Irrigation Start Up

Irrigation start up service is an essential service to ensure that your irrigation system is in proper working order before the start of the growing season.

Winter months can cause damage to the system, leading to leaks, broken or misaligned heads, and controller or valve malfunctions. A proper start-up service also includes a backflow test, which is required by many municipalities to prevent contamination of the water supply.

At Automatic Rain Irrigation, we understand the unique challenges of maintaining a healthy and beautiful lawn in Kentucky’s variable weather.

That’s why our team of certified technicians provides a comprehensive irrigation start up service to ensure that your system is ready to provide your lawn and landscaping with the water it needs for a healthy growing season.

By scheduling an irrigation start-up service with us, you can ensure that your lawn and landscaping will receive adequate water coverage throughout the season, leading to healthy growth and a beautiful landscape.

Spring start-up includes:

Frost Before/After Start up

Frost can be a concern when starting up your irrigation system for the season. While early frosts are not typically an issue, a hard freeze can cause damage to your system. If a hard freeze is predicted, it’s important to take precautions to protect your system. Make sure that your system is set to run a full cycle on that night, even if it’s not scheduled to do so. Running water through your system during the coldest part of the night can help prevent pipes from breaking, ensuring that your system is ready to provide your lawn and landscaping with the water it needs for a healthy growing season.

Do-It-Yourself Spring Start-up

If you prefer to handle your irrigation system start-up yourself, you are welcome to do so. However, it is important to note that you will still need to have a licensed technician perform a backflow test for the water company. Our technicians are certified to perform this test, as are most plumbers. During the start-up process, if you encounter any issues or problems, please don’t hesitate to contact our office at 859.268.4214 for assistance. We are always available to answer any questions you may have and provide guidance to ensure your system is operating efficiently.
