Just like your car or home, your irrigation system needs periodic maintenance for it to continue operating like the day it was new. Our trained technicians will assess the system, inspect its components and provide recommendations on how to get your system operating optimally. It could be a relatively simple tune up adjusting and fine-tuning existing components. Otherwise we may recommend a more comprehensive system refurbishment.
Depending on the age and condition of your system we might recommend upgrades that can improve performance. Irrigation components produced in the last few years are more efficient than ever. This makes retrofitting new technology into older systems easier. Some of our suggested upgrades to your irrigation system could include the following.
Over time, water will wear the opening of sprinkler nozzles. This changes the original characteristics engineered to provide uniform application. For this reason, we recommend you change sprinkler nozzles at least every 10 years. This easily done and involves replacing the nozzle at the tip of the sprinkler head, not the whole sprinkler itself.
Newer nozzle designs, particularly the MP nozzle series by Hunter are highly efficient. They uniformly apply water at a slower rate, minimizing surface runoff. These nozzles are easily retrofitted into most sprinkler heads that have been installed over the past 25 years. It is possible however that older or obscure sprinkler types will not be compatible with these newer nozzles. In that case the entire sprinkler head would need to be replaced.
Based on our assessment, we might recommend adding sprinklers to areas with limited coverage. This will ensure more uniform overall application of water. You might also have an area that needed to be irrigated at one point but no longer does. In that case we can remove these sprinkler heads as they are most likely wasting water.
Over time, sprinkler heads can sink and tilt, especially if the soil around them was not compactified during installation. This can affect the trajectory of the spay, causing application to be less uniform. We can raise, lower or straighten your sprinkler heads to improve system performance.
Over the last few years, we’ve seen the rise of smart devices that make our lives easier, and your irrigation system is no exception. New smart irrigation controllers can save water by automatically adjusting for weather conditions. Our recommended product is the Hydrawise Irrigation Controller by Hunter.
Hydrawise automatically adjusts water schedules based on internet weather stations with an easy-to-use interface. This is done through its advanced Predictive Watering™ schedule. The schedule can adjust watering time and days based on weather data being sent to it. Furthermore, it can suspend watering depending on the temperature, predicted rainfall, or actual rainfall. All of this leads to significant water savings from your sprinkler system, saving you time and money.
For our sprinkler tune-up service, the technician will test the entire system, visually inspecting all the components and making necessary adjustments to existing sprinklers. The technician will gather the information needed to give you a fixed price quote for a more comprehensive system refurbishment, if it is deemed necessary.
- Irrigation Tune-up – $95 base price (up to 4 zones) + $5.50 for each additional zone
- Irrigation Refurbishment requires an initial on site visit to assess the condition of the system. This is charged the same as our tune up service. We can then provide you a detailed fixed price quote based on that assessment.
