Preparing for Your Sprinklers
Installing your own home sprinkler system can save you money, but it's not one of the easiest do-it-yourself projects around. Planning and purchasing the right tools and parts are the keys to success. Keep in mind that putting in an irrigation system usually takes more than one weekend to complete. Maintaining an improperly installed system can be difficult to say the least, so take the time to do it right from the beginning. Always check your local building codes before starting an irrigation project.
In order to purchase the right components, you'll also have to determine your own specific:
- Water pressure in pounds per square inch (psi).
- Water meter size (for a municipal system) or well pump size (for a well).
- Water service line size.
- Water flow rate in gallons per minute (GPM).
- Type of backflow prevention required by local code.
But don't be discouraged, the great news is that if you decide to hire a professional Mr. Sprinkler has the knowledge to design and complete an installation to make your lawn and gardens lush and green.Call us at(385) 226-5764
