  • Complete 2' x 4' Aquamat w/ Blumat and BluSoak Capillary Mat System Kit-1

    Complete 2' x 4' Capillary Mat System Kit

    Description This kit contains everything necessary, aside from a reservoir and water supply, to set up a 2' x 4' aquamat capillary mat system irrigated with blumat/blusoak technology. Click here to download the instructions. The surface blumat keeps the capillary mat at a steady level of moisture. This senses the moisture level with the same blumat technology we use for containers, and delivers water/nutrient solution through lengths of blusoak that we integrate into the multi-layered aquamat. This is truly the most deluxe and comprehensive capillary mat system design that we are aware of. The kit includes: 1x 2' x 4' Multilayered Aquamat Capillary Mat 8' BluSoak Drip Tape (Replaces the tape used in stock Aquamats) 4x BluSoak x 8mm adapters 4x Blumat 8mm Elbows 6' 3mm Tubing 4' 8mm Superflex Tubing 1x Surface Blumat Sensor 1x 8mm x 3mm x 8mm Reducing Tee What You Might Need (Not included in kit)   Connection to your water source (either thru-hull bulkhead fittings for gravity systems, a pressure reducer, or a Blumat pump for larger systems) 8mm Supply tube to connect your water source to your Blumats Either an 8mm x 8mm elbow or an 8mm shut-off valve to put at the end of your supply line     Some of our complete Aquamat systems require special-ordering, and therefore there is a delay on shipment. If this is a concern or issue, please contact our office at 303.998.1323.

  • AquaMat 4'x4' Plain-1

    AquaMat 4'x4' Plain

    Description Multilayered. Self contained design. Best to use with mixes at least 50% peat. Can use with fabric pots, beds, or plastic pots with holes in the bottom larger than 1/8". Must be used on a level surface. Take extra precautions when laying mats directly on the ground--it should be clear of debris and gravel. Ideally, the ground should be covered by compacted sand or geotextile. Does not include Blumat Irrigation Sytem Potential Benefits (Compared to Hand-Watering) Save 92% on labor Save 70% on water consumption Increase growth by 12.5% Reduce fertilizer use by 80% Specifications Water Capacity: 2.1Gal/Sq Yard (9.5L/Sq Meter) Mat flow rate: 0.007 Gal/min/Sq Ft (0.3L/min/Sq Meter) Integrated with BluSoak Drip Tape Things to Keep in Mind: Start capillary action by combining overhead and sub irrigation (for about 7 days, continue overhead watering) Ensure soil or growing medium is moist Slope must be less than 0.5%. If slope is greater, split water injections into more frequent but shorter intervals Use with pressure reducers and/or gravity-feed Continue until roots have developed or the capillary link has been established Water consumption should be 50-80% lower than with overhead systems--runoff occurs when mats are filled for 25 minutes or more. Reduce fertilization rates by 50% due to lack of run-off Maintenance Disinfect, sweep, and rinse after each crop Repair tears on cover Store below 105F (40C) and protect against UV rays For short-term storage, clean the mats, roll them, and cover with a tarp https://www.irrigation.equipment/guide-to-blumat-regulated-capillary-mat-systems/

  • Capillary Pot Kit - 4' x 4'-1

    Capillary Pot Kit - 4' x 4'

    Description Bottomless pots and capillary mats make an ideal partnership. This kit is excellent for growers who want to minimize labor while growing high-quality starts. Click here to download the instructions. Because the water comes from the bottom, roots spread out and grow down instead of only out. The tiny holes in the capillary mat's top layer prevents the roots from growing into it but keeps them ready for a new home. To transplant outside or into a bigger pot or bed, just pick up and put the pot on top of your soil or planting mix - no need to dig a hole and cut into the soil’s microbe networks. After the roots have sufficiently decomposed, you can easily lift away your sleeve for re-use. This kit contains 20 1 Gallon Grassroots Sleeves, and one complete 4'x4' capillary mat system. What You Might Need (Not included in kit): Connection to your water source (either thru-hull bulkhead fittings for gravity systems, a pressure reducer, or a Blumat pump for larger systems) 8mm Supply tube to connect your water source to your Surface Blumats Either an 8mm x 8mm elbow or an 8mm shut-off valve to put at the end of your supply line
