Now here’s a question I get asked every day. Is there any upkeep involved after the installation? Typically there are two service appointments, sometimes three for a sprinkler system. In the spring, turning on the system means checking the control panel, checking the valves, checking the heads and making sure all these components are working properly. I also recommend cutting and trimming the grass from around each head so they’re not blocked so this way they are performing optimally. You can repeat these steps in the summer as well after you’ve had a season full of thatch and growth. In the fall, the most critical service takes place which is called winterization. You have to have a professional contractor come out, force air through the system which will then purge the water out so it’s safe for the winter so it doesn’t freeze and crack.
