Target 60 Water Plan

Posted on 2nd May 2011 in Local Knowledge

 

Its common knowledge that this was our hottest driest summer ever and there is a lot of water to be saved if we are to make up ground.

Aside from just hoping for a wet winter we can take some positive action by modifying the way in which we use water. To check out the Water Authorities Target 60 plan click on the link below.

Low Water Pressure in Jindowie?

I’ve only done a couple of jobs in the new Yanchep estate of Jindowie, but what is most noticeable about this area is the very low water pressure.

I have no idea why the pressure is so poor, but I do know that at 15l/min you need to think carefully about how you go about things. Inevitably you will need to break your system into more stations and think about using drippers, miniscape and MP rotators rather than the stock standard pop-ups and microsprays.

If you are doing some DIY retic in Jindowie and wondering why your system is struggling then that could be the reason.

Jindalee Reticulation & Turf

Posted on 2nd May 2011 in Installations, Installing

If you live in Jindalee then you live on a pile of beach sand!

Its a beautiful spot to build a home, but before you can expect to have any joy with a new lawn you will need to make sure you excavate some of the powdery beachsand and bring in some good quality landscape mix.

Ideally you would bring in 40-6ml, but obviously your budget is going to be a determining factor and a minimum of 20ml is what you should put down.

Digging in Jindalee is a mixed bag. Parts of it are soft and easy going while other parts are full of limestone.

You won’t know what you will find until you start!

How To Wire a Solenoid

Posted on 2nd May 2011 in Installing, Repairs

Solenoids have two wires and it doesn’t matter which one goes where.

One is the common wire and the other is the power wire. You simply need to make sure that the wire coming from the control box terminal goes to one solenoid wire and the common wire goes to the other (as well as the other solenoids).

If you want to know how to wire a whole system then check this post
