I would not buy this again

    • Cap won't stay shut

      Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

      I bought these to use in my potted tomato and pepper plants. Even when they have water in them, the plant looks terrible, still needs top watering. The roots of the plants do not seem to be able to get water from the reservoir as informed they will. Will not use again. They are also very flimsy. After filling the tube and trying to get the cap to stay closed, if you put any push on the cap to close, it pops through the bottom section.

      They do not work

          Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

          I am very disappointed in this product. They are a complete waste of money. I still need to water my pot's
          daily or twice a day. The instructions were not detailed enough for success. The cork on the stick gets stuck
          in the container so, it is impossible to tell if there is enough water in the reservoir. If the reservoir was and or
          is full, the design is not comdusive for it's purpus.

            I like the design of this self watering device with the exception of the short watering tube. It would be better to make it longer for tall pots and be able to shorten it for shorter pots.

            I had a self watering pot and loved it. This insert allowed me to convert all my pots to self watering.

                I've had 2 of these for years & bought 2 more this growing season. I used to find it challenging to keep potted plants well watered during the hottest summer days. These make it easy! Thank you.

                  Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

                  The well appears to hold water for three or four days, probably because it dispenses the water below
                  the plants and there isn't the evaporation that you get from overhead watering. Plus the watering is
                  coming from a deeper level.

                    Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

                    I love these reservoirs. They reduce the amount of time spent watering container plants and I don't worry when I go on vacation about the plants dying from lack of water. The only problem I had was that my dogs think the plastic is a play toy. I had 4 containers on the back patio and had just finished planting with flowers. I went inside and when I came back out, 3 of the 4 containers had no plants in them. They were lying on the ground in a huge pile of potting soil. The tubes to the reservoirs had been removed from the containers and were strewn all over the back yard and had been chewed up. Still love these, but if you've got dogs, keep an eye on them! I still use the reservoirs for plants in the front yard.
