Residential Irrigation – Avoid DIY Regret

Installing your own sprinkler system might seem like a good way to save money. Dig a few holes, some outdoor plumbing – you’re handy, so what’s the problem?

The problem is that improper installation can result in a faulty system that just doesn’t get the job done right. A sprinkler system that’s properly installed will save you money as it conserves water and ensures that the water is used most efficiently.

If you’ve moved into a home with an existing system, you may not know whether your sprinkler system was professionally installed or not. Improper installation may result in many issues; here are some of the common signs that your system isn’t functioning as it should because of design flaws and that you may be wasting water:

  • Your sprinklers are operating in the rain
  • Water that puddles or runs off – i.e. it’s not being absorbed into the ground
  • Water spraying in the wrong direction or angle
  • Water geysers due to missing nozzle or a broken sprinkler
  • Water misting around the sprinklers from over pressure
  • Runoff from excessive irrigation
  • Plant growth obstructing the sprinkler
  • A weak stream of water that may be due to clogging or inadequate pressure
  • The edge of one sprinkler spray doesn’t match the next, or overlaps it
  • The system is watering driveways, sidewalks, streets
  • Water is leaking from valves

Professional Design & Installation
Professional installation takes into account many different issues that can affect the operation of your sprinkler system, including the specifications of your lot and plant growth, knowledge of water conservation technology as well as any applicable local regulations and restrictions on water use. A professional design is the key to solving problems before they happen.
