Basic maintenance is required to ensure the effective operation of your system. The most important services are the fall winterization and spring start-up. In the fall, we shut down the system and blow out the lines to eliminate the risk of freezing pipes. In the spring, we turn the system back on, evaluate each zone, adjust heads, and reset the controller.
Because weather conditions in the Midwest vary so greatly between the spring start-up service and the fall winterization, we strongly recommend that you also consider the summer efficiency adjustment program. This program allows us to identify repairs that may have arisen during the watering season and make important adjustments to your watering schedules to accommodate the hot summer months. Proper watering schedules in the hot summer months are critical to the long-term health of your lawn and plants.
