Dear Visitor,

We have had the hottest summer on record with extreme weather events. There have been dry periods with frequent heavy periods of rain. It has highlighted the importance of measuring soil moisture levels so you can decide if and how long you can hold off irrigating for.


We have a new website

Make the most of your existing telemetry system by adding other sensors

Rain gauges | Well depth probes | Pond level transducers

We can also supply other measurement devices which can be installed and easily connected to your existing Aquaflex or Aquacom units. These additional devices allow more comprehensive measurements and save you time. Connecting these devices to your existing Aquaflex or Aquacom means data can be displayed alongside your soil moisture data or flow data.

Handy tip #1 know where your sensor is

The most common reason for people replacing their Aquaflex sensors is when they haven't marked the sensor location correctly and damage it when cultivating or ploughing the paddock. To avoid digging up a sensor use the map inside the lid of the telemetry device to locate your sensor and mark appropriately so it can be easily spotted from the cab of a tractor. If in doubt, contact Aquaflex for advice 03 384 8900.
