When using the Plant Booster system to water plants in patio pots it may be easier to build a platform to secure the device, fulcrum and guides. (see examples below) This provides a way of locating the pot on the platform so if the pot needed to be moved or worked on for any reason, the pot can be placed back inside the guides. This ensures that the device will not have to be re-adjusted because the balance geometry will have stayed the same.
Note: by adjusting the position of the fulcrum, the weight of the pot transferring onto the device can be limited to ensure the device remains in its control range.
Platforms such as these would come in very handy in a Greenhouse using The Plant Booster system. There could be hundreds of platforms arranged on a table or frame, spaced as needed, allowing pots to be worked on frequently and placed back on the platform without further adjustment.
