This video demonstrates installation of the Intelligent Moisture Sensing Irrigation Controller on a Garden Tower 2 featuring our Watering System. This smart controller comes pre-programmed (by us at Garden Tower Project) to maintain healthy moisture levels in your Garden Tower through changes in temperature, plant mass, growth rates, sunlight, wind, and rain!
The Intelligent Moisture Sensing Irrigation Controller is the brain for our Watering System. The Watering System is a highly durable, calibrated irrigation system that distributes 0.5 GPM (gallons per minute) of water through the Garden Tower off household water pressure. The system is hand-built using only 100% drinking water materials (potable, non-toxic) for healthy organic gardening.
The Garden Tower 2 Watering System can be connected to any standard hose timer or irrigation controller for operation. We highly recommend this Intelligent Moisture Sensing Irrigation Controller which automatically maintains healthy moisture levels in the tower as conditions change (such as changes in plant growth rates, temperature, wind, and sun exposure).
Most Garden Towers need to be watered with 4-8 gallons of water 2-4 times per week (depending on conditions). An example basic watering program on a basic digital hose timer would be 3 minutes of activation (watering) every 12 hours (morning and evening): 3(minutes) x 0.5(gallons per minute) x 2(times per day) = 3 gallons per day flowing into the Garden Tower. This will need adjustment through the season as conditions change. The Intelligent Moisture Sensing Irrigation Controller handles all of these changes for you and rarely requires any adjustment.
All irrigation controllers can be damaged by freezing water in the their valve assembly. REMOVE the irrigation controller from the tower for winter before exposure to freezing temperatures and bring it inside! Turn off the unit and it will hibernate until the next growing season!
Our drinking water hoses are not included in the kit (required lengths will vary by your setup), but are available to order on the website if desired.
