A few technical bits
- 540ml is released into each grow bag per hour (from a 100litre waterbutt).
- The 25 Litre reservoir is sufficient for 3 grow bags for 3-7 days depending on plant size.
- If connecting to a water butt check that it has a hozelock type water butt tap if it doesn't you can add to your order
- Your waterbutt tap will need to be higher than the area you will be watering.

The Click & Drip Irrigation system kit for growbags waters plants with less waste and less risk of over-watering and under-watering than using a watering can or porous pipe.
When plants are watered by a watering can as little as 10% to 30% of the water reaches the roots of the plants. The rest of the water runs off or evaporates. The slow drip rate of this smart drip irrigation system (180ml per drip hole per hour from a 100litre water butt) means that the soil has chance to absorb the water rather than it forming puddles and evaporating or running-off.
Overwatering leads to 3 main problems:
1. Slow-take up - If plants are given a thorough soaking, the water makes the compost or soil especially moist. This means that the roots have little access to oxygen, and can only take-up a fraction of the water that they require.
2. Drain-off - Most of the water has drained away before the roots have good access to air, so they are not able to take-up the amount of water they need for healthy growth.
3. Suffocation - Overwatering will fill air-gaps in the soil with water, which means that roots will suffocate and rot.
Benefits of slow drip watering:
1) Plants need access to a balance of water and oxygen to maintain healthy growth. Slow drip watering gives plants plenty of time to take up water, as and when they need to.
2) Easy to control the precise amount of water each plant receives. No over or under watering, which are the main causes of root rot and split fruit.
3) Reduced risk of rot and fungal infections, as only the soil is moistened and leaves are never wet.
4) The dripper holes in the irrigation pipe only open with internal pressure. Therefore the pipe can be buried under compost, soil or mulch to help retain moisture levels around the roots and to reduce loss of water to evaporation.
How the Click & Drip growbag watering kit works:
Click your kit together in just a few simple steps.
1) Attach to your water butt.
2) Use your Non-Drip Pipe to take you from your water butt to the area you want to water.
