Assembling the valve box or installing the valve box is fairly straight forward. Usually there is a little bit of cutting involved in order to fit the box over your pipes. Sometimes you have to cut out a piece of a side, or sometimes you don’t have to cut out anything if the pipes are deep enough in the ground. But in our case our holes are perfect for our situation and we just cut out the slivers of plastic and they fit right in over our pipe. And then you will make your final placement after your valves are fully installed.

So, now we are ready to start out valve box. We’re going to show this in close to real time because it’s a fairly important part of the process and one of the more technical parts. So, here I am cutting 3 to 4 inch pieces of Schedule 40 High Pressure PVC Pipe so that I can use them as connectors to my T’s and elbows when putting together the three valves that we have for this system. Of course, you’ll want to clean each piece before assembling with PVC cleaner. And once again, we’re using fairly quick dry glue. This is a valve and so I’m going to begin with gluing the valve to the pipe. And every valve system is going to be laid out probably just a little bit different, just depending on how many valves you have and where they are located in your system. In this particular system, we are going to put all the valves in one valve box. You can run the valves out to your individual zones and put a valve right at the beginning of each zone. In that case, you would need to take your main line all the way to the beginning of your zone. In this particular case, we are going to take our main line just a few feet and put all of our valves in one box.

So, I’ve laid out how I want my valves to lay in the valve box, and now I’m just gluing it together piece-by-piece making sure that the valves are pointing in the right direction. Just showing you that there are arrows on the valves there on the front and the back showing you the ...
