The RTA System allows multiple Air-Pot containers to be watered by hand or with a drip irrigation system. The water/nutrient can be re-circulated or run to waste depending on the chosen growing method.
Note that the kit is supplied with fittings to fit in a specific configuration. Fitting instructions here.
If you need the pots, you can find our range of air pots here.
Looking for an irrigation timer to automate the feeding? We've got them all. Personal favs, hit up the GSE timer or the Time-R.
How does it work?
Using a watering can or drip irrigation system, plants are fed through the tops of the Air-Pot containers. Excess water drains through the Air-Pot containers and into the RTA Stands where it is piped into the RTA Control Unit. As the water level rises inside the RTA Control Unit, it activates an internal pump that pumps the water either back to the main reservoir for recirculation or directly to waste.
This simple but very effective system can be made to fit any size garden and provides a convenient way to manage your irrigation programme regardless of your chosen growing medium or irrigation method.
