Annual irrigation system maintenance helps prevent water loss

A poorly maintained irrigation system prevents water from reaching its intended source and instead a significant amount of precious water can be lost to runoff, evaporation and deep watering below the root zone. Maintaining your irrigation system is one of the most effective ways to reduce wasted water, reduce pollution from run-off and over-irrigation, and improve plant health by applying the correct amount of water where it can be utilized by the plants, trees and turf.
