New Product 6-port IG16636



This is a new product that could save some of you both money
and time. Instead of needing a quick connect for each carrot, with 
this you can disconnect up to 6 with just one and save the time for doing
so many. (Includes caps so you can have between 1 and 6 attached.)


Run-Aways—how to avoid



“Run-Aways” are Blumats that don’t turn off. Almost every time this happens, it’s because of air. Blumats don’t like air – either inside or outside or in the supply line.

A Hidden Killer: The Chain Reaction of Over-Watering




Improper irrigation can ruin an otherwise perfect environment.

In the “mind” of the plant, changing VPD levels can make a set irrigation schedule seem irregular.

It won’t really damage the plants, but it can disrupt the near-perfect environment that maximizes growth.

Exceptional Root Growth with Blumats



Everyone knows that root observation is a great way of determining a healthy plant,
and the more roots the bigger your plants will grow. 
But how about when you add
consistent accurate moisture to the equation? Well we had one Blumat user send us
these pics to show exactly that.



Is it okay to bury my BluSoak soaker hose?



Yes, it actually works better if buried. That’s when the root demand action kicks in. The root exudates pull on the water supply when the plant needs water, stops pulling when they have enough. Also being buried prevents UV from making the tubing crack and split. If buried, it can last over 25 years. Burying it also lets you plough or rototill over it in the spring. Don’t bury more than about 8’’ deep unless only covered with mulch, not soil. If installing under athletic grass, make sure it’s at least 4” under to prevent sogginess.
