Central MN Irrigation provides maintenance and repair services for irrigation systems of all makes. There is no problem we cannot fix!
Professional Design & Installation:
When we install an irrigation system for you, you can be sure it is the right system to fit your needs. We design a custom system based on the individual needs of the client rather than a "one system fits all" mentality. We also provide you with a map at the end of every irrigation install, that way you can see the layout of the entire system.
This service includes a complete inspection of all system functions, programming the controller, and adjusting all sprinkler heads as needed. We do ask that the customer be home for the spring start up. We will need the customer to turn on the water to the system (usually in the basement). If you cannot be home, you can visit our How To's page and download instructions to close up the vacuum breaker for your spring start-up. We only then need access to the irrigation controller.
Fall Blow-outs (Winterizations):
Winterizing your irrigation system is extremely important! This will prevent freeze damage to important irrigation components. We use the proper equipment to ensure your system is properly shut down. If we have done your blowout in the past, we personally contact you in September to verify that you want us to perform this service for you again. If you are a new customer, please just call or email to get on the schedule!
You do not need to be home at the time of the fall blow-out. Follow the steps below to insure your system is ready to be winterized. We will take care of everything from outside your residence.
Close the main shutoff valve to the sprinkler system in the basement. Usually located in your utility room close to your water meter.
Open drain valve located above the main shutoff valve and drain water into a bucket.
Some shutoff valves do not have a drain valve on them. If you do not have a drain valve on your shut off, don’t worry as we can get most of the water out of the line entering the home.
Close the drain valve after the water has been drained from the line.
Turn your irrigation controller to system off.
A technician will show up and complete your fall blow-out. We will leave a service tag on the door verifying that we have completed the service.
