Sprinkler water timers are an efficient way to manage and keep your home’s irrigation needs in check. They can save you a lot of time, effort, and money in watering your lawn, helping you kill several birds with one stone.
Here are a few reasons why we love sprinkler water timers:
They take the guesswork out
Sprinkler water timers help you take the guesswork out of your lawn irrigation and maintenance. They let you establish a watering schedule that ensures your lawn is irrigated regularly. Even when you are not around, water sprinkler timers ensure your lawn is consistently watered at the set intervals.
They guarantee saturation
Lawn watering is never about making the grass wet. Too little water or too much water for your lawn is unhealthy. Therefore, lawn watering should be about saturating the soil and getting water to the grass’ roots to nourish it. Water timers help you achieve this by ensuring the lawn is watered at the appropriate time and at the right place, guaranteeing perfect saturation at all times.
They offer customizability
With season changes, or even with day-to-day weather changes, it’s vital to change your watering schedule to fit each weather pattern. Water sprinkler timers help you customize your watering schedule to adapt to each season or weather change, all year round.
They save money
Water timers help you save money by regulating the amount of water used watering a lawn. Without water timers, your sprinklers don’t know when to stop, and if you are not around, they can flood the lawn.
Consider installing sprinkler water timers on your lawn today and enjoy all the above benefits. Contact the professionals at WP Law Inc. for more on timers!
When you irrigation system is functioning properly, you can look forward to a lush, green and healthy property. But if the irrigation system develops a leak, all your efforts will go to ruin unless you quickly mitigate the problems. Here are three signs your irrigation has a leak.
1. Soggy Spots
If you’re walking around your property and notice that one area feels soggy or boggy underfoot, you may have detected a leak in your irrigation system.First, eliminate the possibility that the sogginess is simply a result of surface water accumulation due to a recess in the land topography. If not, investigate the irrigation system near that location to determine the exact source of the leak.
2. Unusually High Water Bills
Carefully monitor your water meter and bills so that you have a baseline for your property’s normal water usage in each season. A prolonged increase in water bills could mean that the water company has raised their rates, so it’s important to review your water meter readings in tandem with the water bills. If you notice a spike in the water bill along with unusually high meter readings, you may have a leak in your irrigation system.
3. Plants are Unhealthy Looking
Your irrigation system should ensure that all parts of your property are receiving adequate hydration. If you begin to notice that certain areas of your property are looking unhealthy, this is a sign that you may have an irrigation system leak. Telltale signs of an irrigation leak include yellow patches in one area, which indicates over watering, and dry, brown patches in another, which indicates that the leak is limiting water accessibility in that area due to reduced water pressure.
An irrigation leak that is left untended can wreak havoc with your property and profits. At the first sign of an irrigation leak, contact WP Law. We can help to determine the exact source of the leak, and implement solutions to take care of it.
Are you looking to keep your grass green and your garden growing all summer long without wasting resources? At W.P. Law Inc. we have the solution to your problem. Sprinkler pumps are the solution. They are designed such that they save you money while at the same time conserving resources. Sprinkler pumps provide a steady flow of water while providing enough pressure to push water out of the sprinkler head.
Several factors will affect the water pump used. They include;
How high are you pumping the water?
Before purchasing a pump, we advise our clients to measure the amount of lift required from the surface of the water source to the pump. It is much easier for the pump to push water out than it is for it to pull water up. Therefore, the higher you have to pump the water, the more powerful pump you need.
How far are you pumping the water?
The distance the water has to travel before it reaches the sprinkler heads will also affect your pump choice. The longer the distance between the pump and the sprinklers the more the friction, and the more powerful the pump should be to maintain optimum flow and pressure.
How wide is the area the sprinklers have to cover?
To figure out which pump you should purchase you should consider the area the sprinklers have to cover. First, you have to calculate the gallons per minute (GPM) for each sprinkler and then add them up. The sprinklers’ GMP and PSI (Pounds Per Square Inch) will affect the sprinkler pump required.
The terminology used regarding pumps can be confusing to most people. If you need help figuring out which pump you need, consider contacting W.P. Law Inc. for expert advice.
