Your One-Stop Sprinkler Shop
Whether you need installation or repair work, you can count on us. We are truly a one-stop shop for all sprinkler and irrigation work. Our technicians fix pipes, repair cracked manifolds, and solve problems with shut-off valves.
Starting up your sprinkler system for the first time can be complicated. Leave it to the professionals! When turning on a sprinkler for the season, we thoroughly check for any hidden leaks in underground lines, heads, backflow valves, and other components. Fixing leaks before the season begins will save you costly water bills. We also set up your timer, upon request. It is usually best to water your lawn in the early morning when the ground is cool and moist. This ensures your grass is not put into shock and allows you to resolve any malfunctions before you leave for work in the morning.
With professional sprinkler installation and reliable equipment, your system will stand the test of time. We use quality brands, such as:
- Hunter Industries
- Rain Bird
- Green Lawn
Is a Sprinkler System Necessary?
A sprinkler system is important for anyone who wants a lush, healthy lawn. Sprinklers ensure uniform water coverage and eliminate brown spots during the summer. Scheduled watering also ensures your grass is not over-watered. If you notice any brown spots, it could mean poor workmanship or shoddy installation. Our team makes sure every installation is flawless.
Before we begin an installation, we check the psi (pounds per square inch) of your water supply to ensure adequate water pressure. A good water pressure for a home ranges from 50 to 80 psi. Lower pressure will require more stations and increase the cost of installation. We also check that you have an adequate sprinkler branch pipe. Sprinkler systems require a larger volume of water than a regular house faucet because most systems supply water for six heads. A typical house only has a 3/4" water supply, but a 1" pipe is preferable for sprinkler systems.
