Tropf Blumat Automatic Watering
Increase your yields and decrease grow times. Our fully-automatic, self-watering systems save time and water while ensuring healthier, more potent, and faster-growing crops.
This kit includes twelve, 5” carrots and all the parts required for a gravity-fed system. Reservoirs should be at least 1 metre above ground-level. Ask us about an optional Pressure Reducer attached to garden hose or tap that can provide enough water for up to 500 Blumat Carrots. 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 (included in kit).
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.
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.
This Medium Starter Kit is a great way to start your customized irrigation system. The flexible system can be expanded to include up to 500 drippers.
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 equalise and the Tropf Blumat automatically stops taking in water.
Each Blumat Sensor in this kit covers an area 30cm in diameter. To expand and customize your own system, contact us for hoses and other additional Blumat accessories.
PLEASE NOTE: Tropf Blumat systems do not include a Pressure Reducer. You will need this if you are connecting your system to a threaded tap, such as your hose/home water supply or the tap on a rain barrel or reservoir.
