Why Use Battery Zone

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.
