Drip Irrigation

Drip-Irrigation & Microsprays

Drip Systems are a great way to conserve water and promote healthy root growth. Here are some things to consider when installing a new drip system or retrofitting an old spray zone into a drip zone:

  • Drip irrigation is ideal for shrubs, larger plant material & hardy perennials
  • Drip systems operate at relatively slow application rates promoting deeper root systems, minimal run-off and cutting down weed germination
  • Drip irrigation is not ideal for large amounts of annuals, ground covers and certain kinds of perennials
  • Introducing micro-sprays into the drip system is one way to supplement annuals and ground covers with more water

Foundation Driplines

The Texas climate and dry soil conditions can take their toll on a foundation of a home. A foundation drip line is something to consider to help preserve your foundation or minimize future shifting. Here are some insights on the process:

  • Unlike normal drip systems a foundation drip line  will be buried in the ground.
  •  The typical dimensions for burial are 4-6”s below the ground & 4-6”s away Drip Irrigationfrom the foundation
  • We use a special copper coated drip line to prevent root penetration from damaging  the material (copper dulls roots)
  • The drip system will operate as its own automatic sprinkler zone
  • Our technicians will connect directly into your sprinkler mainline, and add a new valve for the foundation drip line
  • If the drip is underground how will you know if the system is working? We’ll connect a “flag indicator” to the drip line as a visual aid – once the zone is turned on and the system is pressurized the flag will pop open.

Other Common Issues

    • Entire zones not turning on
    • Leaks near the water meter
    • Backflow Device is corroded and leaking
    • Backflow Device handles have rusted off
    • Control Box is not turning on or malfunctioning
    • Rain and Freeze sensors are not working
