Irrigation

If you’re in search of a residential irrigation system, chances are you’ve never had one before, and the whole process seems a little, well, daunting, doesn’t it?  It doesn’t have to be.  Walk with us as we give you a step-by-step guide to designing and installing your irrigation system; including critical aspects of the process, and reputable suppliers of irrigation products.  In as little as a month, you’ll enjoy self-gardening, economically sound irrigation; and the beautiful peace of mind that comes with it.

In efforts to help owners decide the best way to complete this set-up; let’s explain the 6 main components of a residential irrigation system, best known as sprinkler irrigation. First, there will be a site inspection to make sure the property is legally and geographically safe to work on.  After that’s given the green light, measurements begin in efforts to create a unique blueprint for your space.  Next, are flow tests and calculations that involve an understanding of physics, to ensure your water flows efficiently and in ways that save you the most money, and the planet the most water.  Once these first three steps are out of the way, it’s time to get to designing the placement of sprinkler heads!  You’ll need to order products for the job that align with your blueprint and flow test calculations.  After products are ordered to your liking, installation follows suit and in less than a month you have a brand-new automated irrigation system for your landscape.

While all this may sound straightforward; it’s important you realize that here at Think Water we’re here to help every step of the way.  Our highly trained technicians and designers are experts at installations, with over 25 years of experience, that will undoubtedly save you time, stress, and money.

One of the most overlooked steps in designing an irrigation system seems to be the design itself. A successful designer can design your system in a way that delivers the maximum amount of water pressure and delivery, in the most ergonomic way possible.  To the avid DIY homeowner, sketching an idea out on paper and then creating a real-life model may seem like a feasible task.  Yet, there are many variations of nozzles needed and available, all of which affect the flow rate of your system. Litres per minute and static PSI are also fundamental here, as they account for water pressure and availability.  Lastly, getting the correct pump size will contribute to overall water pressure, and there are various options for this item as well.  All these pieces come together to deliver maximum efficiency.
