Spring Startup

Spring Startup

Turf Rain starts your season on the right foot with an irrigation system start-up check

Spring start-up consists of our highly experienced and trained technician coming and giving a full check-up to your irrigation system. It starts with pressuring your irrigation lines by turning on the main water supply, which is dedicated solely to irrigation. He will then check your control panel, changing the battery back-up pack, as well as programming it.

Our technicians are qualified to program and work over 100 different types of controllers. The technician will then check each one of your stations via the control to check electrical connection between then controller and the electronic valves. As each station turns on, the technician will make the necessary adjustments to sprinkler heads which need it. The technician will then check the irrigation valve box to make sure all is okay in the box. During this service is when the technician will notify you of any repairs needed in the system, and will do the required or recommended repairs.

The technician will then test the rain sensor given there is one attached to the system. The technician will program the controller according to the weather conditions and water usage average needed per system. Some possible repairs that are common and likely to come up can be leaks, heads which are not rotating, nozzles which are clogged, broken heads, valve solenoids which are no longer receiving any power, leaky valves, rain sensors which aren’t functioning any more, etc… This service is very important; it will help you save time and money, along with a healthy looking lawn before you know it.
