With a severe drought in our area, it is more important than ever to make sure that your Frisco lawn sprinkler system is in good, working order. Pearson Sprinkler Company is routinely finding sprinkler controllers that are still set to water 4-5 times a week. In addition, we consistently see lawn sprinkler systems operating with broken spray heads or geysers. You can follow the trail of water to the nearest storm water drain. Pearson Sprinkler Company cannot emphasize enough, the importance of doing a thorough check of your lawn sprinkler system. The homeowner can do a simple check of their sprinkler system by turning on a single station at a time. Simply observe the station operating to see if there is a geyser or a section with low pressure. When checking stations such as flower beds, it is important to check the shrub risers against the house to verify that the risers are not misadjusted and spraying water onto the wall, or more importantly, window frames. We have had numerous calls over the years where a simple sprinkler problem has evolved into a complete window frame reconstruction. Situations like this could have been avoided by doing a routine and thorough check of the sprinkler system. Pearson Sprinkler Company recommends that you check your sprinkler system on a monthly basis. You would be surprised at how often that you find a broken spray head or bad polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipe connection.

Especially with Frisco lawn sprinkler systems, we have found poor workmanship in many of the newer subdivisions. In many cases the builders do not appear to budget very well for the lawn sprinkler system. This leaves the homeowner with a sprinkler system that has low-cost materials and poor workmanship. This is another reason that it is important to complete a routine check of your sprinkler system. There are literally hundreds of connections on a lawn sprinkler system that can spring a leak at anytime. Keep in mind that there are irrigation supply lines running throughout the yard, typically in the front yard and back yard. These lines can leak even with the controller turned off. A main line leak can usually be found by walking around the house and looking for any soggy spots. Pearson Sprinkler Company strongly recommends that homeowners learn how to shut off the water to their lawn sprinkler systems. The city requires a backflow device for sprinkler systems that have shut-off valves on them. Newer systems are required to have a PVC ball valve that can be a more reliable shut off. Take a minute to lean where these items are located and how to operate them. If you would like to learn more, please contact Pearson Sprinkler Company to make an appointment for us to come do a thorough check of your sprinkler system. At that time, we can show you how to set the controller, change your back-up battery, and show you where and how to isolate the water to your sprinkler system while maintaining service to your house.
