The irrigation industry, like most other industries, has standards that all manufacturers must follow, such as electronic standards or thread types and sizes. This is the primary reason why mixing components is possible. Although each controller, valve, and sprinkler head will have physical restrictions or requirements, their functions and outputs are sufficiently similar to allow for interchangeability. An irrigation system functions similarly to an electrical or HVAC system. It is not necessary for outlets, light sockets, and lamps in an electrical system to be manufactured by the same company as the breaker panel. Industry standards give us a common framework for manufacturing and measurement. Because of these standards, the majority of irrigation parts and components are compatible and interchangeable.
