|Contractor Tip of the Month: Locating Valves with a Chatter-Type Locator|A quick and easy way to locate buried valves
When using a chatter type valve locator, you can increase your chances of hearing the solenoid chatter by stabbing a valve key (or any long metal rod) into the ground and placing your ear on the top end of it. The key will pick up the noise vibration from several feet way.

Move More Water & Get Better Performance with ADS "Smoothwall" Pipe
Easy installation, lasting performace
Smoothwall drainage pipe from Advanced Drainage Systems (ADS) is easy to work with and offers advantages over traditional corrugated pipe.
Smoothwall pipe is available in 10' lengths; 3", 4" and 6" diameters, and joins with simple, secure bell-and-spigot connections. The pipe is made with a white, high density polyethylene layer around a black polyethylene core to form a lightweight pipe with excellent beam stiffness.
Because Smoothwall is relatively stiff in the longitudinal direction, it can easily be laid straight and "true to line and grade". The smooth interior walls mean less slope is needed to get the pipe to drain properly versus corrugated. The pipe provides for safe, easy, efficient installations without breaking, splitting or cracking, and is more impact-resistant that PVC, ABS or styrene.
Smoothwall can be used for all your turf drainage needs as well as sidewalk culverts and on-site waste management systems.

|2-Wire Decoder System? Trust Silver Creek to Help You Succeed|
We provide the right wire, grounding supplies and splices Introduced in the 1960's, 2-wire decoder systems have been part of the golf industry for decades. In recent years, several manufacturers have introduced 2-wire systems for commercial and park sites. They offer simplified installation and a dramatic reduction in the amount of wire needed.
With decoder systems, failure to follow correct wiring and splicing procedures is often a cause of premature failure. Use the wiring specifications provided by the manufacturer and select a cable that is compatible with their equipment.
It is never advised to use leftover wire from one project with another brand of system. Nor will it work to substitute plain wire for the specialized cable required for reliable communication within the system. There are many cases where the contractor had to go back and install the correct cable to make the system work properly.
works closely with Regency Wire and Cable
to provide you with manufacturer-approved wire, grounding
equipment (plates, rods and grounding
material) and 3M brand splices commonly required for your decoder
project. Rely on us to get you the materials to make it work right!
