Tips for your irrigation system


Regular Inspections:

  • We encourage you to inspect your irrigation system regularly, looking for leaks, damaged components, or misaligned sprinklers. Early detection can prevent water wastage and costly repairs.

Adjust for Seasonal Changes:

  • Adjusting your irrigation schedule seasonally as your lawns and plants require different amounts of water in different season.

Watering Early or Late:

  • Water your landscapes early in the morning or late in the evening when temperatures are cooler. This reduces water loss due to evaporation and wind.

Install a Rain Sensor:

  • Installing a rain sensor can prevent the irrigation system from running during or shortly after rain. It’s an effective way to conserve water and prevent overwatering.

Choose Drip Irrigation for Gardens:

  • For gardens or flower beds, use drip irrigation systems. They deliver water directly to the root zones, reducing water wastage and minimizing weed growth.

Proper Sprinkler Placement:

  • Ensure that sprinklers are correctly positioned to avoid water spraying on sidewalks, driveways, or buildings. Adjust them to cover only the necessary areas.

Use Smart Controllers:

  • Upgrade to a smart irrigation controller. These devices use weather data and soil moisture sensors to optimize watering schedules automatically.

Mulch Around Plants:

  • Apply mulch around plants and trees. Mulch helps retain soil moisture, reducing the need for frequent watering.

Check Water Pressure:

  • Regular checks of water pressure ensure it falls within the optimal range for the irrigation system. High water pressure can lead to misting and water wastage.


Professional Maintenance:

  • Schedule professional maintenance at least once a year. Irrigation experts can assess the system for issues, adjust settings, and replace worn-out components.

Keep Records:

  • Keep records of your irrigation system settings and maintenance activities. This can be helpful for troubleshooting and optimizing water usage.
