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.

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.

A common misconception among homeowners is that a spring start up for a sprinkler system is “just turning on the valve”. On the contrary, Pacific Lawn Sprinklers has detailed, proven, and systematic irrigation procedures that must be followed to ensure your sprinkler system is operating at its best.

Water Requirements for Your Lawn Sprinkler System during the Spring Season

Spring is the time of the year when your landscape is starting to emerge from the long cold winter season. The buds on the trees are finally starting to develop. The roots on your plants and grass are beginning  to grow again and plant life is regaining it’s beautiful vibrant colors.

At this time of the year your automatic lawn sprinkler system needs to be properly “started up” and reviewed. All repairs and alterations should be performed (by only a qualified irrigation technician) at this time to ensure your system is operating at its peak performance. The water duration and frequency of the watering cycles  (aka settings) should be programmed into the lawn sprinkler controller to deliver just the right amount of moisture during each irrigation cycle. Over watering at this time is a common problem and can severely hurt or diminish the growth  of your seasonal plantings and existing evergreens.

During the annual spring start up visit, Pacific Lawn Sprinklers will program your irrigation controller for the adequate amount of water required at this time of year. A complete inspection of all main lines, lateral lines, backflow preventers and electric solenoid valves will be performed. Each sprinkler head will be checked and adjusted to ensure proper coverage and operation.

The Benefits of a Lawn Sprinkler Irrigation System – Pacific Lawn Sprinklers

The Benefits of a Lawn Sprinkler Irrigation System – Pacific Lawn Sprinklers

Author: Pacific Lawn Sprinklers/Thursday, July 11, 2019/Categories: News, Lawn Sprinklers

Over the years, owning an in-ground sprinkler system has become less of a luxury and more or a necessity! In today’s world, homeowners do not want to drag hoses across their lawns or spend hours meticulously watering plant beds and flowers. Further, no one wants to have that one house on the block with dead grass! However, lawn sprinkler systems have even more benefits than you think!

Save Money


Your water bill will be lower and your landscape will live longer and healthier. With an automatic irrigation system you will use the exact amount of water needed because the irrigation controller is precisely programmed to water for an exact amount of time per zone and at the optimal time of the day (early morning hours). Further, smart systems can reduce your annual water bill by as much as 30 percent by preventing water waste. The controller’s programming is automatically updated through a Wifi connection to a local weather station. And an added bonus- many local water providers offer rebates for purchasing specific smart controllers.

Save Water


Did you know an automatic lawn sprinkler system uses less water than watering by hand? Watering by hand or throughout the night often leads to excess water and water runoff. In many cases it will also expose your grass to fungus or rotting. Overwatering can actually damage your grass and plants because nutrients from the soil can be washed away. An irrigation system will emit just the right amount of water to keep your landscape thriving, while optimizing watering efficiency. Further, smart Wifi controllers automatically suspend watering during rain, freezing or high wind conditions. Careful scheduling minimizes evaporation and encourages water to soak in, reducing the total amount of water needed.

Aesthetic Benefits


Lawns that are watered properly by an in-ground sprinkler system look plush, healthy and green. Irrigation systems automatically increase the curb appeal of your property and enhance the beauty of your home. Want the best part? An automatic irrigation system is almost never seen! All sprinkler lines are buried underneath the ground and the only time you will see the sprinkler heads pop up is when your irrigation system is watering. Once each watering cycle is complete, the sprinkler heads retract, and “disappear” back into the ground. Plus, we suggest watering your lawn and garden in the early morning hours for optimal health and watering efficiency!

Save time


No more dragging hoses through your lawn and spending hours watering by hand. If you have a busy schedule, you probably find it hard to find time to water the lawn and plants daily. Lawn sprinkler systems and garden irrigation systems guarantee that your landscaping will receive regular and adequate water at the optimal time of day to keep your lawn thriving. Since automatic irrigation systems work on their own, you will have more time doing the things you love, at no expense to your lawn!

Add value


An in-ground sprinkler system can increase a home’s property value by an average of 15%. In many states, an in-ground sprinkler system installation is considered a capital improvement- meaning it is an addition to the property that enhances its overall value.

Convenience


One of the most common benefits of a lawn sprinkler system we hear from our customers is the added convenience! Obviously clients no longer have to hand water their lawn, shrubs and flowers. A lawn sprinkler system designed and installed by Pacific Lawn Sprinklers will provide the best coverage possible. Homeowners know their sprinkler system will run according to the scheduling program we set on the controller and do not have to worry about it! Even if you are out of town, you can rest assure your lawn is being irrigated.
