Product Description

TRUE REDUCER – Not a mere flow controller, this brings water pressure down to 15 PSi (1 bar)!
EASY TO INSTALL – Screws onto standard hose thread (3/4″ input), and ouputs to 8mm tubing!
ENDURING – Made from ABS plastic and designed with few points of failure, this is built to last!
BLUMAT-READY – Designed specifically for blumat watering systems and 8mm tubing, no tools necessary!
AUSTRIAN-ENGINEERED – This high-quality component is designed and manufactured by clever Austrians!

Blumat systems need low pressure, much less than comes from normal house water connections. The blumat Pressure Reducer allows for easy integration of a municipal (or otherwise pressurized line, such as from a well) water line into a blumat, blusoak, or easysoak watering system.
BEWARE IMPOSTERS! Many pressure reducers are not real pressure reducers at all, but are merely flow controllers, and reduce flow rates. However, reduced flow rates DO NOT necessarily correlate to reduced pressures. This is a true pressure reducer, and will reduce any incoming water (with a maximum pressure input of 87PSi) down to a 15PSi (1 bar) output. This is ideally suited and low enough for blumat systems and their components. Higher pressure will push tubing connections apart, and increase likelihood of flooding. This pressure reducer is extremely easy to use. The input side screws onto a standard 3/4″ hose bibb or hose threading, often found on taps outside the home, or even faucets inside the home. The output side (featured with collar) is ideally suited for 8mm tubing (I suggest using our super-flex tubing). This is the size that integrates directly with tropf blumats. This adaptation makes setting up a blumat system from a hose or pressurized line an absolute breeze, and you can install your blumats in seconds.
Blumat systems need low pressure, much less than comes from normal house water connections. Some of our kits include one of these but if you’d like to install the other ones or the separate components to a home water system, you’ll need one of these Pressure Reducers.
In gravity systems you’ll also need one if your storage tank is high uphill. In Grow Rooms and Greenhouses with a reservoir for mixing nutrients, you can connect a small pressure pump to this and automatically feed your plants when you water. On one side it adapts to a 3/4″ male hose thread and on the other directly to the Blumat 8 mm supply tube. Maximum input pressure is 87 psi.

On one side it adapts to a 3/4" male hose thread and on the other directly to the Blumat 8 mm supply tube. Maximum input pressure is 87 psi.The Tropf-Blumat (Tropf means drip in German) is a sensor that automatically supplies plants water through its thin tubing. This ceramic cone employs the principle of hydrostatic pressure, that delivers water extremely slowly, and at the plant’s own preferred rate. Allowing each plant to determine its own irrigation schedule.Use this special end piece to end your 8mm line and enter 3mm tubing. Use the special 3mm cap to cover and plug the 3mm elbow. This can be used to end your 8mm supply line, and then take out the little end black cap if you want to add another sensor or simply want to bleed water out.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.BluSoak Drip Tape Hold-Down Stake Long Mega by the bulk, purchase whatever quantity you want. The are cheaper than most stakes found on the market but work much better for holding down soaker hose / drip tape. They also do not rust because they are made of high quality plastic rather than metal. Approximately, 7" tall, and 1" wide.This 3mm tubing is ideal for blumat watering systems and other unique irrigation applications. This is the sizing that is included with each blumat. This tubing runs through the caps/tops of each tropf blumat as well as the classic models. This 3mm tubing size is also the tubing size designed for integrating distribution drippers to blumat systems. If you want to string drippers around your container, you will want some of this tubing! This 3mm silicone tubing is also ideal for integrating BluSoak drip tape to blumat watering systems as well. This is really the choice tubing for automatic drip irrigation kit(s) and any blumat watering system.
