercial growers amalgamating the pots in a single tray promises to change everything. When growing plants on shelving that can be double or triple height, reducing maintenance duties is key. It’s challenging to tend to your plants and irrigation system when they are placed three or six meters above ground level! With Tray Systems you can take advantage of the vertical space you have without the concern of having to access a vast number of individual pots and trays. Not only are Tray Systems simple to install and operate, they irrigate with zero run-off so don’t require any plumbing for waste water.

You have the option of growing with the rigid Autopot XL 25L Pot or the Fabric 18.9L SmartPot.

The Auto 9 XL and Auto 9 XL SmartPot sets allow you to irrigate 9 pots in single tray and lid assembly measuring just over a square meter. All pots are fed by a single line to a single valve.
