Soaker system operation for closed loop horizontal heat exchanger
I have a new residential water to air system that I am installing. 4 ton system. System is sized and installed correctly I just more or less wanted to experiment with this.
This is a 4 pipe system with an average depth of 7ft and 700ft of trench. After installing all the geo pipe I ran a 3/4" pipe over top of the system piping in S pattern holes drilled every 18" or so.
I am going to use a 24 volt Taco Geothermal valve for on off control of water. I'm thinking of using a 7 day programmable WIFI thermostat and set up a schedule for a few hours once a week to water. House has a variable speed well pump and I plan on only using 4 gallons a minute when watering so homeowners won't notice any water use noise or reduced water pressure. With the WIFI stat I can always turn it off remotely without having to visit site, I already will have a few other WIFI stats on the job.
I have never installed or used a soaker hose, anyone out there have any control tricks or things they have learned that has worked well?
