This system is designed to automatically water pots up to 250 gallons (also ideal for small raised beds). This deluxe system offers precise moisture control compared to less-expensive systems. We recommend this system for those with very valuable crops with intention of maximizing their plants' yields. Our systems allow your plants to utilize a larger percentage of potting mixture by keeping most of the soil at a desired moisture level. With just a pair of scissors, you can customize this system to fit many different kinds of plants and layouts.

(See related products for a 5-Gallon Water Reservoir and optional Pressure Reducer, which are not included in this kit, but may be required to set up a complete and functioning system.)
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.
Reservoirs should be at least 3' above ground-level. An optional Pressure Regulator attached to garden hose or faucet can provide enough water for up to 500 Blumat Carrots (See 'Related Products'). 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.
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. The Tropf Blumat system remain suitable 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, but 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 your system 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 taking in water.
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: Tropf Blumat systems do not include a Pressure Reducer.
You will need this 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. The Pressure Reducer
is in 'Related Products' below. This system does not include a water
source. See 5-gallon Reservoirs below, sold with or without thru-hulls
installed. Let us know if we can help you select the right products for
your custom irrigation system!
