The Tropf Blumat Small Kit with 5-Gallon Reservoir and Six Premium 5-gallon Fabric Pots is everything you need except for some soil and six plants—we've even included six of our favorite 5-gallon "Harvest Pots". This kit includes everything to create your very own electricity-free, gravity-fed system! Tropf Blumat systems can adjust to any plant type or desired moisture level.
This Kit Includes:
- 6 Tropf Blumat carrots (5")
- 6 Harvest Pots (5-gallon)
- 7 meters (23 feet) of 8mm tubing
- 1 tee splitter
- 1 elbow splitter
- 1 hose coupler
- 1 hose end-piece
- 2 rain barrel/gravity tank connectors (installed)
- 1 five-gallon reservoir with thru-hulls installed to attach to Tropf Blumat 8mm line
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').
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 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
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.
PLEASE NOTE: This kit 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. 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!
Note: Blumat Classics (Juniors) and bottle adapters are designed for houseplants while Tropf Blumat Sensors (the one's with the small adjustable brown knob on top) are designed for greenhouses, growrooms, decks, and outside gardens. Blumats Austria says "Please don't use the Tropf Blumats 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 an indoor floor, drywall, carpet, or furniture. 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). We have many guides for being able to set these up the proper way and avoid a run-away or general mistakes. Please contact us for any help, we are always here to help make your life easier.
