Article #1

Summer 2013 has been hot and dry for most of us…the best summer for many years. Most of us benefited from long periods of dry weather, and we certainly enjoyed it. Most bowls clubs will have watered their greens at some point during the season. Even without an irrigation system, I bet the hose pipes and sprinklers were switched on to keep the grass alive and keep the green looking and playing it’s best.

Putting a water sprinkler on during the day wastes a heck of a lot of water, as most of the water evaporates skywards due to warmer air and ground temperatures. In fact, as much as 30% of the water applied may be wasted (so not being used to help keep your grass alive) compared to watering your bowls green during the night.

If a standard irrigation sprinkler is set to operate from the mains supply, it may use 800 litres of water during a 60 minute operation time. That may not sound a lot, but if you think that if the irrigation sprinkler is moved around the green 4 times throughout the day, each time running for 1 hour that’s 3,200 litres! With almost 1,000 litres of precious water wasted, and not benefiting the grass on your bowls green. Amazingly, if you water your bowls green every day for 3 weeks, thats over 21,000 litres of wasted water!

An automatic bowls green watering system will help to radically reduce water wastage, by watering at night when the ground temperature is at its lowest, the wind speed is reduced, and by applying water evenly across the bowls green surface, will make much better use of this precious resource.

The Principle

Completely automatic irrigation system for a standard 40m square bowling green, allowing for natural rainfall and giving a high degree of application uniformity, essential for a first class playing surface.

 

The System

The Prime Irrigation BG9-RB kit, which is individually programmable to take into account local conditions, incorporates high quality RainBird irrigation equipment which has been installed in systems throughout the UK and has proved it's reliability in service.

 

The Equipment

Sprinklers- RainBird rotary sectoring sprinklers with "fine tune" facility ensuring optimum coverage and uniform distribution. The Eagle 750 series pop-up sprinkler with its high performance specification ensures even watering even in windy conditions.

Automatic Controller- Easy to operate nine station controller with micro-computer accuracy. Seven day calendar, programmable for specific days of the week (even days, odd days, third day watering etc.). Semi-automatic and manual operation.

Control Valve- RainBird PGA series remote control solenoid valves with sealed electrical connections.

Other Equipment- Horizontal, multi-stage, centrifugal electric pump set, extra high efficiency with steady and quiet operation. Switches, valves, underground ring main, fittings, full working drawings, operation and installation instructions.

Optional Equipment

5000 litre moulded polyethylene tank with integral lid

Timber cubical to house pump and control equipment.

 

Connections to Existing Services

Due to the many different types and sizes of mains water supply pipes our kit does not include for this connection. A 13 amp socket outlet is required for the controller and a second supply is required for the pump. The pump and controller need not be at the same location. No two sites are alike and so the distance between pump/controller and green varies considerably. Therefore extra pipe and cable may be required to bridge this gap - the kit allows for a maximum distance of 25 metres.

 

The Installation

Supplied as a kit the system has been designed to be installed on a "do-it-yourself" basis. All items can be easily identified from the comprehensive drawings and installation instructions provided with each kit. Alternatively part or full installation can be undertaken by our own fully trained installation team.

 

The Advantages

A completely unsupervised irrigation system which can be programmed for a controlled night time watering operation allowing maximum use of the green. The system will save on both labour and water.with a minimum of fuss and disturbance.

The Old College St. Bridge, Bowling Green KY May 3, 2010

So, the bowls season is over. The clubhouse is closed, the seats and scoreboard are cleared away and the green is closed down. It’s time for winter bowls green maintenance to commence, or at the very least be planned for the coming months.

Summer 2013 has been hot and dry for most of us…the best summer for many years. Most of us benefited from long periods of dry weather, and we certainly enjoyed it. Most bowls clubs will have watered their greens at some point during the season. Even without an irrigation system, I bet the hose pipes and sprinklers were switched on to keep the grass alive and keep the green looking and playing it’s best.

Putting a water sprinkler on during the day wastes a heck of a lot of water, as most of the water evaporates skywards due to warmer air and ground temperatures. In fact, as much as 30% of the water applied may be wasted (so not being used to help keep your grass alive) compared to watering your bowls green during the night.

An automatic bowls green watering system will help to radically reduce water wastage, by watering at night when the ground temperature is at its lowest, the wind speed is reduced, and by applying water evenly across the bowls green surface, will make much better use of this precious resource.

One thing is certain: installing a well-designed watering system to your bowls green really helps a club apply water efficiently and evenly, at the right time, and reduces the amount of time spent moving sprinklers and hoses during the day, when really it doesn’t work that well.
