I recommend that you watch the measured Irrigation video:

DIY Solar Drip Irrigation Kit



As well as the User Manual, the kit includes the following components:

  • waterproof irrigation controller with solar charge controller inside
  • double pump with filter, fittings to connect to 19 mm poly pipe, and 9 metres of waterproof electrical cable
  • two float switches
  • light sensor
  • solenoid valve with fittings to connect to 19 mm poly pipe and 2.5 metres of waterproof electrical cable
  • adjustable dripper
  • 16 waterproof connectors for electrical wire


Working pressure 10 - 800 kPa

Maximum flow rate at 20 kPa is 320 L/h


The kit does not include the solar panel, the battery or the evaporator.


  1. Fully automatic including the filling of the header tank
  2. Smart irrigation controller – the irrigation is controlled by the prevailing weather conditions rather than a program
  3. A light sensor provides the option of irrigating at night time only without using a timer
  4. You can adjust the water usage by adjusting the control dripper
  5. The water usage is directly proportional to the net evaporation rate
    a unique feature of measured irrigation
  6. Respond appropriately when there is an unexpected heat wave
  7. When it rains, water enters the evaporator and delays the start of the next irrigation
  8. The water usage is independent of the water supply pressure
    a unique feature of measured irrigation
  9. Uses much less water without affecting the yield
  10. Simple and low tech and so there are fewer things to go wrong
