Now back to the watering system!

I have concluded that a solar powered system is NOT a viable system for N. Ireland. (No shit Batman)  So I have taken a slightly different approach, by using a higher capacity battery and using a micro irrigation system the problem is solved, at lease I hope this is so.

One like this that can be had for as little as £7 from my favourite store Lidl.  Now the plan is…

So you get your low-pressure watering system and use a low current solenoid, with the 7A/h battery you can be gone for 2 maybe 3 weeks.


The low current solenoid attaches to the low-pressure piping perfectly.

Then you can just go out a buy a £20 tape attached, battery powered time controlled watering system, but where is the fun in that?
