Why should I have an irrigation maintenance agreement?

A maintenance agreement program for an irrigation system offers several benefits to customers. It provides a structured and proactive approach to ensuring you and your irrigation system remains in optimal condition. Here are compelling reasons why you should consider having a maintenance agreement program for your irrigation system:
  1. Optimal System Performance: Regular maintenance helps keep the irrigation system operating at peak efficiency. This means that plants, lawns, and landscapes receive the right amount of water, promoting healthy growth and minimizing water waste.
  2. Cost Savings: Preventative maintenance can identify and address issues early, reducing the risk of major breakdowns and costly repairs. Minor adjustments and component replacements are typically less expensive than extensive repairs or system replacements.
  3. Water Conservation: Well-maintained irrigation systems are more water-efficient. Maintenance programs ensure that sprinklers are properly adjusted, leaks are repaired promptly, and water distribution is uniform, ultimately leading to water conservation and lower water bills.
  4. Extended System Lifespan: Regular maintenance prolongs the life of the irrigation system. Components like valves, pumps, and controllers are less likely to wear out prematurely, which means you can get more years of use out of your system.
  5. Preservation of Landscaping Investment: For homeowners and businesses with landscaped properties, irrigation system maintenance protects the investment made in their outdoor spaces. Healthy, well-watered plants and lawns enhance property value and curb appeal.
  6. Consistent Scheduling: Maintenance agreements include scheduled service visits, ensuring that the irrigation system is cared for consistently throughout the year. This takes the burden off you to remember when service is needed.
  7. Compliance with Regulations: Some areas have water usage regulations that require regular maintenance of irrigation systems to minimize water wastage. A maintenance agreement helps you to stay compliant with these rules.
  8. Convenience: You don’t have to worry about tracking maintenance schedules, making service appointments, or troubleshooting irrigation issues yourself; Shaffer’s Irrigation handles all aspects of system care.
  9. Peace of Mind: Knowing that your irrigation system is regularly serviced and in good working order gives you peace of mind. You can trust that your landscapes will receive the water it need, even when you are not actively monitoring the system.
  10. Improved System Efficiency: Your irrigation technician may suggest including a system optimization, ensuring that your irrigation system is adjusted to meet changing landscape needs and evolving weather conditions.
  11. Emergency Response: In the event of unexpected system failures or emergencies, we will prioritize your service, helping you get your system up and running quickly.
  12. Customized Service: Maintenance agreements can be tailored to your specific needs and your irrigation system, considering factors like system size, complexity, and landscaping requirements.
  In conclusion, a maintenance agreement program for an irrigation system is a proactive and cost-effective way for customers to ensure the longevity, efficiency, and effectiveness of your irrigation investment. It not only saves money in the long run but also contributes to water conservation and the health of landscapes.
