For large systems, we highly recommend implementing a pump. With a pressure system, you ensure a consistent pressure and you can generally run a lot more Blumat sensors then in a gravity system. How many plants can run off this pump system depends on many factors (size of plant, soil, temperature, etc...).. Our 50 plant pump systems come with everything you need to properly and efficiently irrigate large gardens and greenhouses. This specific kit includes both 5" Blumat sensors and 9" Blumat Maxis. This combination of topsoil and deep soil moisture monitoring will give your crops very precise water delivery. Blumat systems can adjust to any plant type or desired moisture level. Blumat sensors ensure that your crops are properly watered—even when you're not home!

Increase your yields and decrease grow times. Our fully-automatic, self-watering systems save time, water, and nutrients — and still ensure healthier, more potent, and faster-growing crops.
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 50 Plant Pump Kit is a great way to start your customized irrigation system. The flexible system can be expanded to include many more drippers. See 'Blumat Accessories' to expand your system to your specific needs.
How it works
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.
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.
