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.
