5 Benefits for Opening Your Irrigation System Now

May 10, 2019 |

Since Rockland County, NY and Bergen County, NJ received ample rainfall over the past year, it’s hard to think about opening up your property’s irrigation system. And yet, your landscape contractor can open it, so you’re ready to turn it on as soon as summer heat returns.

Why Spring is the Right Time to Open Up Your Sprinkler System

In Rockland County, NY and Bergen County, NJ, your springtime weather ranges from damp, rainy days to warm, sunny ones—sometimes all within one week.

You also know that you typically get plenty of rain every April and early May. So, why do you need to open up your sprinkler system?

It’s simple—your landscaping contractor can check for broken parts and fix them early in the season. Then, when a heat wave hits the East Coast, all you need to do is turn on the system.

Here are the five steps that your contractor goes through to open up your irrigation system for the season:

  • He’ll slowly open the central water system’s valves to allow water to fill the pipes.
  • He’ll make sure that each station valve is operating correctly.
  • He’ll check each station to make sure that the water pressure is even and there are no broken lines.
  • He’ll replace your controller’s backup battery.
  • He’ll uncover and clean your system’s weather sensor.

To clarify: Opening up your irrigation system is not the same as installing a new irrigation system or retrofitting your current system with new features. Those are separate services.

5 Benefits for Opening Your Irrigation System Now

Here are those five benefits regarding your irrigation system’s spring check-up:

  1. Your landscape contractor will look for broken parts: Spray and rotary heads will break due to age or debris in the lines. Now’s the time to get those spray heads replaced and in working order, so your irrigation system works efficiently and doesn’t waste water.
  2. Your landscaper will replace any missing or broken parts before the busy summer season starts: You may need a new valve, solenoid or spray head to get your system working efficiently this summer. Now is the perfect time to get those parts while they’re available.
  3. Your irrigation system needs monthly maintenance to run at top performance: You get a head start by having your landscape contractor open your irrigation system in the spring rather than waiting until the summer. You, then, won’t need to start monthly maintenance checks until later in the season.

Don’t forget about the trees on your property. They need plant health care too—read more in this blog post.

  1. It’s the perfect time to charge your lawn irrigation system: Getting your sprinkler system working in the spring is much better than waiting until it’s time to turn it on in the middle of summer. You’ll also be assured that spray heads and valves are in working order.
  2. All you need to do is set your preferences and turn the system on: So, you know all systems are go when your landscape contractor finishes opening up your lawn irrigation system. Then in a month or two when the heat waves start rolling in, you only need to tap your mobile device or open a valve to start watering your lawn and landscape. The rest will take care of itself.
