With the current economy, it is clear to see why all the big DIY box stores are doing so well. The DIY market has grown by margins not seen for quite some time. The most common problem with this type of venue is the lack of knowledge from the clerks during/after the sale. They will tell you all about the products and benefits of installing an automatic sprinkler system, but what about the designing, installation process, code requirements, etc. drip irrigation system parts
While there are many places to gain the knowledge and support for DIY projects, I have found that the sprinkler/irrigation department is one area that is lacking the support for the DIYer. All kinds of DIY books are available out there but still lack in the support dept. If DIY is something that you are going to tackle, make sure the support comes with the rest of the package.
Designing the system is equally (if not more important) than the installation. It does not matter how good your product is if it is not installed properly. You are going to bury the bulk of the system in the ground, and (trust me) you do not want to have to dig it up due to poor design. You need to have a proper design before you can even consider starting the installation.
Problems and questions will come up, its inevitable. Ensure support after the sale is available. As a professional contractor I have seen many systems installed poorly. I have found they cost just as much to repair them, as to install them properly from the beginning. Unlike other projects, once installed, its impossible to give it the quick fix remedy. drip irrigation system services
Installing a sprinkler system will pay off with great benefits like:
INCREASED VALUE: Your property value will increase 3% or more.
EFFICIENCY: The system only waters landscaped areas, not the street.
TIDY: No unsightly hoses and sprinklers laying on the lawn.
Your lawn will be the envy of the neighborhood, as long as it is done right. It has never been a better time for the DIYer to roll up their sleeves and get dirty, saving huge amounts of their hard earned cash. Just make sure you have what you need to do it right. drip irrigation system installation
