Some Serious Sprinkler Hardware

I went by the house today and there were some serious sprinkler control valves in our cellar…

They also installed a siamese connection and a “clapper” in the “front yard”…

siamese connection and clapper for sprinkler systemI used to just think that siamese connections were for dry sprinkler systems. Our sprinkler system is a wet system (has water in the lines all the time). So the siamese connection is there in case there’s a problem with water pressure or some other water supply failure.

The clapper goes off if sprinklers go off in our house. That way if we’re not home people on the street will know and (hopefully) call 911.
