Sprinkler Installation and Repair
A properly installed sprinkler system makes your life easier while ensuring your plants and yard are well taken care of. Thanks to these systems, we don’t have to worry as much about watering our plants and lawns. That's because sprinkler systems make it easy to water our plants and lawns. Installing a sprinkler system in your yard can positively impact your home’s value, increase its resale price and extend the useful life of the lot. However, the same investment has the potential to cause harm as well if not done properly. Equally important is being able to identify leaks and sprinkler issues to protect your property and home. Installing a sprinkler system without understanding its function, limitations, maintenance and repair can lead to water damage within your home. It is important to learn about the different types of sprinkler systems that are available as well as their respective pros and cons before making a purchasing decision. Moreover, knowing how to repair a sprinkler system (or spot issues so you know when it needs to be inspected) not only saves you time and money but also extends its useful life. Investing in a sprinkler system is a wise choice for your home and yard assuring you that your investment in your yard is being maintained. There are of course numerous benefits to having a sprinkler system. 316Landscaping is an experienced landscaping company serving the entire Wichita area and we are experts at sprinkler repair and installation.
Sprinkler systems are a great way to keep your lawn green year-round. They provide a constant supply of water, keeping the soil moist and preventing weeds from growing. Sprinkler systems also reduce the frequency of watering by watering only when needed. This can significantly reduce watering costs compared to watering daily. Sprinkler systems work best when used in conjunction with a soil moisture sensor. When soil moisture in your yard is below a certain level, the system will automatically turn on to keep the soil at the proper level. Unlike a hose system that was once commonly used for watering lawns and gardens, a sprinkler system is a network of connected piping and valves used for watering plants. Sprinkler systems vary in size, shape and location. Some are installed around the perimeter of the yard while others are used throughout the yard. Most commercial properties, public parks and golf courses use sprinkler systems to water grass, shrubs and trees.
Homeowners can choose to use sprinklers that run on a timer or use the manual function to turn the sprinklers on and off when. Sprinklers are typically made up of 3 parts: the sprinkler head, the mounting bracket and the connection pipe. Sprinkler systems come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Depending on the size of your yard and the type of landscape you’d like to create, you may want to choose a smaller or larger sprinkler system. Sprinkler systems lower your water bill and water your yard in the most effective way possible. This also ensures your plants will have a much better chance of thriving. Sprinklers are an easy way to make sure your plants are getting the right amount of water and nutrients they need. When choosing what type of sprinkler to purchase or install, make sure to get one that can be adjusted to the specific needs of your garden. This can be as simple as getting one that has multiple heads or as advanced as choosing a system that has sensors that know when it needs to be watered.

Repairing a Sprinkler System
Repairing a sprinkler system issue can be as easy as tightening a sprinkler head and as difficult as removing broken pipes underground. It is important that a professional assists you in diagnosing the issue prior to repairing it because the issue might be largest than it appears. The main components of a sprinkler system are the pipe, valve and sprinkler head. When one of these components is damaged, faulty or not working properly, the sprinkler system will not work properly. As soon as you realize that your sprinkler system does not work, contact a professional immediately. To diagnose and repair a sprinkler system, a professional needs to inspect the pipe and the sprinkler head. The pipe in a sprinkler system will be connected to a valve and it is important that both are inspected. Water will flow through pipes when they are not clogged. If water does not flow, the reason most likely is that the pipe or the sprinkler head has been damaged.
