    excellent idea on the timer, here in aus we have to water earlier however due to the heat, the sun either evaporates a portion of it or the water acts like a magnifying glass and can burn the leaves... weirdest thing to see water burning leaves.
    anyway there is a very simple question i have would you prefer a kit(pretty much just plug in and go) that runs of mains or would you like something that runs of 12v and solar powered?
    i can see a simple mains timer hooked up to a pump being the very simplest way. also there are connectors for hoses that do the same.

    cool ty for the info. i can brainstorm now. have you found a pump yet? i was trying to figure out if we were using dual or a single battery hookup. i could find the parts for you and run through the setup. (i am really interested in this setup i want to do something similiar later) also what about charging the batteries would you like to include a solar charger for that as well?
