Commercial Spinkler Head Repair
Irrigation systems have evolved with the times. As a nation, we are increasingly concerned with our environmental footprint. Maladjusted sprinkler systems waste water and don’t reach their intended target areas. There are many different types of irrigation systems to choose from. If you are not happy with your current system, it would be our pleasure to guide you in the right direction. In this hot Texas heat it is imperative that a well-integrated irrigation system is in place. This will guarantee that your turf and plants are well hydrated. Plush turf has a direct cooling effect on the indoor temperatures of adjacent property.
Sprinkler System Benefits
Sophisticated sprinkler systems are designed to dispense the appropriate amount of water at the right time. They should not waste water and should utilize it efficiently. The goal is to utilize a small amount of water to cover the largest area. New systems have the capability to detect moisture in the air. If you received rain that day, the preset timer will not trigger in the night because the technology is smart and realizes that your vegetation is already received enough moisture for the day. Irrigation systems save water when compared to outdated systems and manual watering. Paying someone to stand outside with a water hose for hours at a time for months on end is time consuming and inefficient when compared to automated sprinkler systems.
Types of Sprinkler Systems
There are several different types of sprinkler systems. In the interest of time, let’s focus on the three most popular. Soaker hoses conserve the most water. They allow water to seep through a porous membrane. Although, they are not the sexiest, they are preferred for water conservation. Drip irrigation systems are perfect for flowerbeds. They allow water to drip through tiny holes in the water hose. The water is dispersed throughout the soil and plants access the moisture via their root system. Spray systems are the most common. They also happen to be the biggest water wasters. The irrigation system is installed underground and water is emitted from a spray head. Unfortunately, most of the water is lost through evaporation before it reaches the intended area.
