The secret to a lush and vibrant lawn is proper watering. Installing a sprinkler system is a laborious task. At Sprinkler Repair of Texas, we install systems without costly mistakes. Our goal is to provide service above and beyond your expectations.
Different Irrigations Systems
We help you choose a lawn sprinkler system that waters efficiently, ensuring you have an impressive lawn for your home or business. There are a few different irrigation systems from which you can choose. First, you’ll need to know your lawn and garden needs, from the sprinkler head to water pressure and flow. Another variable is how many water zones and square footage to cover on the ground level. Watering can be done by a garden hose attached to the house wall. However, if you have a busy life, the human sprinkler system may not be suitable.
Choosing and installing a system can be a daunting task–that’s why Sprinkler Repair of Texas can do it for you and help you select a sprinkler system wisely to need your needs for the best price possible.
Install Sprinkler Systems
The first step to properly install a sprinkler system is to know where you can dig. Sprinkler Repair of Texas ensures that we avoid gas lines, main water supply lines, or cable tv lines. With any job that requires digging, that is always the first step.
After we consult with the local utility service companies, we will start assessing what we need for the entire lawn and flower beds to confirm we have the right components. Water supply is a significant factor in the following:
- Water pressure in PSI
- Size of the water meter or well pump
- Size of the water service line
- Flow rate measured in gallons per minute
Once all the right components are accounted for, it is time to start the installation process.
For this phase, we draw a map for the new sprinkler system. A stake is placed at every sprinkler location as indicated on our map for sprinkler heads. A string is used to represent where the irrigation pipe will run.
Next, we place the underground sprinkler system, and trenches must be dug following the string line. The typical trench depth is 6 to 12 inches to allow adequate space for PVC pipe sprinkler lines and valves on the manifold. The two most common pipes used are polyethylene pipe and PVC pipe. Polyethylene pipe is more flexible and better for cold climates. In some cases, a pipe pulling machine is used with a poly pipe. A pipe puller machine will bury the pipe without digging up the lawn. A pipe cutter is used to trim stock lengths to the customized size needed for your underground sprinkler system to get all pipes to the correct size.
Following that, the process becomes visible as we lay out the irrigation pipe into trenches. Connect the PVC piping for the underground sprinkler system and hook up the main water supply line. Once the pipe is laid, we assemble and flush out the sprinkler system, clearing out any dirt that may have gotten into the pipes.
After assembling, it is time to finalize the wiring, the control system, and the preferred watering schedule. Lastly, we test the system, zone by zone. When all the zone valves, pipes, and sprinkler heads are suitable–we bury the pipe.
A quality installation is just as necessary as a good design with head-to-head spacing to ensure every square inch is covered. To install a sprinkler system is a complex process. Professional installation guarantees sufficient planning to ensure proper water pressure and set to control box to the desired spray pattern. Additionally, sprinkler heads need to be replaced and cleaned to ensure they work properly. In addition to expertise, professionals are also aware of local building department permits that the township may require.
As a commercial business or residential homeowner, installing a lawn sprinkler system can increase the property’s value and decrease the aggravation of being a human sprinkler system. Installing an irrigation system may seem expensive at first, but it saves money in the long run when the lawn receives proper watering and not abundant water usage.
Types of Available Systems
The three most common system types are:
- Fixed spray heads: The water sprinkler is fixed, the spray head pops up out of the ground, and the water fans out over a specified area until it meets with the next sprinkler head. These sprinkler heads can be spaced out about 18’-30’ apart with adequate water pressure.
- Rotary Heads: Rotary nozzles are pop-up sprinklers. They connect with smaller pop-up sprinkler head types. Rotary sprinkler head types are less expensive, more efficient than traditional ones, and produce less mist. Rotary heads have a radius of 15’ to 34’.
- Drip: A drip system is perfect for flower bed watering zones. Environmentalists consider it the best option because it is water-efficient. It uses only a fraction of the water and supplies it slowly into the soil, allowing it to absorb instead of flood and then runoff. The drip system offers multiple sprinkler heads such as bubblers, drippers, soakers, and micro-sprayers.
