Irrigation systems are critical for a beautiful and welcoming landscape, for both residential and commercial properties in the Orlando and Tampa area. Irrigation also plays a big role in saving money and water!
Spring is the time to restart your irrigation system, it’s also the time we see the impact Mother Nature and normal wear and tear has taken on the system.
Fortunately, most of these problems are easily repaired with simple retrofits. Even if your system isn’t having any issues, retrofitting can improve performance, save water and tons of money.
A cost effective retrofit is a rain sensor. When it’s raining or the moisture level is high, the system sends a message to the controller to turn off, this way you’re not watering when it’s raining.
Valve or Nozzle Conversion
If the nozzles aren’t working properly water can just pour out, not only wasting water and money, it’s not effectively watering the landscaping which can lead to a host of other issues such as soggy areas.
A simple retrofit to multi-trajectory, rotating nozzles will water more uniformly and slower, creating a more targeted irrigation.
Check the Zones
Over time the landscape changes, trees and plants grow and so do their needs. Evaluate your irrigation system and determine which ones aren’t needed anymore. Just shutting down one zone can save tons of money and water.
Using less water and pressure, drip irrigation is a money saving alternative to the traditional irrigation.
Wear and Tear
Over time plastic deteriorates, which leads to cracking and leaking valves, the most common reasons for water loss. Routine maintenance of the irrigation system is an investment that pays off in the long run.
