The Fuse Message on Irritrol Kwikdial

Post Image

This is one of the most common reticulation issues especially in suburbs like Butler, Carramar, Banksia Grove and Clarkson where these controllers were installed as part of the landscaping package. The first thing you should know is that there is no fuse! And the little battery symbol with a line thru it doesn’t mean there […]

Joondalup Irrigation Control Box Installation

Post Image

? About 18 months ago I installed a Hunter X core at a property in Joondalup and in the last month or so it has stopped operating. I went to assess it and if necessary replace it under warranty. The panel had no display and there was no power coming from the transformer, so my guess […]

How to Add a Solenoid When Things are Tight

Post Image

Holidays started today and then I got a call… ‘Can you just come and wire up some solenoids for me? I haven’t a clue how these things work’. It was another landscaper but someone who wasn’t confident with retic. ‘Sure…’ I said. That’ll take 5 mins. And then I got there and discovered he was […]

Post Image

A little while back I reviewed the first model of the Hydrawise controller, an innovative new device that allows you to control your irrigation from desktop, android or iPhone app. The first offering was functional but not that pretty and fairly expensive. The team at Hydrawise have now released a couple of new models, done […]

Flow Control Solenoid Valves

Post Image

So what’s the difference between an ordinary solenoid valve and one with flow control?       Basically its the large ‘dial’ in the middle that you can turn to adjust the rate at which water flows thru the valve. You may choose to use one of these if you have a small station and […]

Only One Station Comes on?

Post Image

    This week I went to a property where there were 5 retic stations wired up, but only station 3 would come on. As with all these problems it is important to begin at the controller and follow wiring and piping from there. I put the controller on station 1 and tested for voltage. […]

Water Water Water

Any time lay lawn we will set your retic control box for you, but after that its up to you to make sure it is actually working. Different controllers respond differently to power outages and occasionally controllers can ‘die’, leaving you with no water. A recent turf installation we did in Brighton came close to […]
