Stupid questions...regarding wiring.. irrigation
Hi all.. I've got a question but probably know the answer but figured I'd ask anyway.. I've got a house with two separate sprinkler controllers -- one is an old Toro model bought 10+ years ago from Home Depot -- nothing special.. The other is a nice Weathermatic SmartLine controller that is about 2 years old and which I love way more than the toro.. To that end, the Toro controls the front yard and the Weathermatic the back.. Currently the Toro is only controlling a single valve -- no issue with that on the Weathermatic -- one more slot is available.. However, the two controllers are about 75' from each other... Sure, I can dig a trench and crawl under the house to connect the front system to the rear -- but thought I'd see if there's a wireless product around that would effectively play the part of a relay station of sorts where the weathermatic can turn on the phantom zone and the enable would be sent wirelessly to the receiver in the front yard which would then turn on the valve.. Does anything like that exist?
P.S. IF nothing like this exists, I do have existing conduit running underground for 110VAC from our house to the garage -- Is it a bad idea to run a sprinkler cable down in the same conduit as the high-volt AC? Would there be any issues with the AC line causing interferance? I'm thinking not since both are AC voltages -- albeit one is high, the other low..
