Frequently Asked Questions
Why should I install an automatic sprinkler system?
An automatic sprinkler system will save you water, enhance the value of your home, ensure a healthy, lush landscape, and save you time. And when you can’t be there, you can trust that your landscape will get the water it needs on schedule.
Will I use more water with an automatic irrigation system?
No, in fact you will reduce water consumption. Your landscape will be watered as required to ensure there are no brown areas and you’ll avoid over-watering to minimize run-off.
How do I know what type of system is best for me?
A professional irrigational contractor who understands the intricacies of soil type, plant requirements, weather conditions, and water source can guide you through the design process that will meet the needs of your landscape.
Do I have to reprogram the system when it rains?
No, all our designs include a rain sensor to shut off the sprinkler system so it does not waste water and flood plants.
Is there a warranty on the system?
All of our irrigation systems are backed by Hydra Spec’s two year installation warranty. Rain Bird offer a five year warranty on all products. Hunter provides a three year warranty.

What can we do now to make installation easier down the road?
Early consideration to future landscape use can impact future costs. If you think you may add a pool or water feature, walkways, or retaining wall the installation of conduit sleeves can be instrumental in future savings and landscape disruptions. But remember to seal the sleeve – and mark it – before burying.
