Reticulation Repairs in Innaloo
The team at Ryan’s Reticulation is back in full swing after the Christmas break, and this week was a busy one completing reticulation repairs in Innaloo for Darryl.
Darryl’s job was one of the most tedious we have had to complete for a while now, not only did he require a new reticulation controller but none of the solenoids in the back garden or lawn had any resistance or lectrical readings. We definitely had our work cut out for us.
Adam and I installed a new Rainbird TM2 controller initially, we then went on to locate the solenoids in the back garden with the Armada Pro 800 valve locating tool. Thankfully we could locate the solenoids relatively easily however this wasn’t where the problem was located – somewhere between the solenoids and the new reticulation controller was a cut common wire.
Utilizing the valve locating wand again we can send an electrical current down the common wire to trace where the signal stops, the wand picks up the signal until there is a cut or a break in the cable.
We located the cut wire underneath a medium sized shrub, where the roots had grown throw the conduit and split the cable. A bit of skill is required and experience with the wand to do it this way, not to mention a bit of sheer luck as well!
A long day but Darryl’s retic was back up and running at peak performance for the rest of the long, hot summer ahead.
