I have a shallow well and above-ground 1hp pump for lawn irrigation. An electric timer with 8-zone capacity controls six independent zones. The pump is started by the timer via a Pump Start Relay.
A hose-bib is installed in the pump discharge line immediately prior to the six above-ground solenoid valves.
As it is, for water pressure to be made available at the hose bib, one of the zones has to be turned on at the timer.
Is there a way to add a zone for the hose bib for use independent of the other zones? I’d like to have the option of watering with the hose without having to turn on the sprinklers.
