This online video course is about all the different kinds of valves that can be used in an irrigation / sprinkler system. Beginners can take this course with only a minimum of knowledge and skills such as using a multi-meter. For FULL comprehension and application on the path to becoming a professional sprinkler system technician, we recommend you take some other courses first: Intro to Irrigation, Electrical Basics, & Piping Systems.
Be sure to download the 25 page Study Guide from the link in the first lesson. We recommend that you acquire a multi-meter and the different valves that we disassemble and follow along in real time. You'll gain so much confidence by troubleshooting and rebuilding a bunch of different valves.
The course is in English and uses the Imperial Measurement System (inches, feet, pounds.) We hope to provide lessons in Metric and Spanish at some point in the future. For now, download Hunter's Friction Loss Charts PDF that has a conversion chart for Metric / Imperial.
Some things you'll learn:
Understand the difference between different valve types used on sprinkler systems.
Know where and how to install the different valve types on a sprinkler system.
Disassemble and repair several models of residential level irrigation valves.
Troubleshoot and repair both electrical and mechanical aspects of several common valve problems.
Who should take this course?
Landscaping and Lawn Care professionals wanting to expand their service offerings and make more money.
Beginners in the irrigation / sprinkler business wanting a comprehensive, real-world education.
DIY homeowners, gardeners, etc.
