3d model description

Self watering pots are bloody expensive. By using this simple water level indicator and some clay balls you can convert any ordinary pot to a self wat...ering pot.
- print the parts

- cut the 25 mm plastic tube to the required length

- cut the bottom of the 25 mm plastic tube to zigzag to allow water flow underneath the buoy

- push the plastic tube into the bottom cage and level its bottom with the cage's bottom

- pull the "top corner w scale" to the top of the plastic tube

- push the bouy and the red staw together (you may also glue them but it's not neccessary)

- put the buoy into the tube

- stand the entire assembled appliance to the corner of the pot and re-level the top/bottom parts again

- now fill the pot with clay balls, plant your plant into the pot

- start filling the pot with water by oozing the water at the root of the plant

- fill the water until the straw on the indicator will not exceed the max. level


Update 20150728: I added a more solid bottom cage which can be printed without support.
