AQUAvalve5 – a 66% Bigger Inlet
The needs of growers are ever-evolving, served by an increasingly diverse range of nutrients. With a 5mm inlet, the new AQUAvalve5 rises to the challenge of delivering the widest range of nutrients in a faster flow for a quicker fill, maximising system efficiency. Maintenance is reduced, and the risk of blockages is minimised - even with organics.
If mineral feeding is selected, the liquid or soluble mineral nutrient is added to the water in the reservoir in a controlled manner and fed via the pipework to the AQUA valves in the module trays. From there, the plants take up the water/nutrient solution as and when they require it. Feed according to nutrient producers’ guidelines.
AQUAvalve5 has revolutionised the way in which organics can be fed through AutoPot Watering Systems. For the first time, we can recommend almost constant feeding of liquid organic nutrients, additives, and boosters in solution via the reservoir and pipework.
It should be noted that this applies only to systems equipped with AQUAvalve5 and 9mm pipe and fittings. Earlier model AQUAvalves with 6mm pipe and fittings cannot constantly feed liquid organics in solution via the reservoir and pipework. The wider apertures of fittings and pipework on AQUAvalve5-equipped systems produce vastly increased flow rates that practically eliminate potential blockages.
AutoPot Watering Systems, System Modules, and Watering Kits are now supplied as standard with the large-bore AQUAvalve5 and with 9mm, 9-16mm, and 16mm pipework and fittings.
The original AQUAvalve, the 6mm pipework and the 6mm fittings previously supplied with the AutoPot range are still available as spares, as are 16 mm-6 mm fittings.
Your existing 1Pot, XL, XL SmartPot, and easy2grow trays, pots and lids will accommodate the new AQUAvalve5, the 9mm fittings and the 9mm pipe. The design of these is unchanged.
Newly sold Tray Systems, AQUAbox Straight, AQUAbox Spyder, and 47L/30L Tanks are drilled out to accept 9mm pipe and fittings.
Your existing Tray System, AQUAbox Straight, and AQUAbox Spyder will fit AQUAvalve5 but will need existing holes drilling out to 12.5mm. Use a 9mm Grommet and 9mm Golf Filter to run the 9mm pipe required for AQUAvalve5.
Your existing 47L/30L Tanks need existing holes drilling out to 12.5mm. Use a 9mm Grommet and 9mm Golf Filter to run the 9mm pipe required for AQUAvalve5.
FlexiTank and FlexiTank Pro Couplers are unchanged. Only in the event of connecting directly to a 9mm pipe do they require the new 16mm-9mm Filter and Adapter.
