Pressure and Flow Reducers
Blumats require a pressure below 15 psi, and nothing above 8 psi for BluSoak tape. Blumats act as additional pressure reducers; in systems that combine Blumats and BlukSoak tape, a 15psi pressure reducer can be used (IG14606). Blumats and BluSoak both hold an ideal pressure at about 3 psi. Common, inexpensive pressure reducers are essentially ‘flow restrictors’ and don’t actually lower pressure unless the flow exceeds optimal Blumat system range.
