Time to Upgrade Your Residential Sprinkler System?

A residential sprinkler system for your home is a great idea, for your convenience and the environment too. At Future Green Irrigation, our systems are designed to be efficient with proven savings of up to 45%.

  • Water conservation – it’s much more efficient than watering with a hose, which typically causes run-off. Research has shown that an underground system is the most efficient use of water.
  • A sprinkler system can operate on a set schedule, and can be timed to coincide with any local water restrictions (watering on odd/even days etc.) or to continue regularly while you’re on holidays.

Time to Upgrade?
Irrigation technology is always improving and upgrading, just like any other. If your underground sprinkler system is more than 10 years old, chances are it needs upgrading and there are a variety of reasons why.

  • Newer systems are more user-friendly as well as more eco-conscious
  • Upgrading can save you money

A Professional Inspection
If your irrigation system is more than 10 years old, it should at least be reviewed by a licensed contractor and evaluated for efficiency. There are some clear signs that your system, no matter how old it is, isn’t operating as well as it should, and other considerations that should point to a professional inspection.

  • How well is it keeping the area uniformly watered? Are there poorly draining areas, or overly dry areas?
  • Are your water bills unusually high? Have they shown a steady or sudden increase that you can’t attribute to any other cause?
  • Has your landscaping changed at all, i.e. moved, removed or added flower beds, trees or shrubs? Have you added a deck or patio? Changes to your landscaping can change your water requirements, meaning your older system’s design may no longer be adequate.

An audit and inspection by a licensed contractor from the Future Green team can inspect the entire system to determine if there are any leaks or other problems as well as suggest upgrades to pipes, sprinkler heads, controlling and programming mechanisms.
