Pump Testing and Repair
We can go ahead and say that every single irrigation system that is built is essentially unique. Even if you had two identical systems that had the same amount of sprinkler heads and covered the same amount of space with the pipe system and things like that the way that we supply water to the system may vary. That is something that we always have to account for. Am I getting enough water pressure, or do I need some more? If you are going to need some more than you are going to have to go with a pump!
Finding The Right Pump
We know that for the most part, we take care of repairs, so it is kind of weird that we are going to say this, but most of the times the best repair jobs are done before repair jobs are even necessary. We really believe that to be true in sprinklers especially when it comes to pumps. If you are going to need to pump to get more water pressure you should really make a point to know that ahead of time or as you are installing your sprinkler system. In any case, though, the most important thing that you need to do is make sure that you can get the right capacity pump installed!
Testing 1 2 3
At times to actually find which type of pump could be best for you irrigation system what we can do is bring a couple of pumps, attach them to the system from the outside and actually see them go to work. Again being able to see the results ahead of time, before we actually dig in and place the pump in permanently can really help people chose the right type of pump for their irrigation system! It is really that simple.
A Long Term Solution?
As we mentioned maybe not all sprinkler systems are going to need a pump to be able to work properly. For the most part, though these are sprinkler systems that are relatively small. They only cover a very small yard or an area like that. So, installing a pump is definitely a permanent thing. That being said usually these pumps are going to be placed in some pretty difficult working conditions. The pumps are built to be able to handle these conditions for a long time. Giving them a check up and even a tune-up every now and then though, will definitely not hurt their longevity!
Once the pump has been installed as we just mentioned it could be a great idea to give it some maintenance over the years. This can be part of our regular routine when we go around giving maintenance to your entire sprinkler system. There are other systems that are going to use pumps only as a backup plan when for whatever reason there is just not enough water pressure in the system. In these cases, the pumps may actually have a more difficult time getting going then when they are used regularly. We just thought that you should keep that in mind!
