Do wetpots break?
Many people ask to wetpots break. People are surprised to find a watering system made out of clay pots and assume it must be fragile. We have personally never broken a wetpot® in all the time we have been using them. Our customers have never reported breaking one either. However, just like a coffee cup if you drop it from a hight onto a hard surface its possible it might break. Or if your children decide to smash your coffee cups together for fun, then its possible they may break too but if you look after a coffee cup its likely to last for a very long time.
We recommend you take care to place your wetpots in a safe location while you are installing them so that you or someone else looking on doesn't accidentally stand on them before they are installed. Once they are installed in the ground beside your plants its very unlikely that you will break them.
Won't I break my wetpots by standing on them in the garden?
If you make a habit of standing on your plants and breaking them its possible you may stand on the wetpot® which would be buried under the soil beside the plant. However, once a wetpot® is buried in the ground it is very robust. Provided you don't start digging around your plants with a pitch fork or a spade, as wetpots will break if they are damaged in this way, just as traditional irrigation pipes can be damaged by puncturing them with a garden implement.
Will wetpots break from garden roots?
No. wetpots have been tested in situations where they are entangled in very strong tree roots and to date no wetpot® has ever broken from the pressure of roots.
Are wetpots easy to install?
Yes! They are very easy to install. You don't need to be a handy person or have any experience in gardening or irrigation systems in order to install them.
