Can this pump transfer the water from the storage tank even when the tubes are not primed with water?
Yes it can. Water quickly and easy displace air in tubes if pump work.




Aliexpress can help you find anything like that system

Thanks very much for mentioning that. After you showed the image of your device, I took at look on ebay sites to see if I could find similar. There appears to be a similar model --- probably the same, but re-badged.

I ordered one just a moment ago, just so that I can test it out to see how it performs. That one is called 'Automatic-Drip-Irrigation-Plant-Kit-Self-Watering-Can-Timer-System-Indoor-Garden'. If the motor/pump section works nicely, it might be possible to use a micro-controller with time-clock module and battery back up to drive its pump. This should allow the watering schedule to be customised real nicely.

Will definitely update everybody in the future, once it arrives. And if I do any tinkering on it, will give updates about that too. Thanks again.
