How To Set up QOTO Smart garden water timer and Build a Sprinkler System

Convert your hose tap to smart watering with the QOTO Smart Tap Timer with zigbee Gateway. The Wi-Fi hub can control multiple timers, and each timer can extend the range of the Wi-Fi signal.

  • Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

  • Auto-scheduling

  • Conserves water

  • Instant access to manual tap use

  • Complete control from anywhere you are using an app on your smartphone

  • Uses WeatherSense, which will shut off the timer in the rain, increase water when it's hot, and decrease water in colder weather.

Set up the garden water timer
Attach the timer inlet to the outdoor faucet/spigot turning clockwise - hand tighten only. From the timer outlet connect a sprinkler irrigation system or a garden hose.

Step 1: Gather information about your water supply

To make sure you order the right components, you'll need to gather some important information about your water supply, including the following:

  • Water pressure in PSI

  • Size of the water meter or well pump

  • Size of the water service line

  • Flow rate measured in gallons per minute

Step 2: Create an irrigation map

Draw a diagram of your property, including any trees, shrubs, and flower beds. Mark on the diagram where the control valves and pipes will go. Mark where the sprinkler heads will go as well. Be sure to space them so they'll provide adequate coverage.

Step 3: Gather your supplies

Based on the specifications of your water system and irrigation map, gather the components of your sprinkler system. The main parts of any sprinkler system include:

  • Sprinkler heads

  • Risers

  • PVC pipe

  • Automatic water timer

Step 4: Use stakes and string to guide your installation

Place stakes or flags in your yard where each sprinkler will go. Connect the stakes with string to indicate where the pipe will lay.

Step 5: Dig your trenches

Follow the string and dig a trench for your pipe. Your trench should be 8 to 10 inches deep and 4 inches wide.

Step 6: Connect your pipe

Lay your pipe into the complete trench to make sure you have enough. Using a primer and adhesive, connect the ends of the PVC pipe. Use a tee connection where each sprinkler will go.

Step 7: Hook up to the water source

Once your pipe is assembled, you are ready to connect to the main water source. Connect your control valve to an existing faucet or directly to the service line. If connecting to the service line, it's recommended to hire a plumber to complete this step. Your PVC sprinkler pipe will connect to the control valve as well. You can use multiple valves to control water flow to different zones of your yard.

Step 8: Attach the risers

Place a riser into each tee connection along your PVC pipe.

Step 9: Flush out the system

Before you install your sprinkler heads, you need to flush the system of any dirt that might have gotten into the pipes during construction. Turn on the main water supply to the system and let it go until any debris has flowed out.

Step 10: Install sprinkler heads

Attach a sprinkler head to each riser. Be sure that they are placed pointing in the right direction and that they connect at, or just above, the soil level to ensure proper function.

Step 11:  Install an automatic timer

Wire it to the control valve using a waterproof pipe. A timer can be programmed to schedule different watering zones of your yard at various times.

Step 12: Test your system and bury the pipe

Once you've verified your system is flowing properly with no leaks, you can finally cover the pipe and enjoy your new sprinkler system.
