The Drip Store provides 18-gauge direct burial wire in 50' lengths, available for four and six station controllers. The wire can be used with any irrigation system to connect the controller to the AC valve using waterproof splice connections.
(See local code on wire installation.) Unless prohibited by local code, place the sprinkler wire in the same trench as the pipeline and below or close to the pipe. 18-gauge multi-strand wires are recommended and can be used for most residential applications. See waterproof wire connection details for connecting the wires. The white wire is used as the common wire to connect one of the valve’s two wires to the controller’s common wire, and each of the colored wires is used to connect to the other wire on each valve. At the other end of the wire, at the controller, connect the same white wire to the common terminal screw and the colored wire to each station representing the correct valve number. If rain or freeze sensors are used, connect to the sensor terminal or review the sensor instructions for details.
