It will last how long?

In the metro Atlanta area, where the beauty of a lush, green lawn is a point of pride for homeowners, the convenience of maintaining such splendor is key. A well-maintained sprinkler system is an essential component of this ease, ensuring your lawn and shrubs stay healthy and vibrant with minimal effort on your part.

The Importance of Regular Maintenance

Even if you already own a sprinkler system, it’s vital to assess its condition periodically. An improperly functioning system not only leads to water waste and unnecessary expense but can also detrimentally affect the appearance and health of your lawn and landscaping.

Regular upkeep is crucial for maximizing the lifespan of your system. By maintaining its various components, you can significantly extend its utility and efficiency.

Component Lifespan and Upkeep

The longevity of sprinkler heads and valves can vary based on climate, water quality, and pressure. Typically, valves last between 10 to 15 years, while controllers, due to technological advancements, might need updates sooner to leverage new features and efficiencies, despite having a similar lifespan.

Interestingly, the underground pipes of an irrigation system are among its most durable elements, potentially lasting indefinitely with proper care, as they are shielded from direct sunlight and the elements. Wiring, however, is more vulnerable to corrosion, often stemming from inadequate installation practices. Part of Sprinkalawn’s maintenance service includes a thorough inspection of the system’s wiring to prevent such issues.

Common Causes of System Failure

An irrigation system’s failure can result from various factors, including its age, proximity to tree roots, past repairs, vandalism, rodent damage, and water quality.

A system’s longevity begins with its design and installation, incorporating considerations such as shade, soil type, water pressure, and drainage. Opting for a reputable company like Sprinkalawn for installation ensures that lines are correctly laid, wires are durably spliced, and the system is optimized for efficient water use.
