Learn more about what makes GoGro the best solution to your automatic watering needs, and how to get the most out of your new system.
The sleek and versatile GoGro system is truly innovative, every detail has been carefully designed to ensure a minimum level of upkeep and boasts many USPs including;
The valve is constructed from ABS to allow precision manufacture,
while the rest of the system is made from high quality, durable
Polypropylene – both are made right here in Britain!
It’s simple, firstly, you can use your existing pots (most standard 15L and 25L pots will fit within the system)! Simply place your existing pots in GoGro trays, lay down the required pipe work and attach to your reservoir. If you don’t have a compatible pot, you can easily transplant your existing crops into a new GoGro round pot.
No, our valve has been specially designed so it automatically controls water flow and level within the tray without the need for electricity. All you need to do is ensure your reservoir is elevated above the supply line and GoGro will do the rest!
The first generation valve has a 2mm inlet, a second generation is already in production boasting a 2.7mm valve inlet without compromising the valve inlet strength.
The tray floods to a maximum depth of approx. 3cm and then drains to a depth of approx. 1cm; we believe the additional depth/volume in the tray allows for a buffer capacity of nutrient as well as better circulation of nutrient beneath the pot.
We recommend only transplanting crops into the GoGro system when the capillary action of the crop is sufficient to provide adequate nutrient exchange in the tray. We recommend ROOT!T’s range of innovative propagation solutions to give your plants to best start in life.
Every plant is different and there is no definitive stage at which you should transplant into the GoGro system; however, we recommend the best time to do so is when you notice your crop becoming thirstier, and when you find yourself needing need to water the crop more frequently.
We expect a medium sized plant to consume 1.5-2L of water/nutrient per day under normal indoor conditions. This allows for a minimum of two nutrient exchanges into each module per day.
1-1.5L per 15L module and 1.5-2L per 25L module.
Each module comes with a copper impregnated root control disc, which should be placed at the base of the tray underneath the Clay Pebbles. For fast growing crops, it is inevitable that some roots will get past the control disc and start to grow into the tray, a swift quarter turn of the pot fortnightly (or more frequently if needed) is all that is required to disrupt this root development and prevent blockages.
