Blumat Small Box Kit - Automatic Irrigation for Up to 6 Plants
This small kit is designed to water up to six plants or 2.5 square meter gardens. Perfect to test out Blumats yourself, and easy to upgrade later by just adding on. Blumat systems can adjust to any plant type or desired moisture level. This specific kit comes with 5" carrots, which are better for smaller potted plants (10 gallons at most). If you have large plants (in 10+ gallon pots), we recommend using 9" carrots, or Maxis, to get water deep into the soil.
This Kit Includes:
- 6 Blumat carrots (5")
- 7 meters (23 feet) of 8mm tubing
- 1 tee splitter
- 1 elbow splitter
- 1 hose coupler
- 1 hose end-piece
- 1 rain barrel/gravity tank connector and 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. It is easily installed with a pair of scissors and connects directly to your hose, tap or rain barrel with the help of the Pressure Reducer.
This kit includes six, 5" carrots and all parts required for a gravity-fed system. Reservoirs should be at least 3' above ground-level. An optional Pressure Reducer attached to garden hose or faucet can provide enough water for up to 500 Blumat Carrots. If your reservoir does not have a thru-hull installed, you will have to drill a hole into your reservoir bucket and install a thru-hull piece. For our customers' convenience, we also sell 5-gallon reservoirs with thru-hulls already installed.
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: Tropf Blumat systems are not recommended for indoor use. If 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. For this reason, we recommend Blumat Classics (Juniors) and bottle adapters for houseplants, and Tropf-Blumats for greenhouses, grow rooms, decks, and outside gardens.
