Automatically water a 4' x 8' raised bed with just a rain barrel or water reservoir.

Increase your yields, decrease your grow times, save time, water and nutrients - and still have healthier, tastier, faster growing, and more potent crops.

Fully Automatic Self Watering System.  Perfect for Landscapers and Home Gardeners. It is easily installed with a pair of scissors and connects directly to your hose, tap or rain barrel with the help of the Pressure Reducer.

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 excessive and incorrect watering. Not only do your plants receive the right amount of water, the slow closed dripping ensures that your plants receive warmed water avoiding shock.

The Process

Water is sucked out of the ceramic sensor through the suction force of the dry earth. Suction tension develops in the Tropf-Blumat, the flexible membrane is pulled downwards, thereby allowing the passage of water, the drip tube begins dripping. If the earth is moist enough, then the subpressure in the sensor causes the water to be sucked back into the cone, the membrane returns to its original position and squeezes the drip tube closed with a rod, the passage of water is stopped. The point at which the valve closes is set with an adjusting knob. This determines when the drip tube is closed and by which suction tension (i.e. by which degree of dryness) the watering should begin.

Tropf-Blumat is an intelligent watering system, enabling the plants to take care of themselves. Watering occurs only in amounts that the plants actually need, not just as a back-up during vacation periods, rather throughout the growing season. The self-regulating sensor uses water pressure to control a slow, low dosage dripping, without electricity or use of an automatic dispenser.

Customizing for individual plant sizes and variable system requirements is possible at all times. This opens up a wide spectrum of possible uses- from balcony boxes, to tub plantings on a patio or in a sunroom, to smaller bed plantings, or solitary bushes in the garden or even tomato plants in a small greenhouse.
