The Importance of Lawn Sprinkler Startups in Denver

Posted: May 28, 2019

It’s no surprise, wintertime in Denver and the surrounding areas comes with its own package of both beauty and headaches. We hunker down and bear through the snowy months; and when all is said and done the warming lights of Spring always bring a much welcomed relief. Spring also brings its own responsibilities for your lawn and sprinkler system.

Sprinkler System Startup for your Commercial Property

If you own or manage a commercial property, Springtime means time to renew and reinvigorate those winter-ravaged landscapes and repair any damage from low temperatures. Damages to your sprinkler system can ruin a previously serene landscape, costing you time and money.

Professional sprinkler system startup services are a MUST for any property owners/managers in the Denver Metro area. Many pass it off as an easy task, but improper initial startup of your system can result in damages and other issues which far outweigh the price of calling in a technician to ensure the job is done right.

Is it Time to Start Up my Sprinkler System?

With the winter weather in Denver we can receive snow well into May (sometimes even June). Having your sprinkler system running before underground temperatures are above freezing (32°F) can cause still-frozen lines to burst. This leads to excessive lawn damage and possible flooding. The broken sprinkler lines will need to be identified and repaired to mitigate further damage.

Is my System in Proper Working Order?

Winter ice and freezing conditions can cause a multitude of damages to your irrigation lines, sprinkler heads, and more. Oftentimes damage happens through the winter months and goes unnoticed because the system isn’t in use. If you had a system blowout in the previous fall you’ll probably avoid most damage through the winter months from the elements. Any excess water should be removed from the system before shutting down for the winter.

However; cold and freezing weather aren’t always the culprit. Blocked or damaged sprinkler heads on the surface can lead to line ruptures and excessive water-waste. Every year proper inspection before sprinkler start up and testing of the running system is necessary to ensure the system is working properly. This also includes proper scheduling and making sure the lawn zones are getting proper watering. Moving into summer, this will keep your lawns green and water bill low.
