Sprinkler Installation is not a do-it-yourself task. Proper sprinkler installation requires professional knowledge and guidance. If you have no experience with sprinkler installation, it is best to get some training to learn how to install your own fire sprinklers. This will help you save money in the long run and protect your family, home and belongings from damage.
Fire Sprinkler Installation is done in many phases: Pre Installation Meeting – Plan the layout of the project. Review existing fire sprinkler systems blueprints. Review any special materials to be utilized. Schedule of tasks and things to be done.
Start by preparing the area to be treated with dirt and sand. Clear an area where there will be no foot traffic and trees and other obstacles need to be removed. If the house has a basement, it is a good idea to dig a hole and pour the foundation concrete and level the soil beneath it. If the yard is not on grade, it is necessary to build a foundation to keep the sprinkler installation above ground.
When considering what components to purchase for your sprinkler installation, make sure that they are the right size for the area to be treated. If the system will be installed underground, it should be large enough and equipped with the right valves for the intended use. The system can either be vented or non-vented. Those which are vented to allow the pressurized air to go up and out while those which are non-vented discharge the mixture directly into the ground.
When purchasing sprinkler components, it is wise to contact us first. We can offer the best price on these items because we are an authorized vendor for the manufacturer. Sometimes, authorized vendors cannot offer the item at a discount price because of certain restrictions in the contract. By contacting us, you will know that your irrigation systems are being purchased for the right purposes and will fit the specifications necessary for the job. Our team of highly trained and experienced professionals can assist you in every step of the process, from the initial design to the delivery of the components and final testing.
After the initial design, testing, and installation, your irrigation system should last for many years. The lawn sprinkler installation process can begin by merely adding the components. The most common mistake that most homeowners make is not testing the system thoroughly prior to installation. Testing it for leaks and cracks is very important.
Some homeowners may not realize how much the new sprinkler system cost because they did not add the pipes to their existing system. Pipes and lines are very costly. If you calculate the total cost of all parts including the labor and material, you may find that it is double or triple what you originally estimated. Add to that the cost of installing new tires on your tires, hoses, and so on, and you can see that the actual new sprinkler system installation cost may be greater than the price of the replacement parts.
Many homeowners are shocked to discover that the majority of the problems that occur in their yard are actually the result of not installing the system properly. For example, broken pipes can happen after just one or two visits to the local plumbing professional. Other issues, such as clogged drains, may only show up after numerous visits. These are just a few examples of the mistakes that most homeowners make during the lawn sprinkler installation process. With so many details to take in and correct, hiring a professional landscape contractor can help ease the frustration of installing an irrigation system and increase the life of your landscape.
