The Advantages of Owning an Automatic Sprinkler System
If you are considering hiring Southern Sprinkler Systems to install or repair, maintain or upgrade your existing system, the following answers to frequently asked questions can help get you started towards owning the most convenient and efficient way to water your lawn and landscape.
No. — In fact, an automatic sprinkler system may actually save you water. A well designed, efficient irrigation system applies exactly the amount of water needed by your landscape. You will never again have to worry about wasting water if you forget to turn off the hose. Plus, with a wireless rain sensor your system will know when it is raining and simply turn itself off when water is not needed.
Yes. — You won’t have to spend another minute of your valuable leisure time watering the lawn. Your new system will do all the watering for you – even when you are away from home!
An automatic sprinkler system will do a more efficient job because it will be designed based on your landscapes diverse watering needs, using specific products designed to water grass, trees, shrubs or garden plants.
If it rained at your house every three days — the same exact amount each time — you probably would not need a sprinkler system. But nature doesn’t work that way, and the only way to ensure a healthy, lush yard is to make certain that your lawn and plants receive a regularly timed and evenly measured amount of water. In the dry season when there is little or no rain, your plants can suffer stress and damage after just a few days without water.
A typical system is comprised of a controller (which functions as the brains of the system), valves (which open and close to release and stop the flow of water to underground pipes) and sprinklers (which distribute water to specific areas). The sprinkler system can be customized further with rain shut off devices, soil moisture sensors and drip irrigation zones.
It is not necessary that a system’s components are manufactured by the same company. In order to ensure that the components will work well together, Southern Sprinkler Systems will design a system using the best components. Rain Bird and Hunter are the major players and they manufacture complete lines of components that make up an efficient irrigation system and that is why we chose to use them. Southern Sprinkler Systems will choose and install the right product for your landscape’s diverse watering needs.
Yes, you can install and/or repair an automatic sprinkler system on your own, but why would you? It is laborious, dirty, time consuming work that requires specialized knowledge, components and tools. As with any home improvement project, you should consider all the aspects of the project before you begin.
It depends. Remember, product cost is only one part of an efficient irrigation system. Many people choose to hire an experienced professional irrigation contractor who will bring years of experience designing and installing the most cost-effective and efficient irrigation systems. Southern Sprinkler Systems has also invested heavily in specialized installation equipment to help speed up the job and out technicians have gone through detailed training courses and certifications.
