What do sprinkler system installation services include?
A new sprinkler system installation ensures your lawn gets the hydration it needs to keep it looking its best! From tee fitting and control valve replacement to setting a watering schedule, your Tasker can ensure that your water sprinkler system installation covers every blade of grass in your lawn! Here are a few things you can expect when installing sprinkler irrigation near you:
Assessment and evaluation
Before your yard sprinkler system installation, your Tasker can visit your home and assess your property. Your Tasker will call 811 first to have the gas lines, exterior lights, drainage pipes, and other yard utilities marked. This can help avoid damaging the underground wires. This can also be the perfect time to get a plumber and have your water flow systems checked.
Lawn care evaluation also includes contacting your local waterworks to know if there are any backflow preventer rules and regulations regarding a sprinkler system installation. Once everything is good to go, your Tasker can take measurements and identify where the valve boxes and sprinkler heads should be placed.
Once done with the inspection, your Tasker can proceed with creating an effective sprinkler system layout that is tailored to your needs. They can start with dividing your lawn into hydro zones or areas according to how much water they need respectively. It can be easier from the get-go if you have your garden planted and clustered according to which plants have similar water requirements. But hydro zones can also be based on the area size or shape, sunlight exposure, or soil type. Your Tasker can also help you pick your sprinkler heads and make sure that they meet the watering needs of your different hydro zones.
Here, your Tasker starts laying out the tools and materials needed for your sprinkler system installation, like shovels, metals or pipes for above-ground connections, a backflow preventer, fittings, and PVC or poly piping. Your Tasker can start digging trenches to prepare your lawn for your installation. Keep in mind that doing this may disturb some landscaping, depending on the layout of your sprinkler system design. Installation can be a messy business, so be sure that you have your grass mowed short the day before. This makes the entire job cleaner and easier!
Once done with trenching or excavating, your Tasker can now lay the pipes, connect the valves and the sprinkler heads, and add weather sensors. They can also connect the water supply line and irrigation system. Before leaving, they’ll make sure everything is running well and is in tip-top shape!
