Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

I was so disappointed in this. I emptied my front flower pots clean, followed the video exactly and the top of the tube would not shut! So it was hard not to get dirt down it and I could not get the rubber hose to bend in. IN fact, it was way too long and I had to shorten it.

        Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

        I bought the smaller size because my pot was not bigger than 14 inches. However, the smaller one is too small for my pot. It doesn't even touch the sides in the bottom of my pot. Now I will have to get the larger size and pay for shipping again. I followed the size dimensions in the description when I order the smaller one.

          Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

          I am disappointed in the conversion watering kit the water is still in the bottom container and my plants are dry at top of planter. I called your customer care line and a very nice lady mentioned about the special soil that can be used with the conversion watering kit and that some people have used regular potting soil and it has worked well but that has not been the case for everyone. She herself has used the conversion kits and said that it does make a difference to use the special soil purchased from you folks. My planters are all planted and to change soil at this point I believe 1. would be a lot of work as I have large urns and2. would destroy all the plants and I would have to start all over again for this season. So in the future it might be helpful to explain on these products that they might not work if you do not purchase your potting soil. it certainly is not worth the money if I have to keep watering my plants although I have to admit the plants do not need as much water but the plants at the top can seem wilty and dry I think you should offer a reduced price for the soil to any one purchasing the conversion kits or at least give the ratio of soil to mix on our own so we can good results . these conversion kits are not inexpensive for what they are

          Taller Fill Tube, Please

            Comments about Self-Watering Conversion Kits:

            Could Gardener's offer a taller Fill Tube as an option, say, 22-25"? I bought the gallon size and Fill Tube was too short to come above soil in my pot, so I bought a washing machine hose portion to insert into the Fill Tube for added height. That worked, but now the tube is too narrow for the Floating Water Level Indicator to be used. It's been nearly 2 months now in a southern exposure setting and my plants are doing well, so that's good. But a taller Fill Tube would make this much more user-friendly.

              I converted all my large terra cotta pots that line the steps to my deck with the self watering kit. Now when I travel, I know the plants/pots won't dry out. Greatly cuts down on watering.

                  These are great to add to my own pots, to make them self-watering. The reservoirs hold enough that I don't have to water every day until it hits the 100's.

                    Love the product, love that one can reuse it yearly. My one complaint is that the cover to the black plastic tube that leads to the reservoir does not stay closed. It's quite fickle!

                    Great for my purposes: pots in full sun that are hard to access to water.

                    Reservoir popped off each time I tried to insert into pot. Maybe it was because the pot was square.

                    Cap broke off filling tube the first time I took it off.
