The Auto8 AQUAValve5: Grow what you want, when you want, enjoying the incredible space and maintenance saving benefits of a tray system. The Auto8 comes complete with either eight 15ltr square pots or 8.5ltr square pots.
AQUAValve5 – a 66% Bigger Inlet
The needs of growers are ever-evolving, served by an increasingly diverse range of nutrients. With a bigger, 5mm inlet, the new Aquavalve 5 rises to the challenge of delivering the widest range of nutrients in a faster flow for a quicker fill, maximizing system efficiency. Maintenance is reduced and the risk of blockages is minimized.
You can cultivate plants at various stages of development in the same tray system. Swap plants in and out with ease as needed. Minimize repotting and the risk of transplant shock.
The principles of Auto9 XL also apply to Auto8. Multiple pots are irrigated in a single tray and lid assembly by a single AQUAvalve. Footprint is reduced. Fewer lights are needed for more tightly arranged plants. Vertical racking becomes a viable option thanks to reduced maintenance.
Cultivating with Auto8 benefits growers in three key areas:
- Maximizes the available area
- Ideal for moveable racks and rolling tables
- Draws no more water than 8 single 1Pot trays
- Reduction in components = reduced maintenance costs and duties
- Unlike a large, single, flat tray the molded base minimizes standing water
- Lid blocks light and debris from entering the tray
