Looking To Save Money On A Brand New Sprinkler System?
Importance of Lawn Irrigation
Watering your grass has never been easier or more efficient than with an in-ground sprinkler system. Sprinklers can be programmed to water the grass on a regular basis, eliminating the need to drag out the sprinkler every few days. A properly designed sprinkler system offers complete coverage, guaranteeing that no grassy areas are either under or over-watered to the point of drowning. In addition to making it easier to maintain a lush, green lawn, automatic sprinklers will save you money by preventing water waste.
Whether you have a large property or a smaller garden, an irrigation system will benefit it. Your new sprinklers will ensure that your lawn, trees, shrubs, and flowers, are strong and healthy throughout the year.

A DIY Guide
Purchasing a new sprinkler system is a big investment that not everyone is ready to make. Sprinkler installation companies must charge premium prices in order to stay afloat in the industry and profit as a business. Installing a sprinkler system as a homeowner will always be the lower-cost option.
- Prior to any digging, ensure to call 811 or submit a request online. You can visit their website here. call811.com
- Once 811 has come out and marked the lines in your home, the next step is to test out your water supply and get GPM (Gallons per minute) and PSI (Pounds per square inch) measurements. A good tool to dynamically test out your system has been linked here. Toro Flow and Pressure Gauge Kit
- How many heads and zones will you need for your brand-new sprinkler system? That will depend on the measurements you get from step 2. For simplicity, use the following measurements and let’s assume these are the values you got:
- 10 GPM
- 50 PSI
- Visit a local Boise sprinkler supplier store like Pipeco and provide them with these figures. They will be able to tell you how many heads you can put on one zone, depending on the type of sprinkler nozzle you select for your yard. Make sure you have also measured the square and linear footage of your yard so that they can help you determine all the materials you will need for your project. They will also help you design your sprinkler system, provided you have the dimensions of where your new sprinkler system will go.
- If you are connecting your new sprinkler system to Irrigation water, then you can just turn off your irrigation valve, and then tap into it to connect your new sprinkler system. If you are connecting to City water, then you will need to find your water meter. Once you locate it, do the following:
- Turn off the water going to your house by closing the valve on your water meter.
- Dig a 3–5-foot hole until you find the line going into your home. Be very careful to cut the line going to your house and not the line going to your meter.
- You will now need to cut the line so you can insert a tee and tap into your water supply. In our experience, the type of pipe that you will most likely run into will be:
- Polyethylene pipe
- Brass pipe
- You have now tapped into your main water supply and installed your backflow preventer along with your main sprinkler line.
- Now that you have your sprinkler system design, and know where you will be running your lines, place a flag everywhere a sprinkler head will be installed.
- Trench your lines roughly 7-9 inches deep. If you don’t have a trencher, locations such as Tates Rents or Pro Rentals in Boise can provide you with one.
- You will need to decide where your manifold and valve box will be located. Once you decide this, you will run your main sprinkler line and connect it to your sprinkler manifold. A picture of what your valve box and manifold would look like is shown below.
- Ensure that you also run your sprinkler controller wire cable in this trench. Ultimately, you will decide where your sprinkler controller will go. The main thing to keep in mind is that you want to put it in a location where you have access to an electrical outlet. If you don’t have access to an electrical outlet, you can purchase a battery-powered controller as an alternative.
- Connect your sprinkler wire to your solenoids. A quick video on how to do this can be viewed by clicking here.
- After trenching your lines and connecting your main line to your manifold, connect your pipe to the valves from your valve box. We like to use poly pipes because of their flexibility but you can also use PVC pipes. The 1-inch pipe is more than enough for a residential sprinkler system. There are exceptions to this rule, and it is something that you can discuss with your sprinkler supplier if any additional questions arise.
- Once you have laid all your pipe, the next step is to connect your flex pipe to your 1-inch line. We have provided a link that shows the process of what this looks like. Watch The Video Here.
- Connect the other end of your funny pipe to your sprinkler heads and cover the trench you made.
- Finally, install all your sprinkler nozzles on your sprinkler heads. Ensure that the soil around your sprinkler heads is compacted so that they don’t move after the water turns on.
- Program your sprinkler controller. Instructions on this will vary and we recommend that you refer to the controllers’ user manual for step-by-step instructions on how to program it.
