The solenoid valve is an essential part of an integrated irrigation system. This accessory allows the water supply to be opened or closed automatically, a function that can also be carried out via a timer. Focus on the use, installation and operation of a watering solenoid valve.

Indispensable in an automatic watering system, the valves open automatically to supply water to the sprinklers (turbines), nozzles or drip system on the programmer’s command. The solenoid of the valve is connected to the programmer by electrical wiring. The programmer will switch the water supply on or off. The solenoid valve also makes it possible to differentiate between watering zones for a personalised water supply, perfectly adapted to the water needs of each green space. So you can water your window box in drip mode in the middle of the night and order a rain jet for your lawn in the early morning.
