A manual tap timer is an easy way to get started. Simply connect it to your garden tap and set when you want it to water. Need something a little more sophisticated? Go for a fully automated system. You can program when, where and for how long it waters different zones in your garden.

You’ll need a controller, solenoid valves, a manifold and 19mm or 25mm fittings, as well as clamps to secure it all.

Get started now and see how an automated system changes the way you water…for the better!
