Automatic Rain offers a variety of preventative maintenance programs which can be tailored specifically for your system. The minimum preventative maintenance we recommend is threefold.
During this service, our trained technicians turn your system on and thoroughly check every major component of your irrigation system. Each sprinkler head is checked for proper performance (no leaks, proper height, etc…). Any adjustments are made at this time to ensure your lawn and landscape is efficiently and effectively watered. If required, we replace the battery in your controller and set an efficient watering program.
To protect your investment during our harsh winter months, it is absolutely critical that your system be winterized. During this service, our trained technicians turn off the water supply to your irrigation system and purge your system removing all water left in your pipes. This helps protect your heads, valves and piping from serious damage due to freezing. Like all other services, we stand behind our work. As long as your water (to the irrigation system) remains off until Spring Activation, we guarantee your system from any freeze damage provided Automatice Rain, Inc. does the Spring start-up also.
Annual Backflow Test
During this service, one of our certified backflow testers tests your device to ensure it meets the performance requirements as mandated by the Missouri Department of Natural Resources and local municipal ordinances and codes. While this test is normally conducted with the Spring Activation, we can test devices anytime throughout the year.
