Do You Need to Upgrade Your Irrigation System?

admin 09 Nov 2018 0 Comments

As you know, here in Orlando we like to keep our grass healthy. No matter if it’s at work or at home, there’s just something special about seeing lush grass that’s the perfect shade of green. So, when patches of brown and withering grass begin to appear, it can be a worrisome sight. While you may want to blame the heavens or accuse your neighbor for these patches, the truth of the matter is that the issue most likely lies within your irrigation system. While these systems are meant to last, there are many components within it that will require some repair because nothing lasts forever. Whether the problem is that your sprinklers stopped turning, the valves or controllers aren’t functioning properly, certain areas aren’t getting the water that they crave, and more, it might be time for an irrigation upgrade.

We know that the cost of irrigation repair or replacement might weigh heavily on your mind, but there’s no need to worry, Orange Irrigation & Drainage is here to help. More often than not, the problem is a simple fix. Even if it turns out to be a bigger issue, you can rest assured that we’ll provide our irrigation services at a fair price and make sure that your system is fully functional and operational when the job is done. If you believe that you may be in need of an irrigation upgrade or repair, reach out to us today!

Lifespan

While irrigation systems are meant to last for years, the general rule of thumb is that after sprinklers are 25 years or older that it’s time for them to clock out. We know it may be sad to say goodbye, but by using the same system you’ll end up with patchy grass and likely waste a significant amount of water.

Water Usage and Bills

Have you noticed a recent spike in your water bills? If you have, your irrigation system is probably the cause! Your sprinklers may be damaged or the entire system may be malfunctioning. If you’d like to save money as well as reduce water waste (why wouldn’t you?), give us a call as soon as possible and we’ll identify and fix the problem as soon as possible.

Tree Roots

One main reason for requiring an irrigation system upgrade are roots from large trees on the property. This is obviously a hassle, yet even with thorough planning, the growth of the trees isn’t predictable. When this occurs, the pipes to your sprinkler system face being dislodged or even entirely broken. One option is to remove the tree and repair the damage, however, this is not the most environmentally responsible decision. Instead, we’ll be there to replace the pipes and move them to a safe position away from the tree’s roots.

Better Technology

Technology has advanced leaps and bounds over the years, and that includes irrigation systems. While not too long ago, people relied on the rainfall as well as standing in the yard holding a hose, these days you don’t have to worry about anything! Basically, newer irrigation systems do all of the work for you, from timing to the water being dispersed to your lawn. However, you’re still going to want to keep an eye out for damage with newer systems. Problems may still occur, even if it’s as simple as a sprinkler head being knocked out of place.

No matter if you need an entirely new sprinkler system installed or sprinkler repair, contact Orange Irrigation & Drainage. We provide a comprehensive list of irrigation and drainage services so that you can keep your lawn lavish, green, and healthy.
