Well FINALLY Spring is here and that means it’s time to get your lawn sprinkler systems up and running.

Those of us in New Jersey have had our sprinkler systems turned off for the cold Winter months, now as the Spring Start-Up is being performed, problems may be found that need attention.

Common things that need to be addressed when starting the lawn sprinklers for the Spring are:

  • Reprogramming the Controller
  • Readjusting the sprinkler heads
  • Replacing sprinkler nozzles
  • Repair of underground leaks
  • Re-assembly of the PVB (Backflow Preventor)

Addressing these common issues prior to the weather becoming hot and dry will save you time, aggravation and money.

Most of the above can be taken care of by the homeowner, however when there is a time a Professional is needed, it is beneficial to make sure the Pro making any repairs or changes to the system is Licensed and Insured to do so, such as the Irrigation Technicians at Elite Lawn Sprinklers, Pools & Spas.
