Compared to the price of manual watering your lawn, installing a sprinkler system will significantly reduce your water bill in the long run. However, even after installation, there are still ways to reduce your water bill; simply ensuring your sprinkler system is running optimally can drive down your monthly spending. With gallons of water flowing every minute, you need to ensure no water is being wasted. Making even the smallest changes or repairs can bring huge reductions on your next bill! Here’s some advice from your local Sprinkler System experts: Check Your Sprinkler Heads Faulty sprinkler heads are often the common cause of wasted water, and checking them over is a straightforward task that can detect the cause of your rising water bill. A loose or clogged sprinkler head will mean water is being overused and misused. A part replacement or tightening of the head will ensure water is being sprayed at the correct pressure, in the correct areas. Our Clearwater sprinkler repair team can make sure all your sprinkler heads are up to date and can repair any faulty parts for you with no hassle. Check for Leaks If your bill has been rising fast, then the culprit is probably a leak. A typical leak can in just 15-minutes waste around 230 gallons of water. Leaks can appear in under or overground pipes, due to growing tree roots, mower contact or just general wear and tear. You can make a quick check for leaks by turning off all water outlets and then checking the meter. If it’s still spinning, then you know you have a leak. A sprinkler repair expert can use their specialist knowledge and tools to find the exact location of the leak, and fix the problem to save you money!

Drainage is an overlooked area of general garden and lawn maintenance, which if neglected can quickly leave you with a bunch of problems to fix. When excessive water and rain fails to drain away properly, it can cause flooding. Flooding can destroy a lawn, leave standing water, promote the growth of disease and potentially affect neighbors too. With some easy and simple steps, however, you can improve your drainage system and prevent floods. Our Clearwater Irrigation Team can also analyze and take care of your irrigation and drainage systems if you need the help of a professional and local team. Keep Leaves out of Drains and Gutters Even the very best, self-sufficient irrigation systems can't prevent leaves getting blown into drains and gutters. A simple leaf clog can quickly cause flooding and potentially more significant problems. Use a rake or leaf blower to clear up any leaves that may collect on storm drains to prevent this. A simple clear out of leaves in your drains and gutters every few months can save you from a lot of trouble in the long run. Avoid Leaving Leaves and Dead Vegetation On Your Property If you've been working on your garden and have a pile of leaves or discarded plants, be careful not to leave them in areas where they can get washed or blown towards sprinkler heads or drain covers. Check for leaks or damage to pipes if you see flooding If you suspect there is a deeper problem with your irrigation system and have noticed flooding, then try to inspect your property for any signs of leaks and damage. If possible, direct the water flow away from your home's foundations and towards drains. Get an expert to check for leaking valves or Low Head Drainage Problems An expert can come and [...]

Watering your Lawn during the summer isn’t quite as simple as everyone believes. Sunlight that can damage and dry out grass has led to the myth that it needs watering when it’s hot and sunny during the day. In fact, this can actually damage your garden due to the magnification of the sun’s rays from the water. Good techniques can help prevent disease and insect growth whilst keeping your lawn lush: Use your eyes An easy way to see if the grass is in need of an urgent watering is to walk over it. If your footprints don’t disappear quickly after walking over it, it’s because its blades are too dry to spring back! Morning is the Optimal Time for Watering your Lawn The morning is the ideal time to water your lawn. It may seem like your grass will need refreshing in the mid-day sun, but that water will be wasted as it dries out too quickly and actually magnifies the sun’s intensity. Instead, aim to have your sprinkler system set up to work in the A.M. It will do the work for you when the air is cooler and the wind is typically still, so water isn’t blown away. Evening watering is also not ideal, due to the fact temperatures will drop off significantly during the night and disease of your grass will be a serious risk. The water will just stay on the grass, helping to create fungus. The optimal times to have your sprinkler system running will be typically in the 4. am. to 10.a.m window. Healthy Soil Absorption is Essential It’s the not all about the grass, the soil is the key to your lawn’s health. During summer, water run off can become a problem. This occurs when watered too quickly. So, it is important [...]
