The Single Station Battery Operated Controller with LCD Display and 3/4″ Anti-siphon Valve is recommended for use with drip irrigation or sprinkler systems. An anti-siphon valve is frequently required on outdoor irrigation systems. It is a directional valve that allows water to flow in only one direction and prevents irrigation water from returning back or back siphoning to the drinking water supply line, preventing contamination of the water supply. It is open to the atmosphere when there is reduced or no pressure in the line.
Install the 2008 battery operated controller with anti-siphon valve at least six inches above the highest sprinkler or elevated line within the station.
We recommend using this controller with drip irrigation, sprinkler systems or any other watering application that requires a one way directional valve with more than 1 gallon per minute (GPM) or 60 GPH.
|2008i||Single Station Battery Operated Controller with 3/4 in. Anti-Siphon Valve
This battery operated controller with ¾” inlet and outlet with female pipe thread should be installed a minimum of 6” above the highest sprinkler onto a 3/4” PVC male pipe thread fitting or riser as part of your drip irrigation or sprinkler system valve manifold, or as a stand-alone unit. Make sure that the flow direction arrow engraved on the side of the controller is pointed away from the water source.
Recommendations: Wrap all fittings with TEFLON tape. Do not use pipe cement (solvent) or pipe dope on the valve as it will damage the valve thread and void the warranty. Do not over tighten.
Programing: To program the controller use the six programming buttons with the four upper buttons used for programming, the button on the lower left used for manual on/off and the button on the lower right used for rain off or to stop irrigation when it is raining
This battery operated controller requires one 9 volt battery (alkaline battery recommended)
