The DIY Basic Measured Irrigation Controller Kit  is a weather-based irrigation controller and it has everything you need except the evaporator. 


  • Completely automatic
  • Smart irrigation controller – the irrigation is controlled by the prevailing weather conditions rather than a program
  • Use for gravity feed or pressurised irrigation (water supply pressure at least 10 kPa)
  • Use for sprinkler or drip irrigation
  • Use for pressure compensating drippers or non pressure compensating drippers
  • You can adjust the water usage by adjusting the control dripper
  • The water usage is directly proportional to the net evaporation rate
    (this is a unique feature of measured irrigation)
  • Responds appropriately to an unexpected heat wave
  • When it rains, water enters the evaporator and delays the start of the next irrigation
  • The water usage is independent of the water supply pressure
    (this is a unique feature of measured irrigation)
  • Uses much less water without affecting the yield
  • Simple and low tech and so easy to assemble and fewer things to go wrong
  • You can leave your irrigation application unattended for weeks on end
