Irrigation Systems

A+ offers residential and commercial irrigation systems sales and service for lawns that are designed to efficiently water the grass and landscaping around your property. These systems typically consist of several components:

  1. Sprinkler Heads: These are the devices that distribute water over the lawn. There are various types of sprinkler heads, including fixed spray heads, rotary heads, and drip emitters. The choice of sprinkler head depends on factors such as the size and shape of the lawn, the water pressure available, and the type of vegetation being irrigated.
  2. Piping: PVC or polyethylene pipes are commonly used to carry water from the water source (often the main water line of the house) to the sprinkler heads. The piping is buried underground to prevent damage and maintain the aesthetics of the lawn.
  3. Valves: Valves control the flow of water to different zones of the irrigation system. Each valve is connected to a specific set of sprinkler heads, allowing for individualized watering schedules for different areas of the lawn.
  4. Controller: The controller, often located indoors, is the brains of the irrigation system. It allows homeowners to set watering schedules, specify watering durations, and adjust settings based on factors like weather conditions and seasonal changes. Some controllers even have smart features that can automatically adjust watering based on real-time weather data.
  5. Backflow Preventer: This device ensures that water from the irrigation system doesn’t flow back into the house’s water supply, preventing contamination.
  6. Rain Sensor: A rain sensor can be integrated into the irrigation system to detect rainfall and prevent unnecessary watering. When it rains, the sensor triggers the controller to pause watering until the soil needs moisture again.
  7. Pressure Regulator and Filters: These components help maintain the proper pressure and quality of water flowing through the system, ensuring efficient operation and preventing clogs in the sprinkler heads.

Residential irrigation systems can be customized based on the specific needs of the lawn and the preferences of the property owner. Proper design, installation, and maintenance are essential to ensure the system operates efficiently, conserves water, and keeps the lawn healthy and green.
