A well-maintained sprinkler system lets you get the most out of your yard without costing a fortune in water bills. It also helps your yard stay greener, even during the hottest days of the summer. Learn how to care for your Arlington irrigation systems all year long with the help of your irrigation company.
Adjusting or Replacing Old Parts
Occasionally, your Hydro-Tech irrigation systems will need to be adjusted to keep your yard properly watered. Sprinkler heads have a tendency to get jostled out of place, or you may accidentally run over one with a lawn mower. In some cases, you may be able to simply move the sprinkler head back into place. You’ll want to make sure it’s positioned so that all of your lawn and gardens receive sufficient water, and so the water isn’t wasted on your driveway or sidewalk. If it’s damaged beyond repair, contact your irrigation company to install replacement heads. You should also contact your irrigation company if you notice that the water pressure in your sprinklers is too high or too low. The wrong water pressure can make it difficult for your yard to receive all the water it needs.
Winterizing Your Sprinklers
In many states, it’s important to have your sprinklers winterized before the frost hits in the winter. This process removes any excess water from your sprinklers by draining or blowing it out of your system. Otherwise, this water could freeze, expand, and damage your pipes during the winter, which could result in costly repairs in the spring. Ask your irrigation company about winterizing your sprinklers today!
Annual Sprinkler Maintenance
Your sprinkler company can also help you get your Arlington irrigation systems back online once springtime rolls around. This is the best way to make sure there are no leaks or other issues with your sprinklers. Many sprinkler leaks go undetected for years, since they occur underground and show very few signs of their presence. However, they can be responsible for hundreds or thousands of gallons of water going to waste over the course of the summer. Instead, have your sprinkler company inspect your entire system at the beginning of each spring season, once the frost has disappeared.
