The best way to take care of your home lawn sprinkler system is to have it checked and adjusted periodically during the season. The reasons for this are that the weather and watering needs of your lawn and plantings are constantly changing. Temperature and seasonal timing plays a big part in this and causes those watering needs to fluctuate greatly. Your system will require multiple visits each year to keep in peak working order according to seasonal weather changes. Supergreen Irrigation offers several yearly service maintenance plan options for your budget. We will visit your home and service the system and leave you a receipt when the work is complete.
Spring is a time when your entire property begins to wake up and come alive. That requires sun, heat and lots of water. At each of our service visits we will check the entire operations of the system; we will adjust the watering program controller according to time of year and any recent weather phenomena’s that deserve attention. We will check all the heads and adjust for proper operation and water volume metering and pressure. We will also check all valves, electrical. We will send to you our yearly work agreement for review and ask that you get it back to us so we can schedule your service visits for best timing.
SPRING START –UP OF LAWN SPRINKLER SYSTEM: This service involves starting up the system for the summer, known as a spring start up. This service involves turning on the water, setting the clock, adjusting and repairing any components, valves, heads, lines in the system that need addressing, and running the system, making sure everything is working at top efficiency.
EARLY SUMMER CHECK UP: This service is done around June when it begins to warm up and involves resetting the clock program for longer watering times. The temperatures are coming up and require more water to be applied. This service involves our technicians also making sure that nothing has changed in terms of coverage. Sometimes as your plants grow they have a tendency to block the heads and the water coverage. This is an important time of the year for your plants growth cycle. Your systems filters will also be checked and flushed from contaminants. All smart systems will be checked and reset if necessary including, any rain sensors, weather monitoring sensors etc. When we leave the system will be perfect.
LATE SUMMER INSPECTIONOF LAWN SPRINKLERS: This inspection is usually done in the early fall season and it is also a very important time of the year for your watering schedule to change. As the temperatures cool down for the fall season your plants require a lot less water. This service will help you save a lot from your water bill. We usually cut back the times of watering by 30-40 percent. This also helps prevent any fungus and over watering issues. Overwatering your lawn, shrubs and flowers will do more harm than good and can cause a whole host of cultural problems including disease.
WINTERIZATION: We also call this service our fall blow–out because it requires us to use a very strong compressor to blow all the water out of the entire system to prevent freezing and cracking of your systems components. When water freezes it expands and nothing can stop this expansion. Any water left in your lines or systems components over the winter will rupture and cause very expensive repairs. We generally do not make any repairs to the system during this time as the system will not be used for the next 5 months.
