Farm Tub DIY Self-Watering Kits

Farm Tub offers a Do It Yourself (DIY) Farm Tub Self-Watering Kit to convert any stock tank or water holding planter into a Farm Tub growing system. The kit, which helps you create a self-watering planter, includes a reservoir insert, spacers, capillary wicks, a fill tube and Farm Tub Float water-level indicator and spigot for drainage. All you need is a planter or tank that hold water. If the planter or tank has holes they must be patched before set up.

We offer kits in 2’x 3′, 2′ x 4′, 2’x 5′ and 2’x 6′ rectangular sizes. Customers use a jigsaw to cut the insert platform to fit your tank or planter. (3’x 8′ rectangle and 3’x 3′ square are available for local pick up in Boulder or by special order only.)

If you have a Hastings Brand stock tank, we offer pre-cut inserts in 3′, 4′, 5′ and 6′ long (M and L widths). In the Denver metro area, we offer 3’x2’x8′ and 3’x2′ Round but we must have your tub to fit them.
