AquaMat 4'x4' Plain

Product form

SKU: IG17284

$92.18 Excl. VAT

      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
