Introduction: automatic sprayer. Inspired by the tutorial of robi_h, to build this automated sprayer system.
Hardware: the hardware consists of: a steel frame with PVC sleeve, a PVC hose, an automatic sprayer, and the remote control. The hardware is based mostly on old recycled parts including the old CD player and the computer power supply. Moreover, the system also addresses the low CD tray force problem by coupling a steel bar at the handle to support the original voltage levels of the CD unit and effectively take advantage of the electrical circuit without any further modification. This system also has an optional fan to remove the heat build-up on the glass during operation.
Installation: it’s quite easy to install the system with the help of a guide on YouTube. The manual gives step by step instructions. I did not have to read the manual since everything was mentioned in the video. However, the installation of this system can be dangerous because there are electric outlets on the wall and some electrical wires inside the frame, so you must carefully follow all instructions to avoid any accidents.
Performance: the system works perfectly, but it does consume a lot of energy. On average I use more than four hours of power for the system and it uses about three hours of power to operate the remote control.
Maintenance: to maintain the sprayer, you should check the blades and the hoses every two weeks to ensure that they are properly oiled. Make sure to use a grease based cleaner to prevent rusting. After using the system, it is advisable to clean the hoses and frames thoroughly with soapy water to remove the dirt. Make sure that the blades and hose are cleaned before cleaning.
Troubleshooting: after the system is already in use, you should check the system regularly to avoid unnecessary problems. If there is a problem, you should consult the manual to determine whether it is a hardware problem or a problem with the software. if the software is not compatible with your system, try to download another program.
User Manual: there is a user manual available for the remote control. It will guide you on how to change and fix the remote control.
Overall, I think this automatic system is great for those who like to keep their lawns and gardens tidy. However, make sure to follow all directions to avoid unnecessary accidents.
To clean your lawn, first make sure that your lawnmower is fully charged and running. You can start your automatic sprayer by simply pushing the button on the remote control and then use the sprayer by placing the nozzle on your grass, and then press the switch to start the watering.
There are different types of lawns and climates, so before you start watering, you should do some research on the type of lawn you are using. There are different types of automatic sprayers such as those with automatic timers and those with a water source that is attached to the lawnmower.
Check for weeds before you start watering your lawn because some weeds grow faster than others. If you see that there are some weeds, wait till the weeds have been removed by the automatic sprayer before you go on to watering your lawn.
Once you have watered the lawn, you should check the yard once again before you go for any maintenance activities. For instance, after each watering, you should mow the lawn to make sure that all areas of the lawn have been watered to ensure that there is no over-watering. Then, you can go and mow it again and check for weeds and any remaining grass that may have fallen. The lawn that is left can be mowed again so that it looks clean and fresh.
A good idea is to inspect the lawn for any leaves that have fallen before putting up your new plants. You may want to inspect your lawn often because leaves can cause diseases.
