Disgarded Concept

Final Model Design: Irrigation Valve

After the decision to scrap the mouse trap valve concept, we moved back to the original, off-the-shelf option we had. This option was available on the internet for a price that was relatively inexpensive ($32/pair). Considering the overall costs associated with the kiosk, this price was determined to be insignificant compared to the safety and reliability benefits the valves will supply. They are intended for low flow, low pressure irrigation purposes which fit our project perfectly. The particular model we chose uses an electrically controlled solenoid valve which requires electric power to be open. This passive-closed system integrates well with the needs of the project to stop water flow when power is lost.
