Midland Sprinkler System Installation-An Info

Every year, we instal roughly 50 sprinkler systems in both residential and commercial settings. Both systems are comparable; however, commercial systems are typically larger and require more expensive equipment. I’ll discuss the characteristics of a high-quality home system.

First and foremost, obtain 2 to 3 bids from licenced contractors with at least 3 to 5 references from the Landscaping Contractors Board (LCB). Have a written contract with all of the system’s components and specifics, written instructions on how to run it, and a comprehensive plot plan/as built of the valves, wires, heads, and pipe routs.
Most importantly, obtain a one-year written warranty so you have a growing season to use the system and work out any faults with the settings, etc. We provide complete 5-year warranties on all parts and labour related with any manufacturer’s defects or installation issues to all of our customers.
We mostly employ Hunter Industries and Rain Bird as sprinkler manufacturers. Both companies are excellent, but I prefer the Hunter systems because they are more user-friendly, and the company works hard to resolve warranty concerns and provides excellent customer service. The following are some things to look for in your proposal: Main lines must have a minimum depth of 16 to 18 inches, and lateral lines must have a minimum depth of 12 inches or more.
Back flow device- The contractor must pay for and obtain a permit to instal the state-approved anti-siphon apparatus, also known as a back flow device, according to state legislation. Febco or Watts are the two main producers, and both provide excellent products.
Wiring – wires connect the solenoid valves to the controller in all systems. Make sure the wires are taped to the bottom of the pipes so that if a break occurs later, the wires will not be cut by a shovel and can be quickly discovered for repairs.
Insist on the contractor putting the job’s cleanup specifics in writing. Your yard will be ripped up, and it will be the contractor’s task to put it back together. Yes, it can be difficult not to remove a plant or some sod for the pipes when installing the backflow. However, securing a comprehensive plan of action for how the trenches will be rebuilt with seed or sod can save you a lot of time and aggravation.
