        A:  I am NOT a landscape lighting expert since I have never wired landscape wiring as SOLAR is so often used for yard lights, but the ONLY reason I can see to not use this wire is if a particular light (or whatever) needs more voltage/amperage than the wire can safely carry.

        by|May 6, 2020

          A:  The lighting would need to be low-voltage, low-power lighting. You would need to verify the wire is rated for the amperage and voltage used. Using a sprinkler control for lighting is probably not practical. Sprinkler valves are very low power. Again, need to check if amperage and voltage is compatible. Good luck!

          by|May 5, 2020

            A:  You need to check what lights will be hooked up to it. Some landscape lights use another type of cable: 2-conductor, heavier gauge, where multiple fixtures can be attached to a single cable with a pinch connection. If you use the 5-strand irrigation cable, you must run a cable to each light, unless you do a lot of cutting and splicing.

              Q:How many valves can i connect?

              A:  Your can connect four valves per length of wire. The five wires gives you one common and four control circuits.

                A:  Each valve needs two wires connected to it: one "hot" and one "common". In a low voltage system, which a sprinkler system is, there is not a "ground" per say. The same "common" connects to every valve in parallel and to the "common" terminal on the timer. Therefore, if you have 5 wires, you can connect 4 valves. Color does not really matter. I use the white as a "common" and the green as one of the "hots".

                  A:  Four valves. One for the return (ground) and four for power.

                    Good quality wire. The 18 gage wire is a solid copper wire insulated with 5 different colors of individual wires with a heavy exterior jacket that is rated for burying in the ground. Even though I only used 2 wires for a single zone in sprinkler system, I like that I have the extra 3 wires already buried for future zones of sprinkling.

                    Good quality wire that worked well for me when remotely installing a four valve sprinkler system, using the while wire as the common. That uses up all 5 wires, so bear that in mind if you're planning a bigger system.

                    Not a lot of options. When you need it, you need it. But it's good stuff.
