Keeping your landscaping looking its best is a year-round task. Many home and business owners spend hours every week watering their landscaping by hand. This is not only a very time-consuming task but is also horribly inefficient and can lead to very high water bills.
If you are looking for a cost-effective solution to your landscape watering needs, consider drip irrigation systems. Your local plumbing contractor should have the knowledge and experience needed to solve all your watering needs with custom drip irrigation systems.
Drip irrigation systems are one of the most efficient water delivery methods out there. Not only can a drip irrigation system be customized to suit your landscaping design; it also gives you complete control over how much water is delivered, and where. This type of irrigation minimizes evaporation and overspray, so your plants receive as much water as they need without waste—this is the key to keeping your landscaping looking great all year round while keeping your water bills low.
When a plumbing contractor installs your drip irrigation system, it should be installed properly, with the supply lines concealed under a layer of mulch or landscaping fabric. Individual emitters will be spaced out along the supply line, connected by lengths of flexible tubing, in addition to filters designed to keep dirt and debris from clogging the tubes. Your plumbing contractor should also install a backflow preventer to keep water from re-entering your water supply when the system is turned off.
