As water conservation measures continue to be implemented worldwide, reclaimed water irrigation systems are becoming more common. However, reclaimed water generally contains high concentrations of chlorine and other contaminants that expedite the degradation of irrigation valves, lessening their effectiveness and shortening their overall lives in the field.
The robust new ICV-R reclaimed water valve from Hunter is specially designed for use in reclaimed water systems, and is constructed with chlorine-resistant materials. With the ICV-R, contractors and landscape designers have a valve built to withstand the unique wear and tear caused by contaminated and/or highly chlorinated water, allowing them to pursue more reclaimed water projects.
As an update to our popular ICV valve, the ICV-R has all the features and benefits of its predecessor, but has been optimized for reclaimed water use. The diaphragm is made from chlorine-resistant EPDM rubber, which significantly lengthens the valve’s field life. Filter Sentry™ comes standard with the ICV-R, keeping the diaphragm filter screen free of debris often found in reclaimed water. In addition, the purple flow control knob and ID tag allow for easy field identification.
