Reticulation Repairs in Wangara
This week we were completing some reticulation repairs in Wangara for Clint who runs a commercial business.
Clint initially contacted us regarding poor coverage and dead spots on the front lawn and garden beds. He wanted some advice and repairs to improve water flow and coverage.
Upon arrival Adam and I noted some dead spots on the front verge lawn, along with a few poorly performing plants – upon testing the system a lot of the gear drive sprinklers weren’t operating adequately and two stations weren’t operating whatsoever.
Zero resistance was reaching stations 2 or 3, we utilized the Armada pro 800 valve locating wand to find and replace the solenoids with Irritrol 25mm BSP high flow valves.
We also suggested to Clint we move the valves to a separate location as they were in a high traffic area for trucks and utes, we moved them further away from the driveway using a new valve template made from scratch.
Upon testing the new valves we still weren’t entirely happy with the current sprinkler setup, we changed all the old gear drives to Hunter PGP gear drive pop up sprinklers, set and adjusted to cover both the front lawn and garden beds along with the Toro 570 series pop up sprinklers to a small piece of lawn around the letterbox.
Clint was delighted with the additional coverage and boosted water pressure with the new solenoids.
