Thinpots Installation FAQs

How are Thinpots attached to Thintanks?

The cross wall connection void plugs are replaced with Thinpot connectors which are designed to have standard 13mm irrigation black poly pipe clipped in to the connectors. The Thinpots have a rolled top lip that slip over the 13mm pipe.


Can Thinpots be intalled without a Thintank?

Yes - it is possible to install Thinpots directly onto a fence or a wall using clamps to connect the 13mm poly tube to any suitable surface. Check out the photos in the Gallery.
We are also working on a free standing Thinpot Vertical Garden System and a further system to create a Vertical Garden privacy screen for patios and balconies.

Where is the best location to install Thinpots?

If the Thinpots are being installed on Thintanks then it will depend on where the Thintanks are installed. Thinpots can be installed on either side of the 1000 and 2000 litre Thintanks. They can even be installed on both sides of the Thintanks if the location of the tanks allows this.
If the Thinpots are being installed on a fence or wall then the best location will depend on what you want to grow.


How long does it take to install the Thinpot Vertical Garden system?

Installation of a single row of 7 Thinpots on a Thintank should only take about 20 minutes, excluding irrigation pipework and system connection and the planting of the pots. Installation of a 4 x 3 Thinpot Vertical Garden System on a fence (12 pots in total - see photo in Gallery) should only take about 40 minutes including a simple irigation pipework system with connetion for garden hose.
