What is the Best Type of Sprinkler?

A lot of people ask me what the best sprinklers are, and the answer is that it depends on the job it needs to do. Here are some pros and cons of various types of sprinklers: Standard Toro/Rainbird pop-ups:  are good sprinklers in that distribute a lot of water in a short space of time and they are cheap and easy to replace. If well maintained the sprinkler body and seals can easily last 5 years. Their negative is that their spray can mist and get easily blown by the wind. Gear Drives – Gear drives are tough and are generally used […]

Hunter X Core Irrigation Controller Repairs

People often ask me if they can have a controller repaired and almost without exception the answer is no – if they are faulty then they are a throwaway. Its not that its impossible, but once you have paid for a call out to remove the controller ($75+ GST) and paid a technician to fault find (around $150) and then paid for it to be reinstalled ($75+GST) you’re up to $300.00 and there is no warranty. With a new controller around $385 it just doesn’t make sense. (Sadly because I’d rather recycle than create more junk.) Recently someone asked about […]

Warranties on Control Boxes

So your control box has stopped working? Chances are it will be covered by warranty as most have two years of factory warranty and if a product simply fails we will replace it at no cost to you. However sometimes boxes fail as a result of user error. The box in the image is just over one year old and ordinarily would be replaced under warranty, except that it is evident that the digital panel has been exposed to the weather. The telltale sign is the greenish colour the panel has turned. It should be the same grey as the […]

How Long Should My Sprinklers Be on For?

This is not what you want your lawn to look like! Currently the Water Authority is advertising on TV that sprinklers should be on for 10 minutes per station, which is somewhat misleading. I had a client recently send me this photo of her new lawn saying she is struggling to keep it alive on the Water Authority’s recommendations. I’m not surprised. She has Toro Precision nozzles which need to run for 30 minutes each time operate to apply 10mls. So here’s the deal… Sprinkler run times depend on the types of sprinklers used.   The goal is to get […]
