      Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

      I have a large front landscaped area that I wanted to put large pots in with flowers. Since I am in and out of town a lot, watering consistently is a problem for me. These inserts for my pots solve that problem. I can water once a week and my plants are fine. Works great for me.

        The only downside when using this in an outdoor location, is that you have to drain the water out in the fall and then cover the pot in plastic so that it doesn't refill and crack the pot.

            I bought these self watering kits because I knew I'd be traveling a lot in the summer and nightly watering wouldn't happen. They worked like a charm!

              We've had a lot of rain in my area, but on a sunny day my tomatoes are still looking good. Thinking the water reserve is giving water on a sunny day.

                    Oh the joy of not seeing all the water draining out over the deck on a hot summer day and instead collecting nicely in the reservoir and keeping the soil moist. Such a simple but great investment.

                      Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

                      We purchased these reservoirs for cemetery pots in an old country cemetery. The pots bake in the sun and dry out in the wind, and the geraniums (a tradition in our area) struggle every year. Watering once per week is not enough. With the reservoirs, the flowers look great this year, despite some already very hot weather.

                      Our only complaint is that the covers on the watering tubes don't snap down, so pop open, which could cause more evaporation. We put rocks on top of each cover to keep them closed.

                      It works very well but the cap for the water tube won't stay closed. A small rock does the trick, but...
