Maintaining Underground Irrigation Systems
Keeping all of your property’s outdoor infrastructure well-maintained and up-to-date is important, but it is particularly crucial to care for your underground irrigation system. Routine inspections and prompt repairs are essential when it comes to your property’s irrigation. Any unnoticed defects or leaks can result in water damage, flooding, and wasted water. In this week’s blog, we explore some of the basics of maintenance for underground irrigation systems on your Delaware property.
Why Prompt Action is Essential
Prompt repair is crucial for any irrigation system, but particularly so for systems that have components housed underground. When large amounts of water leak from any underground pipes, your landscape and your home’s foundation can suffer. Unfortunately, taking quick action to repair damaged parts of underground irrigation systems can be incredibly difficult. For starters, detecting issues in buried components presents significant challenges. Aside from unusually damp soil, signs of any issues below ground are difficult to detect. Furthermore, if you suspect that there is a problem with your underground sprinkler system, your irrigation service professionals may have to dig into your yard to find and address the issue.
Routine Inspection by a Professional is Crucial
There are a few things that property owners can do to ensure the health of their irrigation systems. Home and business owners should always be on the lookout for atypical wet spots, dying or unusually lush plants, or a high water bill. These are all signs that something is not quite right below the surface of your yard. In addition to keeping a watchful eye over your property, you should enlist the help of an irrigation maintenance expert for inspections and upkeep. At Sposato Irrigation, our team of experienced professionals offers a variety of maintenance packages and other services to prevent, detect, and address problems with your irrigation system.
Seasonal Maintenance Concerns for Underground Irrigation Systems
Although dealing with maintenance concerns for underground irrigation systems can be quite challenging, these systems do have their perks. During the warmer months, underground irrigation systems allow you to thoroughly water your property with minimal interference with your landscape’s aesthetic. When the weather gets cooler, you may find that you can put off a sprinkler blowout until later in the season. Although underground sprinkler systems do receive some insulation from the winter weather by being underground, seasonal maintenance is still typically necessary for properties in Delaware. Consult the team at Sposato Irrigation for winterization and spring start-up services, and be sure to schedule a thorough inspection before starting up your sprinkler system for the spring.
