Aquarium tubing to drain flowerpots on the deck

9 Jun

Here’s a little trick that uses aquarium airline to drain the excess water from flowerpots on your deck or concrete steps. We use compost in our flowerpots and when the water from the pots would go onto our deck it would stain it a brown color.
Leave the bottom of the pot completely plugged, then just drill a small hole into the side of the pot, maybe 2 inches from the bottom. Put in the air tubing and run it out into the grass or under the deck or wherever! It works for me.
