When Should I Turn On My Sprinkler System?

When Should I Turn On My Sprinkler System?

As spring begins, it is once again time to turn on your lawn sprinkler system! Of course the BEST time for a spring start up is weather related and varies year to year, but anytime from the end of March right through May can be the best time to have your lawn and garden irrigation system activated. Spring Startups are also known as “Summerizing”, “Water Sprinkler Turn-On”, “In ground Sprinkler Start Up” and “Sprinkler System Set Up”.

Is your Drinking Water Protected?

Is your Drinking Water Protected?

A backflow prevention valve on a lawn sprinkler or drip irrigation system can come in many types and brands. Each device offers an additional level of protection against the possible chance of the irrigation water from backing up into and contaminating your domestic drinking (potable) water. More and more frequently, water companies are mandating that the backflow preventer on your irrigation system be tested once a year to ensure its proper operation.

NEVER Lock in & NEVER Pre-pay!

NEVER Lock in & NEVER Pre-pay!

How many people out there like to sign long term service contracts and pre-pay for yearly services? Over our years in business, we at Pacific Lawn Sprinklers have learned that clients do NOT like to lock into maintenance service contracts or pre-pay for services. We can understand why- service contracts often have exclusions and stipulations, you can end up paying for services you don’t actually need, and the level of quality customer service usually decreases over time. Maintenance service contracts often include spring turn on and winterization visits, monthly inspections and service visits.
