Automatic Sprinklers In A Nutshell.
Sprinkler Systems Explained In A Nutshell
Sprinkler Daddy's Sean Stefan explains in a
nutshell how an automatic underground sprinkler system is
installed. If you can visualize how an automatic sprinkler system
works, and what's involved in the process of installing an underground
sprinkler system, you might be able to think about installing a
sprinkler system yourself.
Tips from the video:
The first thing
you’ll want to do is start at the house.
The water comes outside through the lawn service taps and
you’ll need to screw that out and screw in the Sprinkler Daddy House
From the house connection, a pipe will run into the ground and into the
swivel manifold system. The
swivel manifold system branches off into the different zones in your
system, flowing through the automatic valves.
The valves need to be wired back to your sprinkler control timer using
multi-strand wire. One wire
from each valve plus the white ground wire from the multi-strand wire
gets connected together with a large waterproof wire connector.
The remaining strand on each valve gets paired up with a strand
from the multi-strand wire and connected with a small waterproof wire
multi-strand wire runs back to your control timer and you’ll match
each strand of the wire to a zone on the timer.
The ground wire also gets connected to the timer.
