Spring Time at Last: Time to Start Up Your Irrigation System

As we in the GTA emerge from a nasty winter that just doesn’t seem to want to quit, remember that while your lawn goes dormant to survive the big freeze, your residential irrigation system can’t. The extreme cold we experienced over the last six months may have resulted in a litany of damage, including:

• Cracked pipes
• Damaged, broken or missing sprinkler heads
• Clogged pipes or sprinkler heads
• Damaged connections between sprinkler heads and pipes

Even the smallest of cracks can lead to waste and/or a loss of water pressure. Early spring is a natural time to evaluate your system and get it into optimal working order so that you benefit from the savings of water and money.

There’s a lot to inspect and to consider along with obvious or visible damage, including:

• The direction of the sprinkler flow – is it still on the lawn and not on the driveway/road/house?
• The settings on an automated or Smart Water system – are they still optimized for existing conditions?

Ice, snow and frost can shift the ground along with your irrigation equipment. No matter how well it’s been installed, over time and with the kind of extreme swings in weather that we now seem to see routinely in the Toronto area, virtually any component of your sprinkler system can be vulnerable to damage or accidental alteration.

There’s A Lot to Consider
Those are just a few of the considerations that go into making sure that your irrigation system is in the best possible running condition. But are you getting the most that you should out of your sprinkler system? Spring is also the ideal time to think about upgrading to the latest in irrigation technology.

It’s not a matter of having the latest toys – these environmentally friendly innovations save money and conserve water as they keep your lawn well fed. They include:

• Sprinkler head and nozzle design that deliver water directly to the soil virtually without runoff
• Smart systems that monitor and adjust for weather and moisture conditions
