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.

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.These are great for watering long plant beds, planter boxes, and giving large plants an even amount of water in a circle around them. They connect to a Tropf-Blumat or a Maxi.This is less expensive than adding more sensors but you may need to add a filter to your system if you use nutrients in your water so they don't clog. This pack contains 10 distributors and 2 meters of (6.5 feet) of 3mm drip tubing. Two nozzles allow you to connect tubing on both sides of the dripper for up to five drip locations from one Tropf-Blumat (dripper chain). The end-distributor dripper has a drip nozzle on one side only for use as the end piece in a dripper chain. You can go as far as 100 cm (39") from the sensor with these and they water about 20 cm wide (8"). Minimum pressure to use them like this is 4.5 psi. You can go down as low as 2 psi but the last dripper or two might not put out much water. By adjusting the black screw on the top, you can use more. In pressure systems, customers report successfully using as many as 25 with just one Blumat sensor. Set includes: 10 distribution drippers (8 regular + 2 end drippers) 2 meters (6.5 ft) 3mm drip tubeThe 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.Connect your Blu Carrot Soaker Hose to a 3mm Blumat line quickly and easily with this adapter. This allows you to connect a Blumat sensor to your BluSoak 2.0 Drip Tape to allow it to detect when the soil is wet enough, and stop feeding the BluSoak with water. When the soil dries near the carrots, then the Blumat carrot (sensor) will begin to feed water back in to the BluSoak line. If the BluSoak isn't close enough to the sensor, make sure to use a distribution dripper (IG15557) in between the sensor and this fitting (example picture shown in third image).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.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!
