Seasonal Preventative MAintenance
In the Spring:
Each Spring a postcard is mailed to each customer indicating the time we will be in your neighborhood doing system turn-ons. During this time, our service technicians will go through each zone individually to ensure proper coverage, efficient watering schedules, and to be sure each head is rotating and is free of any leaks. Each timer is set to the customers wishes, including watering start times, watering days, and each zone's total watering time. Fine tuning the timer's settings ensures both proper watering schedules as well as eliminating waste. Any issues are taken care of in order to have your system operating at its peak performance level saving both water, and in turn, money, for our customers. Annual preventative maintenance can keep systems in working order and nip larger issues in the bud before they become more costly headaches.
In the Fall:
With the harsh New England winters experienced in these parts, winterization of irrigation systems is a necessary part of annual maintenance. As with the Spring, a postcard is sent to all customers in the Fall indicating the times we will be in your neighborhood. We then blow compressed air through all of the lines and heads in the system, preventing any freezing and cracking of equipment. A common problem is the cracking of backflow preventers, as they are located above the ground (where the water supply from the inside of the house is fed outside and into the ground), which can be an expensive, and more importantly, avoidable issue. Once the compressed air has cleared all the irrigation system components of water, we shut down timers for the winter and ensure the water feeding the system is shut down to save on energy costs.
