Installing automatic watering (Hydromat) in my polytunnel

Thu May 18, 2017 7:34 pm

So.. since I'm the lazy gardener.. I need automatic watering. Also in my greenhouse.

I choose the Hydromat watering system. Main reasons for choosing this one:
- Enough capacity for my polytunnel
- Water gets the right temperature (my outdoor watering uses cold water, this watering system will be warmed by the greenhouse indoor temperature before it's distributed to the plants)
- Possibility to add liquid nutrients if I want to do that later in the season
- Affordable (also after buying the greenhouse..)
- Good recommendations

I have this watering in my Greenhouse. Se this topic for more information about the greenhouse: My Polytunnel Greenhouse

Not so many pictures in the instruction, but there is a really good Youtube movie on how to install the system, so check that out before installing. Here are some pics from my installation:

This is a new product?
Is it a drip type or flow? How does it work? This looks interesting and might be something I would be interested in. Please let me know how it helps, or hinders your crop
Thanks

I think it's an old product @nige . I've seen people describing having their system for 10+ years. I also found this Youtube video with quite detailed information on the system, https://youtu.be/f9wwLIw_-9k . It's a drip system. The amount of water that drips is decided by how fast the water reservoir is refilled. Pretty smart construction.
