If you have a commercial property with an irrigation system, it is important that it is properly cared for. A great way to do this is to hire a professional to take care of your irrigation maintenance needs. Here are three great ways that a professional can help you with your commercial irrigation.
Set Irrigation Clocks
One very important thing that a professional can do for your commercial irrigation system is to set your irrigation clocks. These clocks control when your sprinklers turn on and how long they are on for each time. It is crucial that this clock is set correctly or your grass and plants may not get the water that they need to grow and thrive. It is also important that the water is turned on at the correct time of day so things like sunlight, wind, etc. don’t interfere with your watering.
Winterize Your System
When it is cold enough outside that you no longer need your commercial irrigation system running, it is important to call a professional to come and winterize your system for you. They will use a pressure machine to blow all of the water out of the line and will then close all of the sprinkler heads to seal it off. This makes sure that no water is stuck in the pipes that could potentially freeze and cause the pipes to break.
Adjust/Replace Sprinkler Heads
After winter is over and your commercial irrigation system needs to be turned back on once again, you should call the professionals. Not only will they be able to get your irrigation clocks reset, but they will also be able to do any repair work that may be done to your sprinkler heads. This may involve replacing any broken heads and/or adjust sprinkler heads that may no longer be covering the specific grass area that you need them to. This helps to make sure that all of the water being used during watering times is effective and also helps to ensure your grass and other plants are growing like they should.
