Proper irrigation is crucial for maintaining a healthy yard. The easiest and most efficient way to ensure your lawn has the nutrients it needs to thrive is by installing a home irrigation system. These systems automatically water your lawn according to a customizable and responsive schedule, keeping your lawn lush and green while conserving water and saving you time and money.
Installing a home sprinkler system goes a long way toward keeping your lawn healthy, but even after installation, there are steps homeowners can take to save even more money. With regular checkups, maintenance, and a few industry tricks, you can maximize your home irrigation system’s efficiency and performance.
Inspect Your Home Irrigation System
Go through each lawn section and manually check your sprinkler head’s performance.
Broken, misaligned, or clogged sprinkler heads can impair your sprinkler system’s performance. Clean and replace any clogged or damaged sprinkler heads to ensure water is dispersed correctly.
Adjust Sprinkler Head Direction
Your latest expensive water bill could be due to your sprinkler system watering in undesignated locations. Walk through and check that your sprinkler heads are angled correctly. They shouldn’t be facing sidewalks, driveways, or any non-living landscape elements.
Install Rain Sensor Technology
Rain sensor technology detects rainfall and prevents home sprinkler systems from operating in the rain. Keeping your home sprinkler system off during significant rainfall cuts down on redundant watering, preventing overwatering and saving you time and money.
Check Your Water Pressure
When the water pressure in your sprinkler system is too low or too high, your system could be thrown off-kilter, resulting in unnecessarily high water bills. Review your sprinkler system manufacturer’s recommended range to ensure it’s operating with the correct water pressure.
Create Automated Water Scheduling
Some home irrigation systems can change how certain portions of a lawn are watered while leaving others untouched. Creating “zones” with specific, unique delivery settings throughout your lawn allows you to optimize your lawn-watering schedule, so you can spend less time tweaking settings and more time relaxing.
