AquaPots® How to Assemble

 

AquaPots® Ceramic Planter Assembly

Assembling your AquaPots ceramic self-watering container is quick and easy!
Follow these steps:

  1. Set the disc with attached soil tube down into your container, 
    settling it on top of the built-in ridge. 
  2. The disc should fit snugly in the bottom of the pot. If it does
    not, adjust the height of the soil tube to make it taller or shorter
    to fit your container.
  3. Insert the water tube into the smaller hole on the disc. It will stick
    up above the soil to make refilling the water reservoir easy.
  4. Pack Proven Winners Premium Potting Soil firmly into the soil tube,
    then fill the rest of the container.
  5. Mix 2 oz. Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food into the soil.
  6. Plant your plants and water thoroughly to activate the wicking action
    in the soil tube.
  7. Add two more ounces of continuous release plant food to the water tank
    via the water tube. These nutrients will feed your plants continuously
    as they take up the water.
  8. Finish by using your hose or watering can to fill the water reservoir
    through the water tube. You will know it is full when water dribbles
    out the overflow hole on the side of the container. This hole prevents
    you from overfilling the reservoir.  

AquaPots Lite Planter Assembly

Our lightweight planters pair perfectly with our self-watering insert
to turn them into AquaPots. Simply follow the instructions below.
They may also be used without the insert as an elegant lightweight planter - 
just don't forget to water! 

  1. Our AquaPots Lite planters come with a pre-drilled drainage hole in
    the bottom of the container. This is essential to let the excess water
    drain away.
  2. If you are using a square AquaPots Lite planter, set the square adapter*
    down into the bottom of your container. If your planter is round, skip
    this step.
  3. Set the AquaPots insert into your container and press down firmly.
    The adjustable soil tube can be made taller or shorter to fit your
    container snugly. 
  4. Extend the telescoping water tube all the way up to the top of the pot.
    It will be used to fill the water reservoir. 
  5. Pack Proven Winners Premium Potting Soil firmly into the soil tube,
    then fill the rest of the container.
  6. Mix 2 oz. Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food into the soil.
  7. Plant your plants and water thoroughly to activate the wicking action
    in the soil tube.
  8. Add two more ounces of continuous release plant food to the water tank
    via the water tube. These nutrients will feed your plants continuously
    as they take up the water.
  9. Finish by using your hose or watering can to fill the water reservoir
    through the water tube. You will know it is full when water flows out
    the drainage hole in the bottom of your container.

 *Square pot adapter sold separately.

AquaPots® Insert Assembly


Your AquaPots insert comes pre-assembled to make it quick and easy to turn
your own flowerpot into a self-watering container. The standard insert is round
and fits most 16-24" round containers. If your pot is square, you will need the
square pot adapter which is sold separately. The container you use with the
AquaPots Insert must have a drainage hole in the bottom to allow the excess
water to drain away.

To turn your own flowerpot into a self-watering container, follow these steps:

  1. If you are using a square planter, set the square adapter down into
    the bottom of your container. If your planter is round, skip this step.
  2. Set the AquaPots insert into your container and press down firmly.
    The adjustable soil tube can be made taller or shorter to fit your
    container snugly. 
  3. Extend the telescoping water tube all the way up to the top of the pot.
    It will be used to fill the water reservoir. 
  4. Pack Proven Winners Premium Potting Soil firmly into the soil tube,
    then fill the rest of the container.
  5. Mix 2 oz. Proven Winners Continuous Release Plant Food into the soil.
  6. Plant your plants and water thoroughly to activate the wicking action
    in the soil tube.
  7. Add two more ounces of continuous release plant food to the water tank via the water
    tube. These nutrients will feed your plants continuously as they take up
    the water.
  8. Finish by using your hose or watering can to fill the water reservoir
    through the water tube. You will know it is full when water flows out
    the drainage hole in the bottom of your container.
