Multi Zone sprinkler system.

I have just ordered my first kit from Mr. Landscaper, I got the 50 ft. Micro Sprinkler Starter Kit...

This is just an experiment for me, to see if I like this system...  If I like it, and it works out for me, I am looking to use your products to run sprinklers all around my house.  Thinking about it, I'd need four zones, two would be 40-50 psi for sprayer heads, and 2 would be with 25 psi for drippers...

My question is, since I don't see any robust timer setups on your site, can I use a traditional sprinkler system timer with the relay valves that is normally used with sprinkler systems, then after the electric valves, hook up your system with the pressure regulators after the timer controlled valves?

This is a  project I've wanted to do for a long time, but just now am getting around to it.  Normally we just water everything (even our lawn) by hand, but our plant collection is growing and I'm getting tired of that...

The first kit we got we are just going to hook up directly to a spicket in the back yard to see how it works, and to start getting an idea of timings...

Thank you, and I hope to hear back soon with someone telling me that it can be done, with a couple idea's on how maybe?

Hi James in Hawaii,
Thank you for contacting us and giving our products a try!
When you say "two zones would be 40-50 psi for sprayer heads" do you mean our Micro Sprays or do you mean underground pop up sprinkler spray heads?  And on the question of using electric valves with a traditional sprinkler timer yes you are welcome to use our products with these devices.  Simple things to keep in mind is to use a filter with micro and drip products along with the proper pressure regulators.  Please let me know if you have any questions on any of this and you can email us here at mister landscaper at sales@misterlandscaper.com

Have a great day!

Good afternoon!

As to your question, yes, it will be all using your products.  I have no sprinklers right now and am planning on having two zones that are for your microsprayers, and two zones for your drip lines...

In posting about this setup, I was acutally hoping for a few tips on how to get this all setup from hooking up the outside water spicket to the pvc for the automatic valves, then back to a 3/4 in. threaded adapter for your lines to connect...  when I get the kit I'll be plugging directly to start testing and learning your part of my plans, but the actual valve connections I have very little idea about...

Thank you, I'm watching for that email to make it here...

Just a note though, I have no sprinkler system in place right now, and being that I am located in Hawaii, I wasn't planning on putting anything underground...  I was going to come out of the garden hose connection into the timmer valves, then straight into the Mr. Landscaper sprinkler system.  The whole system was going to be above ground...  I don't need to worry about anything freezing since I am in Hawaii...

Mahalo!
