    Product Description
    Blumat Maxi Drip Self Watering Extension Kit - Pack of 2

    The Blumat Maxi Drip Self Watering Extension Kit - Pack of 2 is a specially-designed compact watering system for gardens and plants with an automatic irrigation system. It doesn't need to be connected to any power supplies, computers, electronics, and doesn't require a timer or any sort of item too! The ceramic cones react to the moisture content of the surrounding soil and only then will they release the amount of water required for the plants. This avoids plants from drying out or any of the negative effects of incorrect watering and over-watering.This ensures your plants stay strong and healthy even when you're away for a long vacation! With the Blumat Maxi Drip Self Watering Extension Kit - Pack of 2, you save money, time, and most importantly, resources.

    Care & Tips

    Deciding how many Trop-Blumat are necessary
  • Watering planter boxes Use the rule of thumb: 4 drip locations (Blumat) per 100cm box length (box width - 20 cm), 3 dippers for 80cm. For wider troughs such as 100 x 40cm, 6-7 Blumat are enough depending on the size of the plants.

  • Watering in pots: Every pot should have 1 Tropf-Blumat. According to the pot size, 1 Tropf-Blumat is enough for pots up to 20cm in diameter. For pots up to 40cm use 2 Tropf-Blumat, and up to 50cm 3 Tropf-Blumat. The size of the plant is also an important factor and sometimes the needs of a particular plant species plays a role when deciding on the number of Tropf-Blumat needed. Large containers such as planting tubs, for example, should often have fewer dippers in order to avoid over-watering.

  • Bed plantings: 2 plants (the size of typical summer flowers such as geraniums) require 1 Tropf- Blumat (plant spacing 20-22cm) or when when planted closer together, about 15cm) , 1 Tropf-Blumat is enough for a group of 3 plants.

    Connection to an elevated reservoir tank
    The connection onto the elevated tank (spigot with a hose) should be mounted towards the bottom of the tank, about 5cm above the tank floor (12mm borehole). The elevation of the tank should be at least 70cm above the watering level (top of the pot) to the bottom of the tank in order to produce the necessary minimum pressure. Overly low pressure can result in clogging of the tubing. The tank can be purchased at a local hardware store to meet individual needs. It should be impenetrable to light and should be cleaned occasionally.

    Tubing installation
    The 8 mm-water supply tubing should be placed near the plants on top of the pots or along the top of the planter boxes. For each desired Tropf-Blumat location, the tubing is cut and the T-connector is inserted into the two ends of tubing (for the last Tropf-Blumat at the end of the tubing, use an end piece instead of the t-connector). The tubing can be mounted using support pins which are an accessory to the system, or alternatively, wire fasteners or similar clamps can be used.
