Frequently Asked Questions
What are the advantages of owning an automatic sprinkler system?
Many people say convenience is the biggest advantage to an automatic system since they don’t have to spend their time watering by hand or moving the hose around the yard. Others say extended plant life and lower water usage are the most important benefits. Still others believe a sprinkler system is one of the best financial investments they can make to their home since appearance is a key factor in determining market value. And guess what - they’re all right!
Will an automatic sprinkler system use more water than I’m currently using?
No. In fact, it will conserve water. You’ll never have to worry about run off from overwatering or wasting water when you forget to turn off the hose. And, with a moisture sensor, your system will know when it is raining and simply shut itself off when water is not needed.
Does having a sprinkler system really save time?
Yes. You won’t have to spend another minute of your valuable leisure time watering the lawn. Your new system will do all the watering for you - even when you’re away from home.
Will an automatic sprinkler system water as well as I can water by hand?
It will do a much better job because a professionally designed system will deliver exactly the right amount of water to individual lawn and garden areas.
We generally get 40 or more inches of rainfall a year. Do we really need a sprinkler system?
If it rained at your house every three days - the same exact amount each time - you probably wouldn’t need a sprinkler system. But nature doesn’t work that way, and the only way to ensure healthy, lush growth is to make certain your lawn and plants receive a regularly timed, evenly measured amount of water. In the dry season when there is little or no rain, your yard can suffer damage after just a few days without water.
Will I have difficulty operating this system?

We will also will work with you to explain the system’s operation. Then, if necessary, you can easily change the watering schedule by just following the easy instructions on the inside of the controller cabinet.
