Haste to stop waste!

Too often we let our irrigation systems go on without really making sure that the amount of water, the pressure, the radius and other settings are what our lawn or landscape needs.
This causes not only a great waste of water and money but it may also ruin our flowers and plants.
Therefore here are a few tips to transform a wasteful sprinkler irrigation into the effective system it should be, and to keep a healthy landscape, lawn or garden.

1. When to water.
Watering your lawn and landscape should be differentiated according to seasons.
During warm months (May to October) irrigation should be activated between midnight and sunrise, so to minimize the water that evaporates.
While during winter, plants and lawns should be watered during the warmer part of the day to prevent water from freezing on the landscape.

2. Don't drown your plants.
Keep an eye on your lawn while the sprinklers are on and monitor when the water starts dripping off the sides. This way you will know how long your sprinklers should be left active for, so that the plants may absorb the water without being overwhelmed.

3. Avoid daily, light watering.

4. When watering plants with deep roots, water well and deep, until about half inch deeper than the deepest roots, in order to encourage downward growth.

5. When watering on a slope do it gradually. Run your sprinklers every 3 hours circa and aerate to increase infiltration.

6. Check your sprinkler's efficiency once a month.
Check for damaged, leaking, clogged or stuck sprinkler heads and for constantly soaked patches of grass or soil to detect leakage.
Make sure that the water is sprayed all over the area and that new additions or plants that grew higher and larger don't block the spray pattern.

7. In seasons in which the temperature reaches 30/32 degrees Celsius remember to run your sprinklers 5 to 10 minutes in the afternoon to cool the area. It reduces the symptoms of summer patch disease.

8. Create water zones by putting together the plants that have similar water needs, and water them accordingly

9. Be careful when mowing. If your sprinkle heads don't retract underground after irrigation, apply small flags on them so that while mowing you see them better and avoid damaging them.

We have had it for 2 years and it just stopped turning on. I have tried reprogramming battery good what else can I do?

Pull the dial toward you.
Line up the correct time of day to the arrow.
This may help in the event that the power went out at some point.
When that happens,
it changes the time when your lights turn on & off.

How do I winterize my sprinkler system

Turn off the water supply to the sprinklers system.
Connect a compressor to the system and blow out the individual zones, one at a time.
You can have this done for you for about $75.00 if you are without a compressor or are unsure of the procedure.
Doing it incorrectly will destroy the underground pipes as the water will crack the pipes.

Wiring new sprinkler timer one wire on my old

Just cut the common wire and put one end in each of the 2 pins. The rain sensor just interrupts the signal to the valves when wet.

Bought a new home and need a manual for our imperial valet sprinkler system

I'm a sprinkler contractor and as far as I know that controller has not been manufactured for many years. Set the small dials for the time that you want each zone to run. Set pins on days you want to water. Set a pin on the start time for the cycle that includes all zones. Set the time and day and hope all of the motors work.
Any other questions, let me know.

How to turn kill switch off and see manual and instructions

I am assuming that you want to disable the system temporarily by putting it in valet mode. You will need to locate the valet button; they are usually installed under the dash within reach of the driver. The button should be black and about 1/2" in diameter.
Pressing and holding the button for 3 seconds while the alarm is disarmed will put the system into valet mode. The system will turn the LED light on steady and chirp the siren to indicate that valet mode has been activated. To exit valet mode, press and release the button. The LED will turn off and the siren will chirp to indicate that you have exited valet mode.

The included link is for the manual, see page 8.
