From (month X) to (month X), the installation runs on the automatic mode and gets water just 4 minutes / day (24 hours) inside. The outside can be in between 2 and 3 minutes.
When the weather becomes warmer, the plants need more water. So from (month X) to (month X), the installation runs on the automatic mode and gets water just (?) minutes / day (24 hours) inside. The outside can be in between (?) and (?) minutes.
In case you just renovated the installation, there is also a ‘Manual’ button to give additional water for the time you enter or until you press ‘Manual' again. It is important to turn on the watering system for 10 minutes once or twice a day, for the first couple of days after renovation.
As the installation is next to the kitchen and a good hiding place, rats and sometimes mice make Hard Water into their home. This of course is problematic, due to the hygiene. In 2020 we tried to put metal sponged in between the soil. But as that was quite difficult, we ended up only installing a few.
- Loose plates
Every once in a while with storm or hard rain, some plates come down. It depends on how many actually fell, before we call Zeger Reyers to come and renovate again.
- Mealy Bug
This bug multiplies like rabbits. It can be cleaned with a mix of cleaning spray and water. To actually get rid of a mealy bug plague, you have to repeat this every month and keep a close eye on the installation.
