Product Description

High quality, easy to use bulkhead fittings that automatically stop the water at both ends when a line is disconnected.
Just a quick twist connects or disconnects supply tubing. Great for flushing — quickly change from a reservoir with nutrients to one with just water.
Also very helpful if you use different nutrients at different times. We also have adapters so you can connect these to 3mm or 1/4″ line.

Description
ContentHigh quality, easy to use bulkhead fittings that automatically stop the water at both ends when a line is disconnected. Just a quick twist connects or disconnects supply tubing. Great for flushing -- quickly change from a reservoir with nutrients to one with just water. Also very helpful if you use different nutrients at different times. We also have adapters so you can connect these to 3mm or 1/4" line.Each Tropf Blumat can control 5 of these distribution drippers and saturate a 40" length - either in a row or around a large plant. In a pressure system, by adjusting the black screw, it's possible to do more than 5 but with a gravity system, usually better to stay with 2-3. If your plants and conditions are the same, you can also put one Tropf Blumat in the first pot with one distribution dripper and one or two in each plant after that. One customer reported doing this successfully with 25 distribution drippers running off just one Blumat sensor.These shut-off (or on/off) valves from Blumat brand are the quarter-turn valves you've been looking for! These valves are ideal for blumat watering systems. They can be installed in-line in any 8mm tubing, but we recommend super-flex. Simply remove the collar, and place the collar over the 8mm tubing. Then slide the tubing over the 8mm barb, screw on the threaded collar, and you are in a perfect position to irrigate your plants!These are the T pieces that come included with the Tropf-Blumat sensors. You can use these to replace a broken or lost one. You can also use it to run a direct line with the distributor drippers Note: Each carrot we sell (both regular and maxi) come with this Tee already attached, no need to purchase these separately if you already purchased carrots. These are great to have as replacements or if using multiple rooms and only one set of carrots.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.Use a 3mm quick-connect to turn the water from your supply line either on or off. Conveniently connect different fittings to serve different functions. Use a 3mm to 8mm to connect your main water line to your Blumat carrot line. Fit a 3mm to 3mm quick connect to turn the water going directly into your Blumats either on or off. Adapt a 1/4" drip line to the Blumat 8 mm tubing - quick and easy with this handy connector. Later if you like, you can change either side and go to 3 mm, 1/4, or 8 mm. These high quality quick connect can be implemented in a number of ways and are recommended for all watering systems to make your life easier.
