Every spring when we awaken our Cape Cod Irrigation Systems from their winter slumber we check and adjust every head, inspect and test the backflow preventer to ensure that it is protecting you and your family from non-potable water, adjust the clock and check the valves to ensure that they are not leaking.
Manifolds and Valves - Check every Spring
You've installed your irrigation system. The grounds have never looked healthier and then disaster strikes. Your system is malfunctioning and is need of repair. Look no further than Intelligent Irrigation to handle your repair needs. We provide all types of sprinkler system repair. Heads, Valves, Timers, Sprinklers, and Drip. Our technicians service every brand of sprinkler and drip irrigation.
Your valves are found in the valve boxes located on the property. One of the most often overlooked maintenance item is the valves. Valves can leak and if your technician is not checking the valve box every spring and cleaning it out so it can be visually inspected, then you may be throwing dollars away as water, unseen, slowly seeps into the ground.
Irrigation Heads - Bi-Monthly System Checks
Lawn sprinkler repair and preventative maintenance are a requirement for a healthy, green, and beautiful lawn on Cape Cod. Annual tune-ups ensure proper and adequate water coverage. Bi-Monthly system checks ensure even precipitation and discover cost saving repairs. Our technicians use water conserving nozzles and applicators so the water is used efficiently. A broken sprinkler wastes more water than any other part of your system. Sprinkler head repair consists of installing the proper head, changing the nozzles regularly, and maintaining the proper height of the head.
One of the questions we ask upon taking on the servicing of a new system is one about your water bill. Often times we hear that the bill is increasing yearly and then upon inspection of the system, while it is running, we find that multiple heads are in need of replacement or leaks are present indicating that your previous company has not been doing their job. Maybe its time you called someone Intelligent.
Missing Heads/ Broken Pipes - Bi-Monthly System Checks
Bubbling water or a wet area is usually an indication of a broken sprinkler pipe. Proper sprinkler pipe repair is our specialty. We use only the best quality pipe and fittings as well as the highest standard in primer and glue. Abrasive pipe preparation is mandatory on all PVC repairs. We don't just turn on the system and watch it perform from afar, we walk every line, checking every head and by doing so, often find problems that others do not. You are paying for an hour of work, you deserve every minute of that being dedicated to locating problems.

Proper Placement of Technology
Often times we find the wrong head used in the wrong place. Other problems are improper placement of rain sensors. Outdoor showers are not an ideal location for a rain sensor as the steam and moisture from an outdoor shower can actually trigger the rain sensor to function thereby preventing your irrigation system from schedule watering. Rain sensors in the shade, where the heat and direct sunlight do not dry them out are also to blame for the poor performance of many irrigation systems. Sometimes it helps to take an intelligent look at every component of the system to ensure its proper placement, performance and that it is functioning as intended.
