With Stewart & Stewart Landscaping, your completely automated system is designed by a licensed Irrigation Specialist and consist of a Controller, a Backflow Preventer, In-line Valves, a Rain Sensor and three types of spray heads (Risers - Pop-up Sprays - Rotor/Impluse)
Controller Programmable watering time and days. Battery backup.
Backflow Preventer ‘U’ shaped device surrounded by insulation which allows water to flow in one direction, but does not allow flow in the reverse direction, thus preventing any contaminates from entering the potable water supply.
In-Line Valves Anti siphon valves set below soil level to distribute water to separate zones within the irrigated area. The number of zones is determined by the number of heads and the gallons per minute (b.p.m.) on each valve.
The Rain Sensor Device usually mounted on a riser near the valves. When enough moisture is detected, the device will shut off the system until adequately dried.
Risers Placed along foundation and planter areas. Designed to distribute spray over shrubs and plants in designated target area.
Pop-ups In ground sprays designed for smaller turf and planter areas and along sidewalks and walkways.
Rotors High volume heads used in larger turf areas with a gradual sweeping motion. Adjustable arc and radius.
The following ‘Adjustment Guide’ provides direction for maintaining and making basic adjustments to your system. Every system should be periodically checked the presence of potentially costly leaks and to ensure proper coverage.
