An innovative & Easy to use hose pipe kit
Imagine this. Firstly, put batteries in the Buddy2 timer and screw it to your tap. (If your garden tap is conventional, it will have a 3/4" male thread that the timer will do-up onto). Screw on the two 3/4" female to 16mm compression fittings onto the two outputs of the timer. (It has a pair of male 3/4" thread, like most timers). Connect the 16mm supply pipe to the Buddy2 timer by pushing the supply pipe up into the compression fitting. (See Video). Then find a way of running the Supply tubing onto all the places you wish to water. Use the connection fittings and a pair of cutters, to tailor the tubing to give you a "Distribution Network" to carry the water to where you will be connecting the Leaky Pipe with the reducing connections. Run the LeakyPipe near to the plants, - (within 30-50cm as the water will spread laterally) and plug the ends. If you have a moment, please have a look at this video about how it can go together with fittings.
LeakyPipe works by wicking water into the soil it contacts and therefore works best if hoed into the topsoil or "on-the-surface" & covered by mulch.
A typical domestic water source is usually capable of charging 2-300metres of Leaky Pipe at one time. So you can do a surprising large area of discreet watering with very little effort. With this Buddy2 timer, you can run two separate areas, (or groups of areas), for differing amounts of time. By sequencing your watering, you can make bigger & better use of your water source.

As a guide. In the growing season, 30-60minutes of watering per day is a good starting setting for your timer. Then tune it to your needs.
