4' x 4' Bed Blumat System, Living Soil
This kit provides an easy, fast, and water-saving way to water a 4' x 4' 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 outside where more moisture is needed and is especially great for living soil grows where you want the surface to be watered consistently. You can use this kit indoors but make sure you adjust it accordingly to avoid over-watering.
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. When coupled 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:
2 Blumat carrots (5")
1 Blumat Long (9")
4 distribution drippers
1 distribution dripper end piece
2 Blu-Soak Tape Fittings to 3mm
5 Blumat Distribution Dripper Stakes
15 feet of BluSoak Drip Tape
3 feet of 3mm tubing
5 BluSoak Stakes
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, 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, tap or rain barrel with the help of the Pressure Reducer or Thru-Hull Bulkhead Fittings.
The Tropf Blumat system is great for watering balcony boxes, planters, hanging baskets, and row crops. It fulfills the needs of the plants on an individual basis, regardless of their location, light levels, or plant type. Tropf Blumat systems are ideal for plant groupings that require consistent moisture, such as vegetable gardens, bushes, flower beds, grow bags and greenhouse containers. Not only do your plants receive the right amount of water, slow and consistent dripping ensures that your plants receive warmed water, avoiding shock.
How it works
The Tropf Blumat self-watering system functions automatically. As the soil dries, a vacuum and hydro-static pressure, coupled with a spring-loaded gating mechanism, pulls water from the main line. When the soil is sufficiently moist, pressures equalize, and the Tropf Blumat automatically stops taking in water.
PLEASE NOTE: This system does not include a Pressure Reducer or water source. A pressure reducer is needed if you are connecting your system to a threaded spigot, such as your hose/home water supply or the spigot on a rain barrel or reservoir.
Note: We recommend Blumat Classics (Juniors) and bottle adapters for houseplants. If a Tropf Blumat system (like this) is hooked up to a constant water source, a pet, guest, or user-error could causes a run-away and lead to waterdamage. Tropf-Blumats are best for greenhouses, grow rooms, decks, and outside gardens. Please contact us for any help, we are here to help make your life easier.
