Harvst – Water Mate Pro Automatic Watering Systsem

The WaterMate Pro from Harvst offers a solution to the age-old issue of irrigation management, saving growers time, money, and labour. This system allows for the automation of a necessary action which can otherwise be time consuming and labour intensive. It can ensure that plants always get the resources they need to grow, freeing growers to consider other production factors or business issues, improving overall business efficiency.

The WaterMate Pro automatic watering system is a high-power, high capacity system for large greenhouses, polytunnels and other controlled environments. It irrigates using a combination of timer and environmental data to target plants with just the right amount of water (and nutrients when coupled with a suitable fertigation system).

WaterMate is a modular watering system, versatile enough to fit into almost any controlled environment. This smart watering system helps you spend less time focussing on irrigation, and uses less water than a standard timer. WaterMate can either pump water from a tank, or you can connect it to a mains water supply, thus offering options regardless of your existing cultivation set-up.

It is designed for greenhouses up to 12′ x 18′, and polytunnels up to 40m2, but can be expanded to cater for any size grow operation. The standard kit contains up to 120 drippers, or 40 sprayers, soak hose and misters, inline pump, 20m LDPE, and 40m of micro irrigation kit.
