Blumat XL Gravity Kit - Automatic Irrigation for up to 40 Plants

SKU: IG15723

Available to order


This kit, like the more common Blumat XL pressure kit, is tuned for gravity-fed systems rather than a pressure system, which means it's also electricity-free. It does not include a pressure regulator, but it does come with 2 thru-hull adapters (for connecting to a reservoir), an on/off valve, and an extra Tee splitter. This way, you can easily incorporate the recommended loop method into your system (instructions included.) If you love plants, you'll love these Blumat kits. From a reservoir, this one will easily water two, 4'x8' raised beds or a large combination of plants in pots, planter boxes, or various landscaping. 40 Blumat sensors will ensure that your crops are properly watered - even when you're not home!

This Kit Includes:

  • 40 Blumat sensor carrots (5")
  • 15 meters 8mm Water supply tubing
  • 2 bulkhead fitting (8mm thru-hull)
  • 2 tees (8mm)
  • 1 elbow (8mm)
  • 1 Reducing Tee (8x3x8mm)
  • 2 end pieces (3mm to 8mm elbow)
  • 1 Shut Off valve

Installation instructions

Increase your yields and decrease grow times. 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. This kit includes forty 5" carrots and all the parts required for a gravity-fed system. Reservoirs should be at least 3' above ground-level.

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.

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 water source. See our 5-gallon Reservoirs, sold with or without thru-hulls installed. Let us know if we can help you select the right products for your custom irrigation system!
