What can go Wrong with Your Sprinkler System

Irrigation systems are notoriously finicky and difficult to manage. From homeowner lawns to giant commercial irrigation systems, any number of things can happen that will derail the operation and necessitate irrigation system repair.

Potential Problems

  • Popup spray heads cease to pop up
  • Rotary spray heads cease to rotate
  • Nozzles and small tubing clogs with dirt or other debris
  • Spray heads are run over with the lawnmower or kicked
  • A power failure re-sets the system incorrectly
  • A contractor cuts through a pipe
  • Spray heads spring leaks
  • Tubing becomes kinked
  • Valves leak
  • Filter screens become clogged

  • Irrigation InstallationGrowing and maintaining a beautiful lawn in Jacksonville requires a well-tuned irrigation or sprinkler system. Without one, you will spend hours each week dragging a hose around the yard. If you have a sprinkler system, but it is old or in need of repair, you will waste water and money, and still have a dried up or patchy yard. To maintain a pretty green lawn, you need a good irrigation system, in working order, and a top-notch maintenance company to call when trouble hits.
  • Rain Sensor Port and Sensor Switch

  • Decrease watering schedule during cool months and increase it during hot months without having to reprogram.
  • 365 Day Calendar

    Water on specific days of the week, odd or even days, or day interval, with day exclusion to meet water restrictions.

  • Battery back-up stores programming. (9-Volt battery needed)
  • Wired Rain Sensor

    Conserves water by interrupting sprinklers during rain. Adjustable from 1/8″ to 1″ of rainfall.

  • Wireless Rain Sensor

    Conserves water by interrupting sprinklers during rain. Adjustable from 1/8″ to 1″ of rainfall. No wire required to communicate between the sensor and the controller, up to 300′ range.

    allow mixing different radius nozzles without over/under watering. Color-coded by radius.

  • WATER WELL FLOW TEST PROCEDURE

    General

    This procedure will allow you to test the actual flow rate from an existing water well and pump system. It will be specific

    for the water well and pump that are in place. It will not tell you if the water well is capable of supplying more water than

    the pump in place is able to deliver.

    Purpose

    To determine the maximum, consistent flow rate a well/pump system can deliver at a given pressure over an extended

    period of time.

    Equipment Required

    You will need the following equipment at hand and/or installed on the water well piping in order to do this test.

    1. A pressure gauge registering in PSI (pounds per square inch) installed on the well discharge

    piping.

    2. At least one valve on the well discharge piping for varying the flow rate. This can be a gate valve

    or water faucet(s). It is more convenient, but not necessary, if they are located near the well.

    3. A container of known volume (5 gallon bucket, 30 gallon garbage can, etc.) for capturing the

    flow.

    4. Hose and/or piping to divert flow from valve on the discharge piping into the container.

    5. A stop-watch or watch with second hand for timing the flow.

    Running The Test

    To complete the test do the following:

    1. Turn the well on and allow it to run for at least thirty (30) minutes. (This will cause the water level in the

    well to drop to a level it will normally have during sustained, continuous pumping.) As it runs, adjust the

    valve(s) to maintain the highest desired pressure you need for your irrigation system design. For most

    lawn sprinkler or orchard irrigation systems this should be 50 PSI. If you have a well with a pressure

    switch, the test

    to 60 PSI.

    and off.

    must be performed within the pressure settings of the switch. Usually 30 to 50 PSI or 40The pump must run continuously throughout the test and cannot be allowed to turn on

    2. At the end of thirty minutes, be sure the pressure has stabilized at the desired test pressure by adjusting

    the valve(s). Then divert the flow, using the hose or piping, into the container. Time the exact time in

    seconds it takes to fill the container. Repeat this filling/timing process two more times to be sure the

    results are the same.

    3. Calculate the flow rate for the above test by dividing the container volume by the filling time in minutes.

    For example, a sample test filled a 5 gallon container in 30 seconds. Thirty seconds divided by sixty

    seconds in a minute equals ½ minute. Five gallons divided by ½ minute equals a flow rate of 10 gallons

    per minute.

    4. You have determined the flow rate

    PSI pressure). Now repeat steps two and three at two lower pressures in 5 PSI increments. The flow

    rates for each should be progressively higher than the initial test.

    You now have the required flow rate and pressure information required to design your irrigation system.

    at the desired test pressure. (For example, 10 gallons per minute at 50

    PLANNING GUIDELINES

    The table below can be used in initial planning for determining the water supply requirements of

    irrigation systems. It is intended for use as a planning guide and does not replace the need for site

    specific irrigation system design.

    Average water requirements by crop are as follows:

    Row Crops ( cotton, corn etc.) 1” every 5 days

    Hay Crops ( Coastal Bermuda grass etc.) 1” every 5 to 7 days

    Turf Grass (Bermuda grass etc.) 1” every 7 to 10 days

    Calculations are for a net application of 1.00” into the soil assuming a 20% loss due to evaporation (Gross application of

    1.25”). This is a generally accepted loss for average conditions using impact sprinklers. For highly efficient methods such as

    center pivots with sprinklers on drops and drip irrigation systems, the acreages can be increased by approximately 10%. For

    less efficient methods such as gun type sprinklers under dry and windy conditions, the acreages can be reduced by

    approximately 10%
