Performing an irrigation startup is a crucial part of maintaining your irrigation system and preparing it for regular use again in the spring; ensuring that your irrigation system is reactivated and working properly is especially important with the hot weather here in Tennessee. For the best results, you should hire a professional to perform your irrigation startup service. Professionals will be able to identify and fix any small issues before they become bigger, more expensive problems. Professionals can also make sure your irrigation system is set correctly and check your backflow device while they are performing your startup.
1. Irrigation professionals can easily identify and fix small issues.
One advantage to having a professional perform your irrigation startup is that they can keep their eye out for any issues during the service. Irrigation professionals have extensive training under their belts and are experts when it comes to any problems concerning your irrigation system. So, if they notice anything out of sorts while they are starting up your irrigation system, they will be able to quickly identify the problem. Then, they will communicate the issue with you and create a plan to fix the issue before it becomes a larger, more expensive problem. If you perform your irrigation startup on your own, you won't be able to rely on the expertise of your local irrigation professionals, which could cost you more money in the long run if there are any unnoticed issues.
2. Irrigation professionals can set your system accurately.
One part of an irrigation startup is reactivating your irrigation system after being deactivated over the winter season. If you hire a professional to perform this service for you, they will also thoroughly inspect your irrigation system to ensure it is working properly. During this inspection, they will be resetting your irrigation system so it distributes the correct amount of water over all the zones of your lawn. This is very convenient because you won't have to worry if all the parts of your lawn are receiving the proper amount of water; your irrigation system will already be set and ready for regular use. By hiring a professional to perform your irrigation startup, you won't have to guess if your lawn is being watered correctly.
3. Irrigation professionals can perform backflow testing during your startup.
Backflow testing is often offered in tandem with irrigation startup services, which is very helpful and convenient; after all, backflow testing is extremely important when it comes to your health or the health of anyone else on your property. "Backflow" is when your irrigation system reverses direction and pulls dirty water into your clean water supply, contaminating it with bacteria, lawn fertilizers, and other hazardous substances. Your backflow device is what prevents this from occurring, which is why it is extremely important to have this mechanism tested regularly. If you hire a professional to perform your irrigation startup, backflow testing will be included in the service, so you won't have to worry about it.
The state of Tennessee requires annual backflow testing, so get it out of the way during your yearly irrigation startup service!
