Gravity Watering

I created this gravity based bucket drip system to water my bonsai trees when I didn’t have access to a dedicated water line. The pressure is very low, but I found that as long as the water reservoir is a couple feet higher than the drippers, the hydraulic head is sufficient.

Pros: saves water, saves time, good for rainwater trap system.

Cons: potential of failure due to clogged lines or dead batteries, have to monitor/refill water in reservoir, cost of components.
