How many valves are in a jumbo box?
The Jumbo 117-BC Valve Box can comfortably fit a 4-Valve + 1 Manifold set. (Total: 5 Valves, depending on valve design).
How many valves can fit in a sprinkler box?
4 Valves in a VB12 The Valve Box 12 is the standard size for a household and will fit for most landscape projects.
Where should a sprinkler valve box be placed?
In newer lawn irrigation systems, the valves should be installed in valve boxes set into the earth. Often these are easily visible. In small yards, there is often a single valve box located near where the irrigation pipes enter the ground from the water source.
Can you run two sprinkler valves one zone?
DOUBLER will allow you to operate two sprinkler valves independently on one set of field wires . Add a new valve without trenching in new wire by connecting the new valve AND the nearest operating valve to the DOUBLER. The DOUBLER will operate both valves separately on one hot wire and the common.
How deep should lawn sprinkler pipes be buried?
The trenches will be relatively shallow, usually 6 to 12 inches deep, depending on your area’s freeze cycles and frost severity. The trench must also be deep enough to allow the sprinklers to retract underground to prevent breakage from lawn machines. Dig the trench by hand or rent a trencher (a real timesaver).
How do you increase gpm on a sprinkler system?
If you pump your own water from a well, stream, or pond the only way to increase your water flow is to install a newer and/or larger pump, larger pipe leading to and from it, and possibly drill a deeper well. You will need to see the Irrigation Pumping Systems Tutorial for details on how to do that.
Why does my sprinkler leak water when the system is turned off?
Control Valves A leaky valve typically arises due to a blockage in the mechanism that runs the valve. A blockage could also be an indication that the valve is worn out and requires replacement. You can spot leaky valves easily because water will continue flowing out of the sprinkler long after you’ve shut it off.
How high do sprinkler valves need to be?
These valves prevent the possibility of back siphoning of water from sprinkler lines into the drinking water. The anti-siphon valves must be installed at least 6 inches above the highest sprinkler or elevated piping in the circuit to meet most codes, (See Diagram 1). (Consult local building code.)
Can I wire two sprinkler valves together?
Yes, it is often possible to run two valves at once. However there are several problems that can occur. You must have a sufficient water supply for both valves to run at once. If the performance of the sprinklers suffers and you start seeing dry spots in the landscape, you obviously don’t have enough water.
What makes a rain bird valve box unique?
All Rain Bird Valve Boxes were engineered to maintain their horizontal and vertical integrity under load, even with the knock-outs removed. Other unique features include a bolt hole knock-out to help keep critters out of the box when the locking bolt isn’t used and a shovel access slot on the side of the box that makes it easy to remove the lid.
What are the sizes of the Jumbo valve boxes?
Super Jumbo Valve Box – Length: 33.1 inches (84.1 cm) x Width: 23.9 inches (60.7 cm) x Height: 15.0 inches (38.1 cm) Maxi Jumbo Valve Box – Length: 40.4 inches (102.5 cm) x Width: 27.1 inches (68.9 cm) x Height: 18.0 inches (45.7 cm)
Why are valve boxes important for irrigation systems?
When it comes to irrigation system installation and design, valve boxes play an important role, yet often aren’t given much thought. A well-designed valve box can make installations faster and easier while reducing the need for future maintenance.
What makes a good valve box?
A well-designed valve box can make installations faster and easier while reducing the need for future maintenance. Lids also have beveled edges that minimize the potential for damage from lawn equipment while allowing for easier hand and shovel access. Body is made from 100 percent recycled materials, making them earth-friendly and LEED compliant.
