We are proficient at servicing hydraulic, 2-wire, and pump driven systems. A properly designed and installed irrigation system employing water conservation practices can save the end user a significant amount of money while protecting one of our most valuable natural resources; water.
Our systems incorporate the most up-to-date water conservation applications including the installation of check valve heads to minimize the gravity drainage of residual water within pipes, water efficient drip irrigation, low volume water delivery nozzles, and rain/weather sensors which automatically suspend and/or adjust water distribution based on temperature changes and rainfall amounts.
We absolutely believe that the single most important and effective irrigation water conservation practice is end-user education. Efficient sprinkler system design, installation, and retrofit practices are balanced by a responsibility to educate the end-user with the proper operation of the system. At the conclusion of every project, we provide our Clients with a comprehensive orientation to explain and demonstrate the functional capabilities of the controller, rain/weather/moisture sensors settings, precipitation delivery rates of the various heads, and required seasonal water application adjustments. We also encourage our Clients to contact us to discuss recommended program settings in an effort to properly manage water consumption throughout the spring, summer, and fall seasons.
