The Hozelock Aqua Control Water Computer Plus is a very simple and easy way to automate garden watering. I have a small garden and due to poor soil quality grow almost everything in pots. I installed a Hozelock watering system last year and I'm sure it has saved me hours of watering time and probably quite a few plants as I have a tendency to forget them.
The computer attached directly to the tap using standard hose fittings and is very simple to set up. Turn the dial to the dial to the current time and press the clock button, then turn the dial to the time you want watering to start and press the corresponding coloured button, repeat the process for the length of time you want watering to last and how often you want it to repeat and that's all you need to do. You always have to option to override your timings by switching the dial to 'on' or 'off' without disrupting the settings. I would advise bringing the computer indoors if there is any chance of frost - I was caught out by unexpected frost and water leaked into the battery compartment, but a quick dry out and a night in a warm cupboard and it worked fine.
The Aqua Control Plus is an electronic water timer with dial and button programming, allowing the user to select the current time, watering start time, watering frequency and watering duration. Program acceptance is confirmed by an audible 'beep'. Any element of the program can be re-set without the need to totally re-program the timer.
