Keeping your property’s outdoor infrastructure well-maintained and up-to-date is essential, but caring for your irrigation system is crucial. Routine inspections and prompt repairs are necessary for your property’s irrigation. Unnoticed defects or leaks can result in water damage, flooding, and wasted water. Let’s explore some of the basics of maintenance for irrigation systems on your commercial property.
Why Immediate Action is Essential
Prompt repair is crucial for any irrigation system, particularly for systems with underground components. When large amounts of water leak from underground pipes, your landscape and building’s foundation can suffer. Unfortunately, taking quick action to repair damaged parts of underground irrigation systems can be incredibly difficult. First, detecting issues in buried components is significantly challenging. Aside from unusually damp soil, signs of any issues below ground are difficult to detect. If you suspect a problem with your sprinkler system, your irrigation service professionals may have to dig into your yard to find and address the issue.
Check For Missing Or Broken Sprinkler Heads
When sprinkler heads are missing or broken, water won’t be distributed across your property properly, causing wet spots and runoff. This can damage your lawn in the long run, as excessive wet areas will likely lead to over-watering. Plants receiving too much water impedes the roots’ ability to take up oxygen, damaging plant health.
Flush the System
You should ideally flush the system once in spring as the entrance of your lawn sprinkler system, and nozzles may be clogged with debris. A contaminated water source or regular wear and tear can also result in a clog. In addition to flushing the system, you should install screens on the sprinkler heads to enhance the filtration system and prevent clogs.
Invest in Routine Inspections
There are a few things property owners can do to ensure the health of their commercial irrigation systems. 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 wrong with your sprinkler system.
Inspecting your sprinkler regularly is essential because an efficient and well-maintained lawn sprinkler helps your lawn thrive.
