Midrange BluSoak Kit:
This kit provides an easy, fast, and water-saving way to water a 4' by 4' 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 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. 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 Blumat carrots (5")
- 1 Blumat Long (9")
- 2 distribution drippers
- 2 distribution dripper stakes
- 2 Blu-Soak Tape Fittings to 3mm
- 16 feet of BluSoak Drip Tape
- 4 BluSoak Stakes to hold-down drip tape
What You Might Need (Not included in kit):
- Connection to a water source (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
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. Easy to install with scissors and connects directly to your hose or rain barrel with a Pressure Reducer or Thru-Hull Bulkhead Fittings.
The Tropf Blumat system is great for watering balcony boxes, planters, hanging baskets, and row crops. Tropf Blumat systems are ideal for plant groupings that require consistent moisture, such as vegetable gardens, bushes, flower beds, grow bags and greenhouse containers. Plants receive the right amount of water, and slow/consistent dripping ensures that your plants receive warmed water, avoiding shock.
PLEASE NOTE: This system does not include a water source. See our 5-gallon Reservoirs, sold with or without thru-hulls installed. Or if using your garden hose bib all you need is a Pressure Reducer.
