    Here we have another small project from the Furze book, what would you use it for....the garden or attack muhahaha. Link to get hold of the book yourself is in the description. Thanks to all that have bought it and are enjoying it. CF

    Right i need to make this and wire it to a PIR sensor. Aim it at the roof with the Nozzle and every time a Pigeon lands. Voila F' off pigeon! That must mean i could use one of those ultrasonic scarers as the trigger system!

    WTF is a hose pipe is it a hose or a pipe? Pro tip hose is flexible pipe is not.

  • AranXD

    Will this work if the hose isn't connected to a faucet? Let's just say it's connected to stagnant water. Will it work?

      +Therkelsen are there other ways to make the hose valve open and close with a remote, without using a bunch of circuits?

    • Therkelsen
      Therkelsen Month ago

      +AranXD It acts like a door for the water, opening/closing when you activate it.

    • AranXD

      +Therkelsen what does the hose valve do? What happens when the remote control clicks?

    • Therkelsen
      Therkelsen Month ago

      The type of water connected to the hose has no impact on the circuitry, so it should work, yeah.

    why didn't you just put the solenoid valve at the beginning so you don't have to drag it?

    Got your switches backwards and should have taken the negative from the solenoid to the common tab. Open switch means no flow, closed switch means full power through

    6:05 - that's the opposite actually. "NC" stands for "Normally Closed", and this means that the contact (or "switch") is closed at "resting" position. "NO" stands for "Normally Open" and means an open circuit at resting position. "Resting position" means when even no current is fed to the system - I'm talking about "power supply", because you can possibly feed the circuit with 12V DC (which is its own operating voltage, and the voltage which the relay is operated) and let the relay manage, let's say, a 110V AC or 220V AC circuit instead. In this case, using the NC contact will still work however with the "opening/closing the water job", but something bad happens: the relay is "active" while trying to keep the valve closed, draining the batteries unnecessarily (supposed that the valve should stay closed most of the time).

    It would be much easier to put the hose clamps on BEFORE attaching the hoses to the solenoid valve :P Easy for your short hoses, but not so easy if you're working with the end product (long hoses).

    This would mean the hose pipe input side would be pressurized all the time and I find that hosepipes split and squirt water everywhere if you leave them pressurized for to long, but we'll done for using dubalee clips instead of the hozlock connectors as they spring leaks and pop off altogether, I know because used to work in a garden centre and the hozlock connectors are a common failure when where where watering the nurserys

    This would be great for a Red-Light/Green-Light game using a sprinkler, and put a slip-n-slide at the end, or make the race end at the pool!
    (For those unfamiliar, I'm Jamaican so this might be a game not everyone knows, it's a race type game where all the kids line up, and one person separate shouts "Green light!" And they all run, "Red Light!" And they have to stop. The fun is trying to trick people by saying stuff like "Green LIME!" or "Red Flight" etc... if someone runs before you say green light, or if you say a different word they go back to the start, same with red light.. if they don't stop fast enough or mishear you they go back.
    You can use any code words you like, or even use actual lights, or hand gestures, but in JA where I'm from and in FL we used RL/GL.
    So my idea was to use the sprinkler with this game, run while the water is on, stop when it's off.. first to the slide or pool wins, and maybe you could add some obstacles and fun stuff along the way, slip slides, kid pools etc.. )
    Some variations you can try:
    - Hand gestures. We have done games where right hand up/open was go, left hand up/open was stop. That was hard because kids mess up the arms, or run even though you made a fist.. the more impatient they are the more fun!
    - Trivia Run! Ask fun questions, like "What is Hulks real name?" Or "Who was Spidermans uncle?". This one only works with a few kids, so you can hear the responses. If they get it wrong, they start over.
    - Jam Session! Play music, and only run while the music is playing, but with a twist. If (once stopped) they can guess the song and/or artist they can take a few steps forward, or jump ahead a place. But if they get it wrong, they go to the back of the pack. This one is my favorite to play with my sisters kids, because they love classic rock now and it's cute hearing a 6 year old shout "Forever Yours! JOURNEY! Right!? Did I get it!?" So it's a fun way to share music you love, and know they probably can't guess it until they've played a few times and learned the songs.

    This boards are intended to be used with a low voltage "control" supply (12V) and an ISOLATED AC 230/120V supply to drive lamps or similar, that is why they have the relay, to isolate. The three terminals of the relay (COM, NO, NC) are like the three terminals on a SPST switch. The relay connects the Common with the NC when no voltage is applied to the coil, and connects the Common and NO terminals when the coil is energyzed.

    Put the negative from the solonoid to common and normally closed means a closed circuit whitch it will be on and normals open is an open circuit and it is off backwards from logic but if it is a toggle switch it won’t matter but if it is like a tactile button it will be inverted.
