Irrigation System Design

When we set up a new sprinkler system, the first step is creating a design that fits your landscape. All zones must overlap to ensure coverage. Water table or well capacity is factored into the water timer cycles. We use a weather sensor to prevent irrigation watering when it’s raining.

Irrigation System Installation

Once the irrigation system design plans are in place, we begin the installation process. Irrigation system installation includes laying pipes. We use a special trenching tool to create minimal lawn disturbance! We connect the rain sensor and watering timer to the home. Then we connect the pipes to the water source. Finally, we install backflow connectors to ensure that drinking water remains clean.

Irrigation System Repairs

Automatic irrigation systems are very reliable but do require occasional repairs. Call us as soon as you see an issue. With the heat we’ve been having a lawn can burn quickly without adequate moisture. Any brown or dry area is a sign the water is not reaching its target. There might be a valve, solenoid or timer issue. An area that is too wet is also bad for the lawn. Call us right away for irrigation repairs.  Finally, water pressure changes indicate a water source, valve or pump problem. All of these should be fixed right away to avoid lawn damage. We fix all irrigation system brands.

Why Your Irrigation System Needs Fall Shutdown and Spring Startup Visits

Beautiful healthy lawn

Winter’s snow, ice, wind and cold air can take its toll on your irrigation system. Water naturally stays in the sprinkler system pipes between cycles. When the temperatures drop the water will turn to ice, potentially breaking the system. Irrigation systems must be winterized to avoid seasonal damage. We offer a yearly fall blow out service, which includes draining all of the water from your system before winter. This ensures that the pipes don’t freeze during cold weather. Come spring, our start-up services allow us to make sure that the winter weather hasn’t done any damage to your system before you turn it on for the season.

Spring Irrigation Startup

We ensure that your irrigation system is ready to be turned on for the season and assess any damage caused by winter’s rough weather  

When you startup your sprinkler system in the spring, you must be aware of any potential damage the system may have endured during the harsh winter months. Improper startup can cause costly damage to your irrigation system. That’s why you should always have the experts at Firmly Rooted ensure that your system is good to go before you start it up each spring.

Snow and ice can have adverse effects on your sprinkler system, as winter always poses the potential threat of leaks or damage to various parts of your irrigation system. There are many different aspects of the system that could be damaged—such as lines, valves, backflows, and heads. If you start up your irrigation system without checking these first, you could cause further damage.

At Firmly Rooted, we take all of the steps necessary to ensure that your irrigation system is safe to turn on come spring. We test water pressure, flow, and direction and also make sure that each zone is operating properly and reaching the needed components of your landscape. We will even adjust the sprinkler heads for optimal coverage.

There are other elements of your sprinkler system that are important to check too. These include the timer and rain sensor, which might also need battery replacements. We will make sure that every component of your irrigation system is ready before you turn it on for the season!

Fall Irrigation Shutdown

It is important to winterize your irrigation sprinkler system by getting a blow out every fall

A sprinkler blowout is necessary in the fall so that your irrigation system does not get ruined by winter’s harsh temperatures. The last thing that you want is your sprinkler system’s pipes cracking. This does not make for a pleasant surprise once spring rolls around. Even if you think that you have drained your sprinkler system, there can still be water left in the pipes that will be susceptible to freezing in winter. That’s why it is important to have a professional do the job for you. At Firmly Rooted, we have years of experience winterizing both commercial and residential irrigation systems.

Blowing out a sprinkler system can actually be dangerous, which is why it is best to have an expert perform this service. An air compressor is used that utilizes great strength that can be harmful to various body parts, especially the eyes. The process includes shutting off both the water supply and the system’s backflow valves. Once the compressor is hooked up, air must be slowly released into the sprinkler system.

There is also a specific order in which you should blow out the system, zone by zone, which varies on a case-by-case basis. It is also important that you do not continue to pump air into the system after it is dry, as that can cause heat damage. Furthermore, it is also imperative that all valves are not shut off at once while the air compressor is still running, as this can damage the entire system.

At Firmly Rooted, our expert landscapers know how to blow out a sprinkler system properly. We can ensure that your irrigation pipes will not freeze this winter. Don’t jeopardize the investment you’ve already made in your sprinkler system by not winterizing it before the first freeze. If your irrigation system freezes, it will be a big expense and a big inconvenience to dig up your whole yard in order to get it fixed. Contact us today for your fall blow out and rest assured that you’ll be ready to water your lawn come spring!
