Tropf-Blumat - drip irrigation
The Tropf Blumat system is great for watering your balcony boxes,
planters or hanging baskets. It fulfills the needs of the plants on an
individual basis regardless of location, light levels or plant type.
Saves your plants from excessve and incorrect watering. The Tropf Blumat
system is always suitable when plant groupings require consistent
moisture such as vegetable gardens, bushes and flower beds, grow bags
and greenhouse containers. Not only do your plants receive the right
amount of water, the slow closed dripping ensures that your plants
receive warmed water avoiding shock.
Conventional watering systems release water at intervals which are automatically scheduled via computer. What they do not ake into consideration is the amount of sunshine, the current moisture of the soil or the varying water requirements of individual plants.
Tropf-Blumat is different: It does not have to be plugged in to the power supply, nor does it require a computer. Each ceramic cone responds to the moisture content of the surrounding soil, only releasing the amount of water required by the particular plant at any given moment. So Tropf-Blumat is a sensor and drip feed system, both at the same time. The slow and measured release of water enables plants to receive water which has been allowed to stand for a while at a temperature which is in keeping with the environment.
