When it comes to irrigation systems, a missing nozzle can result in significant water waste and landscape damage before it is detected and repaired. Now, thanks to new FloGuard technology from Hunter Industries, these threats are significantly reduced. FloGuard adds an extra layer of protection to irrigation systems that protects landscapes and saves water the instant a missing nozzle is detected.
FloGuard is an optional, factory-installed feature for the 4", 6", and 12" Pro-Spray PRS models with check valve, and it is available in both potable and reclaimed water models.
When a missing nozzle is detected, FloGuard reduces the flow of water from the riser to 0.5 GPM and immediately generates a 10' tall indicator stream. This greatly reduces water waste and prevents costly landscape erosion while providing a clear indication for maintenance needs. To put this in perspective, water flow from a riser with missing a nozzle without FloGuard technology can range between 6 and 30 GPM.
During system flushing, the new blue flush-plug prevents the FloGuard feature from engaging. This allows proper line flushing to occur.
