I am working on building an automated indoor watering system.
I think I have most of the basics covered and I am now moving on to the details.
My plan for actual water delivery is to have a "large" pipe with a series of smaller pipes branching off the larger pipe. Each small pipe will have a valve of some form that will be controlled from the Arduino.
Basically the idea is to determine which valves need to be opened, then open them. Once all valves are open, turn on pump for a set period. Then turn off pump and close valves.
So here is my question of the day. What would be the best method of opening and closing the valves? Also does anyone have a suggestion as to what type of valve I should use and where to get them.
