AWS can it be used on a second story deck?
« on: April 24, 2021, 08:12:13 pm »
I have 4 earth boxes and I am planning on getting a few more.  I was looking to add in the AWS.  Our boxes are on our second story deck.  The hose connection to the house is right below the deck.  Will the AWS work if the boxes are essentially a floor above?

Thanks

Sure, as long as the faucet is on and the system is pressurized
Why Google, when you have me?

Please do be aware that many rooftop and deck gardens have had problems because of weight and water issues.

You did not mention how big your second story deck was....be aware that decks have limited load capacities and it sounds like you are wanting to keep adding to your container gardening. You might need to make a few modifications regarding decking/flooring, reinforcements, etc....
