Can you show us a diagram of how the hoses are plumbed from the pump out to the nozzles? Even a napkin drawing will do.I have the 60 gallon sprayer with the folding 12 ft boom. The manual cutoff was 3 hoses and a pressure gauge. How do I plumb in an electrically activated cut off solenoid?
It just cuts off flow to the boom, and Liquid is still flowing through the left side (that has the pressure regulator valve) because recirculation/agitation is still active. I’m not sure what is happening on the right side.When you close that shut-off valve does it divert the fluid somewhere or does it just dead-head the pump?
Given the complexity of the existing valve that was my thinking as well. That way you still have the ability to manually shut things off if necessary.I think so. That’s what I’m trying to figure out. Not sure if I should just plumb it into the line from the valve to the boom, or if it replaces the existing manual valve. I don’t have the solenoid in hand, and can’t find out much about it online. It’s the county line 2500b that tsc sells. I know that it works, but don’t know exactly to set it up.
I should probably just stop thinking about it and set it up to cut off flow to the boom, and leave the existing valve in place. But, maybe that would be too easy...
Yes, that was the initial idea, until I fired up the overthinking machinery and was able to make it more complicated. simply tapping into the boom line and zip-tying it together is more in line with my skilll level.I don't see any reason to replace the manual control valve. That whole assembly can stay exactly as it is and will continue to handle pressure regulation. Just put the electric solenoid valve inline between the manual valve and the boom. Cut the hose, two hose barb fittings on the valve, and you're done.
