Sure – this is Hunter propaganda, but in my experience MPs have proven themselves to be top quality nozzles over time. It is not uncommon for me to return to a house I installed MP rotators in after 3-4 years and see them performing as well as the day we installed them.
For people with Hunter X Core Controllers this is one of the most common issues and it arises because the controller is incorrectly programmed.
What happens is the system comes on at 5.00am (or whenever you have set it for) runs thru the whole cycle and then does it again… and again… and again…
The problem is more than one identical start time being set.
By that I mean that start time 1 is 5.00am, start time 2 is 5.00am and then start time 3 is 5.00am. For some reason this confuses the machine and causes it behave in this way.
The reality is you only need one start time to run a program, so if you have this issue then ensure you only have one time set.
Its that time of year when you switch reticulation back on so its likely you’ll be looking for someone to service your sprinklers and get it all up to speed for what looks like being a long hot summer.
So give us a call on 0400044236 and we will book a time to get everything working as it should be, set your controller and ensure you are ready for summer.
So what do you do when your dad is a retic bloke and its a beautiful day outside?…
Grab some black poly pipe, some black plastic and some microsprays and create a water slide… Nice work kids
A couple of years back Brighton Reticulation moved from Butler to Yanchep and now we are available to all residents for spring servicing and general repairs.

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 do not want you retic operating at full capacity.
For example some people have a small veggie patch that needs some very specific watering. Rather than adding the veggies patch to the lawn station or to other garden beds they would irrigate it separately. In that instance it may be necessary to reduce the flow and use this type of valve.
Any alternative is to use an inline tap to reduce to flow.
If you live in Western Australia then June 1st is the day when all sprinklers get switched off for the next 3 months. Simply turn the dial on your controller to ‘off’ and come back in September to turn it on again. Between now and then there should be enough rain to see you through and keep your lawn and garden healthy.
This restriction doesn’t apply to new lawns which can still receive a watering exemption while they are being established.
If you aren’t sure what to do just give me a call and I’ll help you out – no cost
