Spring into Action with IVP's Sprinkler System Start-Up

As the chill of winter fades, it’s time to ensure your sprinkler systems are ready for the season. Our spring start-up service is designed to take the hassle out of getting your irrigation system up and running.

We handle everything from inspection to system start-up repairs, ensuring you can enjoy a green, lush lawn without the fuss. With us, your sprinkler system start-up will be a breeze.

Our Start-Up Service: Ensuring a Leak-Free Sprinkler System

At the heart of our start-up service is an exhaustive check for leaks. We inspect every part of your sprinkler system, including sprinkler heads, valves, pipes, and more.

Our skilled technicians will identify any potential leaks or damages in the irrigation system, preventing water wastage and saving you money in the long run. A leak-free sprinkler means more efficient watering, a healthier lawn, and less stress on your wallet.

Controller Programming for Efficient Water Usage

Water efficiency is crucial, and we understand that. With our service, we not only check your system for leaks but also program your controllers for maximum water efficiency. This includes programming individual zones, and adjusting the watering schedule to ensure each zone of your lawn gets the right amount of water at the right time.

Now, that’s smart irrigation!

Your Spring Start-Up Checklist

We understand that an irrigation system start-up can seem daunting. But don’t worry, we’ve got you covered. Our comprehensive spring start-up checklist makes it easy to know what steps we’re taking to get your system ready for the season.

  1. Ensure all manual drain valves are in the “closed” position before initiating the system.
  2. Gradually open the main water valve of the system to prevent surge pressures and water hammer due to rapid filling.
  3. Access the irrigation main water shut-off point to pressurize or charge the mainline.
  4. Keep a close eye on the mainline to detect any visible leaks or disturbances in the water meter.
  5. Make sure to manually turn on each zone valve from the controller to double-check their functionality.
  6. Run a systematic check of each zone, looking out for winter damages to heads or leaks in the lines.
  7. Conduct a thorough inspection of all zones, including the manifold and valve box, for potential leaks or damages.
  8. Inspect each station on the controller for correct operation and pressure levels; low pressure could signify a line break or missing sprinkler.
  9. Clean or replace filters on poorly performing sprinklers and adjust heads to grade, as needed.
  10. Check the sprinkler heads for appropriate alignment, height, and functionality to prevent damages, especially from lawn maintenance equipment.
  11. Monitor and adjust sprinkler head settings to achieve maximum water flow and optimal plant growth.
  12. Ensure the electrical continuity of the system by verifying that all zones are accurately responding to the controller’s commands.
  13. Set the controller programming based on the client’s preferences, lawn maintenance schedule, and water efficiency guidelines. Change the backup battery of the controller if it’s necessary.
  14. If your system has a rain sensor, uncover it and ensure it’s thoroughly cleaned.
  15. If applicable, finish the job by tidying up any in-line filters found in your drip irrigation zones.
  16. If larger scale repairs are identified during the inspection, schedule an additional appointment as necessary.

Save Money with a Water Efficiency Check during our Irrigation System Start-Up

Water efficiency isn’t just about saving water; it’s about saving money too. During our spring start-up service, we perform a detailed water efficiency check. By identifying and addressing leaks, adjusting the controller programming, and ensuring all zones are receiving optimal irrigation, we can significantly reduce water wastage. This way, your lawn remains vibrant and lush while keeping your water expenses to a minimum.

Ensure All Your Sprinkler Heads Are in Top Working Condition

Did you know that a single malfunctioning sprinkler head can significantly reduce your irrigation system’s efficiency? That’s why one of our crucial start-up tasks is to check all your sprinkler heads. Our technicians ensure they are working properly, offering the right coverage, and not wasting water. A well-functioning sprinkler head is key to an effective irrigation system.

Also, ensure that your system gets winterized properly at the end of the season, or it can cause damage to your system.
