Growing a home garden ranks as one of life’s true joys. With busy lifestyles and multiple distractions though, it’s all too easy to forget an important watering schedule and see those special plants wilt instead of flourish. Timers can help but they don’t easily adjust for periods of hotter weather or unexpected rain. They also rely on undependable batteries or utility power. Blumats take the guesswork out of watering and give you extra time for the more interesting and fun parts of being in your garden.
Home gardens increase sustainability and help improve mental health. Our BluKits and irrigation systems keep your plants healthy, save time and water, and – with little setup or maintenance – maintain even and consistent soil moisture levels – no matter what the weather does! We have decades of experience designing the simplest and most efficient systems to care for your favorite plants.
Using Blumat sensors to control the water flow in an irrigation tape or soaker hose sounds both simple and obvious. However, it has a few complicated design and installation challenges. We experimented with many different types of products for this purpose, but none worked well until we found the BluSoak irrigation tape. Other styles didn’t work because they require a much higher pressure than what comes out of a Blumat. BluSoak only needs 1-2 PSI! A revolutionary permeable membrane ensures even watering. Lay BluSoak tape around your plants in any pattern. You can even bury under soil or mulch! If someone steps on the tape, an inner conduit will keep the water flowing. Even dirty water won’t clog it! In a side by side test with extruded poly drip tape, it saved 80% of water use, 75% of pump power use, and crops were 50% more productive.
