As irrigation systems go, there are three main types that are suitable for lawns. Impact sprinklers, rotating sprinklers, and underground sprinklers are the most common types. Taking into account both the amount of water your lawn needs, and its square footage, the Oklahoma City Sprinkler System Company will make use of a combination of the three types. To make up a lawn-watering ‘zone’ it is often recommended to use a variety of sprinkler heads.
Sprinklers buried underground are a widespread choice for homeowners. They pop up when the sprinklers are turned on. To avoid issues when the lawn is mowed, they lower back down to ground level when the system is turned off. After appraising your particular lawn care needs, an Oklahoma City Sprinkler System Company technician will be able to judge whether underground sprinklers should be part of the system.
Basic common elements exist, even though the system that the Oklahoma City Sprinkler System Company designs for your lawn will be customized to its special needs. Sprinkler systems always have a distribution mechanism or sprinkler heads. They also have a valve mechanism that maintains even pressure to the pipes. And finally, they are also equipped with a timer that will turn the sprinklers on and off. The Oklahoma City Sprinkler System Company will examine such factors as water pressure, the source of water, the kind of soil, and the plants, trees, shrubs on the site. You may find that you would like to add to your system at some point. If you’ve made provisions in the original specifications for later changes, you will find it is not as costly as it otherwise could be.
