What’s an efficiency tune up? For irrigations systems it is the action of repairing, adjusting or improving how efficiently and accurately your system applies the water to the intended area. For example, on turf the goal is to have the sprinklers spray water uniformly over the lawn. The more evenly the water coverage is applied the more evenly green the turf will look.
During an irrigation tune up, the system is first observed under operation and inspected for operational issues that affect the performance of water being applied. Sprinkler problems such as sunken, tilted, clogged, unbalanced water pressure, overspray, and unevenly spaced heads are just a few problematic issues that can be identified.
When these issues remained unfixed, they waste more water and affect lawn and landscape health. Like any other system in your home, it needs periodic service to verify and maintain proper function. When not maintained it can become your home’s most wasteful system of water.
