What to Expect when Installing an Irrigation System

Last updated 7 years ago

The installation of an irrigation system can be intriguing to watch and/or get involved with. The basic engineering of the groundwork is relatively simple, but there are many factors that can make a difference in your system’s overall efficiency.

As your plumber in Chicagoland, it is our goal to provide your lawn with the most efficient, dependable irrigation system available. But what should you expect when we come to install your irrigation system?

Don’t Fear the Shovels

Yes, there will be digging. No, we will not destroy your lovely lawn. In order to place an underground sprinkler system, there is no avoiding getting, well…underground. But we promise we will use every technique in our book to make this procedure as minimally invasive as possible. We’ll also check with your local utilities to make sure we aren’t disturbing other important underground elements, such as gas or phone lines.

Know How to Optimize

Your sidewalks, driveway, and decks don’t need watering, so why install a system that will waste water on them. Your plumber can show you special sprinkler heads and system layouts that prevent this occurrence and puts the water where you need it most—on your lawn.

Power it Up

Your underground irrigation system will require some type of controlling system, especially if you are using a timer. Expect to see your plumber calculating the best location for this system, installing it, and ultimately educating you on how to use it.
