    Please do not pour through the top ….. if you wish to use amendments, simply turn off the reservoir tap for 12 hours…. then when the tray is empty pour the solution next to the AQUAvalve…. not on it… fill tray to around where the pipe connects to the AQUAvalve and leave for 30mins to an hour and then repeat….. 12 hours later turn the reservoir tap back on

    Hi ….. Growing outside can create many issues if not protected from the elements…. Unfortunately as we can not see the plants in question it is very difficult to determine what issues your are encountering….. sorry we can not be any further help.

    Hi There…. Please place the AQUAvalve and cover directly onto the tray not the gravel…. The AQUAvalve must be placed on a flat surface in order to perform correctly, please also ensure the tray is level, use a spirit level to check

    Hi…. ideally planting a seed directly in a large pot is not recommended …. plants / seeds should be raised first in propagation trays and then potted up into small pots …. brought on then placed into the final pot….. take a look though the catalogue on any of the AutoPot official sites there is lots of information here to help….

    Hi ….. Sorry to hear this….. either ret the string on the lip of the tray or tuck them in the top of the pot.

    Hi There,

    I would suggest it all depends on the size of your reservoir. Personally I would supply the AQUAbox from a separate reservoir. If you order from an official AutoPot website you can choose to select the options your require 6mm or 9mm in the comments box and the correct unit will be sent.

    Hi…. if you are growing cuttings or small plants for a short period then there is no need for anything….. if plants are to be in the AQUAplate for a long period 2 months plus then you can use a root control sock under each AQUAplate

    Hi Please read the catalogue, brochure and the instructions with the system, are you ensuring that the AQUAvalve is secured in the tray, the half-moon at the back/bottom of the AQUAvalve needs to be pushed onto the tee section in the tray where the AQUAvalve is located and push down firmly on the main body of the AQUAvalve to ensure it is connected to the tee.

    Dear Mrs JH,

    Unfortunately you will need to speak with the seller, as you will need a reservoir with a 12.5mm hole in it and the 9mm Top Hat Grommet and 9mm golf filter, the hole you could do yourself but you will need a step drill bit and not a standard drill bit. I would ask the Amazon seller to resolve the issue for you. Please feel free to purchase directly from AutoPot in the future so that we can ensure all is correct.

    Hi Bax, I’m based in the UK and we don’t have Pro-Mix here….. if you contact the US company info@autopot-usa.com they will be able to advise better than myself.
