    Midrange BluSoak Kit

    This kit provides an easy, fast, and water-saving way to water a 4' by 8' raised bed or garden bed. No timers, batteries, or electricity required! This system utilizes a Blumat carrot (sensor) to automatically water and monitor the moisture levels in your garden soil. BluSoak tape allows for even water distribution throughout. When coupled together with Blumat carrots, BluSoak hose only delivers water to your veggies when they need it, which promotes exponential growth and impressive yields. You can also leave your BluSoak tape under your garden all winter, no problem. Water source needs to be 6-10' above the garden for a gravity system. For a pressure system running off a faucet or garden hose, simply add a Blumat Pressure Reducer.?

    This Kit Includes:

    • 1 Tropf Blumat sensor (5")
    • 1 Tropf Blumat sensor Maxi (9")
    • 2 distribution drippers
    • 2 distribution dripper stakes
    • 2 BluSoak Tape to 3mm adapter
    • 32' BluSoak 2.0 Drip Tape

      What You Might Need (Not included in kit):

      • Connection to your water source (either thru-hull bulkhead fittings for gravity systems, a pressure reducer, or a Blumat pump for larger systems)
      • 8mm Supply tube to connect your water source to your Blumats
      • Additional Hold-Down stakes or 3mm tubing
      • Fittings (tee's, elbows, couplers, etc.) for your custom system

      Increase your yields and decrease grow times. Our fully-automatic, self-watering systems save time, water, and nutrients - and still ensure healthier, more potent, and faster-growing crops.

      Perfect for landscapers and home gardeners. It is easily installed with a pair of scissors and connects directly to your hose, or rain barrel with the help of the Pressure Reducer or Thru-Hull Bulkhead Fittings.

      PLEASE NOTE: This system does not include a water source. See 5-gallon Reservoirs below, sold with or without thru-hulls installed. Or if using your garden hose bib all you need is a Pressure Reducer. Let us know if we can help you select the right products for your custom irrigation system!
