Valves

Architectural Concepts uses Hunter valves in large (oversized) valve boxes to insure easy of locating and serviceability. These valves control the flow of water to your irrigation system. We supply power to these valves using 18 gauge "direct burial" wire to achieve a water tight long lasting connection.

Controllers

Architectural Concepts uses Hunters X-Core and Pro-C controllers depending on application. Hunter controllers offer versatility, ease of use, and expandability options. An ET system can be added turning your controller into an automatic calculating scientific irrigation program. The ET system’s sensor array includes solar radiation, relative humidity, temperature, a rain gauge that tracks precipitation, plus an optional anemometer for wind speed.

Poly Pipe

Architectural Concepts uses 80 psi polyethylene pipe. We use a vibrating plow to "pull" pipe into the ground between 6 and 12 inches deep, while causing minimal disturbance to lawn and landscape. We install different sizes of pipe depending on application, sizes range from 1” up to 1 ½” in diameter. Most residential applications are installed with the 1” 80psi polyethylene pipe.

Rain Bird

Architectural Concepts also installs rain bird products if requested.

Rain Sensor

Architectural Concepts installs a rain sensor on every system that we install. This not only shuts the system down when it’s raining, but turns it back on when it dries out allowing for a worry free season. They are required in both Minnesota and Wisconsin.

Rid O’ Rust

Remove unsightly rust stains from existing concrete, siding, brick and other materials with products from Rid O’ Rust. Siphoning feeder systems and injection feeder systems can be installed in well water irrigation systems. These systems either siphon, or inject the stain preventer directly into the water stream of your irrigation. These product used in conjunction with the feeder systems prevent stains and scale caused by iron in well water from building up on walls, sidewalks, fences, shrubs and other elements of landscaping.
