Innovative Irrigation Tech: Add Flow Sensing and Re Connect Valves Without Digging, Trenching or Boring

By: Allister Cooney & Ewan Parker


 


October 4, 8:00 AM - 9:30 AM



Course Description:


Replacing old controllers with weather based, 'smart controllers' has helped conserve water in California. But the next logical step of adding flow sensors, master valves and re-connecting 'lost' valves without expensive re-wiring has perplexed irrigation manufacturers and professionals alike. It's been estimated that as much as 10-25% of all irrigation water used is lost to undetected leaks, but it has been prohibitively expensive to retrofit this technology… until now. For the first time, we can utilize wireless technology and existing infrastructure to avoid costly and disruptive trenching or boring.

One aspect of irrigation control that Ewan is particularly passionate about is the proactive use of soil moisture and ET data for irrigation control. Experience in the agriculture and golf industries using soil moisture data via multi sensor stacked probes fuels his interest in driving greater acceptance of soil moisture-driven control and data collection in the landscape irrigation space.
