Blumat Sensors

Automatic irrigation systems normally produce higher yields while dramatically decreasing labor costs. Expensive and complicated computerized systems can accomplish this, but only for an extremely higher cost while not working as well. We started off with only Blumat Classics mainly used for houseplants, discovered how to use them in Grow Rooms, then backyards and small farms; now in large commercial operations where the ROI is hard or impossible to match.

    Blumat Planting Tool Corer

    Out of stock

    Description When making a hole for a Blumat sensor, most garden trowels and tools will make too big of a hole. This one - designed for specifically doing just that - is only 1" wide (11"+ long) and makes that job easy while disrupting roots as little as possible. Also great for any planting job when you want to make a small hole or dig out weeds while disrupting the soil as little as possible.

  • Blumat Protective Cap-1

    Blumat Protective Cap

    Out of stock

    Description Keep your hands off my Blumats! This Blumat Protective cap prevents unintentional adjustments to the moisture level dial. Great for fending off children, pets, wild animals, or well intentioned employees.It takes some time and some skill to dial Blumats in just right. After you find the ideal soil moisture content, you adjust the valve based on growing medium, size of plants and pot, number of distribution dripper, temperatures, etc.So after finding the ideal setting, it can be very frustrating if a young child or curious co-worker comes along and plays with them, changing your settings. This protective cap will make that much less likely to happen - just snap on top of the valve dial. It comes off again but not too easily, enough to dissuade misguided tampering.

  • Blumat Tropf 9" Maxi Sensors-1

    Blumat Tropf 9" Maxi Sensors

    Out of stock

    Description The Tropf-Blumat Maxi acts as a regulator and dripper, just like the standard 5” Tropf-Blumat. This one is 9 inches long though. You put it in the ground 6 - 7.5 inches so it senses the moisture at a deeper level. This is important when your plants get bigger because the regular Blumat sensor might turn the water off too soon. This one might turn it off too soon if your plant still has surface roots. Some growers use both - especially if they are growing in coco or a hydroponic system. The Tropf-Blumat (Drip-Blumat) is a sensor that supplies plants with drips of water via thin tubing. As the soil dries, its natural suction power triggers the opening of the Tropf Blumat allowing the water to flow. When the soil is sufficiently moist, the Tropf Blumat automatically stops. The system functions fully automatically. Every plant, every container or group of plants requires at least 1 Tropf-Blumat adjusted to the individual needs of the plant. Larger containers or surfaces require longer or more than one sensor. All Tropf-Blumats are connected using one supply tube, this allows for flexibility in the layout and is changeable at any time. Automatically waters individual plants and only when needed. There are a few options for a water source; you can either connect the system directly to your hose tap or rain barrel (with fittings not supplied with this product).

  • Pre-set Blumat 5"-1

    Pre-set Blumat 5"

    Out of stock

    Description A game-changing innovation: pre-set 5" and 9" Blumats These two new products eliminate almost all the problems people have setting up and maintaining Tropf Blumats, save a huge amount of time, and also make it easy to adjust your entire system all at once! Most of the time people spend setting up a Blumat system involves adjusting the sensors - both initially and when you need to make a change. We can do that for you now so all you'll have to do is plug them in. To make small adjustments later to provide more or less water, you can make a 10-second adjustment on an adjustable pressure reducer (if you have one) and change the flow rates for all at once. Both 5" and 9" sensors arrive pre-calibrated with two markings on the brown adjustment dial - one for gravity and one for pressure systems. This new innovation makes Blumats practical for large commercial systems with thousands of plants as well as preventing the most common problems people have while dramatically decreasing setup time for small systems. Pre-calibrated for most soil/media types like living soil, standard potting mixes, coco, and peat; they take most of the work and worry out of the installation! Set just where you want them to be right out of the box. We normally recommend the 9" Maxis in these systems but also make the 5" size for pots smaller than 5 gallons. These all include an installed protective cap to prevent the setting from being accidentally changed. They come with two markings on the brown adjustment dial. Use the red mark for gravity systems and the blue one if you have pressure.

    Replacement Brown Cap for Tropf Blumat Sensor

    Out of stock

    Description This replacement brown cap is what goes on top of the Tropf Blumat sensor and is essential for the function of the Blumat carrot. This small brown cap allows you to adjust the flow rate of the Blumat, but more importantly also serves as a critical function in making sure to stop the water when the carrot senses that it is wet enough. If you lose or break this small essential piece, your Bluamt sensor will no longer serve its function so make sure to replace it with this replacement piece.
