We can even go a step further, and do a thorough water audit. Landscape irrigation auditing is a great tool for lowering your water bills, and maximizing water efficiency. A Sprinkler Audit consists of three main procedures: Initial Site Inspection, Water Measuring, and Irrigation Schedule Adjustment. Each procedure is designed to result in significant water savings, along with making sure the proper amount of irrigation is reaching each individual zone dependent on what type of plant material is getting irrigated. A water audit is performed by laying out catch devices (Often plastic cups are used.) in a grid like pattern throughout the irrigated area. The zone is then turned on, and allowed to run for generally 10 to 15 minutes. The time is recorded, and the water within each cup is measured and recorded. Next we figure out the precipitation rate at which that zone is running. We do this by taking the average amount of water in each cup divided by the number of of cups, multiplied by 60. This gives us a valid “Inches per Hour”, and allows us to see how effectively the system is running. Because different plant material require alternate watering than turf, knowing the Inches per Hour rate will let us know where we can turn down the zones watering to save on water, but still effectively irrigate the zone.

Sprinkler Winterization and Blowout: What we do!

Winterize your Sprinkler SystemCrack in Backflow Device from Freezing        With the cold weather approaching, it’s time to think about preparing your Sprinkler System for winter. At Total Lawn Care we offer complete sprinkler system maintenance and winterization services. From a broken sprinkler ran over by a vehicle to a break in your sprinkler line, we can fix it!

        It is important to Winterize your Sprinkler System to avoid costly damages done by water expansion during the cold months. When systems are not properly drained, the most common damage is a split copper or ball valve on the back flow preventer. This repair is costly due to the time it takes to replace the copper parts and re-attach them. Poly Pipe that is not winterized will become brittle from the cold and when the water expands it breaks easily. Sprinkler heads with water left in them will also break when the water witin them freezes and expands inside.

        At Total Lawn Care we treat every system with the time necessary to perform a thorough winterization. After the initial hook up with our air compressor, we blow out every zone twice untill only a fine mist of water is evident. Upon the second run through of the system, we will catch any trapped water left in the system. Upon completing the removal of 99% of the water, we will double check the water shut off valve to make sure there is no leakage of the shut off valve.
