MCKINNEY SPRINKLER MAINTENANCE
Every spring, thousands of individuals turn on their automatic sprinkler systems. The typical homeowner presumes that the irrigation system will always function flawlessly as designed. Thus, they do little else to ensure if the system is working properly. However, like any other piece of equipment, some sprinkler service is necessary.
You need a solid maintenance plan for your sprinkler system during the warm weather months to keep it operating at its optimum level. Enlisting the services of a professional to perform maintenance for your irrigation system, will offer you convenience and peace of mind.
Ideally, the property owner should check the system every two or three months, and professional upkeep must be performed once every year. This maintenance schedule will ensure your irrigation device works efficiently year after year, protecting both your investment and landscape.
LACK OF MAINTENANCE ISSUES
Failure to perform regular maintenance could result in myriads of minor issues and could potentially damage your system permanently. A poorly maintained irrigation unit will also be a detriment to the upkeep of your lawn because most of the water will never reach the intended zones.
The initial signs of a poorly maintained system are damaged, clogged, or misaligned heads that lead to inadequate water pressure. Besides that, the spray patterns will not be uniform and can create swampy, overwatered spots, and areas where water will be applied unevenly or inadequately.
In the long run, failing to maintain and tune-up your sprinkler system regularly can result in leaking valves, broken or missing heads, clogged nozzles, seal leaks, sunken or titled heads, broken pipes, and much more. These major issues could result in wastage of natural resources, high water bills, and a total overhaul of the irrigation equipment.
IRRIGATION SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
Maintaining your sprinkler system means checking and identifying problems quickly so they can be addressed before they turn into costly repairs. The maintenance process of the sprinkler system begins with an audit that should be conducted annually. The objective of this audit is to correct inefficiencies and maximize the general effectiveness of the system. Once the problem is located, maintenance is scheduled. Our upkeep services usually include:
- Cleaning nozzles, emitters, and filters
- Straightening sprinkler heads
- Inspecting wires on the controller and values
- Searching for external leaks and broken pipes
- Checking backflow prevention device
- Updating controller settings, times, and dates
WINTERIZATION AND SPRING STARTUP
Freezing temperatures present a major threat to your irrigation system. The pipes and other components are at risk when temperatures drop below 35 degrees Fahrenheit in McKinney, TX. During winter, water that remains in the irrigation system could freeze up and cause the pipes, valves, or sprinklers to crack. Damage caused during winter to an underground system could be a nightmare as it may require a large portion of your yard to be dug out to locate the problem. Hence, your system needs to have all the water blown out before winter.
Come springtime, when Mother Nature cannot hold up her end of the bargain, it is time to turn on the sprinkler system. Before starting the system, it is very important to conduct a visual inspection to check the sprinkler heads, valves, and backflow prevention device. After confirming all points are in good condition, it is time to start the irrigation equipment. Locate the main shutoff valve and turn on the water slowly to gradually pressurize the system and avoid bursting important mechanical parts.
