These valves serve a unique need for large farm sprinkler or drip systems. They enable one timer to water up to six zones with one valve. Every time the water shuts off, the distributor switches to the next outlet. The watering time for each outlet can vary and is dependent upon the timer and not the distribution valve.
Automatic distribution valves are very reliable and will last for years. They are easily serviced, having only one moving part and eight total parts. The cams can be easily changed to increase or decrease the number of zones to be watered.
