Annual Backflow Testing
One of the most important pieces of equipment in an underground sprinkler system is the backflow device.
This device keeps the water you use to water your lawn and other areas from contaminating the potable water in your neighborhood.
Your system, according to state law, must be tested annually to ensure that the device is working properly and keeping waste water that can contain pollutants separate from the water that flows from the mains into your home as well as your neighbors.
Nashville Sprinklers technicians are licensed to perform these tests when you need to have one conducted.
Sprinkler System Controller Maintenance
Sprinkler system controllers are one of the most critical components of your irrigation equipment.
While the majority of underground sprinkler controllers are designed to have a fairly long lifespan, things can happen.
Depending on where your sprinkler controller system is located even the best device can potentially be compromised by things such as heat or condensation from humidity (Nashville TN humidity), as well as the possibility of internal components failing on their own.
Our technicians will take a look at your sprinkler controller device to ensure that it is working properly and, depending on what they find, can make repairs or suggest replacement as necessary.
Replacing or Repairing Broken Sprinkler Heads
A broken sprinkler head or one that is clogged with debris can lead to area that aren’t receiving the coverage they need, leaving your lawn patchy looking.
Likewise, if water is leaking out from a broken sprinkler head during its cycle it can over water the area surrounding the head, which can lead to other problems like root rot and other grass based plant illnesses.
Our underground sprinkler system experts will inspect each sprinkler head to be sure they are all in good working order, making repairs or adjustment as warranted or suggesting replacement if that is found to be necessary.
Irrigation Drainage Maintenance
Proper drainage for an irrigation system like an underground sprinkler is and should always be considered during its installation, but situations can arise that make this something we take a look at during an annual maintenance appointment.
If the layout of your lawn changes with the addition of an element that wasn’t factored in during the installation of you system, the drainage plan may need to be adjusted.
Another common thing that can hinder proper drainage is the obstruction of drains by a buildup of debris like grass clippings, leaves, and other items that can block proper function.
We will take a good look at your drainage systems to be sure everything is flowing correctly and can advise you on what actions to take if a blockage or other issue is present.
