Automatic Irrigation

Manual Systems

These systems are run off a tap supply and can create up to 24 zones. A average tap produces up to 15lts per minute, so each device required for your garden is calculated on how much water it uses and then creates a zone.(eg. 2 sprinklers using 7lts per minute each would create 1 zone) and the remainder of the garden is calculated to see how many zones would be required.

Each calculated zone requires a water feed each and is run back to the manifold. The zones can be controlled manually by a ball valve or automatically with a solenoid fitted and the wired into the controller.

Automatic Systems

The larger gardens will require the water pressure to be higher than the mains supply. In these cases a water tank fed from the water mains is used to store the water and a special pump is used to generate the higher pressures required to cover the larger areas and distances involved.

You have a few option on how your water is supplied, either the ever changing climates and water bans serious thought should be applied.

  • Water mains supply
  • Recycling Rain Water
  • Recycling your Domestic Water (Gray)
  • Ground Supply (Bore holes, Streams, Wells)

Pumped irrigation systems get more done in one go. An area requiring six pop-ups could also require six solenoid valves to control the water, when supplied by a garden tap, sending the water to each pop-up in turn. Pumping water from a storage tank offers the increased capacity to operate all six pop-ups together, via a single solenoid valve. The greater water availability created by the pump significantly reduces the number of solenoid valves required to manage the water efficiently.

The Storage tanks come in all sizes and are generally green or black and when positioned are not noticeable.

Within the tank we fit a pump which on average provide 70lts per minute at 4.5bar pressure. Which will then water your garden in Zones.

How do we fit the pipe work you ask..?

Automatic Sprinkler System Installation

1. We use a turf cutter to create the
run lines.

Cutting a trench hole for pipes.

2. We then trench a hole for our pipes.

Pipe and sprinklers being fitted.

3. The pipes and Sprinklers are Fitted.

Back filling in progress.

4. We back fill as we go.

Sprinklers working after installation.

5. 12 MP Rotator Sprinklers Working.

Lawn just 6 weeks after installation.

6. After Sprinklers have been in for
only 6 Weeks.

To Work Automatically

A Non Pressurised System

The controller can be located virtually anywhere away or close to the Tank & Pump .A power source is required, and from your controller we run irrigation cable in with the pipe to valve boxes where the solenoid valves are located which cover the different parts of the garden.

The pump is wired into the pump start relay and the controller so when the controller starts at its automated program it starts the pump up for the desired time set.

A pressurised System

All the fittings are the same apart from the tank which is normally a sited pump. This system is pressurized all the time so you could include Geka valves around the garden to connect a hose and the pump automatically starts upon water demand.
