  • Watermate is a unique and revolutionary watering system designed to meet the needs of modern gardening and growing.
  • Over 10 000 gallons of rain falls on the average house every year and everyone knows rainwater’s best for your plants. So why not make use of this and give your plants a helping hand at the same time?
  • As an added bonus your water bill will plummet as you no longer have to pay through the water meter for using mains water.
  • The Watermate watering systems uses an efficient pump to move water from a water butt through a micro irrigation watering system.
  • The pump is turned on and off by a fully programmable timer so even if you’re away on holiday, you can be confident that Watermate is nurturing your plants with just the right amount of water when they need it.
  • The timer can be programmed to operate your watering system up to 10 times per day from intervals as small as one minute, so you have complete control.
  • The powerful pump is capable of controlling watering systems for baskets, pots, the largest of greenhouses or even a small garden!
  • You can even feed automatically by simply diluting feed into the water butt.

 The Watermate watering system is as easy to install as any of our watering systems. Simply drop the suction hose into the water butt from the pump and then connect the pump outlet to your irrigation supply hose as you would with any other watering system. The pump plugs into the mains electric timer (included) which in turn plugs into a standard electric socket. see diagram.
