Since 1980 Pacific Lawn Sprinklers has been specializing in residential irrigation systems and garden irrigation systems. Over the years, Pacific’s unique process for the installation of sprinkler systems has been customized for each individual home and landscape design. An irrigation installation begins with the design and is carried through to the set up of each sprinkler head, the location of the control valves, the installation of the pipe and the mounting of the control timer and rain sensor. Some of the unique features developed by Pacific Lawn Sprinklers used during the installation of a lawn sprinkler system are list below:
- State-of-the-art pipe laying equipment to ensure that most residential irrigation systems are installed in just one day with minimal, if any signs of lawn disturbance.
- Existing sidewalks and driveways are no problem to cross under using our air powered punches and boring equipment. Sprinkler piping is installed under these obstructions so there is no need for cutting, breaking or patching.
- For the delicate areas such flower beds and vegetable gardens, Pacific uses the tried and true method of hand trenching to preserve the integrity of the existing root structure and plant material. Sprinkler System Components:
Pacific Lawn Sprinklers is an authorized service representative for all the major lawn sprinkler product lines and manufacturers such as: Hunter Industries, Toro Lawn Sprinklers, Rainbird Sprinklers, Netafim Drip Irrigation Products, Weathermatic, Irritrol and K Rain. The following are several sprinkler products typical required in most automatic irrigation designs.
Controller - Watering Timer
Also known as “the brain” of the lawn sprinkler system, the controller enables both the contractor and the homeowner to set watering times, frequency and/or specific days of the week you would like the system to run. Many towns and Villages have specific times that you are allowed to water your landscape and these restrictions can be handled by properly programming the automatic sprinkler controller. Specific religious requests can be met such as NO watering on Saturday or Sunday. The easy to use interface and simplified programming is designed to help make your lawn watering process a snap. Once install a Pacific Lawn Sprinkler technician will demonstrate for you that with just a few button-clicks, you will be able to manage your new automatic system like a PRO lawn sprinkler tech. How many times have you left your old manual sprinkler running for hours before you remembered to shut it off?
Automatic Rain Sensors
This device saves you money not only by reducing the amount of water you use but will also help to make you lush and beautiful landscaping will be healthier and develop a stronger root system. An automatic rain sensor alerts your lawn sprinkler system controller (also known as the” brain” of the system ) to suspend the watering cycle in the event of rain. The rain sensor will detect the amount of rainfall and will only allow the system to activate again on the next preset time if the correct moisture is required. How many times have you seen your neighbors watering their lawns in the rain?
Mist Sprinkler Heads
Many smaller properties, delicate shrub beds and even vegetable gardens are the perfect application for sprinkler mist heads. They can be either pop up style (4”, 6”, 12”) or they can be on stationary risers positioned behind larger shrubs to spray over. Most mist sprinkler heads are used in smaller lawn areas and shrub beds because their watering pattern is easily adjusted and can be designed to eliminate over spraying onto walkways, the side of your house or your neighbor’s yard. Pacific Lawn Sprinklers will only install the most reliable and trouble-free sprinklers that utilize an automatic retractable shaft so when the watering cycle is finished the head will completely go back into the lawn area so there is no interference with lawn mowers, children playing or foot traffic. With over 37 years in the business Pacific has tested and chosen only the best commercially rated products that are available today for your home lawn sprinkler system.
Rotary Sprinkler Heads
Larger lawn areas require the use of a different type of sprinkler called a rotary head. These heads come in different sizes (4”, 6”, 12”) pop up style to rise up out of the grass or behind large shrubs. A rotary head will spray a heavier stream of rotating water that is delivered to a much larger area. By designing an area with rotary heads it is important that the designed pay close attention to the overlapping coverage which is required when use these style sprinkler heads. By rotating and spraying anywhere from 15’- 60’ (depending upon available water volume and pressure) these heads can be extremely cost effective. The heavier stream and the force of the water help to minimize the loss of water to wind drift. When the watering is complete, rotary heads will retract back down either into the lawn or into the shrubs and will be completely unnoticeable. Many people find these heads aesthetically pleasing and feel a sense of peace while the system is operating.
Drip irrigation also known as sub-surface irrigation was invented in Israel to irrigate crops in the desert. This style of watering is the most efficient and cost effective in terms of water usage. A series or tubes with built in weep holes (called emitters) are placed throughout the shrub bed or garden area slowly and precisely delivering drip after drip of water directly into the soil at the root source. No water is wasted on runoff or wind drift making drip irrigation the most efficient form of irrigation available. Another form of drip irrigation is the design and use of small individual tubes (called “spaghetti lines”) which are attached to a perimeter supply line and extend into the planters or pots that require watering. These lines and emitters are all controlled by the control timer for frequency and duration. Many times drip installations are used on “GREEN ROOFS” and outdoor terraces that have isolated planters or potted flowers. A drip irrigation system can actually be working unnoticeably while the owner is relaxing or entertaining on their terrace or patio.
