How Long Should I Run My Sprinklers?

A common misconception is that retic should run for 10 minutes. NOT SO! You are allowed to apply 10mls of water on your watering day. This is where the confusion comes from. 10ml not 10min! So different nozzles require different run times. Normal Toro – 10-15 minutes MP Rotators – 45-60 minutes Gear drives – 20-40 minutes (The difference is related to the spacing between the sprinklers.) But don’t buy the 10 minutes thing!

Preparation to Lay Turf

Like everything in life, the preparation matters! When laying turf it matters to: – get a good thick layer of quality soil – ensure your retic covers all areas – screed the ground to dead level – spread fertiliser – water the ground Then lay turf… If you do all of the above you can expect an excellent result. If not then it may turn out lumpy or it may not have the same vigorous start that new lawn needs

The Irritrol Kiwdial Fuse Issue

Ok – possibly the single most common issue I hit each year is this problem. First up – there is no fuse and no battery in the controller! Silly I know – to have a ‘fuse’ message and a battery symbol at the same time. The average DIY would look for a dodgy fuse or a faulty battery. What the message actually means is that there is either a fault in the controller or a fault in a solenoid. The way to determine the issue is simply to remove wires and keep resetting the controller and testing it. If it […]

Why You NEED a Retic Bloke!

Why should you get a retic bloke in to fix your sprinklers? Let me tell you a story of today’s DIY mishap… Retic is just like plumbing right? Yeah that’s what I reckoned… So we needed to change over the taps and spout in our ensuite and I figured ‘it can’t be that hard – I’ll just do it myself.’ I removed the old spout, taps and shrouds without much drama and began to install the new spout. It was a tight fit – really tight – I could hardly get it on. But with some very careful manoeuvring I […]

How to Add a Solenoid in a Tight Fitting Space

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 in over his head. The pic above is the existing set up. You can see a master valve (left) and the two station valves. I expected to just be wiring up a new solenoid, but he couldn’t figure out how to get a new solenoid […]
