How to Adjust the Controls on Your Sprinklers

Today I’m joined by John Brosh of Turfbuilder Irrigation Inc, to talk about a new control panel setup for your sprinkler system.

Today I’m joined by John Brosh, owner of Turfbuilder Irrigation Inc., and I wanted to go over a few questions that some homeowners have asked me about their sprinkler systems.

This year, there’s a new sprinkler control system that we wanted to go over with you. According to John, everything on the controller is pretty basic and easy to use. This control system comes with an automatic system that will run the sprinkler on the schedule that you set. Setting that schedule is easy and can be done from the same dial.

You’re able to set your start times and which days you want to water your lawn. We always recommend that you water your lawn in the morning so that it can dry throughout the day. You can also set the start times and how long you want each zone to run.

Because there are two types of sprinklers in your system, a rotor and a stationary head, you’re going to want to run each zone a little differently and for a different period of time.

 In order to adjust the rotors in your yard, all you need is a small screwdriver.

The other feature of this control panel that we wanted to show you is the manual station. You can manually start your sprinkler system during the off-season or when you need to cool down your soil during hotter summer days. The last feature of the system is an off-option, for days when there’s rain in the forecast and an extra watering isn’t needed.

While these are the basic controls, there are some add-ons that Turfbuilder Irrigation can provide you for a fee. These additional features include Wi-Fi and rain sensors.

In order to adjust the rotors in your yard, all you need is a small screwdriver. Each rotor has two stopping points: one on the left and one on the right. To find your left-handed stopping point, you turn the entire head until you have it where you need it.

Once you have it set, then you take a flathead screwdriver and turn the knob on the top of the rotor clockwise. The more you turn it, the bigger your radius will get. You can also use a screwdriver to adjust the spray pattern as well.
