1. Drill a 6mm hole in water butt lid, thread the inlet tube through, push filter on to end, adjust length of tube so filter hangs 10cm off bottom. Take other end to pump, ensure there is some slack, cut clean and square and push onto inlet marked "I" so that tube is straight and does not pull. For the "C" series models you alsoneed to attach the water level sensor to the tube just above inlet filter and immerse it in the water. This will detect if the water barrel has run dry and will emit an audible warning. It also switches the unit off. This is supplied with 5m of cable - if you wish to mount the control unit further away from the water butt either:
a) immerse the sensor in a jar full of water or
b) remove the back of the case, detach the sensor cable from the circuit board and replace it with the jumper which is attached inside the case back.
2. Starting at far end from pump and working back screw/push drippers onto tube, stake into position, cut tube and screw on tee where next dripper is needed, add piece of tube, dripper and stake.
3. Repeat until all the drippers are in place, routing the tube inconspicuously and clipping into place as you go.
4. Ensuring a clean square cut and leaving some slack, cut tube and push onto pump outlet marked "O". All connections to pump must be straight and should not pull against the pump. Support tube if necessary with clips.
5. Charge the batteries externally for 20 – 30 minutes. When you refit them make sure they are held securely by the metal electrodes.
6. Turn pump on to number 3. The first time you turn it on, how long the pump runs is dependent on how much charge is left in the batteries, if fully charged this could be hours. After discharging a couple of times the control should return to normal. Then monitor, if watering too little turn it up, too little turn it down. Allow it 24 hours to settle. If it then waters too much turn it down, too little turn it up.
