The right sprinkler system for the San Fernando Valley that will save on your water bill
There are several types of sprinkler and irrigation systems to choose from. You want to make your selection based on what will meet the specific needs of your property and the area you live in. For instance, if you live in Southern California, San Fernando Valley in a residential area, you will want an irrigation system totally different from a system used for a golf course in the San Fernando Valley area. We no longer live in the days where you have one set “size fits all” sprinkler system, which is a good thing especially here in the Southern Californian, San Fernando Valley where the temperatures can vary from extremely hot and dry to extremely damp and cold. If you have a residential or commercial property then you will need a sprinkler system that fits the size of your needs, this is one area where the Southern Californian motto of “go big or go home” isn’t necessarily going to pay off.
You want an irrigation system that you can control based on climate needs. It’s economical to have a properly installed sprinkler system and even sprinkler repair is easy, affordable and will save you tons of gallons in water that you don’t want to unnecessarily buy. Talk with Woody about what type of irrigation system you might need, for obvious reasons, if you are a homeowner you won’t need sporting fields, golf course, farm, recreational park or agricultural farming water pressure or huge overhauling systems to handle that type of need.
