European Football Cup in Portugal

I have worked with 8005 Series Rotors from Rain Bird since the installation of the new playing surface of Bessa Stadium (Boavista). The adjustment versatility as well as its simplicity makes this rotor unique in the irrigation market. I also consider that it provides even distribution over the entire radius of the sprinkler. The Dialog12 from Rain Bird that controls the irrigation has a water budget function that can be used to quickly regulate irrigation according to weather conditions, by changing the defined run times.

Maximum installation flexibility

The ease of installation, the technical support from Rain Bird and especially the power and user-friendly layout of the SiteControl system made it an ideal choice for Panpeloponisiako Olympic Stadium. We have now begun to expand more stadiums in the complex and the decoder design and specifications of the system allow us the flexibility to make quick and easy connections to the central controller

A tool like the Rain Bird Controller is as valuable to me as the players are to the Club!

SiteControl is a great tool, for two reasons. One, it takes care of complex watering requirements at the click of a mouse, and I know it will give me what a pitch needs, whether it proceeds to rain or whatever. Two, I can change things at a moment's notice, depending on the nature of the playing surface, or more likely, if a coach or player feels it's not quite right! And with that and ten pitches that we're renovating annually, let alone the challenge of working with limited water supplies, a tool like the Rain Bird Controller is as valuable to me as the players are to the Club!

Unparalleled ease of use

At Gaylord Palms Resort, we feature 4.5 acres of gardens under a soaring glass-covered atrium. This is in addition to our 65 acres of landscaped property. As you can imagine, it is essential that we manage our water carefully and maximize efficiency. SiteControl is the perfect tool. The SiteControl system is easy to use and gives us the flexibility to provide specific amounts of water in our many diverse locations. It also makes it easy to quickly respond with minor adjustments to accommodate the ever-changing factors that affect our complex irrigation requirements.
