What is ‘Cut and Cap’?

‘Cut and Cap’ is a process in irrigation where existing sprinkler lines are cut, capped, and sealed to discontinue water flow to specific areas. This technique is often employed during landscaping renovations, pool installations, or when certain zones are no longer needed. At Shaffer’s Irrigation, our team executes ‘Cut and Cap’ with precision to ensure a seamless transition for your irrigation system.


Why is ‘Cut and Cap’ Done?

Landscaping Changes: When redesigning your landscape, certain areas may no longer require irrigation. ‘Cut and Cap’ allows for the adjustment of your system to meet the evolving needs of your property.

Pool Installations: Pool construction often involves altering the layout of your yard, necessitating changes to the irrigation system. ‘Cut and Cap’ ensures a smooth integration between your new pool and existing irrigation infrastructure.

Prevent Damage: Deactivating irrigation lines during construction projects helps prevent damage to the lines and ensures the integrity of the irrigation system.

Facilitate Construction: Temporarily deactivating irrigation lines allows construction crews to work unimpeded without the risk of damaging irrigation infrastructure.


How is ‘Cut and Cap’ Done?

  1. Evaluation: Our team begins by evaluating your existing irrigation system and understanding the specific requirements for the ‘Cut and Cap’ process.
  2. Precise Cutting: We carefully identify and mark the irrigation lines that need adjustment. Using specialized tools, we make precise cuts in the selected lines.
  3. Capping and Sealing: After cutting, we cap the ends of the lines, sealing them securely to prevent water flow. This step ensures that water is redirected only to the areas that require irrigation.
