This is a basic watering system I put together to keep my giant atlantic pumpkin hydrated while I was working away. Only cost a few dollars and about 20 minutes to put it together. The watering lines have since been added to to water my other garden beds.

This is an overview of what I have done rather than a step by step of how to make it, I wanted to make sure it worked before I made an instructional incase it didn't work.

Step 1: How It Is Put It Together

Materials:

-small solar panel

-old car battery

-wire and a diode

-plastic container

-cheap electronic timer module from online (only a few dollars)

-some sort of sealant for the plastic container

-silicone or sikaflex will do

-assorted watering system pipe fittings depending on how your system is set up

Method:


There is no reason why you couldn't use multiple timers and have more solenoids to control other sectors independently.
