A zone is a particular physical area of your landscape, served by its own separate zone valve that turns it on and off. Zone valves can be operated manually or automatically by a controller that sends 24 volts of electricity to the valves via underground wires. Valves are grouped in manifolds (branched pipes) in one or more locations throughout the landscape. Manual valves are installed aboveground so they can be operated conveniently; automatic valves are placed underground in plastic valve boxes.
