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.
WaterUps Reservoir Liners are designed specifcally for WaterUps Wicking Cells to make the lining of your raised bed very easy.
WaterUps® Wicking Beds
WaterUps® Wicking Beds have been specifically designed and manufactured in Australia to fit our WaterUps wicking cells.

eWood® Wicking Beds
Special Order WaterUps® Timber Wicking Beds
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.
