The FIMCO Hydro Indexing Valve is the modern, no worry way to insure smooth working, dependable service for all sprinkler, wastewater and aquaponics systems. The Hydro-Indexing Valve is activated by sufficient water supply being turned on and off therefore no electrical wiring is required to the valve. All that is needed for a totally automatic system is a controller to turn on and off the water supply (pump or solenoid). The Hydro Indexing Valve operates under most all water conditions and is available in three styles to enable the valve to index properly under normal, low, or high water conditions. FIMCO Hydro Indexing Valves are preassembled with a sequencing cam depending on how many zones are on a particular sprinkler system. The cam can be easily removed and replaced by a different cam if sections are added or eliminated. FIMCO Hydro-Indexing Valves come in 7 series.

The Zone Indicator
A new optional feature to the FIMCO Hydro Indexing Valves is the Zone Indicator. Now you no longer need to guess which zone will come on next. This simple little button on top of the cam has an arrow which points to the active zone. The zone indicator is great to use when testing or performing maintenance on your irrigation system. When the pump is turned off, just simply index the cam to your desired section by pushing down on the zone indicator. When the pump is turned back on the system will automatically start on that section.
