Reduce Irrigation Costs

ATZ Irrigation Best Lawn Sprinkler Repairs Tampa Bay

Here at ATZ Irrigation we always want to help people by providing the best information about lawn sprinkler systems. This article by Buildings.com shows four ways to help reduce irrigation costs and optimize your irrigation system.

Proper irrigation practices will always preserve the look of your lawns and landscaping, but many facilities are wasting water with their irrigation systems, and the costs add up quickly. According to the EPA, “As much as 50% of this water is wasted due to overwatering caused by inefficiencies in irrigation methods and systems.” – Buildings.com

 

Proper Maintenance and Oversight

Proper maintenance is always an issue when it comes to irrigation systems. Discuss how irrigation requires regular attention in.. But also how uncommon the lack of proper expertise in regards to your irrigation system can cause more harm than good.

  1. Overhead vs. Drip

It has been overly noted through valid research that overhead sprinkler heads cause for more irrigation waste. At ATZ irrigation we can design any type of drip system for any type of landscape.

Drip systems provide a steadier flow of water that goes directly into the soil. When installed correctly, drip irrigation can reduce water use by 10-20% compared to a sprinkler system, according to Buildings.com. However, the problem with drip irrigation is that it requires meticulous maintenance.

This is why home & business owners should always call a professional to exert proper maintenance of their irrigation system.

  1. Irrigation Control and Scheduling

Also, it is important to have a proper schedule that changes with the times and seasons.

“Changing schedules is important so you reduce your water use and it treats the plant material better,” having the proper system and maintaining a correctly is one thing but utilizing technology to make sure that you are systematically scheduling and controlling the flow rate over your Landscapes is very important and something that is very overlooked.

At ATZ irrigation have over 30 years of experience as local professionals who can set you up with a foolproof schedule to best suit your landscape (upon installation or repair).

4) Landscaping

The final consideration for reducing irrigation water costs is focused on the spaces you are watering. Using the right plants and landscaping strategies can reduce costs substantially. While we do not provide landscaping services if you need help we would be more than glad to point you in the right direction.

Our primary focus is on lawn sprinkler systems. Most companies that you find doing lawn irrigation and landscaping are the jack of all trade types who typically are unlicensed and do not have the overall knowledge and consideration for proper irrigation systems.
