Irrigation system Design

Hi All,

I have irrigation system that is working with Melnor 4 zone water timer without valve box. System works great so far but I would like have Rainbird controller installed to my garage instead of hose timer. Below is my new system design. Can you please tell me if that would work fine ?

Thank you so much in advance for all your comments :)

So, you will need to install a Backflow Device, control valves, and wiring. Since you are already running off of your faucet, you can install a backflow off of it. There are some vacuum breakers that can be installed on your faucet, I am not sure if that is legal to do with attaching it directly to a sprinkler system.
