Your irrigation system is designed to keep your lawn hydrated. This is especially important during the summer months in Iowa when your lawn will have to deal with the heat. To ensure it is always operating as efficiently as possible, you should schedule routine irrigation maintenance throughout the year. After all, you want to make sure your system is optimized to use just enough water to keep your lawn hydrated so you're not wasting water. Irrigation maintenance also includes regular checking of the zones to ensure they're set correctly and continue to provide your lawn with an even water distribution. Another benefit of routine irrigation maintenance is that you will be able to catch any issues with your system and have them repaired before they turn into bigger, more expensive problems.

1. Routine Irrigation Maintenance Will Optimize Your System

No one wants their water bill to be higher than it already is, and routine irrigation maintenance will optimize your system to ensure your water bill doesn't skyrocket due to your irrigation system using more water than is necessary. When your irrigation system is functioning properly, it will use just enough water to keep your lawn hydrated and not an excessive amount. Routine maintenance can prevent abnormally high water bills by keeping your system in tip-top shape.

2. You'll Want to Check the Zones of Your Irrigation System Regularly

The zones of your irrigation system are designed to provide water to specific areas of your lawn. You should schedule routine irrigation maintenance because you'll want to regularly check the zones to ensure your lawn receives proper water distribution. If the zone settings are incorrect, parts of your lawn could end up not receiving the water that it needs, and those parts of your lawn could turn brown. Or, parts of your lawn could be receiving too much water, which is also detrimental to the health of your lawn. By scheduling routine irrigation maintenance, you can ensure your zones are always set correctly so that every part of your lawn is receiving the water that it needs.

3. Routine Irrigation Maintenance Will Catch Small Issues Before They Become Bigger Ones

Most irrigation issues start out as tiny problems, but balloon into larger ones when they are not dealt with. When you schedule routine irrigation maintenance, you'll be able to catch small issues and have them repaired before they become bigger, more expensive issues. Irrigation maintenance consists of checking for:

  • Faulty wiring
  • Debris blocking the sprinklers
  • Wiring valve issues
  • Rotor head issues
  • Blocked or clogged nozzles

Make sure that the company you hire to perform irrigation maintenance is capable of handling any repairs that may be necessary.
