Newish Blumat watering system design.
I LOVE my blumats, but I was kind of frustrated by the uneven watering in my last grow. I found some parts online that would help me solve this problem, plus I love tinkerin.
Just a general overview before I setup the system.
I got GOODIES! T's and smaller T's and distribution drippers oh my!
Use your imagination how I got to this point, just a bunch of cutting stabbing and cussing. (Side note: If you ever run blumats, do yourself a huge favor and GET yourself some of the orange superflex tubing. It's so much nicer to work with than the stock black plastic tubing.
I should have ordered more stakes. (See the clothespin lol) I should have also ordered a few extra parts, but I think this will work (Famous last words?)
This was what I was going for. Two drippers instead of one, that way more of the pot is watered. It's a Blumat "Halo" haha.
In theory, You water the media to the desired saturation point, install your blumats and run each "carrot" wide open for about 10 seconds, then adjust it down using the brown dial on the carrot until you see your output holding a drop of water like shown below. This system doesn't use electricity, it's pretty simple as long as you follow the directions, and saves time and water. I won't have to worry about watering my plants every day now, and can be at work stress free. (I do recommend being available for a couple days until you are SURE you have it dialed in. With adjustments, less is more. 1/2 a turn in 24 hours can be the difference between 5 gallons of nutes on the floor or too dry)
See that little drop of water? That's how you know when you've got your blumats properly adjusted.
Hope ya'll enjoyed my shit show tonight, Peace Og Fam!
