How Do Sprinkler Irrigation Systems Work?

Sprinkler irrigation is the process of using controlled amounts of water from man-made sources to water your landscape. Other than the irrigation of your crops, irrigation has many other uses not limited to:

  • Keeping livestock cool in warmer temperatures.
  • Frost protection in cooler climates.
  • Quelling weed growth.
  • Dust Suppression.
  • Consolidation of ground soil.

Water Main

Most homes have water delivered to their property through the larger city water main. The water main is the mainline in a water supply system that usually runs underground and delivers fresh, treated water to consumers.

Supply Line

There is a smaller pipe system that connects the water main to your home called the supply line. When a house is built, the water is able to be run from the water main to your home by connecting the supply line straight to your taps.

Water Meter

A water meter is installed between the water main, the supply line and your home so that the meter keeps track of how much water your household is using. Then between the water meter and the house.

Shutoff Valve

The irrigation connection has a ‘system shutoff valve’. If you don’t have an irrigation system installed, the shutoff valve will be switched off at all times. This doesn’t affect the water supply to the plumbing of your home.

Backflow Prevention

What’s called a ‘backflow’ prevention device is installed for all irrigation systems in case of contamination. Contamination might happen if the irrigation water drains back into the main supply line and makes its way through your plumbing.

Sprinkler Valve

When the sprinkler valve receives an electrical current from the irrigation controller being switched on (either automatically or manually), the valve opens so that the water can flow through the sprinkler onto your garden.

4 Different Types of Sprinkler Irrigation Systems

Depending on the size of your yard, the types of plants you want to be watered and the health of your soil, will all come into consideration when choosing a sprinkler irrigation system.

Rotor System

Rotors release water at a slower rate and cover a wider area like a large back or front yard.

Drip System

Drip systems are used in greenhouses, small flower beds and vegetable and herb gardens.

Spray System

Depending on the type of garden area you have this might work well because of the different settings.

Soaker System

The soaker hose is a minimal effort hose that can be connected to your outdoor water tap.

Benefits to Have Sprinkler Irrigation Systems

This depends on you, your availability, and your finances. If like me, you have a busy work and social schedule, you may well benefit from installing a sprinkler irrigation system. You will need to budget for the installation but once installed, the cost efficiency and reduced water waste bring a noticeable change to your utility bill.

  • Reduces water waste.
  • Less responsibility.
  • Less manual labor.
  • Equal water distribution.
  • Suitable for setting up in all types of soil.
  • Used for multiple purposes including keeping livestock cool and repressing frost.
  • Time-efficient.

How Much Does It Cost to Install
And Run a Sprinkler Irrigation System?

Are you looking into purchasing and installing an irrigation system to reduce the cost of watering your lawn? Or decrease water waste and be more efficient with your water consumption? Maybe it’s because you simply don’t have the time, around other commitments, to maintain your lawn. Consider hiring us for all your Tallahassee sod install services.

Approximately Expenses

According to HomeAdvisor, the average cost of having a sprinkler system installed is anywhere between $1710 and $3523. The smaller the system, the smaller the costs and the cheaper end of the scale is approximately $400 and up for a cheaper setup.

You can pick up a soaker hose from Home Depot for $17.93 and this would be the cheapest option. It is of course as mentioned above, not the most efficient option and though minimal, still requires maintenance and labor. But it means you don’t have to dig for the irrigation supply line.

Professional Irrigation Experts

Hiring a professional to install your irrigation system will cost you more, but it also means your system is probably installed right. Not to say that you wouldn’t do a great job of a DIY sprinkler irrigation installment.

DIY’s are less costly, but if you make a mistake, like digging too far and cutting into the water supply line just for an extreme example, it’ll certainly cost you more than initially planned.
