Back Flow Inspection

Sprinklers work hard to keep your property hydrated. Failure to check on your backflow connection in the spring or the fall can lead to serious issues (and expensive repairs).

Check Sprinkler System Function

The summer is always a busy time, so you may not have been able to notice any issues that may have come up for your irrigation system. Now is the time to ensure your system is functioning at its peak efficiency — and if there’s a leak, a professional will fix it so it doesn’t become a larger issue down the line.

Rain Sensor

A rain sensor can help you save money and water in your home, so if you don’t already have one, we suggest having a professional come and install one. The sensor will shut off once an adequate amount of rain has accumulated — which is perfect for the fall season where it rains more often.


Winterization may be the most important part of your fall maintenance because it helps keep your system safe throughout the season. Our trained experts can handle this process for you.

  1. My sprinklers haven’t been working well this week and I’m considering having a repairman come look at them, though the problem may be that I didn’t have them winterized, as you suggested. While they’re being looked at, though, I like your idea of adding a rain sensor to save water, so I might talk to them about getting that installed after the repairs. The fact that it can measure more than just that there is water, but how much water is enough before shutting off, is really neat and would definitely be good for the health of my lawn.
