This kit provides an easy, fast, and water-saving way to water a 15 gallon fabric pot. No timers, batteries, or electricity required! This mid-range system utilizes two Blumat carrot (sensor) to automatically water and monitor the moisture levels in your garden soil, along with a Maxi long (9") carrot in order to water the soil at a lower depth. This kit also includes distribution drippers to be attached to one of the 5" sensors in order to evenly spread out the moisture for your top layer of soil. This ensures a more even distribution of moisture throughout the pot. As a safety net, one of the 5" sensors is left without drippers.
Water source needs to be above the garden for a gravity system. For a pressure system running off a faucet or garden hose, simply add a Blumat Pressure Reducer.
What You Might Need (Not included in kit):
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 your soil is sufficiently moist, pressures equalize, and the Tropf Blumat automatically stops water flow. Essentially, water will seep through your BluSoak hose only when your plants need it, thanks to Blumat technology. For a gravity-fed system, you'll need a reservoir. See 5-gallon Reservoirs below, sold with or without thru-hulls installed. Let us know if we can help you select the right products for your custom irrigation system!
