The “EasiOyYa Way of Watering”!
I am sure EasiOyYa’s will transform the way you water your garden. It’s a system that saves water, saves time, saves frustration and lets you get on with the important things in life, knowing your plants are getting access to the moisture they need 24/7.
This short video shows how the whole system can be set up and ready to plant your crops within a few minutes.
This is a typical set up of a garden watered by EasiOyYa.
It works equally as well for a series of pots.
No Pumps, No Electricity!
Moisture is delivered right into the root zone of your plants 24/7.
Notice in these photos above how the tank/rain barrel is set up? The EasiOyYa watering system is gravity fed so it is a matter of having a reservoir elevated slightly above the level of the plants you are looking to water.
Usually you can work on a rough rule of thumb that each EasiOyYa will maintain the moisture to plants within a 40 – 45 cm diameter. This will vary a bit depending on the types of plants and soil structure etc.
Rather than planting in rows like in traditional gardening, we tend to plant in little circles or “clusters”. This allows a greater number of plants to access the moisture from each EasiOyYa ensuring a very efficient system. For example, we may plant 6 lettuce around one, a dozen shallots around another and 3 capsicums around another.
Then it’s just a matter of connecting the supplied tubing back to the tank or rain barrel. There is a small tap that goes on the end of the line to bleed the air out of the system once it is all set up, tank filled and ready to go.
Guide to choosing a suitable tank or rain barrel for the EasiOyYa, gravity feed watering system.
You will find all the fittings required for a standard installation included in the kit, the only thing extra you require is a tank/drum/water barrel.
We can also provide a complete kit that includes a 30 litre tank, all ready to go. See it here
You may already have a water tank or rain barrel at home that will be totally fine to use but here are some tips to make the selection process easier. You may also find something suitable at a local store. It is always a good idea to use a dark color barrel as that will help prevent any algal growth. Also, the larger the reservoir, the longer it will run between top ups.
What we are looking for, is a rain barrel of suitable size that has a ¾” threaded bung/bulkhead or spigot down low that we can connect the EasiOyYa system onto.
These are examples of water barrels that are ideal as they already have a spigot or bung built in.
EasiOyYa waters all sorts of plants in all sorts of gardens.
Here is what a few EasiOyYa users have to say:
Alan on the Gold Coast sent us this shot of some of his tomatoes that are coming along nicely with the EasiOyYa watering system.
He reckons he’ll get about 20kg off each plant!
Greta on the Sunshine Coast also sent some photos of how she is growing lots of her food in half drums with the EasiOyYa watering system.
It really is quite a simple method but very effective!
Here are a few more photos of crops that have been grown using EasiOyYa’s as their only method of watering.
