Pressbox (Press Release) -
Aquasolo of France, a manufacturer of gardening equipment, has launched the Aquasolo®, a system for watering plants automatically. The patented system enables users to water plants during long absences, without difficulties – all it requires is a bottle of water and the Aquasolo® system.
The Aquasolo® system consists of a micro-porous ceramic cone that can be adapted to fit most plastic bottles on the market; it just needs to be screwed onto a water-filled bottle. The bottle is then turned upside down and the cone pushed into the plant’s soil. Finally, users needs to puncture the base of the bottle to create an air vent and irrigation system.
Aquasolo® is a universal system that fits virtually all styles of plastic bottle – there are three distinct screw threads on the cone to match different bottle sizes, from 0.5 litres to 2 litres. The kit can also fit some 5-litre bottles.
Since each plant has different watering requirements, Aquasolo® comes in a range of four micro-porous ceramic cones, each with a different flow rate, providing up to 70 days of watering without the need for refills. Each cone ensures slow, regular water dispersal into the soil.
This ingenious system enables plant irrigation with no outside intervention. Aquasolo® will distribute 7, 20, 30 or 50 centilitres of water per 24-hour period. Depending on the plant’s type or size, users can select the appropriate cone, with a 7-centilitre capacity for limited watering, 20-centilitre for average watering, 30-centilitre for heavy watering, or 50-centilitre for intensive watering, for example of vegetables. The size of the bottle depends on the length of time that watering is required. A 2-litre bottle with a 7-centilitre cone will provide 28 days of watering. With a large window box, several cones should be positioned in the soil. Moreover, the water can also be enriched with soluble fertiliser.
Aquasolo, which is headquartered in Lyons (in south-eastern France), manufactures gardening equipment.
Aquasolo will take part in the GAFA trade show in Cologne (Germany) from 31 August to 2 September 2008.
Aquasolo® is available from garden centres, specialist shops and department stores.
