SACRAMENTO SPRINKLER INSTALLATION
The high stakes of DIY installation projects are not worth what it will take to remediate self-inflicted property damage or sustained bodily harm. Without a proper strategy for laying out an irrigation plan or the professional experience to execute the installation, the result can be costly.
One common mistake DIY consumers often commit, for example, is overestimating mainline tubing capacity. This will inevitably affect water flow when the appropriate calculations are not made. The running length should always be in proportion with the flow rate, which is measured in gallons per hour. Miscalculations, in this case, can result in water pressure inefficiencies.
It is better if a licensed technician designs and installs the irrigation system. Every property has a unique set of watering needs. Only individuals with years of training and experience should be trusted to determine what kind of system layout, irrigation components, and flow rate are required for a given outdoor space.
BENEFITS OF SPRAY IRRIGATION
Spray sprinklers take the effort out of watering lawns, gardens, and other landscapes. With an automated system, there is no need to gradually water each plant in a yard or to periodically move a hose from one irrigation zone to another. Some systems even have digital controllers and sophisticated sensors, which remove the guesswork in planning how and when to water each part of a property.
Spray units can also irrigate large areas with greater efficiency than manual systems. When installed, the sprinkler heads are strategically placed to cover a wide area, without overlapping other irrigation zones. This ensures an even distribution of water throughout the property.
Drip irrigation systems, by comparison, only cover small designated areas within a landscape. These modern devices rely on a tube network that produces slow “drips” of water to irrigate trees, shrubs, or flowers. Therefore, most experts recommend the use of spray sprinklers for wide areas with grass lawns and drip irrigation systems for yards with garden beds, vegetables, and container plants.
SPRINKLER SYSTEM INSTALLATION
01. Assessment – The first step is to assess the scope of the project and to get a sense of what kind of system is required, including any price or landscape limitations the customer may have. Our expert technicians will determine “irrigation zones” and recommend what kind of mechanical components and flow rate is needed. They will also offer “smart” features that further automate the watering process.
02. Estimate – Once the scope of the project is determined and agreed upon, our licensed technicians will issue a cost estimate. This includes any variables or add-ons the customer may have selected. The idea is to provide a complete sense of how much you are likely to pay for the installation and possible maintenance of the spray sprinkler system.
03. Installation – Once contracted, the installation usually takes less than a week to complete. Depending on the size of the property, as well as any local regulations or ordinances that need to be followed, it may take a bit longer. We usually follow up after the job to make sure the irrigation system is operating efficiently.
LAWN SPRINKLER REPAIR
The best way to reduce system disrepairs is to regularly inspect the unit for signs of failure. That means checking for system leaks or broken lines, and making sure the sprinkler heads are always aimed in the right direction.
Look for puddles or patches of grass that seem drier than others. These signs indicate there is an uneven distribution of water, resulting from faulty sprinkler heads, leaking components, or inoperable system zones. It is also a good idea to run the system in the afternoon instead of the morning or night, as it is harder to see how moisture is being distributed at those times.
If you discover an evident system malfunction, call our licensed technicians to make a sprinkler repair on the unit. This is especially important if you have a complicated irrigation device with Wi-Fi, weather sensors, or other “smart” features. To avoid unexpected and costly disrepairs, we highly recommend you invest in a preventive maintenance plan to safeguard the equipment.
