Spring is the ideal time for an irrigation system checkup to prepare for summer.
Although it's ideal to keep an eye on your irrigation system year-round to spot issues before they worsen, spring could easily be dubbed the most important time of the year to do a checkup to prepare for warmer weather. For most of the winter, your irrigation system was likely sitting dormant and may have problems that you wouldn't have been able to notice until now. An irrigation system checkup ensures any issues are completely ironed out before the heat ramps up in summer, because you'll need it to be in perfect working order to keep your lawn and landscape hydrated and healthy!
A proper irrigation system checkup will include a thorough review of the zones, nozzles, and more.
A professional irrigation system checkup will be thorough and comprehensive. A professional will check the:
- Zones: Checking irrigation zones to ensure they're appropriate for your current landscape is essential to keeping plants in the area hydrated and healthy.
- System parts: Each segment of the irrigation system will be reviewed, looking for parts that aren't functioning as they should or that have taken on wear and tear from the seasons and may develop an issue soon.
- Nozzle alignment: Review the nozzle alignment to make certain they're not out of line and adjust any that are.
- Controller: With your zones and nozzles optimized, they'll check the irrigation controller to set it with the appropriate watering times for each zone.
There are a lot of minute details that go into an irrigation system, so it's imperative to consider and review each factor for your irrigation system to operate at optimal capacity!
