It doesn’t take much to prepare your sprinkler system for warm weather watering.
Sprucing up is simple with these four steps:
- Inspect sprinkler heads for clogs or damage.
- Connect sprinkler heads to pipes and hoses securely to avoid water loss. If you notice any pooling of water in your landscaping, there may be a leak in your system.
- Direct sprinklers toward your landscaping and avoid spraying sidewalks and driveways.
- Select a WaterSense-labeled weather-based irrigation controller to make sprinkler scheduling a no-brainer. By telling your system when and how much to water based on local weather conditions, a controller can help eliminate outdoor water waste.
By taking a little time to perform maintenance on your sprinkler system, your landscape and your wallet will thank you.
