Complete Irrigation Service
Another important phase in the care of your lawn is to make sure it is properly watered. Too much can be harmful, to little does no good at all. Did you know that it’s actually better to water your yard fewer time a week but for longer periods? It saturates the ground and as the yard dries out the root systems must go deeper to find the water. Deeper roots in turn make for healthier and stronger grass. When you water for short periods more frequently the roots remain shallow and over time the grass will become thinner and weak
Did you also know that when a sprinkler system isn’t running its best can actually cost you money? An average sprinkler head sprays 1 ½ gallons of water per minute, there are at least 7 heads per zone, each zone runs for 15 minutes. That’s 157.5 gallons of water needed to run one zone of irrigation. If you have 6 zones that’s 945 gallons of water to run the irrigation system one time. You see where we are going with this! If you sprinkler system isn’t running it’s best you are literally wasting your money! When considering who is going to repair and adjust your system keep this in mind and ask yourself if they are costing you money or saving you money. This is the difference between a good service technician and a great one!
Not all Sprinkler Repair companies are the same! Choosing a professional company can be hard with so many fly by night, unlicensed, low priced con artist selling themselves as experts. How do you avoid making the mistake of hiring one of these companies? Pick a tried & true, fully licensed and insured, guarantee giving, honest and trustworthy company.
Here is a general plan of our sprinkler service programs.
- Scope of Work: Inspection of the entire sprinkler system for problems. Standard repairs will be made during the inspections. (Note: If major repairs are needed, work is billed as time plus material)
- Schedule of Work:
- Option 1 (our most popular): 4 standard system inspections. The 1st in March when the system is first turned on and inspected. The 2nd and 3rd inspections are in summer months when the timer is adjusted for the changing weather conditions and any needed repairs are made. The 4th and final inspection is usually in November when the entire system is winterized and shut down to prevent damage during freezes.
- Option 2: Monthly system inspections. These inspections start in March when the system is first turned on. It is then inspected every month till November when the system is winterized.
- Service calls can also be requested at any time between normal visits or as needed to adjust or repair any issues that may arise.
