Frequently Asked Questions
Irrigation systems can be installed at any time, as long as the ground is not frozen. We begin irrigation system installations typically in the spring after the ground has thawed, and we work late into the fall until the beginning of November.
Yes we do. A smart irrigation system offers three important features: 1) You can control your irrigation system from anywhere in the world, 2) It allows for up to 50% water savings by monitoring local weather stations, and 3) It can be customized according to local rainfall and local environmental needs.
Spray heads are stationary and spray a fan of water to a small area. Rotor heads cover a much larger area as they oscillate back and forth to specific start/stop positions.
Sprinkler heads are grouped into sets known as zones. Each zone can be programmed separately, controlling how much water each zone receives and how frequently it is watered. Flower beds, lawns, and trees and shrubs are typically separated into different zones since they all have varied water requirements.
A backflow device prevents sprinkler water from backing up into your drinking water and causing contamination. It is added to the drinking water line outside your home.
Most of our customers are done using their irrigation system in early October, while others like to run theirs into late October. We recommend being added to our winterization list early in September. This gives our staff plenty of time to winterize your system before the winter season begins.
Irrigation Tips and Troubleshooting
While DeFazio Company offers maintenance services for irrigation systems, there are specific steps homeowners can take to ensure peak performance of their specific system:
- Keep all sprinkler heads free of dirt, grass clippings, and other debris.
- Inspect sprinkler heads to ensure they are straight. If they are not straight, it can alter their direction leaving some areas of your yard without water.
- Check the irrigation system control box after a power outage and adjust the programming as required.
- Ensure that the back-up battery is completely charged, and replace as needed.
Environmental Benefits of Lawn Irrigation
Lawn irrigation systems are not only convenient, but they also provide a number of environmental perks. These benefits allow your lawn and garden to thrive with minimal waste. With the following options, you will save a considerable amount of water each year:
- Proper lawn positioning
- Concise daily programming
