Testing a Faulty Timer Transformer

Often if you are having troubles with a sprinkler zone the problem could be a faulty transformer. If your transformer which is connected to your irrigation system has gone bad you can test it to see if it's working properly rather easily.

To test your transformer all you will need to do is use a multimeter. Place the leads of the multimeter to the transformer terminals which are labeled 24 VAC while the transformer is plugged in. If your multimeter is reading under 22 you will know that your transformer is faulty and needs to be replaced. Once you replace your transformer your zones should be up and running again in no time.

How to Choose the Best Sprinkler Wire

Occasionally you will have to replace parts of your sprinkler system, such as the sprinkler heads or other components of the system. The sprinkler wiring, however, should last for years to come giving you efficient and consistent production from your sprinkler system. Here at PlumbersStock, we sell a variety of wire for all types of sprinkler systems, whether big or small. The options for wiring also consist of multi-wire applications.

Multi-wires are a benefit when you have multiple circuits (valves) in your sprinkler system. Each circuit requires an individual wire. Using 3, 5, or 7-strand allows for the use of less sprinkler wiring and also helps to identify which wire goes with which circuit by color. If you decide that you want to add on to your system in the future, use underground sprinkler wire with extra strands for easy addition. Another benefit of using multi-strand wire is that it is easy to repair when the occasion arises. You can splice the wire in case of a cut, or if the addition of more wire is needed.

We carry Orbit sprinkler wire, as well as King.

Sprinkler Wire Connectors

We also sell wire connectors in different sizes for any job. A wire connector’s job is to protect the exposed copper wiring when not in use or not connected to a sprinkler circuit. Here at PlumbersStock, we sell both waterproof and silicon-filled connectors to help keep the wiring safe and dry.

Tips for Burying Your Sprinkler System Wiring

Obviously, you do not want unsightly wiring poking out of the ground. The sprinkler wire below is all rated for burial applications. Both Regency and Orbit wires comply with UL and NEC requirements for electrical safety. As you will be burying the underground sprinkler wire, you may also want to consider a PVC conduit to help protect the wires from weathering. This is a cost-effective way to help prevent continuous maintenance of your sprinkler system.
