The Design Fee covers the cost of the
time, effort, and ideas involved with
producing a plan in which a bid or estimate
for installation can be produced.
An above ground removable backflow preventer
is installed so that it can be removed
for the winter season. (insulated cover-optional)
Pipes are placed at proper
depth to prevent freezing during winter
Wire is placed in bottom of trench under
pipes to prevent damage to wiring with
a shovel after installation is complete.
At valve, wire is coiled so
as to prevent or lessen solenoid damage
if a power surge or lightning is to occur.
When pipe and wire makes a
90 degree turn a sufficient amount of
wire is coiled so as to prevent damage
to connections as earth movement occurs.
Water proof connecters are used to make
in ground wire connections.
When heads are placed along
side above ground structures such as houses
or buildings, heads are installed one
foot out from such structures.
Spray heads and gear drive
rotors are always on separate zones. Spray
heads and gear drive rotors are installed
with matched precipitation rate nozzles
so as to allow for even water amounts
over given area.
Rain shut-off devices are installed
on all systems.
Systems come with automatic controllers.
Systems are installed using
Rainbird and Hunter components.
When feasible, grass areas
and shrub areas are on separate zones.
Heads are placed so as to have a minimal
amount of overspray on sidewalks and driveways.
