Skeet-R-Gone

How It Works

Liquid concentrate is injected into an existing sprinkler system by a 160 PSI pump that is housed in an exterior enclosure. This enclosure also houses the concentrate.
The concentrate is pumped through a small tube that connects to a special mixing chamber and saddle valve. These are installed directly onto the water supply after the backflow preventer.
The pump is controlled by a wiring harness that leads to the Skeet-R-Gone controller, which is mounted next to the sprinkler system control panel.

  1. Replace primer bottle with desired concentrate in the exterior enclosure. Manually activate a zone.
  2. Push red activation button on Skeet-R-Gone controller for pre-determined number of seconds, then release.
  3. Allow zone to run for an additional one minute (30 seconds to mix & distribute concentrate and 30 seconds to flush the zone), then deactivate zone.
  4. Repeat activation steps for each zone.
  5. Replace concentrate with primer bottle. *

* This step is necessary because the Skeet-R-Gone controller will not operate pump without primer.
