This kit provides an easy, fast, and water-saving way to water a 4' by 8' raised bed or garden bed. No timers, batteries, or electricity required! This system utilizes multiple Blumat carrots (sensors) to automatically water and monitor the moisture levels in your garden soil. For our Indoor Deluxe systems, we tend not to use the BluSoak drip tape because indoor plants stay wet longer. So instead, an indoor deluxe system will feature more Blumat sensors and distribution drippers.
This Kit Includes:
- 18 Blumat carrots (5")
- 54 distribution drippers
- 18 distribution dripper end-pieces
- 72 universal stakes
- 50 feet of 3mm tubing
- 6 Blumat 8mm Tee's
- 2 Blumat shut-off valve for air purge
- 24 feet of 8mm SuperFlex tubing
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 or Thru-Hull Bulkhead Fittings.
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.
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.
PLEASE NOTE: This system does not include a water source. See 5-gallon Reservoirs below, sold with or without thru-hulls installed. Or purchase a Pressure Reducer if using your hose-bib. Let us know if we can help you select the right products for your custom irrigation system!
