RainBird PRS (Pressure Reducing Stem) Sprinklers contain a pressure reducing stem inside of the shaft of the sprinkler heads. This ensures even water flow and a reduction in mists and fog, which can evaporate. The use of these RainBird sprinkler heads can result in water conservation of up to 1 gallon of water per minute per sprinkler head. Additionally, Rainbird PRS Plus Sprinklers contain an internal check valve that prevents low head drainage from low spots, such as the bottom of a hill.

This RainBird water smart irrigation product helps improve water efficiency by preventing overwatering. For More information on the WR2 Rain Sensor visit the RainBird website or contact us today.

Rainbird ESP Smart Controller

Rainbird Rain Sensor | Water Smart Sprinker System

The ESP Smart Controller is an advanced sprinkler system control device that uses a rain sensor and a temperature gauge to compute the evapotranspiration rate at any given time. This rate helps determine how quickly water evaporates and how much water is needed for plant life. When setting up this system, we will program each zone based on factors like what type of grass you have, how much sun/shade exists, how much slope exists, what type of soil is present, etc. The smart controller can then water as needed even when the atmosphere changes.

Ultimately, this RainBird water smart irrigation product takes all of the guesswork out of programming your controller. As a result, this gives extremely accurate control over how much your lawn is watered. This water smart irrigation product allows your system to use water most efficiently while ensuring the best conditions for your lawn and landscape. For more information on the smart controller visit the RainBird website or contact us.

Rainbird Master Valve

Rainbird Master Valve | Water Smart Sprinker System

Once we connect to your main water supply, the water flows through your backflow prevention device and continues into a main PVC supply line that is installed in your yard. The manual valve is then turned on at the water supply, and your main PVC supply line fills with water putting it under constant pressure at all times.

The water that is in the main PVC line is under static water pressure at 60-100PSI. So if there were to be a leak in that main PVC line or a damaged pipe, water would continually run out of the pipe at over 20 Gallons per Minute, until the system was manually shut off at the water supply.

With a Master Valve Installed on your system, your main PVC supply line is no longer under constant water pressure. Therefore, it won’t continuously leak at 20 gallons per minute in the case of a damaged pipe. Instead, the water is only released into the main supply line when the Master Valve opens up after receiving a signal from your controller.

Overall, the Master Valve prevents your main PVC supply line from being under static water pressure at all times. Additionally by installing this extra valve at the head of your system, you will reduce the stress on your valves and connections ultimately lengthening the life of your system and its components.
