Drinks bottles collapse and in some cases the water distribution is poor or it fails to deliver water, but possibly better than nothing if going away. I would not use it if I was around to water. It may be better if installed when potting up plants.
On the manufacturer's own WebSite this product is displayed with hard plastic 1 litre water reservoir and probably works well. 2 litre plastic drinks bottles merely collapse when still a third or quarter full and flow ceases. The same happens to a lesser extent with 1 litre bottles. Clever idea but unreliable.
This product is being used in a greenhouse and has performed well. The adjustments took a little bit of care in order that the flow rate could support 2 weeks of unattended watering. As stated in the accompanying info "pop bottles" of 2 litres can be used but they DO collapse readily and tend to be permanently disfigured and unusable when left for long periods
