Understanding Your Sprinkler System’s Basic Components
The controller serves as the brain of your sprinkler system’s operation, as it tells the control valves when and how long to supply water to the sprinklers.
Each station-control valve controls a specific group of sprinklers referred to as a watering station. These stations are typically laid out and installed according to the type of plant that will be watered, the location of the plant within your landscape and the maximum amount of water that can be supplied. Each valve is connected to a numbered terminal within the controller, identifying it as Station 1, Station 2, etc.
Your controller operates the station-control valves in order, one at a time. One station waters completely before another station turns on. This is referred to as a watering cycle. The information stored in your controller’s memory that determines when and how long each station will water is called a program.
Sprinklers direct and control the amount of water applied to your lawns and plants.
