As the risk for freezing temperatures comes to an end for the season, everyone is thinking about their spring lawn and landscape honey-dos. Among fertilization, mulching, planting annuals, and spreading weed prevention is starting up your sprinkler system for the season. Commonly known as irrigation start-up service, we also call it summerization.
You might think, “how hard can it be? I just turn the system back on, and we’re ready to roll.”
However, if you do that, you could be in for some unpleasant surprises that could result in a slow or late start for your lawn and landscape’s best season (before the summer heat sets in.)
There are a few risky scenarios if you decide to start your irrigation system up on your own:
- Above ground damages such as cracks, broken sprinkler heads, or a cracked pressure vacuum breaker, that occurred over winter, could cause an immediate geyser and hundreds of gallons of water wasted.
- Hidden leaks could go undetected. Undetected leaks can go for months without being seen or felt. Then, you suddenly have a dead patch that was not receiving proper nourishment. Or you have a soggy, mucky, moldy spot that begins to wither and rot. And you’ll spend more on your water bill with no return on that investment to be seen in your landscape.
- You could program the water to run more than it needs to. Over-watering is much more prevalent than under-watering among irrigation system owners.
