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

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.

Just like the plumbing in your house, the engine in your car, and the teeth in your mouth, your sprinkler system requires some general checkups and maintenance to perform at its optimal level and give you the most value from your water bill. For instance, if you have a small leak in even just one sprinkler head, it can generate over 10 gallons per minute without seeming obvious. If you are losing 50% of that from leakage, running even 15 minutes can cause 75 gallons of wasted water. Our sprinkler check would reveal that leak and we can repair it and get your system back to high performance and near zero-waste. A little bit of preventative care can extend the life of your system, lower your water consumption and give you a greener and happier yard.

We can help you work together with mother nature to save money, time and resources. Email or call us for more info on a system or repair that fits your lawn care needs.
