Adding Sprinkler Valve to Existing zone

10793 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  tilphan
I am wondering if anyone has a suggestion on how to add a new sprinkler valve to an existing zone. My current zone has about 12 heads on it and the grass has gotten pretty thick thru the years and it's hard for the sprinkler head to pop up all the way. And it's not as strong so coverage is not as good. How do I split the zone up. I see extra wires that I can use, but I don't know how to find where to split ? Any help would be appreciated.

The sprinkler heads can be changed to allow a higher popup or better spread. But seems like you have too many on one zone now. You will need to add another in-line valve and install it in the middle of the existing run. End the first part at that point and tie into the last heads with this new valve. Check out a some online supplies, they offer good guides.
