If you have your own stock tank or planter, Farm Tub offers a Do it Yourself Farm Tub Growing System Kit to convert tanks or water-holding planters into self-watering planters. Each kit includes a reservoir insert, capillary wicks, spacers, fill tube and cap, proprietary Farm Tub Float water-level indicator, and spigot for drainage.  All you need is a planter or tank to create your own self-watering planter.

We offer kits in 2’x 3′, 2′ x 4′, 2’x 5′ and 2’x 6′ rectangular sizes to turn any water-holding planter into a Farm Tub self-watering growing system. 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 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.
