4 x 8 Steensland Blumat Kit:
This kit provides an easy, fast, and water-saving way to water a 4' x 8' raised bed or garden bed. No timers, batteries, or electricity required! A Deluxe kit features more redundancy and will allow you to maximize the amount of potting mix being watered. This particular kit is ideal for outside where more moisture is needed and is especially great for living soil grows where you want the surface to consistently be watered. You can use this kit indoors but make sure you adjust it accordingly or you may risk over-watering the bed.
This system utilizes a Blumat carrot (sensor) to automatically water and monitor the moisture levels in your garden soil. Distribution Drippers allows for more distribution of water throughout the garden bed. Water source needs to be 2' above the garden for a gravity system. For a pressure system running off a faucet or garden hose, simply add a Blumat Pressure Reducer.
