Yeah you can.
But the pipes get crusty with sand and they are harder to cut and keep clean.
The green retic glue will still work even with a little water on it so you don’t need the two surfaces perfectly dry and clean – although that is preferable.
The biggest challenge of rainy days is definitely the sand that sticks to the pipes but just carry a towel and wipe the ends before joining and it should be fine!
If your retic controller is dead, giving you trouble or just difficult to operate then give me a call!
I am based in Yanchep but service the northern suburbs. I carry a range of boxes onboard at all times but generally recommend the Hunter X Core for reliability, ease of use and value for money.
The Hunter has a two year warranty, a back up battery that will last 5-7 years and is remote control enabled (purchased separately).
It is also easy to use and comes with a lockable casing.
Prices as at March 2017 are $375 for a 4 station controller, $385.00 for a 6 station and $415 for an 8 station. These prices include GST and I am a licensed electrician so you can rest assured the job will be done safely and competently.
