The Ideal 5-Gallon Reservoir
Drip Irrigation & Blumat-Ready
This is the backyard or indoor bucket reservoir you've been looking for! We have done the hard work of installing two bulkheads, so you're ready to run tubing from the bucket to your drip system or blumat system.
8mm Bulkhead Nipples
The pre-installed bulkheads feature 8mm nipples, which is an ideal size for blumat systems, and very close to 1/4"--a standard size used for many drip systems.
Our food-grade plastic is an ideal choice of material for a water reservoir, especially when growing medicine and/or food!
Pre-Outfitted Reservoir Highlights
- Bulkheads already installed!
- No tools necessary to use
- Immediately ready for drip irrigation & Blumat systems
- Opaque plastic to discourage algae
- Bulkhead nipple barbs for 8mm tubing
- Lid Included
Gravity-Fed Drip Irrigation
About the Reservoir with Bulkhead and Lid for Drip Irrigation, Gravity Feed, & Blumats
Bulkheads are installed with nipples facing inward for shipping only. The bulkheads/spigots should be flipped around so that the nipples face outward for garden, horticultural, and hydroponic applications. These will work as reservoirs for blumat watering systems, can work in hydroponic bucket system(s), can replace hydroponic reservoir(s), and are essentially kits for water barrels with spigots! You certainly don't need to be DIY-friendly to use these buckets, as we do the work requiring elbow grease and tools to get the bulkheads installed. These will deliver water wherever you take your tubing! The bulkheads perfectly integrate to 8mm tubing. We would highly recommend our ultra-high quality and durable silicone super-flex tubing. This can be installed onto this bucket -- no tools required! It just slips over the nipples/barbs on the bulkheads that are pre-installed in the container. This 8mm tubing is the ideal size for blumats, and will slip right over the barbs on the 8mm x 3mm x 8mm Tees (included with each tropf blumat).
This bucket is really like hitting the "easy button" for blumat systems, hydroponic watering systems, backyard gardening applications, or just about any other application that you require a 5-gallon reservoir for. This is really like a water barrel spigot kit that has already been configured and assembled for you!

However, I had to leave town abruptly and couldn't get anyone to take care of my plants. I shelled out for this system as opposed to using traditional bulb watering spikes, and after less than 24 hours of calibration I had to depart to come back after 10 days, hoping my downstairs neighbors wouldn't have a leaky roof.. Low and behold the plants were THRIVING when I returned. The consistent delivery may even have been better than the hand feeding I had been doing. Being a gravity fed system, it was much easy to setup than a timed hydroponic system imo. Thanks for reading.
