Frequently Asked Questions...

Will my Hunter SVC VALVE will work with my Lawn Genie Valve?

my Hunter SVC VALVE will not work with my Lawn Genie Valve. Is this becaous the voltage is not matched? Hunter says it operates solenoids at 6-9 v DC // Lawn Genie says it is an 18 v DC solenoid. :-( my original Hunter Valve broke and I replaced it with the Lawn Genie. Should I get a Hunter Valve , or a Lawn Genie Controller at this point/ or is there something I have overlooked?.


Answer:

Something is incorrect. All valve solenoids and all timers are designed to work at 24 v DC It should make no difference which brand of clock or which brand of valve you are using. Now the actual solenoid which is the circular cylinder with the wires coming out of it that screws into the valve may not fit all brands of valves but you can buy the correct brand to fit your valve at any irrigation supplier. If your controller is working with at least one valve it should work with any valve you have installed. I would look at the wiring and see that they are correctly installed and connected especially at the valve. If one of the two wires is loose or connected wrong then you wont get the valve to operate. If you have a voltage meter I would test it with that. If not make sure at least one wire from each valve is connected to the white (or nuetral wire) out of the controller and the other valve wire is connected to one of the hot wires coming out of the controller. If one valve does not work try connecting a hot wire off a working valve to the non working valve and test it. If it works your problem is in the wire you disconnected. I constantly work on sprinkler systems and wiring is no. one problem. Incidently I cant find a SVC valve listed in the Hunter catalog did you get the letters mixed up?

Lawn Dethatching - Basic Tips To Help Keep Your Thatch Controlled

If you're curious about having a beautiful lawn this summer, you might consider using a lawn dethatcher. A lawn dethatcher is a type of instrument that is also called a lawn sweeper, power rake, detaching rake or even a thatching machine. These machines are used for similar purpose. That purpose is to remove thatch that is not wanted from the lawn. You may get yourself wondering what thatch is, when you have never previously heard that word. Possibilities are, you get thatch in your lawn.

Thatch means any material in the lawn that is not desired. Thatch could include moss as well as dried weeds, but it could also refer to undesirable grasses as well as sod that is dead or creeping types of weeks. Even using a lawn detacher it will take much more time to eliminate dead sod or thick moss. Lawns that have dense moss may require the use of a lawn dethatcher several times.

A lawn detacher can cause it much easier to remove unwanted grass from the lawn. It actually works much better as compared to a mower with a lawn dethatcher blade. In comparison with a lawn detacher rake, the lawn detacher is substantially less time-consuming. The lawn dethatcher machine works by using four sets of rakes that revolve in a vertical fashion, hitting the floor at a perpendicular angle. There is a pulley on the lawn detacher machine that spins the blades.

There are many benefits to using a lawn detacher on the lawn, for example the ability to remove grasses and weeds from the lawn that are undesirable. This can help to improve the general health as well as look of the lawn. When moss and weeds are left in the lawn they can choke out the desirable grass as well as inhibit crucial sunlight and water to reach the lawn.

A lawn detacher machine can typically be rented from a rental store. You may need to pay approximately $50, although it may be more or less depending on the time you need to rent the lawn detacher. While using a lawn detacher you have to remember the importance of taking care when working with the machine, particularly around rocks, roots and sprinkler heads. The majority of lawn detachers are about the size of a lawnmower. The main difference between a lawn detacher and a regular mower is that the detacher machine is much more powerful and heavy.
