    Hi Graeme,

    Don’t use Vermiculite, clay pebbles/pumice should be pH stabilised first as they are very Alkaline….. don’t believe the packaging if it say “treated or pH stabilised”…. Perlite is better….. 50/50 is good … take a read through the catalogue on the UK website and also consider joining the FB AutoPot users group, they are very helpful too.

    Hi Jackie, you can add a little hot water if the contents look a little dry but I would suggest after six month simply purchase another refill, glad you like the product.

    Hi … adding “cheese cloth will not stop roots from entering the AirDome and is not required, simply let the roots go into it you’ll be fine. Also to maximise the effectiveness make sure you use a nice open media … please see the catalogue on the website to see suggestions.

    Hi yes you can but turn the reservoir off first let the plants drink all the water and then move them. ensure that your highest tray is below the reservoir too

    Hi look for a pump that can supply 1 ltr per minute to each air dome…. on larger systems you can mirror the water supply. for example use the larger pipe as the main pipe and reduce to the smaller pipe at each airdrome connection and just cap the end of the large pipe

    Hi….. tray2grow should be turned on straight away, as it’s different in operation to the pot system or the way it delivers the water and feed

    Hi Ideally turn of the reservoir let the plants drink all the water then add directly to the tray, don’t pour over the AQUAvalve ….. fill to AQUAvalve nozzle then leave for a few hours and repeat then turn on your reservoir 12 hours later or once the solution has been consumed.

    Hi ….. The pH change will be due to the type of growing media you are using….. ideally the perfect pH in the TRAYS is 6.3, you can check from time to time by taking a syringe sample after the water has been in the trays for an hour or so and test….. SO to counter act this lower your pH in your reservoir to hit the pH seed spot

    Ideally feed just pH balanced water for 10-14 days this should cleanse your plants….
