Scheduled Maintenance – Saves big Dollars?

System Maintenance

Maintaining efficient irrigation systems is one of most effective ways to reduce high irrigation system repair bills, wasted water, pollution from run-off and over-irrigating, and lower monthly water bills.

With a properly calibrated irrigation system you will improve plant health by applying the correct amount of water where it can be utilized by the landscape. You will see the benefits of a greener lawn (no more brown spots),trees, shrubs and healthier blooming flowers.

Living in the Coachella Valley, a desert climate means without adequate irrigation, your yard will not thrive. Unfortunately, despite the fact that irrigation water is the single most important factor in the health of your yard, most property owners don’t have their irrigation systems property adjusted for optimum efficiency.

Landscape irrigation uses 50 percent or more of the water you use. A poorly maintained irrigation system means that much of this water you are paying for never reaches its intended source and is lost to runoff, evaporation and deep watering below the root zone.

At a minimum your irrigation system should be thoroughly checked ONCE A YEAR.

The Basics of Irrigation Maintenance are:

  • Check controller for proper operation, check the timer programming.
  • Check electric valves for automatic start & stop.
  • Check spray heads and rotors.
  • Visually inspect drip emitters.
  • Check mainline & zone lines for any leaks.
  • Check the connection on all wires.
  • Turn on each zone and inspect for system damage.
