Reticulation Repairs in Warwick
Earlier in the week we were completing some reticulation repairs in Warwick for Stephen, who had recently purchased a new semi-detached duplex.
Although the house wasn’t particularly old, the system itself had unfortunately been poorly designed and installed. The controller unit, a Hunter X Core, wasn’t functional due to the dial being unable to operate – an all too common fault of the older Hunter controllers.
We suggested a new controller and as preferred Rainbird installers, it was hard to go past the ESP – TM2 4 station with the additional WIFI module. These reticulation controllers are second to none in the irrigation industry due to their reliability, durability, ease of use for the homeowner along with being simple to program with the ‘set & forget’ rules definitely applying!
Along with the controller, we noticed Stephen’s master solenoid was showing extremely poor electronic readings with the Armada solenoid testing kit. Upon inspection we noticed that the original master solenoid was a cheap and nasty local hardware special – a recipe for disaster and are one of our most common call outs. As with everything else in life, you get what you pay for and reticulation is no exception.
We replaced the original master solenoid with a 25mm Irritrol BSP Hi-Flow solenoid valve, and Stephen's system was back up and running again with optimal water flow and coverage.
We informed Stephen that his other 4 station solenoids were also of the lesser quality brands and to keep an eye on them for low water pressure or any particular station not operating.
