The RBC8000 battery operated timer is mounted on a 3/4” anti-siphon valve. An anti-siphon valve, frequently required on outdoor irrigation systems, is a directional valve that allows water to flow in only one direction and prevents irrigation water from 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. The timer has a 3/4” inlet and outlet with female pipe thread so it can be installed directly onto 3/4” PVC male pipe thread as part of a drip irrigation or sprinkler system valve manifold or as a stand-alone unit.
Install the timer at least six inches above the highest sprinkler or elevated line within the zone.
The timer has seven buttons with the center four buttons (left, right, up, and down arrows) used to select or modify a program parameter, and a large button in the center to accept the parameter change and move or skip to the next step or icon. The right upper button is used for manual on/off and the upper left button is used for program off or to stop irrigation.
Seven buttons with the center four buttons (left, right, up, and down arrows) are used to select or modify a program parameter. A large button accepts the parameter change and moves or skips to the next step or icon. The upper right button manually powers the timer on or off while the upper left button is used to stop irrigation.
Make sure to install the valve with the flow direction arrow engraved on the side pointed away from the water source, and with the solenoid on the outlet side of (downstream from) the valve.
Recommendations: Wrap all male pipe thread fittings with Teflon tape. Do not use pipe cement on the valve as it will damage the valve and void the warranty.
