Sprinkler System Components

Timer - controls how long, what time and what days your system waters each zone.

Sprinkler timer and wiring

Shutoff valve - stops the supply water from going to any piping down-stream from the shutoff valve.

Backflow preventer - click here for information.

Backflow prevention devices

Zone valve - controls how much water flows to the specified zone. Your controller opens your zone valve as it's programed to, which allows water to run through your system and supply that particular zone's sprinkler heads with water.

Sprinkler zone valves

Sprinkler heads - desperse water from your system's pipes to the desired landscape. There are two main types of heads - spray and rotary. Spray heads shoot a constant spray of water in an isolated direction. Rotary heads shoot a stream of water and pivote to spray in different directions.

Spray and rotary sprinkler heads

Drip zone - an adjustable, low output system designed to meet the needs of individual plants and small areas. These are often used to water potted plants and gardens.

Drip irrigation

Drains - allow stagnant water in system to drain out. This helps protect against freezing. To fully protect your system, a blow-out is necessary (see above for service prices).
