Spring Start up includes the following services:
Turn on the water.
Check and flush all valves.
Align and adjust spray heads and rotors to ensure coverage.
Check main line and each zone for leaks.
Program the control box with a water-efficient schedule.
Spring is a time when entrapped air is likely to be a problem. This relates to the fact that accumulated fatigue damage due to water hammer effectively reduces the burst strength of the fittings. Thus, fittings that functioned fine when the system was drained in the fall suddenly break in the spring. To avoid this you should perform air-venting procedures every spring before start-up.
Monthly monitoring: because irrigation systems typically operate during the early morning or overnight hours, many systems suffer from deferred maintenance. Irrigation equipment may no longer be applying water evenly to the target landscape. Roots, animals, pedestrians, gardeners or plastic fatigue will cause required maintenance to an irrigation system. A monthly check will keep your system operating efficiently.
