Here’s some good advice on hiring an irrigation professional from R&R Sprinkler & Landscape.
Are you planning to install an irrigation system in your lawn? While doing this job yourself can save you money, there’s no guarantee that you’ll be able to complete the job successfully. There are aspects of irrigation system installation that should be left to the professionals. Since the system is complex, you can expect the installation to require some special tools. You need to make sure that the installation follows specific standards because the slightest flaws can make the system inefficient.
If you’re going to leave the job to a professional, you have the assurance that it will be completed to your satisfaction. The irrigation will also continue to function for years without requiring major maintenance. Calling a professional to install your irrigation will save you time, effort and money.
They remove obstructions
When installing the irrigation system, you need to make sure that tree roots and other forms of obstructions are properly removed. If you are going to do the job yourself, you must know the impact of these obstructions on the performance of your irrigation system. Although trees are known to provide an additional attraction to your landscape, once you dig, you will find out that the roots deter the irrigation system from functioning smoothly. Even if the roots don’t seem to interfere, not cutting them will give you a headache in the future. This potential problem can be properly addressed by experienced professionals.
They know the ins and outs of your water supply
Another issue that you might face when considering installing an irrigation system is the water supply. Before the installation takes place, you need to find out if the residents have rules when using water services in your area. You have to know if there is a need for installing a backflow prevention device to prevent using the city supply. Only professionals can help you understand these rules. They will make sure that your irrigation system is set up properly.
They pay attention to details
Professionals don’t immediately install the irrigation system because they need to look into every aspect of your property to ensure that they’re not breaking any rules. Having an eye for details is a must. So if you attempt to install a sprinkler system by yourself, failure to properly install the system can result in a big mess. You can clog your sprinkler system if you don’t know how they should be installed.
They can spot potential problems
There are problems that are hiding in plain sight. You can hit the gas, cable or other utility lines if you don’t take necessary measures to install the system. There is a good reason to hire professionals during the installation process. Professionals can understand the process and they know when something goes wrong. Digging up your own irrigation system is not worth the risk. You could end up hitting a utility line and it can be a costly mistake. Aside from having a disrupted service, you’ll need to pay to have the problem fixed.
While hiring a professional means paying for the service, it is still worth every penny because you know that you’re saving yourself the trouble.
