Spring Start Up

Get started the right way! Call us now at 402-934-7900 or contact Digital Rain Sprinkler Service . sprinkler-spruce-up-infographic

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.

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.

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. We check to make sure the controller still has its program from the last season and replace the batteries.
  • Adjust rain sensor setting

Remember, it is always best to hire a qualified professional contractor when performing tasks like Spring Start-Up. Digital Rain Sprinkler System technicians are experts in proper sprinkler system requirements. Our maintenance schedule will ensure a water-efficient system and years of trouble-free operation.

Sprinkler System Spring Start-Up Checklist

save time

With the warmer weather here, it’s time to begin your sprinkler system start up and start watering again. Turning on your sprinkler system for the season is a little more involved than just flipping a switch or turning a handle. This is the best time to run through the system and adjust or replace any misaligned or broken heads.

Run the entire sprinkler system, one zone at a time. As you do this, check for:

  • Clogged nozzles and sprinkler heads.
  • Signs of leakage, especially damage to sprinkler heads or piping which could have occurred over the winter.
  • Accurate spray patterns. Your sprinkler heads may need to be adjusted so they water your landscape and not sidewalks or pavement.

  • Ensure each zone is providing complete water coverage and adjust individual heads as needed.
  • If you have a rain sensor they will check on it to make it works properly.
