What is the Benefit of an Irrigation System?
When looking to properly maintain your lawn and outdoor landscaping, we recommend using an irrigation system. It is very easy to overwater your property by forgetting the water is on or not properly understanding the technique needed to water the grass and landscaping. When using an irrigation system, you are able to program a watering schedule and remove the worry associated with remembering your watering needs. The timing will be based on the seasonal needs of the grass and shrubbery. There are also sensors indicating when it is raining or if the soil is too saturated, also saving you water and money.
Will My Irrigations System Need Maintenance?
As with any other appliance or piece of technology you own, irrigation systems always have the potential to not perform properly. There are many outside factors that can cause damage to any part of the system such as lawnmowers, children playing, lawn furniture and even the elements. It is important that the system is checked and maintained on a regular basis. This includes:
- Ensuring the controller or panel has the correct date and time
- Checking the water pressure for each zone
- Checking the alignment of the sprinkler heads to be sure the water is directed in the correct area
- Be sure there is nothing obstructing the water, such as overgrown shrubs or lawn ornaments
- Check the nozzles to be sure they are not clogged
