Sprinkler Maintenance Tips

Not all sprinklers are created equal. In fact, some are better suited for particular tasks than others. And, some use water much more efficiently than others. Find out more about types of sprinklers here or watch this Garden Time segment.

The good news is that regardless of the type of sprinkler that you use, there are simple things you can do to ensure that the right amount of water gets where it is needed.

Maintenance checklist:

Each spring & fall you should call us to service your sprinkler system. We can help your irrigation system to keep it in prime condition for the next Summer and Winter. To do this:

  • Check to see that your sprinkler system is functioning correctly. Make sure that your sprinkler heads aren’t blocked and are directed to the plants you would like them to water.
  • Look for perpetual damp spots in your landscape as these might indicate a leak or broken line that will have to be fixed.
  • Get your back flow checked. If you have an automatic sprinkler system, chances are that you have a back-flow connection that is required by law to be checked annually.
  • Clear debris from your gutters and downspouts. This will prevent overflow and keep the water from your roof directed where you want it to go during Florida rain storms.
