The Blumat Drip (Tropf) System does not need electricity, nor does it require a timer or computer. Each ceramic cone responds to the moisture content of the surrounding soil, only releasing the amount of water required by the particular plant at any given moment
The Blumat Drip system is a sensor and drip feed system, both at the same time.
The slow and measured release of water enables plants to receive water which has been allowed to stand for a while at ambient temperature which contributes to a healthy soil environment This ensures both profuse flowerage as well as healthy plant growth.
Conventional watering systems release water at intervals which are automatically scheduled via computer. What they do not take into consideration, is the amount of sunshine, the current moisture of the soil or the varying water requirements of individual plants.
YOU CAN NOW SAVE TIME, MONEY AND RESOURCES!
- Save yourself the bother of daily watering and unnecessary water consumption.
Statistics indicate that on average 100 litres of water are wasted over the summer months on hand watering container gardens and 200 excess litres on hanging basket plants. 350 excess litres are used on tomatoes.
- You will save your plants from the negative effects of under or over-watering. Blumat sensors ensure soil is kept evenly moist creating an ideal environment for soil biology, promoting plant health and vigour. In organic gardens, yields have found to be increased by about 15% over hand-watering in the same soil.
