This kit provides an easy, fast, and water-saving way to water a 4' x 8' garden bed. No timers, batteries, or electricity required! This system utilizes a Blumat carrot to monitor the
moisture levels in your garden soil. BluSoak tape allows for even water
distribution. When coupled together with a Blumat carrot, BluSoak hose only delivers water to your veggies when they need it, which promotes exponential growth
and impressive yields. This kit comes with all the necessary
parts for a gravity-fed system (water source needs to be 6-10' above the
garden. For a pressure system running off a faucet or garden hose, add a Blumat Pressure Reducer.
This Kit Includes:
- 1 Blumat carrot (5")
- 45 feet of BluSoak soaker hose
- 1 soaker hose fitting (to 3mm Blumat barb)
- 1 end/flush plug
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 your soil is
sufficiently moist, pressures equalize, and the Tropf Blumat
automatically stops water flow. Essentially, water will seep through
your BluSoak hose only when your plants need it, thanks to Blumat
technology. For a gravity-fed system, you'll need a reservoir. 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!
