Reticulation Repairs in Beldon
Last week we were completing some reticulation repairs in Beldon for Jesse.
Jesse was finding that when he tried to operate his reticulation system, either on manual override or on the automatic programming, nothing would work.
Adam and I were quick to diagnose the fault as being the reticulation controller itself, the old controller unit was at least 15 years old Jesse was explaining so it had most definitely served its purpose.
We suggested installing a new Rainbird TM2 6 station with the option of an additional WIFI module, these reticulation controllers are second to none on the market for ease of use for the homeowner along with the additional benefit of being incredibly durable.
The optional WIFI module comes in handy for FIFO workers or anyone who requires to operate the reticulation anywhere in the world with internet connection.
Upon testing the new system, we noticed that all stations were running as they should however station 5 that did the rear vegetable patch and fruit trees wasn’t functioning. A quick resistance test found that the coil on that particular solenoid was completely ‘burnt out’, in these cases we replace the whole solenoid valve itself as once the coil is faulty the diaphragm of the valve generally follows.
A few other minor reticulation repairs and sprinkler fixes and Jesse’s system was back up and running for the remainder of Perth’s hot summer months.
