Other WaterUps® Products


Perlite is a form of volcanic glass that is used in gardening to improve soil aeration. Given its aeration and water retention capabilities, we recommend using 1-2mm fine grade Perlite in the wicks to improve the efficiency of our WaterUps® wicking system. As noted in the WaterUps® Installation Guide we recommend filling each of the 4 wicks or feet in each cell with Perlite, which will require 0.42 litres of Perlite per wick or 20 litres per box of 12 cells.

Reservoir Liners

WaterUps Reservoir Liners are designed specifcally for WaterUps Wicking Cells to make the lining of your raised bed very easy.

WaterUps® Wicking Beds

eWood® Wicking Beds

The benefits of eWood® aren’t just environmental. eWood® is resistant to rot, insect damage, UV and moisture, and therefore has a long-life with low maintenance. eWood® is made in Australia using 95% recycled materials. eWood® is a unique plastic wood made from the mixed plastics of products previously destined for landfill such as: computers, televisions, white goods, commercial equipment, car parts and printer cartridges collected from the e-waste. The eWood® Wicking Beds come with WaterUps® Wicking Cells, a pipe kit and joiners, however pond liner needs to be purchased separately.

Special Order WaterUps® Timber Wicking Beds

WaterUps® also have available specially designed raised timber beds. The beds are produced in Australia from sustainably grown Australian plantation pine and are classed as suitable for use in sensitive areas, such as vegetable beds. As these raised timber beds can be built in a wide range of sizes, they are available on a SPECIAL ORDER basis only. They come complete with WaterUps® Wicking Cells, pipe kits, joiners and pond liner. Dimensions available: Heights: 400mm and 600mm Lengths/Widths: multiples of 200mm Timber used:
These timber beds are made from Ironwood® Sienna Sleepers which utilise a new colour and treatment technology which penetrates the timber for a rich, finished look similar to hardwoods, and making it an ideal building material to complement today’s outdoor landscaping projects. Note: The freight cost of these timber beds is high due to their weight, so we have provided a complete DIY construction guide that will enable you to purchase the sleepers and pond liner from your nearest hardware stockist and easily build your own. You then just need to buy the required number of WaterUps® cells, pipe kit and joiners. WaterUps® Timber Wicking Beds can be constructed to your precise requirements and are available through our Preferred Installer network.
