Did you know?: Sprinklers
PROBLEM: Watering Slopes or Hills Water can puddle or pool around sprinklers installed at the bottom of slopes or hills, causing soggy areas, which can kill grass or encourage fungus to grow.
Specific Sprayers with seals, Rotors and Check Valve stops can fix the problem of low head drainage and eliminate puddling. Or use Rotary Nozzles which deliver water at a lower rate, allowing sufficient soak-in time to prevent run-off.
High or fluctuating water pressure can cause sprinklers to mist or fog, in this case water is not delivered to your lawn and garden at the optimal rate. A low water-pressure situation can also affect your sprinklers’ performance, leading to areas that do not get proper water coverage.
High water pressure can be efficiently controlled at the valve using a valve pressure regulator. At the point of distribution, excessive pressure can be controlled using specific Spray Rotors with a Pressure Regulating Stem (PRS). For low-volume drip systems, install Inline or Anti-Siphon Drip Control Zone Kits with a pressure regulator.
PROBLEM: Sprinklers Turn On During Rainy Weather
Your system’s watering schedule starts when it is already raining.
SOLUTION: A Rain Sensor automatically monitors weather conditions and efficiently signals the controller to turn the system off when it rains, saving water and saving you money.
