Irrigander 4 Soaker Valve Switch

The Irrigander 4 Soaker valve switch  is a 4 zone switch that can control up to 4 irrigation valves using just one irrigation wire. Set the irrigation controller to the total run time desired for all the valves. The Irrigander 4 Splitter valve switch will detect the number of valves connected and divide the zone run time between the valves each time the zone is activated:

  • If 2 valves are connected each valve will run 50% of the total run time
  • If 3 valves are connected each valve will run 33% of the total run time
  • If 4 valves are connected each valve will run 25% of the total run time.

The Irrigander 4 Soaker valve switch is identical to the Irrigander 4 Splitter valve switch but has the added feature of applying water using the “cycle and soak” method. In the “cycle and soak” method of applying water each valve runs for several shorter periods instead of one longer period. The Irrigander 4 Soaker valve switch creates 3 run cycles for each connected valve based on the previous watering time. Between each watering cycle the watered areas soak. Water agencies recommend cycle and soak timing to improve water absorption into the soil and reduce water runoff and waste.

The Irrigander 4 Soaker valve switch is installed close to the valves to be controlled. Connect the input to the switch to the field wire connected to the irrigation controller and then connect the switch's outputs to the valves to be controlled (Irrigander 4 Soaker Valve Switch diagram). Set the irrigation controller to the total run time desired for all the valves.
