Irrigation Startup in Ankeny, Johnston, Urbandale, IA & Surrounding Areas

Bring your irrigation system back online so it's ready to keep your plants hydrated.

The goal of our irrigation startup service is to get your irrigation system back up and running after the winter season so that your grass and other plants can receive adequate hydration throughout the hottest months of the year. We perform our irrigation startups as soon as the weather warms up to make sure your irrigation system is up to the task. We'll check all the components, including your backflow valve, to ensure they are working properly. If we find any faulty or leaking components, we can either repair them during our visit or schedule a time to return and complete the repair. Our irrigation startup service is offered in April and May after the threat of freezing has passed. We proudly offer our services in Ankeny, Johnston, Urbandale, and surrounding areas in Iowa. Give us a call at (515) 654-5447 to schedule our irrigation startup service for your property.

What's included in our irrigation startup service?

Backflow being checked during startup service in Johnston, IA.

You can trust our team to be diligent when starting your irrigation system back up after it's had quite a bit of downtime over the winter season. During our irrigation startup service, we check all the components of your system, including the backflow valve. We'll make sure this important safeguard is working properly so no contaminated water can enter your home's water supply. We'll slowly turn on the water to your irrigation and let it build up pressure so we don't damage your lines with a high-pressure spike. As pressure builds, we'll check for any leaks in any of the lines. Once pressure equalizes, we'll turn on each zone to check the operation of the controller and each valve. The final step is to program your controller so it directs the right amount of water to the plants throughout your property.

We can do small repairs during our irrigation startup visit or schedule another time to complete the repair.

As we are doing our irrigation startup procedure, we can address any small issues that may arise. We'll check the operation of each sprinkler head and adjust any as necessary so the proper amount of water goes where it is needed. If we find any components in need of repair, we can either address them during our visit or, if we don't have the time or resources available, we can schedule a time to come back to complete the repair. Some common repairs we perform include:

  • Adjusting sprinkler heads
  • Replacing a faulty controller
  • Replacing water valves
  • Repairing cracked lines
  • And more!
