-- Spring is finally in full swing! Flowers are blooming and grass is growing. Things are finally looking green again which, according to Classic Lawnscape, means it's time for irrigation system spring startup. Area irrigation systems have been shut down all winter but it's time to get that grass growing again. By hiring a professional irrigation technician to properly startup the sprinkler system and get things going, one can ensure a greener landscape all summer long.
Irrigation system professionals like those at Classic Lawnscape know how to properly startup a system in order to avoid any damages. After a long winter, an irrigation system can be broken just by turning it on. Water hammer is when a rush of water flows into an empty pipe caused by a surge of air pressure. The result is burst fittings, producing geyser-like water eruptions on the lawn and it can even cause the system to fail.
A professional will get the irrigation systems properly turned back on and assessed for any issues. During this process, their certified irrigation technician will look for any areas that are in need of immediate attention or repairs including parts of the system that may become problematic in the near future. Next, they'll point out any areas of the system that could benefit from upgrading to smart irrigation technology in order to reduce the amount of water the system uses.
The technician will turn on the main water source and get it charged with water and at the same time perform any adjustments to the system's head heights or spray patterns to allow for optimal plant growth throughout the season. They can perform a variety of services as part of their spring startup including checking each sprinkler head for proper operation, testing water pressure, adjusting and clean sprinkler heads, installing batteries, adjusting and set controller, charging the system with water and more.
With proper startup and maintenance, homeowners can keep their yard looking great all summer long. Classic Lawnscape provides startup services for irrigation systems in the St Paul area.
