This is just a quick questionnaire about a solar powered watering system
i am hoping to make. please just write your answers in posts. thank you
for your time.
1. Would you consider purchasing a solar powered watering system for the
2. What size is your garden?
3. How often do you water the garden?
Everyday Every other day Twice a week
Once a week Never
4. Would you like the system to be modular (you can add on extra parts
when you need to)?
5. How much would you be willing to pay for the product?
£20-30 £31-40 £41-50 £50+
6. Would you like it to blend in with the garden or stand out?
Blend in Stand out
7. Would you like the system to water automatically at certain times of
8. How old are you?
No. I notice that you are not at all interested in my reason why. Odd.
When it is necessary, which is not some particular time interval.
Watering systems are already extensible, why would you not have that
$0 since I have no idea what the capabilities of the system are.
In what part of the world are watering systems a fashion statement? Are you
harbouring a fetish for black polypipe? A warning: polypipe doesn't carry
water when it is kinky.
No, that presupposes the garden needs watering.
Too old to have much patience with such a silly survey.
You haven't mentioned any reason why one might want a solar powered watering
system. Consider where water comes from. For city dwellers in developed
countries (most readers here) it comes out of a tap at enough pressure to be
delivered through a passive watering system. So that means a high
proportion (my guess 90%) of readers have no need for your product.
For others water comes from a well, dam, tank, or a natural body of water.
Such people probably have pumping and delivery systems to get the water to
the garden but they might be interested in using solar energy to power the
pump. Why would they do that? Well, it _might_ be cheaper or more
sustainable, or be available where there is no electricity. Would your
system suit any of them? From your description there is no way of knowing.
So who are you going to get interested in this? I don't know.
From these results I can deduce that the majority of the people surveyed
were miserable gits who enjoy taking time to crush the dreams of
aspiring product designers. This will influence my product greatly and
it was very useful to future product development of the product. *NOT*
I understand you feel bad being told your baby is ugly - get used to it - if
you are going to expect agreement with your pre-conceived ideas you are
going to get that a lot. If you are immune to learning something from a
person who actually waters large gardens in a demanding environment and has
built watering systems then this product doesn't have any future to develop.
For example Q3 shows you don't understand at least one basic concept of
watering. Why would that information not influence you?
The smart thing would be to engage with those who criticise and revise your
thinking accordingly not complain because their feedback doesn't match your
dream. You can take your bat and ball and go home or remove the blinkers
and try again. You decide.
Ditto. I immediatley thought the 'solar powered watering system' might be a
solar pump on a dam, but then they aren't at all new or unusual so why would
anyone want answers about that existing product already developed. When I
read the rest of the questions I lost interest once I saw the tiny sizes of
gardens. Anything designed for a garden that tiny wouldn't be of any use to
