How We Organize Our Sprinkler System Start-Ups

Unfortunately, as in our sprinkler blowouts, we cannot schedule appointments because of the large number of systems we have to turn on. We turn on only a small fraction of sprinkler systems than we blow out, but the time on each property can run about the same as blowouts since we more often than not are checking zone and head function as well.

Some sprinkler system start-ups can take much longer than others depending on many factors including inability to find valve boxes or the main shut-off, inaccessible yards, etc. That being the case, making appointments we may not be able to keep is unacceptable to us, and a pain in the neck to our customers. Therefore, the best we can do is post on our blog very early in the morning what zip code we will be in that particular day, and if you have checked for text The link to our blog can be found at the bottom of this page.

If you are not at home at the time of your sprinkler system start-up, we will attempt to complete the start-up in your absence. Please make sure access to all valve boxes is available. If we cannot do your sprinkler system start-up when we arrive because of locked gates, inability to find valve boxes, or concerns about dogs getting loose, you will be notified by email or text if you have checked the box on our form for text notification.

As with our sprinkler blowouts, all customer addresses are sent from our database to our GPS mapping software for better time and route management.

Sprinkler System Start-Up & Repairs

We Do Sprinkler Start-Ups, Adjustments, and Repairs

We start our sprinkler start-up services and repairs in the middle of March for those who have city water sprinkler systems. We encourage customers on city water sprinkler systems to contact us as early as possible to get their water turned on and get their sprinkler systems repaired if needed. It is better to have your system ready for the season before it is needed than after the season has started and there is a possible backlog. This is especially important if there are major repairs needed such as broken lines, backflow preventers that need replaced, etc.

Our sprinkler system start-ups can be as minimal as preparing your backflow for the season and turning on the water and checking for leaks, or a full service which includes head adjustments, and setting the timer for spring operation. We can also repair or replace sprinkler heads, find leaks and repair broken lines, repair or replace the electronic valves, add hose bibs to your sprinkler system, repair main water valves and backflow preventers.

Please use the form below to sign up for a sprinkler system start-up only. If you are looking for a sprinkler blowout, please use this form.

Spring can be hectic due to the amount of requests we receive, so if you call us, be prepared to leave us a message with your phone number so we can return your call. You may also text us, but the form below needs to be filled out for us to turn on your sprinkler system so we do not lose you in our list.

 Sprinkler system start-ups tend to go much faster than sprinkler blowouts, and we only get a fraction of start-ups compared to sprinkler blowouts, but even then we can run into system issues which could slow down our daily progress.

 Make sure to check our blog every morning to know what area we are going to be in for the day. We will also send text notifications the night before for those who sign up for them. Email updates may be sent periodically during the start-up season. The link to our blog can be found in the navigation menu at the top of this page. Sprinkler system start-up pricing is located on the form below.
