From the Spring Start-Up to the System Performance Evaluation to the end of the year winterization, Spring-Green’s trained technicians will inspect, repair and help maintain irrigation systems so they run efficiently throughout the year. In the spring, the Spring-Green Start-Up process includes 10 vital steps that ensures proper operation of the irrigation system. This includes everything from ensuring the main water supply is on to priming the mainline.

As the season changes from a mild and wet spring to a hot and dry summer, irrigation systems require fine tuning to maintain peak operating performance. A mid-season system performance evaluation includes resetting the controller, checking for leaks, cleaning out overgrowth around sprinkler heads, ensuring rotors are turning properly, leveling sprinkler heads and diagnosing system repairs.

Proper winterization of the system is one of the most important factors in determining the lifespan of irrigation equipment. Spring-Green’s winterization visit includes blowout of sprinkler heads, rotors, valves and lines before freezing temperatures set in. Having an irrigation system winterized by a Spring-Green professional is the best protection against freeze damage.
