When it comes to installing an irrigation system, there are a lot of different variables to keep in mind. We’ve listed out some of the most common questions for new owners of irrigation systems, so you can hit the ground running and get the most out of your lawn.
Is my home’s sprinkler system working properly?
One of the most common reasons people hire professional irrigation contractors are related to their systems not being able to provide proper coverage throughout the yard. Water efficiency experts suggest that homeowners keep a close eye on how much water is being used by each zone of their sprinklers so they know if improve coverage is necessary.
What are the benefits of having my sprinkler system inspected?
When you have your system inspected by a professional, you will be able to understand whether or not there are any repairs that need to be done, if the lines are leaking and even if they are working properly. It can be difficult for homeowners to find out when leaks are occurring simply because they do not know where all of their pipes are located in their yard. A contractor will be able to identify potential problems efficiently so that solutions can quickly be found.
Are there times when I should consider hiring an irrigation contractor immediately?
One instance when homeowners should consider an immediate repair is when there has been unexpected rainfall. If water pressure becomes too high in the line, you will be able to avoid pipe breakage and leaks by having your system shut off.
What type of repairs can I make on my own?
Watering timers, sprinkler heads that are placed too high or too low and defective sprayers on the nozzle are all common issues that can be repaired by homeowners themselves. It is also simple to adjust the timer for your system if it is not working once you understand how to do so. However, it is important to remember that if you are unsure about any aspect of your irrigation system, then hiring a professional contractor will likely be the best solution.
How much does it cost to hire an irrigation company?
The specific rate will vary depending upon who you hire, but the total will be based on the time that is necessary for them to complete your job. This largely depends on the size of your property as well.
