Multipurpose Float Valve

The Multipurpose Float Valve works like a toilet cistern ballcock allowing water in until it reaches the level of the valve and then automatically turning it off - maintaining a constant level in your primary water tray or reservoir.
Use it together with an additional reservoir tank to keep your Quadgrow or Triplegrow Planters automatically topped up, water trays with plant pots in supplied with water or even pet and livestock drinking stations supplied.
