The Tropf Blumat system is great for watering your balcony boxes, planters, hanging baskets, and row crops. It fulfills the needs of the plants on an individual basis regardless of location, light levels or plant type. Saves your plants from excessve and incorrect watering. The Tropf Blumat system is always suitable when plant groupings require consistent moisture such as vegetable gardens, bushes and flower beds, grow bags and greenhouse containers. Not only do your plants receive the right amount of water, the slow closed 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 the “Blumat Accessories for Custom Irrigation Systems” on our site for all the accessories.
How It Works
The Tropf Blumat self watering system functions fully automatically. As the soil dries, its natural suction power triggers the water outlet in the Tropf Blumat Sensor allowing the water to flow. When the soil is sufficiently moist, the Tropf Blumat automatically stops. It makes no noise and does not spray.
Each Blumat Outdoor Sensor in the Deck and Planter Set, which are larger than the Blumat Juniors, covers an area of 12 inches diameter. To create your own system, add additional Supply Hose, Outdoor Sensors, and Distributor Drippers and you all set!
Tropf Blumat does not include a Pressure Reducer in their kits. You will need this if you are connecting your system to a threaded spigot, such as your home water supply or the spigot on a rain barrel. The Pressure Reducer is our item #IG12918.
