Sprinkler System Checkup, Maintenance & Tune-Up Services
Maintenance, Repair and Tune-Up Services for Sprinkler Systems
Every spring hundreds of thousands of homeowners and commercial property owners turn on their sprinkler systems hoping that every part is working just as it did the previous fall. As soon as a sprinkler head doesn’t pop up right, or rotor head doesn’t turn correctly, or there is no power to the sprinklers, it’s time for you to call in the experts.
Like a car motor that has sat idle for several months, your sprinkler irrigation system needs to be properly tuned and checked before trying to water any part of your landscape. Our licensed sprinkler technicians use a system of tests to ensure your sprinklers, controller, valves, and circuits are all working properly.
Our Tune-Up Process
- Activate the system, zone by zone, to ensure all zones are turning on/off.
- Inspect the rain and freeze sensor, if present, for proper operation.
- Check the controller’s backup battery for proper functionality.
- Program the controller’s settings for seasonality and any watering restrictions.
- Examine each zone for any broken or malfunctioning sprinkler heads (head replacement/repairs are an additional fee).
- Adjust any misaligned heads for proper coverage.
- Clean and adjust spray nozzles to ensure optimal spray coverage.
- Examine the system and yard for dry spots and and possible leaks.
- Identify all heads that need to be raised, lowered, or moved.
- Present diagnostic findings, and make recommendations for repairs and/or improvements.
After we’ve done a full checkup and performed any necessary sprinkler maintenance on your system, we’ll run it through several cycles. We want to make sure it’s still maintaining proper water pressure, and that all the zones in the system are performing exactly as they’re supposed to.
One thing that we check on most existing sprinkler systems that other sprinkler contractors often overlook is the sprinkler climate sensor. A rain and freeze sensor prevents your sprinkler system from activating during extreme cold, high winds, and rain storms, and is required by most municipalities. The inner components of a rain and freeze sensor deteriorate over time from outdoor exposure, and commonly require either a battery replacement or adjustments to the internal sensors.
If we find that your system is demonstrating intermittent problems, we’ll immediately diagnose the issue and provide you with an estimate on any necessary sprinkler system repairs.
Commercial & Residential Sprinkler System Tune-Up
It is not uncommon for residential and business owners to forget to inspect their sprinkler systems on a regular basis. Generally speaking, most people naturally assume their sprinkler system is working as intended. It is easy to forget about a sprinkler system, especially when the controller is set to water early in the morning or late in the evening during a busy week. That being said, it’s a good idea to schedule regular sprinkler system tune-ups for both commercial and residential sprinkler systems. Scheduling tune-ups for your system will ensure that everything is functioning properly, no water is being wasted, and the time and money invested in your landscape is protected!
At Andy’s Sprinkler, Drainage & Lighting, we provide sprinkler system tune-up services for anyone seeking an efficient, controlled watering system. A tune-up of your sprinkler system ensures unobstructed flow, total control, and, when required, we will replace old sprinkler heads and nozzles for overall efficiency. Even a sprinkler needs an update over time!
Emergency Sprinkler System Checkup
As with any old appliance in our homes, sprinkler systems will age and begin to fail. These systems, while convenient and highly efficient, were not built to last forever. Most can withstand the local weather. Unfortunately, a leak or broken sprinkler head could lower the efficiency of the entire system. It pays to be proactive so we recommend scheduling regular sprinkler system checkups on occasion – at least annually – for the most benefit.
If you notice a broken sprinkler head, or perhaps your entire system is not working as it should, consider calling Andy’s Sprinkler, Drainage & Lighting for Diagnosis. Without water, grass, flowers, bushes, and trees may begin to brown, wilt, and eventually die. Any homeowner who genuinely cares about their lawn understands the need for thorough watering. A broken sprinkler system just will not suffice. Our emergency sprinkler system checkup will catch any issues in their tracks, allowing our technicians the opportunity to resolve the problem carefully and quickly!
