Having an irrigation system in place is essential to keeping your lawn hydrated in the Florida climate. Evaluate the condition of your current irrigation system because, over time, it needs to be upgraded. Keeping your system up to date helps it work efficiently and saves you money. Pricing for updates will vary depending on the size of your irrigation system and the number of stations necessary.
A Few Types of Upgrades
Remote Monitoring. There are irrigation systems that function by wireless remote using Wi-Fi. You’ll have the ability to control your irrigation system from anywhere. Even if you’re on vacation miles away, you can make adjustments to your irrigation system. The controllers link up via a cellular connection, and like a cell phone, you may have to pay for a monthly subscription.
Irrigation Sensors. You can add sensors to your stations to check various conditions in your yard. They can be programmed to detect the weather outside, or they can be synced to a Wi-Fi connection and get updates from weather stations in your area. Also, the sensors can function as a warning system to alert you of any problems with the irrigation system. If there is a clog or flooding in your lawn, you can get the problem fixed quickly and avoid expensive repairs.
Controllers. One of the most straightforward upgrades is having a controller to maintain your irrigation system. You can set the irrigation to start and stop at certain times throughout the day to maintain your lawn. Instead of watering your yard all at once, you can program the controller to water the grass in sections at the times you designate.
After you have set your upgrades for your irrigation system, daily tasks will be more efficient. You can maintain your lawn on a schedule that works for you and control it from anywhere. Call us today to speak with one of our irrigation specialists.
