With the transformer integrated into the computerised timer the auto fish feeders are a breakthrough in both sophistication and exceptional value for money, and will be appreciated by all pond keepers who either have frequent holidays, or by those who are away from their ponds during most of the day.
The timer can be set for minutes & seconds (with 1 second being the ultimate minimum), and as a consequence this makes the autofeeder suitable for the smallest of ponds. It is believed that this facility makes the Cloverleaf Auto Fish Feeder totally unique in the value for money stakes.
Feeding small amounts at frequent intervals is scientifically known to be the best of techniques for the benefit of both fish & filtration systems, and the computer controller with digital display allows just this. Up to 8 feeds a day over any given period are possible, with full control over the exact amount being fed. The quantity of pellets dispensed is approx half a cupful in 1 minute which as a guide represents about 2 ounces of Tetra Koi Floating Sticks.
Although the Fish Feeders are IP55 protected the computer programmer unit needs to be housed in a dry sheltered position. In instances where playful domestic pets or young children have access to the pond the auto feeder casing should ideally be fixed down to the adjacent decking/paving for stability and security.
Feeder Size Details:
To give you some idea of the size of these feeders .. the middle size one that will hold up to 5kg of pellet food, stands 18" (46cm) tall and is 8 1/2" (22cm) diameter.... substantially built to last and certainly as good as any other feeder on the world market..
Specified weights are for guidance purposes only, and will vary subject to the manufacturer of products used.
These Cloverleaf Feeders are suitable for normal UK outdoor conditions - however like all electrical equipment, the mains plug and electronic timer MUST be housed in a dry enclosure. The base of the feeder is not designed to stand in water and an R.C.D. must be used. Do not emerse the unit in water, to clean use a damp cloth, and ensure that the unit cannot be either knocked, or blown by the winds, into the pond - full instructions are supplied with every Feeder.
The Digital Timer is easy to use and set and displays the present time. The timer is accurate to within 2 minutes per month of set time.
The timer can control up to eight groups of ON/OFF programs, and can also have combinations, such as hourly, daily, weekly, group of days for the ON/OFF programs. Even Daylight saving time can be programmed on the timer. The timer is provided with a rechargeable battery pack so that it can maintain the programs programmed by the user
