Additional Self Watering Insert Information
To fill your reservoir, simply remove the stopper plugging the fill hole on the top of the reservoir and pour water in by hand. Replace the stopper when the reservoir is full. The water will flow into the soil through the holes in the bottom of the reservoir. This allows the plants to be watered from the bottom up, the way that nature intended. The reservoir contains a moisture sensor, which will cause a tube to close once it absorbs moisture, preventing your plants from being over-watered. When the plant has used the water in the soil, the sensor will dry, and the tube will open again and the process will repeat.
These reservoirs have a built-in overflow drainage plug in the sidewall. If the reservoir will be used outdoors, remove the plug to allow excess water to flow out as necessary. If the reservoir will be used indoors, leave the drainage plug in place, as overflowing should not be an issue. Questions? Email or call us toll free 1-800-896-0978
