Sprinkler Springtime Start Up

Springtime Sprinkler Tune-Up

As the temperatures warm and the lawn and garden begins to thaw, there is no better time than springtime to make sure your automatic sprinkler system is ready for another season of efficient lawn and garden watering.   Just a few simple steps will go a long way towards saving water, money and help prevent a mid-summer landscape catastrophe at home.


When our technicians come out to start up your system they will do the following:

Run a check of the irrigation controls and programs. This includes springtime controller maintenancedusting away the cobwebs on the timer, making sure the date and time is correct, and that the settings are appropriate for your landscape’s watering needs.


Inspect the sprinkler heads. This includes looking for signs of debris that may be blocking the flow of water. Checking and adjusting spray patterns making sure all the important areas are getting full coverage. Also, we don’t want to be watering the driveway or house.


Rain Bird nozzles and spray heads are designed to withstand normal wear and tear, but are no match to errant lawn mowers, landscape work and chewing animals (etc). Our technicians will replace any broken heads, nozzles, valves, or pipes. Please keep in mind; sometimes leaks do not show up right away. It is not uncommon to repair a leak and a few days later another leak presents itself. This is due to that area now getting full water pressure.


If you have us come out to tune up your system in February we recommend that you run through the test program on your controller at least once a week. We understand you may not be using your irrigation system very much this time of year. Testing your system will give you a chance to check things over and make sure there are no issues. Remember, service repairs are covered by a 30 day limited warranty (valves and leaks not included). Checking your system once a week will ensure that all repairs are holding and working properly.
