If you do not want to operate a pressure pump that creates a pressure line to power your barrels using spray nozzles or sprinklers for irrigation you need this part. There are multiple ways to fill this buffer (holds ~8 liters of liquid) that irrigate the inside of a soil-less barrel for a few minutes. You can also use a simple aquarium or pond pump.
This part is placed under the top lid and can be re-filled from the outside/above or also for a standalone soil-less barrel setup from the inside using a submersible aquarium pump. There is also an overflow hole that prevents over filling and drains excessive water from the buffer to the inside to keep the liquid in circulation.
24 2mm holes ensure irrigation time of ~3 mins.
