Starting Up Your Sprinkler System
Spring, the most exciting and lively time of the year, is right around the corner. Warmer weather is on the way, bringing with it new life and green beauty. Of course nothing will grow without a little water, so if you have a sprinkler system, this is the time to get it started up again.
A Spring Start-Up is the first step to getting your sprinkler system fired up again. It can be a complicated process, and it is best to hire a professional to take care of this for you. If Paramount installed your sprinkler system, we will come out to start-up your system. Start-ups typically occur in April, depending on the weather.
The first step of the process is a visual inspection of the sprinkler system. If any damage is noticed, it must be repaired before moving on to the next step. Our trained professionals can spot any problems that may have occurred while the system was dormant over the winter, and work quickly to repair them.
The next step is to slowly fill the system back up with water. Water must be reintroduced to the system at a particular rate in order to achieve a proper flow. Once the water is flowing properly, it is ready to be turned on a reprogrammed. How the system is programmed depends on your location and the average rainfall that you receive. The settings can be changed throughout the summer as the rainfall rates may change.
Once the system is turned on and programmed it is time for a final visual inspection. It is important to ensure that all sprinkler heads are working properly and hitting the areas that you want targeted.
