Automatic and time-saving irrigation

With a GARDENA Water Computer, your garden will be reliably and conveniently irrigated – even when you are not home. You win more free time and have a lush, green garden and beautiful, healthy plants. With the automatic irrigation in the early morning hours or evening, less water evaporates. This saves money and allows targeted, optimal irrigation.


Flexible irrigation control

It could not be more flexible. For irrigating your garden, you can choose up to six watering programmes daily. The watering duration can be set from one minute up to 9 hours 59 minutes. For additional flexibility, you can freely select the desired watering days. If irrigation is to be started immediately, it can also be manually activated.


Water-saving operation

With the connection of a GARDENA Rain or Soil Moisture Sensor, the automatic irrigation is interrupted depending on the soil moisture and natural rain. This allows water-saving irrigation.


Programs up to 6 areas.

The GARDENA MaxControl Water Computer connects to the tap and controls the irrigation of your garden automatically without having to lift a finger. Programming is uncomplicated thanks to the step-by-step menu and easy-to-read LCD display. The detachable control panel makes handling and programming trouble-free and comfortable. The integrated battery level display indicates when the battery needs to be changed.When used with the GARDENA Water Distributor (G1197) up to 6 different connecting devices can be individually controlled (sold separately).It comes with a two year warranty.
