Solar-Dripper - An optimized drip irrigation system for outstanding water saving, ease of use and plant growth

The Solar-Dripper is an optimized drip irrigation system for gardens and indoor plants.

The solution uses the natural sun-related temperature variations as flow generator. Thanks to its original drip irrigation method, the Solar-Dripper slows down drip rates by 1 000 times and increases the clogging resistance by 10. It also features the incorporation of a Built-In Weather Modulation. This mechanism continuously synchronizes the watering flow according to the needs of the plant. The drip system is guaranteed against clogging for a period of 5 years and allows for the usage of greywater or unfiltered rainwater. Thanks to the lack of tubing, tools or special skills needed for installation, the Solar Dripper can be reused year after year without maintenance. In addition, the solution can be used to optimize fertilizer application delivered at the center of the root system.
