  • Drip Irrigation is a unique type of irrigation which will save not only your plants but will save water in the process.

    It does this by evenly distributing the water, one drop at a time, evenly and directly onto the plant's roots. It can be used alongside other forms of irrigation, but on it's own it can often prove to be the best, most efficient irrigation systems to use.

    Given the generally dry conditions here in the Austin area, it's much preferred over more traditional standard methods of irrigation, which tend to waste water with excessive over-spray, as well as applying water where the plant generally doesn't need it. Additionally, water is saved by eliminating other obstructions, such as the wind while it's able to distribute water evenly and prevent any unwanted runoff or potential soil erosion.

    By focusing on the root, the plant is better able to maintain it's ideal moisture level, while creating deeper roots and abundant, fuller foliage overall. Drip irrigation in Austin can be used in home & vegetable gardens, trees, commercial landscapes, as well as greenhouses, row crops and even orchards & other trees.

    With the recent drought inevitably set to cause more restrictions on our water use in Austin, drip irrigation is one of the most effective ways to minimize evaporation while providing the optimum level of moisture, one drop at at time, for a wide range of gardening needs.

  • Springtime is Irrigation System Check-up Time

    Spring is in the air and everyone is gearing up for the season ahead. Cleaning, planting, tending to new blossoms and realizing that over the winter holidays the in-laws drove over three of your sprinkler heads lining the driveway. So along with the wonders of spring also comes the work. Now is the time for a sprinkler check! Give us a call or send us an email and we will set up a time to come by and test your system.

    We will check for obvious leaks, broken and leaking heads and nozzles. We will make sure that your controller is programmed appropriately for the season and type of turf you have. We will make minor adjustments to ensure that your sprinkler is spraying in the most effective manner. We will provide advice on any further re-piping or major adjustments that your system may require, and we will provide you with a proposal if needed.

    Why get set up on a sprinkler system service agreement?
    We service all brands of irrigation systems!
    It saves you money and keeps your landscape alive. Most people think their systems are working in top shape, but more than likely there are small flaws that over time result in dead grass and plants and water waste. Debris gets stuck in spray nozzles; heads get misaligned with foot traffic; there can be leaks that go unnoticed. Regular maintenance should be scheduled and performed either quarterly, monthly, or yearly. We highly recommend the quarterly maintenance option for most homeowners with the average sized yard, as this will keep your system in top condition.

    Your maintenance agreement will offer you:
    20% off of all materials
    Priority scheduling for emergency calls
    A 10 Point Service Assessment is performed at each visit:
    Set controller for proper seasonal settings
    Inspect sprinkler system for obvious pipe leaks
    Inspect functionality of all zone valves with volt meter at the controller
    Inspect anti-siphon device for leaks
    Inspect all zones for proper coverage
    Redirect spray to proper settings away from house, fence and concrete (if possible)
    Recommend elevating heads, moving heads, replacing heads if needing attention
    Inspect rain sensor (if applicable)
    Unclog debris from nozzles so that the water pattern is not distorted causing dry spots
    Inspect yard for possible drip conversion in beds

  • Call Taurus Irrigation to convert your sprinkler irrigation system to drip irrigation for your home and gardening needs. Drip irrigation systems are ideal for those who are ecologically mindful and or live in areas such as ours in Austin where we constantly have to worry about water rationing and conservation. Drip irrigation provides a lot of advantages for your landscape that you do not get with the typical sprinkler irrigation system sprays which require precise calibration to be able to provide efficient and effective coverage. 

    Drip irrigation conserves water, resources and money. With our drip irrigation conversions you can provide a precise watering right down to your plant's roots. Taurus Drip Irrigation delivers water to your plants slowly, so that the soil around the plants does not dry out, providing daily usage of water to the plants they support. This leads to less evaporation and run off so less water is used to keep your plants beautiful and your lawn in pristine condition.  Also, there is no evaporation while using drip!

     

    Taurus Irrigation can install drip irrigation systems in all types of landscapes, including long narrow strips, which sprinkler systems can over water or cause a lot of run off and waste. Drip irrigation is also ideal for awkwardly shaped areas, trees, shrubs or gardens. Drip irrigation can be installed buried beneath the surface or beneath mulch so that less evaporation occurs and gardens, grass, trees, or shrubs are watered where they are needed at the root without wasting water and costing you more money. Why assist or help pay to water your neighbors plants, and yard? Do you see water running off from areas of your yard to the street or driveway yet still have patches of your yard that are dead or barren. Are there plants that are just not getting the water coverage that is needed and are slowly wilting? Do you have to remember to run out regularly to water parts of your yard, garden, or plants that the sprinkler system currently installs cant reach? Or have you lost plants because of fungi or other problems that over watering can cause? Why worry or concern yourself with any of this when you can have Taurus Irrigation convert all or part of your property to drip, the best way to water your yard, garden, plants, shrubs and trees? We can provide your property with the right amount of water, at the right times, slowly and consistently, with little to no waste. Drip irrigation delivers straight to the roots where it is needed most for all your botanical needs.

      Using Common Sense (with sensors)

      Remember the freeze we just had? How many of you had to remember to run into the garage to turn off the system as you were in the middle of dinner, or away from home? Well, the great thing about having a rain and freeze sensor added to your sprinkler controller: it does the remembering and work for you!

      Rain and rain/freeze sensors are becoming "must have" components for irrigation systems these days. These sensors save time, improve system performance and conserve precious water. The high quality, easy to use device provides superior responsiveness to rainfall and cold temperatures and suspends irrigation immediately during rain and freeze events without your intervention.
