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. Our systems save your plants from excessive and improper watering. 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.

This Deck and Planter Kit is a great way to start your customized irrigation system. The flexible system can be expanded to include up to 500 drippers. See 'Blumat Accessories' to expand our systems to your specific needs.

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.

Each Blumat Outdoor Sensor in the Deck and Planter Set covers an area 12 inches in diameter. To expand and customize your own system, add additional Supply Hoses, Outdoor Sensors, and Distributor Drippers.

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 systems (like this) is hooked up to a constant water source, a pet, guest, or user-error could causes a run-away, damaging an indoor floor, drywall, carpet, or furniture. Tropf-Blumats are best for greenhouses, grow rooms, decks, and outside gardens. Please contact us for any help, we are always here to help make your life easier.
