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.

Personalized Rotors with Your Logo Build Your Brand & Reputation
Stand out from the crowd with customized rotors with your logo

An example of a custom rotor with contractor's own logo 
Silver Creek leads the industry with the only program that will customize rotary sprinklers with your logo on the top of every head.

This program has already proven to be very popular because it builds the contractors brand on every job site installed, leaving a lasting impression of quality.  In this time of intense competition, the contractor that appears the strongest wins the job.

The benefits of customized rotors are significant:
  • Get additional referrals and top-of-mind presence
  • Differentiate yourself as a top-tier contractor
  • Reinforces your total professional image across your web site, uniforms and trucks, creating a brand that is magnetic to customers, increasing sales.
K-Rain's rotor offers many benefits:
  • Same adjustments as Hunter® PGP®.  
  • Retrofit compatible. No need to dig to replace worn or broken PGP® rotors. Just unscrew the internal and replace with RPS 75.  
  • Longer 5 year warranty.
Getting personalized rotors that build business on every installation and every service call is easy. Ask us for details. 

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. 


Silver Creek 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!
