Add-A-Zone

Part #: RCO 860009

Two valves on only one wire: Let Add-A-Zone solve your irrigation problems!

Work around broken zone wires.  Add a new zone without adding new wiring.  Add-A-Zone is the proven way to independently control two zone valves with only one pair of field wires. 

Unlike other “switching” units, the Add-A-Zone behaves just like the valves are fully independent.  A patented unit installed at the controller allows use of two separate zones, while sending the signal through only one field wire.

Splitter

Part #: RCO 860011

Operate multiple valves from a single pair of control wires on a single controller station.

You simply program the controller zone for the total amount of run time required by all valves connected to the Splitter unit. The Splitter will divide the programmed time evenly among each zone.

The Splitter will save you time and labor trenching in additional wiring or in locating faults. The waterproof unit can be directly buried anywhere that is convenient. Plus, no electrical modifications to the controller are required.

Polar Parka

 

Unsurpassed Backflow Preventer Protection

A backflow device is an important investment that needs to be protected. 

Up until now, there was no effective way to protect these devices from the elements and from tampering.  Attempts to protect backflow preventers from freeze damage using burlap, tape or plastic create an environmental eyesore and fail to adequately protect the device.

Presenting Polar Parka, a four-season insulated backflow cover that protects your backflow preventer year-round.

  • Winter:  provides protection in cold-weather conditions.
  • Spring:  sudden temperature changes can require “re-winterization” of many systems.  Polar Parka protects the device.
  • Summer:  protects device from damaging UV rays.

Features of all Polar Parka covers:

  • Rugged 18 oz fabric, vinyl coated for water resistance
  • Double-stitched construction
  • Polar insulation, polyester fiber
  • Waterproof / fire resistant
  • 1 Year Warranty 

Always measure your device or contact The Source for exact sizing information. Many model dimensions and styles have changed through the years, so exact measurements will be most precise.

Battery Zone

Part #: B2-100

No power? No problem! Battery Zone easily upgrades a solenoid valve to automatic control

Installing new irrigation or adding a valve in a place where power isn't easily accessed? Battery Zone is the easy solution that provides economical battery-powered control of standard irrigation solenoid valves. No need to run new power wires through the landscape. The Battery-Zone is also ideal for retrofitting manual systems to automatic operation, or working around existing bad wiring.

The Battery Zone installs quickly: just thread off the existing solenoid, and then thread on the solenoid from the Battery Zone. Adapters are provided to fit popular brands. The Battery Zone uses two standard 9-volt alkaline batteries to power the controller's display and to actuate automatic and manual cycles. In a typical application, the battery will last for at least one full irrigation season. Use of off-the-shelf 9-volt lithium batteries is optional and would extend the normal battery life to multiple seasons.

Features & Benefits

  • Fully submersible and waterproof, ideal for installation in humid valve boxes. Meets IP68.
  • A protective rubber cap prevents debris from accumulating on the face and buttons
  • Includes 9 volt latching solenoid compatible with popular brands of valves including Irritrol ®, Lawn Genie ®, Hardie ® Toro ®, K-Rain ®, Nelson ®, Orbit ®, and Rain Bird ®. For use with other brands of valves, you'll need to purchase a 9-volt DC latching solenoid from that brand which can then be connected to the Battery Zone controller. The Battery Zone only operates 9 volt dc latching solenoids, do not attempt to connect to standard 24 volt ac solenoids.
  • Simple programming: choose days of the week, enter start time and zone run time. Up to 2 starts per day.
  • Drip irrigation compatible: run time from 1 to 360 minutes.
  • Easy manual operation.
