Automatically maintain reservoir nutrient and pH levels

Create the optimal conditions for nutrient uptake

The Bluelab PeriPod L3 will maintain stable pH and nutrient levels in your reservoir, ensuring optimal nutrient availability for your plants at all times. Your PeriPod responds to triggers received from the Bluelab Pro Controller, dosing pH adjusters and nutrient stock solutions into your reservoir to achieve optimal conditions for nutrient uptake.

Since there’s no need for spot checks or manual adjustments, the Bluelab PeriPod L3 saves you time and labour so that you can focus on growing healthier plants every single time.

When you pair your controller with high-precision Bluelab PeriPod dosers, you’ll have a complete nutrient dosing system.

Long-lasting precision 

Fine-tune your reservoir pH and nutrient

The Bluelab PeriPod M3 features highly accurate medical-grade peristaltic pumps, making precision easier and more achievable than ever before.

Not only will the Bluelab PeriPod M3 allow you to manage parameter increments down to 0.1 pH and 0.1 EC, your pumps can be user-calibrated to the viscosity of the liquid being dosed, ensuring a consistent flow rate at all times.

In addition, your PeriPod’s pump tubes and cassettes are replaceable, providing long-lasting accuracy and saving you money in the long run.

Bluelab PeriPods are available in three different sizes; simply choose the correct pump size for your growing setup needs.

Customise your dosing system

Deliver a complex nutrient programme at the touch of a button

When you combine your PeriPod with the Bluelab Pro Controller, you can customise your dosing setup by linking up to three PeriPods of the same series (M- or L-series), enabling you to deliver a multi-part nutrient programme.

Through our Connect software, you can also set your feed schedule, giving you the power to maintain your nutrient programme at the touch of a button.

Built for growers

All our products are designed with growers, for growers – so you can be confident that the Bluelab PeriPod will help you carry out the essential tasks of everyday growing with ease. Designed and assembled in New Zealand from local and imported components.

Control your key parameters 24/7 

Team up with the Bluelab Pro Controller

This PeriPod has been designed to be paired with the Bluelab Pro Controller. This controller automatically monitors your parameters and sends signals to your PeriPod to the adjust pH and nutrient levels in your reservoir.

After all, when you keep your parameters steady, you’ll end up with healthier plants, improving both yield and quality.

You can also add the Bluelab External Lockout and Alarm Box to ensure that your dosing system is always working optimally or a Bluelab Sample Pot if your reservoir is located more than two metres/6.5 feet away from your Pro Controller.

As a guide, Bluelab recommends the following maximum concentration for commonly used acids and alkalines;

Peristaltic Pump tubing (PharMed BPT)
Nitric Acid <35%, Phosphoric Acid <85%, Sulfuric Acid <30%, Citric Acid <60%, Potassium Hydroxide <60%, Potassium Carbonate Concentrated, Potassium Silicate <60%.

The chemical concentrations stated above are a guide. Variations in temperature, pressure, or UV exposure may cause tubing failure which could lead to serious injury if proper safety precautions are not followed. For this reason, it is recommended that the tubing be tested with the desired chemical in the specific application to determine suitability. No warranty (neither express or implied) is given that the information in these tables is accurate or complete or that any material is suitable for any purpose.
