Importance of Lawn Irrigation

The health of your lawn has a significant impact on the appearance of your home’s exterior. Installing an irrigation system is a great way to make your property look great while also saving money and time by reducing water waste. It’s also practical because it eliminates the need to spend time each week manually watering your grass. No more sweating in the hot sun during the summer, and no more worrying if the grass got enough water.

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.

Sprinkler System Design

It’s difficult to keep a balanced delivery of water to your lawn throughout the hot and dry summer season. That’s why you need an automated underground sprinkler system. You can set the days and times you would like your thirsty grass to get the water it needs and literally forget it. When it’s time to water, the sprinklers come out of the ground and spray water to the much-needed areas. When installed properly, the water goes on the lawn and not on the street thus conserving water and not annoying people walking by your yard.

Sprinkler Replacement Services

An irrigation system is essential for maintaining a beautiful, healthy lawn. However, if any component of your sprinkler system is not working properly, it could result in serious problems ranging from flooding to underwatering. This could destroy your landscape! But how can you determine whether a sprinkler system repair or replacement is required?

A sprinkler system includes the following components:
  • Timer controller system
  • Pipes and tubing valves
  • Sprinkler head
  • Backflow preventers
If any of these components are destroyed or damaged, the entire system could fail. If your water bill spikes significantly, it could be because of efficiency problems with your system. The sudden spike in water usage is a red flag that something is broken with your system. If your sprinklers require frequent repairs beyond annual maintenance or component replacements, it could be time to replace them. Uneven coverage of your lawn might indicate you need to replace your sprinkler system. If you see that some areas are dry while others are watered, you should think about replacing your system.

Get in touch with us and we will help you choose the best sprinkler system for your needs.

Sprinkler System Repair

A defective sprinkler system will cause a significant amount of damage to your property and create additional costs. Your landscape can be damaged by a sprinkler that won’t turn off, and your plants can be overwatered, resulting in higher water bills and possibly damage. If you need sprinkler repairs, you can rely on our team of experts. Whether it’s a leak, a broken sprinkler head, a controller issue, a dry patch, or even an electrical problem, our experts are prepared to identify the issue and take care of it quickly.

Sprinkler System Maintenance

A properly functioning irrigation system is essential for maintaining a healthy lawn and landscaping. In some situations, faulty sprinklers can create brown spots. A system that is improperly pressured can waste water and money, among other things. You might lose up to 25,000 Gallons of water with just one malfunctioning sprinkler head. And you’ll pay a huge price for it! Our maintenance process will give you peace of mind knowing that your sprinkler system is functioning properly. Contact us today!

Drip Systems

Flowerbeds and gardens require constant love and attention and drip irrigation systems allow you to water all of your flowers at once in a timely and efficient manner. Drip systems can be set on an automatic timer so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to water your plants.

Drip systems are also great for fruit trees and bushes like raspberries and blackberries. Regardless of your property and irrigation needs, we are confident that drip irrigation will help you manage your water consumption.

Underground Sprinkler Systems

Underground sprinkler systems carry water around your yard to all of the places it’s needed. Usually, pop-up sprinkler heads are used. These sprinkler heads will rise out of the ground when it’s time to water and disappear when they’re finished. This way your yard can be free and clear of any tripping hazards and ready for you and your family to enjoy.

If you have a very large area to water and aren’t worried about sprinklers showing even when they aren’t being used, you can opt for a turret-style sprinkler that will shoot water very far and up to a 360-degree radius. If you’re curious about your options for underground sprinklers, call and talk to Mr. Chipp today.

Boise Sprinkler System Installation

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.

If you are interested in performing a sprinkler system installation in your home, we have provided a rough guide below that you can use as a reference to installing your own sprinkler system.
It is important to remember that this is only a guide, and we cannot take responsibility for any damages to the property that arise from a DIY project. It is also important to remember that this guide can be used for most residential properties using Irrigation or City water here in the Boise area, but there can be exceptions.
  1. Prior to any digging, ensure to call 811 or submit a request online. You can visit their website here. call811.com
  2. 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
  3. 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:
    1. 10 GPM
    2. 50 PSI
    A good rule of thumb is to be conservative and calculate your GPMs at 75 % of your GPM measurement max capacity. This means that if you got 10 GPM from your test, then you have 7.5 GPM to work with.
  4. 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.
  1. 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:
  1. Turn off the water going to your house by closing the valve on your water meter.
  2. 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.
  3. 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:
    1. Polyethylene pipe
    2. Brass pipe
    3. Other
  1. You have now tapped into your main water supply and installed your backflow preventer along with your main sprinkler line.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  1. 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.
  1. 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.
  2. Connect your sprinkler wire to your solenoids. A quick video on how to do this can be viewed by clicking here.
  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Connect the other end of your funny pipe to your sprinkler heads and cover the trench you made.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
We hope this guide has served as a starting point in your attempt to install your brand-new sprinkler system. It is a lot of work, but it is rewarding, with the main benefit being that you will have saved thousands of dollars. If after reading this guide you decide that you would rather, we install the new sprinkler system for you, don’t hesitate to give us a call. We would be more than happy to help you out with your sprinkler project and commit to doing a quality job. In addition to this, have the peace of mind in knowing that we warranty our work on all our new sprinkler systems.
