Irrigation is a beneficial system to have in your Adelaide landscape or garden. It’s only natural you have any questions about how it works before installing it in your garden.
We’ve got a lot of questions about how irrigation works or just general questions about irrigation.
Here, we’ll be answering some of the frequently asked questions we’ve gotten about irrigation!
Can I install an irrigation system myself?
No, you should never attempt to install an irrigation system yourself—it’s a complex system that requires professional intervention and should never be attempted by amateurs.
You could damage your plumbing if you make the wrong move, not to speak of the type of substandard irrigation system you might buy.
You could also damage the landscape of your home, which is the whole point of getting an irrigation system. In the long run, you’ll spend more money fixing your mistakes than you’d have spent on hiring someone who will install the irrigation system.
Are there different irrigation systems?
Yes, there is a wide range of irrigation systems from which you can choose. The type of irrigation system people tends to get depends on their budget, preference, and landscape.
Some of the different irrigation systems we have are the sprinkler, drip, etc., irrigation. Most irrigation systems consist of a controller, valves that restrict or open water flow, and sprinklers or outlets that distribute them.
These three components can be found in all irrigation systems, just that the method and application differ. If you need help deciding what irrigation system to choose, let guaranteed services help you.
We’ll assess your property and determine which fits your needs and environment best.
Is it true that a sprinkler system uses a lot of water?
No, it doesn’t. It is one of the irrigation systems that save up the most water. They only distribute the necessary amount of water your landscape needs at a particular time. There really won’t be an opportunity for your water to waste.
And if you ever feel like it’s using more water than necessary, you can always tweak the settings to suit your preference.
Will my irrigation system work even when I’m not at home?
Yes. The reason irrigation systems are so popular in Adelaide is that they work regardless of your availability. Your landscape will keep on getting the necessary water even if you’re on vacation or at work.
Your garden will become self-sufficient in a sense.
Is an irrigation system challenging to use?
No, an irrigation system is not hard to use. Controllers come with installing an irrigation system, so that’s where you’ll be controlling from. The controllers are usually self-explanatory, so you shouldn’t have any issues.
