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
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 dripping water.
Each Blumat Outdoor Sensor in the Small Box Kit 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 water source. You must have a hose bib water source for this system to connect to. If you would like to convert the system to a stand-alone gravity system, see our 5-gallon Reservoirs below, sold with or without thru-hulls installed.
