[USPRwire, Wed Mar 31 2010] For over 17 years, Scott Halahan has been doing lawn sprinkler repair and sprinkler installation in Michigan. Going all the way back to his college years, Scott founded the company on the basis of helping his customer learn the appropriate maintenance tasks to fully extend the usable lifespan of the lawn sprinkler installations and avoid lawn sprinkler repairs in Michigan. Proper sprinkler winterization is just one critical part of proper sprinkler maintenance to maximize the sprinkler system’s lifespan. For this spring and the start of the 2010 watering season, Scott and the team at Old Faithful Sprinkler Systems offered the following simple maintenance and startup plan for any and all customers…
According to Scott, spring time start up tasks involve getting the sprinkler system ready for the season of usage by ensuring that all the components are clean, assembled and ready to operate together as a complete system. The lawn sprinkler system maintenance starts at the end where the water emerges. Checking that all the sprinkler heads are clean and free of dirt is the first step. Checking the alignment and position of the sprinkler heads is also a key point that many homeowners will overlook. Sprinkler heads are often knocked out of alignment by last fall’s activities, a frost heave during the winter or for many other reasons. A misaligned head will not operate properly and can create lawn sprinkler repair bills for other areas of the system due to pressure changes and unexpected operation. The 2nd part of Spring startup that helps avoid lawn sprinkler repair in Michigan involves checking for leaks. Leaks are often a cause of lower pressure and thus inoperable sprinkler heads as well as unwanted puddles and even have the potential of burning out other components. An improper sprinkler blowout from the previous fall may have in fact damaged part of the system and created leaks or other issues. Checking for these problems before the system goes into summer operation is important.
Finally the spring time start up tasks also involve checking the electronics and control systems of the lawn sprinkler system. Making sure the controller, timer, and all pumps and valves are operating as expected avoids creating other problems elsewhere in the system and keeps the lawn sprinkler repairs to a minimum. Scott also reminds us that spring time is a good time to check the batteries in the system if the control uses batteries.
Overall, proper maintenance to the lawn sprinkler system helps avoid costly lawn sprinkler repair in Michigan and part of that proper maintenance includes a proper system start up in the spring time. Old Faithful Sprinkler Systems offers a special “Spring Turn On” set of services for homeowners that do not want to take on the hassle of a doing it themselves and risking damage and lawn sprinkler repair bills from improper maintenance. They typically start offering Spring Turn On type services once the weather begins to warm up beyond freezing points, starting in Mid-April through May.
