Irrigation systems are a rather complicated combination of pipes, valves, control wire, controller, fittings and sprinkler heads. The elements that sets one contractor apart from another is their level of expertise in areas such as hydraulics and electrical properties, irrigation system design, product selection, installation technique, employee training and quality control.
The system design process begins with the water supply (available gallon per minute and static pressure.) The initial system layout begins with head placement, and is accomplished by proper product selection and head spacing. Pipe sizing takes into account the length of the pipe run, the friction loss, and the velocity of water flow through the pipe. These calculations determine the size of the pipe required to provide sufficient water flow and pressure, thus providing a quality system.
Oftentimes contractors, with the best intentions, have no true understanding of the above information. In such cases problems may not arise until we reach extended periods with little rainfall. Hiring a qualified and experienced professional can eliminate those issues.
At Advanced Sprinkler & Backflow Inc., we design and install sprinkler systems of all sizes. Our trenchless installation provides a quality installation that is second to none and minimally invasive to your existing lawn.
