The 25mm QCV is designed to be installed in the ground so that the poly cap is just below the Mower level. The QCV is attached to a buried water supply line via a male threaded inlet. The QCV has an internal valve that is normally closed so that water does not leak out. To activate the valve, lift up the flipcap and insert the the KEY. On the top of the key you can have a sprinkler, a hose outlet or any other 25mm fitting as the key has a 25mm male BSP outlet. When the key is inserted, the internal valve is automatically opened and the water flows out through the key.
The Quick Coupling Valve Key is 25mm Male x 20mm Female
Are there any safety standards my irrigation system must meet?
The main safety concern is regarding the water supply. To avoid contamination of the mains water upstream, in most municipalities, a Dual Check Valve is required at the water connection.
Can I run an irrigation system off a regular garden tap?
A garden tap is an excellent place to connect your irrigation system. Ideally, install a connection point behind the tap (turn the water off first) so you can still use your tap to fill a bucket when you need to.
Do I need a plumber to install or fix my system?
No, unless you’re tapping into your water supply, a plumber isn’t required. Most domestic irrigation systems can be installed by anyone half handy.
