If you didn’t know already, I’m from England. Our weather generally consists of clouds, rain and more of the above. On rare occasions you’ll see that bright yellow glowing ball that radiates heat, shining brightly in the sky. Maybe it’s because of this that I LOVE the summer weather in Florida. Lots of sun, lots of heat and wicked storms almost ever afternoon that you can set your watch by. The only thing I don’t look forward to is the increased risk of hurricanes. Providing your house and car make it through the storm, what do you do in the event of a power failure to power your Tower Garden? Thankfully we have a back up if your generator is already at full capacity!

Battery and Inverter
Whether you are at a show or are experiencing a power outage, with a deep cycle battery and an inverter you will be able to run your tower for a couple of days. Add a solar panel to the equation and, providing you have some sunny days, you should be able charge the battery as you go.
There are a couple of things you can do manually.
- If you are at home you could manually pour water into the shower cap frequently throughout the day. Unfortunately, this will not work for everyone.
- Take out the plants and put them in a tote full of water/nutrient water. They will be fine like this for a couple of days.
