The general instructions provided in this guide are for systems and components commonly used in residential landscapes but do not necessarily apply to all types of systems and components. Read and follow any instructions that come with your irrigation system components and contact your salesperson if you need advice. Construction drawings for the major irrigation system components shown below serve as a guide during the installation process.
- Review your irrigation system plan thoroughly to get reacquainted with the plan and its components. Also, reread the section of this guide that pertains to developing an irrigation system plan. A short refresher course now may save time and effort later.
- Take your plan to an irrigation supply store and ask for help with selecting the equipment. Take this guide along to show them the construction details for the backflow preventer and irrigation valves.
- If possible, purchase all of the irrigation system components at the same time. Don't forget smaller items like pipe cutters, TeflonTM tape, primer, glue and temporary marking paint.
