Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will an automatic sprinkler system use more water than I am currently using?
A: No. In fact, it will conserve water. You will never have to worry about runoff from over watering or wasting water when you forget to turn off the hose. And, with a Rain Bird moisture sensor, your system will know when it is raining and simply shut itself off when water is not needed.

Q: Does having a sprinkler system really save time?
A: Yes. You wonít have to spend another minute of your valuable leisure time watering the lawn. Your new system will do all of the watering for you ≠ even when youíre away from home.

Q: Will an automatic sprinkler system water as well as I can water by hand?
A: 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.

Q: Are there different systems from which to choose?
A: Although every system should be tailored to meet individual needs, a typical system will be comprised of a controller (which functions as the brains of the system), valves (which open and close to release and stop the flow of water to underground pipes), and sprinklers (which actually distribute the water to a given area). Itís best if all components of a system are manufactured by the same company in order to ensure that they are designed of work well together.

Q: Will I have difficulty operating the system?
A: I will help you select the best controller for your needs, and set it with your individual watering schedule. I will explain the systemís operation. Then, if necessary, you can easily change the watering schedule by just following the easy instructions on the inside on the controller cabinet.
