Do you spend more time than you’d like watering your lawn and flower beds? Manually moving that portable sprinkler around the lawn can be taxing. Not to mention, you run the risk of overwatering some areas of the lawn. In contrast, with a lawn sprinkler system from Spartan Irrigation, you won’t have to worry about water waste and manual adjustments. Our sprinkler systems are designed to make your life easier and your lawn greener. So, to help entice you to make the decision, we’re answering some of the most common questions we get asked.

4 FAQs About Sprinkler Systems

1. Will a sprinkler system really save me time?

An automatic sprinkler system can save you time since you don’t have to worry about hooking up the hose, turning it on, and monitoring the progress. Our sprinkler systems are powered by a control box and run either off a timer or weather sensor. These systems even handle everything while you’re away on vacation, so you can focus more on family time and spend less time worrying about your lawn. 

2. Does a sprinkler system save me money on water?

Yes, a sprinkler system can help save money on water usage. Because the system is set to your preferences and needs, you never have to worry about watering zones that don’t need it or missing zones that do. You can easily adjust the sprinkler heads to provide proper lawn coverage. Depending on your current watering practices, residents may see a significant decrease in utility bills once they switch to an automatic sprinkler system.

3. Do I still have to worry about dry spots?

No. The reason you worry about them now is because you’re eyeballing where your sprinkler is aiming and the coverage it’s providing. Manual sprinklers also don’t come with the number of settings that an automatic one does, making it even more difficult to target where the water goes. Each sprinkler head in our systems has a purpose and exact coverage function that provides accurate watering and, therefore, peace of mind. 

4. What’s included in a sprinkler system?

The most basic sprinkler system consists of a controller, valves, sprinkler heads, and a network of underground pipes. Depending on the features of the controller you choose, the system can be monitored for moisture in the soil, weather predictions, valve control, water pressure, and sprinkler performance. It’s important to understand that this is a quick overview of the entire system, and that your sprinkler needs are completely customizable.
