Pots require more watering than a garden due to water loss. Dripper stakes are ideal for pots of all size including planter boxes. Flow and coverage can be altered by the rotating cap, you can choose where to anchor the stake for precise watering.  Stakes attach to 4mm tubing which can easily be punched into low density poly pipe connecting to your water supply.

Different stakes produce different spray arcs and patterns to suit a range of applications.


Octimitter Shrubbler Spike - Produces eight streams of spray which can be adjusted with the rotating cap including complete shut off.  The flow can be adjusted between 0-40LPH. The watering pattern is a downward arc suited to hanging baskets and plantar boxes.


Vortex Spectrum Spike - Produces a full circle spray with fine droplets.  Flow and coverage can be altered by the rotating cap.The flow can be adjusted from 0- 90LPH and 4m radius.Suitable for larger pots and taller plants.


Potstream Barbed Stake - This angled stake allows for side mounting on pots and containers.  The adjustable gentle stream pattern minimises soil erosion and the variable flow rate and pattern radius allows for use in various pot sizes.  The variable flow rate pattern suits 150mm-600mm diameter pots and walls up to 40mm thick.
