Check valve compatibility
Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controllers are compatible with 24V AC solenoid valves which is the standard for U.S. irrigation systems. So if you're located in North America, then your irrigation system is most likely compatible with a Rachio Smart Sprinkler Controller.
The following system types are not currently compatible with Rachio.
- Battery Powered/DC Systems
- 2-Wire Systems
- Most Commercial Systems with too many wires or zones.
Not sure if your valves are compatible?
If your system does not use these kinds of valves, you will want to replace them with 24V AC valves before installing your controller. If you are unsure of what kind of valves you have, we recommend consulting an irrigation professional.
