The Tropf Blumat 5-Pack Starter Kit is a simple, low-cost way to get started using Tropf Blumats. If you only have a few plants or you'd like to learn how Tropf Blumats work before converting over to a larger system, this kit is just right for you. This kit is made for a gravity-fed system (does not include fittings to attach to a hose spigot or pressure system).
This Kit Includes:
- 5 Tropf Blumat carrots (5")
- 1 Thru-the-hull adapter for attaching to a reservoir (reservoir not included)
- 1 3mm-to-8mm end piece
- 7 meters of 8mm Tropf Blumat tubing
Increase your yields and decrease grow times. Our fully-automatic, self-watering systems save time, water, and nutrients —while ensuring healthier, more potent, and faster-growing crops.
Our starter kits are perfect for landscapers and home gardeners. They're easily installed with a pair of scissors and connect directly to your hose, tap, or rain barrel with the help of a Pressure Reducer.
Includes five, 5” carrots and all parts required for a gravity-fed system. Reservoirs should be at least 3' above ground-level. An optional Pressure Regulator attached to garden hose or faucet 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. For our customers' convenience, we also sell 5-gallon reservoirs with thru-hulls already installed.
The Tropf Blumat 5-Pack Starter Kit 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. The Tropf Blumat system remain suitable 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.
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 equalize, and the Tropf Blumat automatically stops taking in water.
Each Tropf 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.
This system does 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.
This system does not include a reservoir or water source. You can use your own or a 5 gallon bucket.
Tropf Blumat Austria says "Please don't use the Tropf Blumat indoors" because if hooked up to a constant water source and a pet, guest, or user-error somehow causes a run-away, it could damage your home. We, and many others, do in fact use these systems inside ourselves, however, we are generally around enough that if a problem did occur, we would be able to notice a problem and fix it in time (not the case if someone is on vacation).
