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.

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”.

During the winter season, most climates experience freezing temperatures and snow, which can be extremely harsh on your lawn sprinkler system’s components. The earth could have shifted, pipes could have cracked or corroded, and fittings could have come loose. Before you schedule your spring start up, you want to make sure that the ground is no longer frozen and is frost free. The reason is because if you have your spring turn on completed too early, and we experience freezing temperatures AFTER your water has been turned on for the season, the water in your system can freeze and potentially cause damage.

During a spring start up, your professionally trained Pacific Lawn Sprinklers service technician will follow a 10 Point Checklist and carefully go through your entire irrigation system. This includes opening the supply valves and pressurizing the supply lines, inspecting the main lines, backflow devices, valve manifolds and water mains for leaks, checking heads and emitters for proper operation and direction, and setting the control timer.

The best time to turn on your sprinkler will also depend on when you are having new landscaping/ plantings done. We always suggest to have your spring turn on completed BEFORE you have landscaping and plantings done to ensure that your new grass, flowers, and gardens will receive water immediately after planting. New landscaping can die in just a couple days if it is not properly irrigated, and must receive the correct amount of water to thrive. Once plantings are completed, Pacific can always come back for seasonal head tweaks and adjustments, but you want to be sure your landscaping is being watered immediately.

So, now, are you ready to schedule your lawn sprinkler turn on? Pacific Lawn Sprinkler’s Service Department is ready to schedule your appointment! Please schedule an appointment conveniently online at www.pacificlawnsprinkles.com or give us a call at 888-438-7224.

Happy Spring!
