How the Systems Works
Water is piped from the water main into a holding tank then pumped by a pressure pump, usually 2hp (1.5Kw) single phase, into a ‘ring main’ of polyethylene pipe round the green. Eight high capacity pop-up sprinklers are installed around the green.
The control valves, which are linked to the controller by 0.8mm low voltage cable laid with the pipe. Normally closed, the valves are opened by the controller for an individually pre-determined time, allowing each sprinkler to operate individually.
The controller has three independent programs with 4 start times per program for a total of up to 12 start times per day. Watering times shall be available from 1 to 99 minutes in 1-minute increments per station. Controller has a weekly 7-day calendar or a 1 - 31 days interval watering, that allows user to choose day(s) of week for desired watering. Operation shall be available in automatic, semi-automatic and manual modes. Battery back-up shall retain the time when there is power cuts.
All programming shall be accomplished by use of a programming dial and selection buttons with user feedback provided by a LCD display.
Electric requirements are two 13 amp plug sockets.
Pump comes pre-assembled ready to connect suction to the tank and discharge to PE pipe.
