It’s impossible for golf accesories to second-guess the great British weather when it comes to deciding on their irrigation needs. As we headed into July it was shaping up to be a classic British summer with a real mix of weather, so how do you manage the inconsistency if your system isn’t quite up to scratch?
Robert Jackson, water division sales manager for Toro irrigation distributor Reesink Turfcare, says: “For clubs pondering the question: do I give that much-needed upgrade or retrofit the green light only to be met with a washout summer – or risk limping through a scorcher with my current system? With Toro, there’s a quick, easy and cost-effective option for those waiting for a new system or wanting to take a step towards some of the benefits a new installation will afford – and that is to upgrade some of your sprinklers.”
It really is as simple as that. There are so many options to choose from to ensure your course is benefitting from the very latest Toro sprinkler technology.
“For instance, it’s widely known that you can replace competitor sprinklers with our T7 Series Rotor,” continues Rob. “But it’s a common misconception that some older Toro sprinklers can’t be upgraded. This is untrue and misinformation! So, this summer, I would urge all those using sprinklers connected to a remote solenoid valve to upgrade to the advanced, robust T7 golf rotor. Not only will upgrading to precision T7 sprinklers improve the overall efficiency of your system at the right pressure and flow, but, per unit, they’re also much less expensive than equivalent competitor models.
“Our range also includes conversion assemblies for upgrading both Toro and other manufacturers’ models. So, my message is – talk to Toro this summer! You may not be able to depend on the weather, but you can depend on us if you want to get more from your existing system without splashing out on a major replacement or retrofit.”
Sprinkler swap-outs with Toro bring design improvements and addresses specific irrigation needs such as arc retention to achieve a strict start-stop without unwanted movement, eliminating dwell points and subsequent pooling and ensuring even distribution.
