A home irrigation system such as a sprinkler setup must be properly maintained to ensure that the system continues to operate at its full potential. Without the proper maintenance, the irrigation system can become clogged or suffer from wear which will result in a faulty irrigation system that does not perform its job properly.
There are a few basic things one can do to maintain their irrigation system, the first is to ensure that their sprinkler system is in proper working order. The person may check the sprinkler heads to see whether they're clogged with dirt clumps or other vegetation. Aside from checking the sprinklers for a clog, it is also important that one place their sprinkler system in a proper fashion to create an optimum irrigation system within their home.
Individuals may also utilize irrigation controllers to manage multiple different aspects of the sprinkler system. Irrigation controllers may be used to control the times sprinklers are active, the intensity of the water that is emitted as well as the areas sprinklers are active. The person may use the irrigation controller to configure the sprinklers to run in a certain vegetation zone while the rest of the system is powered down. Properly controlling an irrigation system will help to cycle sprinklers off and on for different areas of the property so they're not running constantly. Cycling an irrigation system may also be used in conjunction with the current weather effects to maximize the water saturation among the landscape.
It is also important to maintain sprinkler heads that have been broken or chipped. Not only do damaged sprinklers cost more money because of a waste of water, they can also damage the landscape by flooding out the lawn or may inhibit other areas of the landscape from growing properly because of a deficient water supply.
