Summer, here we come! With warmer weather on the way, it’s time to begin your sprinkler system start up and prepare to start watering again.
When should you have your sprinkler system turned on? Scheduling your spring start-up depends on the weather conditions and your individual watering needs. Usually any time after the third week of March is a safe bet for starting up your sprinkler system. Please call early in the season to schedule your lawn sprinkler start-up; the best time to tune up your system is before you need it.
We recommend our spring start-up service to get your sprinkler and irrigation system up and running for the season. Winter ground heaving, snowfall, and snow removal can all take a toll on the functions of your sprinkler heads. Our Spring Start-up service inspects for all the issues winter leaves behind.
In order to ensure there are no water leaks, breaks or cracks, or clogs in the systems, irrigation systems should ideally be checked annually, usually in spring or early summer.
- Close all drain valves and plugs.
- Reopen shut off valves.
- Check main for leaks and damages.
- Go through each individual zone and adjust or clean heads for proper operation and coverage.
- Set control timer for spring season watering.
- Check to make sure the controller still has its program from the last season and replace the batteries.
- Adjust rain sensor setting.
