Valves are used to automatically open and shut the water supply to different zones of your garden and are turned on and off with an electric signal. We use one valve to delimit each watering zone within your irrigation system.
We prefer to use Hunter heavy-duty valves because these are among the most reliable and durable on the market and are particular appropriate for commercial irrigation installations where reliable and continuous performance is essential.
Timer / Controller
Timers and controller mechanisms are important for regulating the amount of water that is used each time the system turns on.
You can set your irrigation systems to turn on at night when less water will be lost to evaporation. At the same time we use soil water sensors and other control mechanisms that only activate the system when irrigation is actually needed – in other words your irrigation system will adjust automatically for seasonal changes in watering needs.
Pop-Up Rotary Sprinklers
Pop-Up Rotary Sprinklers rotate between 0°-360°and can be adjusted for water flow and distance. This makes them perfect for watering medium and larger areas.
Pop-Up Sprays are stationary sprinklers without any rotation and so are usually used in garden beds or small lawn areas. Each Pop-Up Spray can water from 0° to 360° and far as 2 feet to 24 feet.
Micro-Irrigation Systems are low-pressure irrigators that feed water through thin hoses to spray, mist, sprinkle or drip water into your pots, planters, hanging baskets and smaller garden areas.
The Valve Box is buried underground box and prevents the valves from coming into contact with water and dirt. The Valve Box contains the electrical wire connections and effectively serves as a manual electrical service center for your entire system.
Backflow devices prevent water from siphoning back into your drinking-water system.
Irrigation pipes are made out of vinyl and are buried a few inches underground to carry water to all parts of your sprinkler, drip, spray or mist irrigation systems.
Water Pressure (P.S.I.) and Flow Rate (G.P.M)
P.S.I. (Pound per Square Inch) is a unit that shows the water pressure when it comes out of your house.
G.P.M (Gallons Per Minute) is a unit that shows the water flow rate.
We use both these measurements to calculate how many zones/stations and the number of drip, spray, sprinkler or misting heads your system can effectively support.
Station / Zone
A sprinkler system on a property is divided into different stations or zones. Each station waters a different area of your property and can be independently programmed to water as needed.
