5 acres of irrigation, no power to rain birds.... Solution?

Posted by neondiary (My Page) on

Hi I have moved into a home with 5 acres of irrigated landscape.... Id like to set up all the rain bird 3/4 valves up on a controller. Ideally, I wouldn't have to dig and run wires to reach these valves, is there any battery powered or solar powered valves that can be controlled with wifi? I've had no luck searching so far online, but it seems like a great solution, otherwise, any suuggestions for setting up a couple of power stations with multiple controllers to prevent all that digging?

sorry to say there is no remote way to control the valves unless they are already wired to a controler. rain bird does make battery powered timers for individual valves.
