Have you recently moved into a new home? The housing market over the past year has been booming, and many families are moving into new homes. Whether moving into a newly built or existing home, there is always a learning curve with becoming acclimated to the home. This is typically seen more often with an existing home, as it can be tricky to determine how old the roof, appliances, and even the irrigation system is and when it might need to be replaced. Things like appliances and a heating system might be easier to determine, where an irrigation system can be a little tricky, especially if using a system is new to you. Even if you have lived in your home for many years, it might be time to get a maintenance check on your irrigation system to ensure that everything is working properly.
Lifespan of an Irrigation System
If you are unsure of the age of your irrigation system, we recommend scheduling a maintenance call, and we can determine if any repairs or simple upgrades are needed. It is unusual that a system will completely break down. It is more common that a system will need parts replaced. If the system is on the older side, you might want to make some upgrades to utilize updated technology that is seen with newer irrigation systems.
Changes in Landscaping
Have you recently made changes to your landscaping? For any adjustment, whether it be the addition of a garden, new flower beds, or planting new shrubs, you will need to determine if your irrigation system needs to be adjusted as well. A new sprinkler head might need to be added, or we may have to move one of your existing sprinklers. You want to be sure that any landscaping changes you make to your yard are being watered properly.
Increase in Water Bill
Has your water bill increased with no explanation? If you have checked all of your interior water sources, it is now time to evaluate your exterior water sources. It is possible that there is a leak with your irrigation system that can be easily remedied.
