In order to keep your lawns and gardens lush and healthy your sprinkler system should be maintained to optimum efficiency. Regular seasonal maintenance and periodic adjustments should be performed.
• Protect the entire system and provide continued warranty protection.
• Adjust for seasonal temperature changes and to ensure optimum plant growth
• Ensure maximum water efficiency.
• Most important is to protect your system from freeze damage and extend the life of your sprinkler system.

Freezing temperature can cause severe damage to your sprinkler system due to water freezing  in the lines, the frozen water will expand and rupture the pipes making repairs difficult to pinpoint and fix.
• We will close all water sources.
• Shut off all electrical power to the system.
• Use high pressure compressed air to eliminate all water from the underground lines. Preventing any residual water from freezing and damaging the system, Guaranteed!

Backflow PreventerTesting

Your local water authority may require an annual backflow prevention test to ensure that the backflow prevention device is preventing any irrigation water, from back-siphoning into your drinking water.
Our Certified backflow testers will perform this test on your property every three years for residential sprinklers systems and annually for commercial sprinkler systems.
