Maintenance programs save you money! Much like an oil change for your car, we make sure your grass and landscapes have the exact amount of water for the season we are in. In the Kansas City area we experience a true 4-season year, which requires drastic changes in moisture needs of your grass and landscapes. While we make changes to your watering times, we will do a thorough check of all your irrigation components to ensure proper operation, and maintain optimal efficiency.
We have several Maintenance Programs to choose from. Our most popular program is the “Full Service” option, which includes a multitude of services, including four site visits to ensure all components of your system are are working correctly all year long.
Spring Start-up begins in March and early April. We begin this process by slowly priming all irrigation lines to eliminate any trapped air inside the irrigation lines which can cause pipes, fittings, valves, or sprinkler heads to crack. We check each sprinkler head for proper alignment and adjust as needed, clean any clogged nozzles, trim or uncover any overgrown valve boxes /sprinkler heads. We also check for leaks and insure the control clock is functioning and set at the desired watering times. All problems will be flagged and reviewed with home owner before any repairs are made.
Winterizing takes place late October through November. We will blow out irrigation lines using a high pressure air system. We drain the backflow valve and shut off the water supply to your irrigation system. This will help to prevent water from freezing in the irrigation lines, backflow, and valves which will cause cracks and other future problems.
BackFlow Testing is required by the state law, and needs to be done once a year. We will perform all the proper backflow testing processes that are required. KCIS will keep a copy of the backflow test, provide you with a copy, and submit all paperwork for the backflow test to the state. As with all mechanical systems, there may come a point in time when your irrigation system will need repair. It may be a sprinkler head that is leaking, or not turning. Or it may be a geyser in your front yard that is causing major flooding. Whether the problem is big or small, our highly trained, professional staff can handle it all.
