Rb-1
  1. An automatic sprinkler system is made of  3 main components:
    controllervalves and sprinklers.
Rb-2
  1. The Controller is the system’s brain
Rb-3
  1. When the Controller reaches a programmed start time, it sends a signal to one of the valves telling it to open.  Each valve controls a group of sprinklers. Each group of sprinklers is called a zone or station.
Rb-4
  1. The valve works like an automatic faucet. When it receives the commend from the controller it opens the flow of water.
Rb-5
  1. When the run time for the zone is done the controller tells the valve to close. The valve closes, shutting off the flow of water to the sprinklers.
Rb-6
  1. The process is repeated for each group of sprinklers in the system.
