Reticulation Repairs in Sorrento
This week we were completing some reticulation repairs in Sorrento for Leon.
He was finding that due to a recent power outage in the area his controller unit had set off the irrigation and his station one of the sprinklers wouldn’t shut off. Luckily enough for Leon we could get out there that afternoon to help with the situation.
With the Hunter X-cores, as was with the case with this particular job, they are renowned for what’s called fusion in the circuit board when a surge of power enters the controller just prior to a blackout. If the controller is hardwired through an RCD (majority of the time in with the lights RCD in the main switchboard) it can be prevented however this wasn’t the case for Leon.
As a preferred Rainbird installer, we changed the Hunter X-core over to a Rainbird ESP-TM2 6 station controller. We also provided Leon with a cause of damage report for his insurance, making it that much easier to process the claim on his new controller unit.
We replaced half a dozen pop up sprinklers in Leon’s front lawn also, as we noticed on the system test there was extremely poor coverage and the lawn had quite significant dry patches in certain areas.
Leon was certainly happy he didn’t have to leave his mains turned off for any longer than a day, and was delighted with his new reticulation controller unit and repairs.
