gravity-fed system! Blumat systems can adjust to any

Our fully-automatic, self-watering systems save time, water, and nutrients — and still ensure healthier, more potent, and faster-growing crops.
This kit includes six, 5” carrots and all the 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 (See 'Related Products').
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 system 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 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. Let us know if we can help you select the right products for your custom irrigation system!
