Planters reservoir liner

 

How Reservoir Planter Liners Work

 

The vacuum-sensor reservoir surrounds the planting area, and is filled by hand every 1-2 weeks for exterior applications (in rainy locations such as South Florida, even longer), and every 3-4 weeks for interior applications.  The fill hole is plugged with a stopper (left), creating an airtight reservoir.

 

When the soil is dry (indicating the plants need water), the moisture sensor allows air to pass through the clear tube (center top) into the reservoir, allowing water to flow into the container from the water inlet locations along the bottom of the liner.  One moisture sensor is all that is required for Reservoir Liners up to 72" L.  The water wicks up through the soil, irrigating the plants.  The flat white discs prevent roots from entering the reservoir.

 

As the soil becomes moist, the sensor (typically planted 1/3-way down the liner) absorbs water.  When wet, it acts like a valve, blocking the flow of air through the tube.  A vacuum is created above the reservoir, preventing further watering until the soil dries again. 

 

When installed, the overflow drainage adapter (right) allows excess water that builds up (typically rainwater) to escape without disrupting the system.  It can be adapted to any drainage system, including a garden hose.
