In our most recent post on Carson City High School Track and Field renovation, we mentioned an irrigation feature called the "Coach's Button". Here's a shallow dive into what that looks like.
Coach's buttons have traditionally been used to control baseball infield moisture control sprinkler valves. These buttons give the facility users access to run the irrigation system in limited locations without giving them access to the entire irrigation control system. Lloyd Sports & Engineering has been applying these same control systems to synthetic turf cooling systems. The cooling system coach's buttons allow the coach or other authorized staff the ability to cool the synthetic turf with the push of a button. The buttons, when pressed, operate irrigation sprinkler valves located in the synthetic turf. The buttons are preset for the desired runtime and also have a "lockout" time where the button can not be pressed again to prevent over watering. These photos are examples of a few different installations we have recently completed.
