Autoflow Irrigation has completed many projects, varying in cost from small residential installs, up to large commercial projects and acreage properties.
Parramatta Marist High School.
This field is trained on by the Parramatta Juniors so a quick turnaround was required. The field had to be usable within a short time frame. Our turf cutter was used to remove the turf from each row of sprinklers and mainline prior to installation. We were then able to trench, install our pipes and sprinklers and carefully back fill the soil so so the turf would match up to the existing turf again. Once the turf was re-instated we would roll it and give it a good soak. It didn't miss a beat and our clients were very happy with the results. We used the existing tank and pump to re-install a new system to replace the very outdated hydraulic system that was there. Coverage issues were also overcome by installing 35 Rainbird 6504 sprinklers spaced around 15-16m apart. We also upgraded the existing controller for their second field linking them both to the one controller, and then allowing the fields to have the benefits of a flow sensor, weather station, and Smartlink aircard for online control and monitoring.
Patrician Brothers Fairfield. It started as a Quick Coupler Valve (QCV) system for manual watering of the turf and turned into a major project with over 100 Rainbird 6504 sprinklers being installed on their multi purpose sports field where cricket, rugby league and soccer are played. Over 400m of 63mm mainline was installed, fed by a 58,000L rainwater tank and a pumped sized to deliver the quantity of water required in a short time frame. This was a decoder system with a flow sensor, weather station, and Smartlink aircard for online control and monitoring.
Knox Preparatory School, Wahroonga. Two separate systems were installed at Knox Prep school on their fields. A cricket pitch is in the middle of both fields, and they are used for soccer and rugby during Winter. Both have their own Rainbird ESP-me controllers with LNK module to use the school's wifi for internet control. Rainbird 6504 Stainless Steel sprinklers were used throughout. The school's full time greenkeepers are now able to spend their time on other tasks whilst having a beautiful lush field for the students.
East Village, Zetland. Installation of 24 zone irrigation system on 6th level rooftop. System is made up of Weathermatic Smartline controller, Netafim drip line in garden beds, Hunter PGP and various MP Rotator sprinklers in lawn areas. Rainbird spray nozzles are used on fruit/vegetable raised planters.

Port Botany Terminals- We improved a very poorly installed two year old drip system in readiness for new planting to be undertaken. We upgraded the Weathermatic Smartline controller (to be used elsewhere on the site) and installed a Hunter Hydrawise Pro HC wifi controller and flow meter. The controller will adjust the run times based on current weather, and the flow meter will send alerts in the event of a high or low flow if there is a leak, or valve that has failed to open.
The previous installers didn't use conduit for the cable so we cleaned it all up. There is a second conduit for the flow meter cable to avoid interference. It was a tricky spot to install conduit due to many obstacles in the way such as the power point, tap, and drain.
We installed pressure reducing valves on the solenoid valves that were not previously installed as drip operates on low pressure, cleaned out plastic shavings out of the pump so it could work properly, and lowered the valve boxes to be level with the ground to avoid damage from the mowers. The landscapers will install the dripline.
