8.0 PATTERNS

8.1 Online Costs include standard patterns and straight lines all curves and bespoke patterns will be charged separately.

 

9.0  IRRIGATION

9.1 An electrical supply will be required at the location of the controller. If outside, this will be required on an outdoor socket. This supply will need to be a single phase 13amp supply on an independent RCD on the main consumer unit.

9.2 All systems with a tank (irrigation only or RWH and irrigation) require a mains automatic refill – as such a water supply is always required. This must be provided on a standard 1” pipe or outdoor brass tap and should have a 2 bar pressure.

9.3 For larger gardens and greater irrigation demands, a larger water tank will be required. The tank sizing can be calculated once a system design has been completed (i.e. exact number of pop-ups, micro sprinklers etc. will determine the irrigation demand and subsequent tank sizing).

9.4 The mains automatic refill must conform to WRAS category 5 regulations complete with above-ground regulatory air-gap.

9.5 Tank sizing for a RWH and Irrigation system is based on a reasoned judgement between potential rainfall yield and irrigation demand. Once the final irrigation demand is determined, the appropriate tank size can be determined.

9.6 Larger irrigation systems will require a more powerful pump. Once the final system design is determined, the appropriate pump can be specified.

9.7 Pressurised irrigation systems will require additional components to the pump (pressure vessel and hydrova). These are usually used in large gardens to ensure the whole system will operate at its optimum performance.

9.8   All excavation works for underground tanks will be required to be undertaken by the clients’ building contractor. This is to ensure conformity with requisite drainage lines from the house and any planning and/or building regulations pertinent to the property.

9.9 RWH systems can only harvest rainwater taken from roof areas. If any rainwater is to be harvested from pavement, balcony or driveway areas, this is classified as grey-water and requires a significantly higher level of filtration. These systems can only be designed on a bespoke basis. Any client wishing to explore this option should contact Watermatic directly.

9.10 Under no circumstances should rainwater be consumed or used for standpipe provision – there are associated health risks with storing rainwater and then consuming it.

9.11 Pots and hanging baskets can be irrigated too. These will be £5.00 + vat per pot/hanging basket.

9.12 All irrigation systems operate with solenoid valves using low voltage 24v cable. These valves are usually located in green-topped valve boxes which will be buried within the back of flowerbeds in a remote, yet accessible location. These boxes will be flush with the soil for aesthetic purposes.

9.13 Labour costs are calculated on a London and home county location. Any site further afield will be subject to greater associated costs.

9.14 No costs have been accounted for any additional work (i.e. electrical, lifting paving, angle grinding etc.) as these are on a site-by-site basis
