There are only a few steps more to complete. Soon enough your garden and flower beds will not only have enough water for vegetables to grow but the system will also be timed. Although with all the rain we have had in Ottawa you may not use your sprinkler very much this summer.
There are a few more items to purchase before your system is complete.
- Valves are a must and typically are grouped into Globe valves or anti-siphon valves. They control the flow of water into each zone. With an anti-siphon valve you do not need a back flow preventer. Scott chose the globe valve as it can be installed underground in a valve box.
- A controller is also necessary and can be purchased through Hunter or Rainbird. Some controllers are expandable so that more zones can be added to them. You can also purchase “smart” controllers that are connected to the internet.
