The Colony Sprinkler Repair
Over 50% of the water used from providers goes to irrigation systems. When you have one that is neglected, it starts to develop issues. Issues mean that water is used inside the system never makes it to its intended destination, equaling wasted water and wasted money in many cases.
The irony in this is that these systems are actually designed to cut down on water waste. When you have an irrigation system that is maintained correctly, it will cut down on water waste, minimize pollution from run-off and using too much, and also improves overall plant life by giving specific timed amounts of water to be utilized.
It really is important to conduct regular checks to your system as is recommended with anything mechanical. You check your vehicle after so many miles and so often to verify fluids, wear/tear, filter health, and many other things. You conduct regular checks on household appliances and verify everything is in working order. So why would your sprinkler system be the exception?
Irrigation System Maintenance in Colony
In an ideal situation, it’s best to conduct at least one full check every month. The bare minimum would be twice in the entire season, once at the beginning, and once halfway through. At least that way you know what you’re dealing with and can take care of issues that may have come up during the wintertime. You’ll want to check for the following:
- The controller is plugged in and is also functioning properly
- Verify correct date and time
- Make sure all wires are connected properly along with sensors
- Go ahead and replace your battery back-up
- Set up the correct schedule
- Activate each zone and inspect for damage
If all else fails, make sure you’re contacting a Colony irrigation system expert to handle all of your repair and installation needs.
