BUILT TO MAKE NON-POTABLE WATER A NON-FACTOR:
Made from the plastics used in products like swimming pools and non-potable, water-resistant valves, the RD1800’s Triple-Blade Wiper Seal, SAM Check Valve and ratchet ring protect against the chlorine and debris commonly found in reclaimed water. With each irrigation cycle, the RD1800’s unique debris pockets hold grit in place, so it can’t break down spray components and damage the wiper seal. All of this technology makes the RD1800 the perfect candidate for your next project, whether you’re dealing with reclaimed water, or just want a spray tough enough to handle anything.
WE DECIDED TO TAKE A FIELD TRIP:
Need a little more convincing of the RD1800’s fitness for non-potable water? We thought you might, so we turned this bad boy over to LEGOLAND®, a family theme park in California, for field testing. Ninety percent of the landscaping at LEGOLAND® is irrigated with non-potable water. The LEGOLAND® team routinely changes out several spray heads a day because they are destroyed by high levels of chlorine. They wanted to see if the RD1800 would fare any better, so they installed more than 200 of the sprays in early 2011.
Spray maintenance for the zones where the RD1800 was installed fell to zero, freeing up LEGOLAND’s maintenance staff for other projects. The site now plans to replace 10,000 more sprays with the RD1800. That’s right, 10,000. Don’t forget to stretch beforehand, you guys.
