2 Ways to Activate Your Irrigation System

It’s important to know the state of your irrigation system before you really need it.  We offer two services to ensure that your system is ready for hot, dry days: irrigation activation and an irrigation audit.

Irrigation Activation

Call us for this service, and we’ll come and turn your system on, fire off each zone to determine that water flows properly through your system.  We’ll also set your timer to control when your system turns on, and for how long.  You’ll need to know the location of your system’s double-check valve and timer upon our arrival.

Early in the growing season, your irrigation system should act as a supplement to rain.  Typically, late May to early June is when temperatures really start to heat up, though we still receive some rainfall.  Late July and throughout August is when you’ll want to reset your timer to accommodate the hottest and driest months of the year.

Irrigation Audit

A thorough and comprehensive audit is recommended for any system that shows signs that repair is needed, or for new homeowners who have inherited irrigation systems they are not familiar with.

We’ll locate all zones and indicate which areas of your yard are covered by that zone.  Coverage is rated from poor to excellent.  We determine each zone’s particular style of irrigation head, as well as its condition.  If a repair is needed, we’ll tell you exactly what needs to be done and what specific parts will be used, along with a competitive price.  You’ll receive all of this information emailed to you in a report that you can reference for years to come.

Call us at 360-697-3215 or 253-530-0788 to schedule either service, at least two weeks in advance.
