It is critical that the installation process is done correctly the first time. Not all companies know how to properly install a water conserving sprinkler system.
1. DIG SAFE
Calling Dig Safe is the law! Dig Safe will come out and mark all underground utilities to prevent us from damaging utilities or personal injury. 1-800-DIG-SAFE
2. LAYOUT & DESIGN
The system is designed in the yard with the homeowner, salesman, and foreman of the crew. Flags mark the location of the heads and the homeowner is then walked through the job to ensure there are no surprises.
3. LET THE WORK BEGIN
After the yard is measured and approved, all the pipes are installed. The licensed plumber will install the inside and outside copper valves and back flow preventer in compliance with all the state codes.
4. THE PIPES ARE PULLED
As the pipes are pulled underground some of the crew digs holes for the sprinkler heads. The valve boxes that house the valves are also dug at this time.
5. SPRINKLER HEADS
The heads are installed with care. They are installed flush with the grade of the loam below the turf. Heads are pre-adjusted and backfilled; when backfilling we make sure wherever we dig is cleaned up to the way it was or better.
6. VALVES & WIRING
The valves are located in the mulch beds. We make sure we put these boxes in spots that are inconspicuous and out of obvious view. Once the valves are connected and tested they are wired. The wiring is low voltage and no permit or electrician is needed.
The timer is the brain of the system. Without a good timer the system can’t save you money or our natural resources. We usually install the timer in the garage. Most importantly, we install the timer where it is convenient for you to monitor and adjust.
8. RAIN SENSOR
The rain sensor is very important. Not all companies think so, that’s why you see sprinkler systems on in the rain. We require all the systems we install to have a functioning and accurate rain sensor.
9. CLEAN UP
Clean up is what the customer will notice the most. Since most of what we do is underground, some customers only care about how their yard looks when we are done. We make the yard look as good as the system performs. We rake, tamp, sweep and clean up as if it was a separate job we were hired to do.
Once the system is charged and checked for leaks, we begin adjustments. We attend to each head to make sure it is not leaking and that it is adjusted perfectly. The timer is adjusted to the season. The season dictates the duration and frequency of the watering.
This is where you come in. You will need a lesson on the basics of your new system. The timer has instructions with it, but we will walk you through it the first time and we are only a phone call awayfor any questions. We then walk through the yard and show you how to adjust the heads and explain the rest of the system’s components.
Your system is complete — ENJOY! — Show it off to your friends and family. Have your friends call us for a system and we will give you a referral credit on your next invoice.
