Our medium kits are designed to water areas up to 3.5 square meters, or 12 potted plants. This kit is nearly identical to our deluxe medium kit, however, it comes with a 5-gallon gravity tank with thru-hulls already installed. i.e. This kit includes everything you need to create your very own electricity-free, gravity-fed system. Blumat systems can adjust to any plant type or desired moisture level. This specific kit comes with 5" carrots, which are better for smaller potted plants (10 gallons at most). If you have large plants (10+ gallon pots), we recommend using 9" carrots, or Maxis, to get water deep into the soil.
This Kit Includes:
12 Blumat carrots (5")
7 meters (23 feet) of 8mm tubing
2 T splitters
1 elbow splitter
1 hose coupler
1 hose end-piece
2 rain barrel/gravity tank connectors and installation instructions
1 on/off valve
1 pipette (removes bubbles from Blumats to ensure proper function)
1 5-gallon reservoir with thru-hulls already installed to attach to Blumat 8mm line
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.
