What Does It Cost to Turn On My Sprinkler System?
Most landscape contractors charge between $55 and $85 plus parts, for a residential irrigation system. Usually, the price to turn on the sprinkler system is the same as winterizing. Depending on the size of your system, if it’s small, it will be on the lower range of this price. The upper end of the price range would include a large residential system. Of course, there are other factors besides just how many zones you have. These factors include: how close is your home to other homes that a company will be servicing. If you’re in the neighborhood with a high density of other clients for that particular business, then the price will be reasonable. If your house is out-of-the-way and takes a long road trip to get there, then it could cost more than $85. There could be a trip charge plus the charge for turning on the system.
Our Turn On Procedure
- First action of our technicians is to re-pressurize your sprinkler system.
- We will then inspect the spray heads for any leaks and re-adjust them for proper coverage.
- Next is check your drip system for any leaks. If any emitters are not working, they will be replaced with high quality, pressure compensating emitters that flush out debris. This keeps them flowing every time the water is turned on.
- Finally, the technicians tests electrical system for any issues.
Electrical System Check
We check low voltage components of the electrical system by operating your different irrigation valves using the controller. If there are any issues with the low voltage wiring or solenoids during this period, we will make sure they work before we leave or contact you if more work needs to be performed.
Timing of your service call will save you MONEY!
Timing of your call into a business is another factor in the price you will pay for winterizing. Has your neighborhood already been winterized by that particular company? You could have a higher one time charge, for coming out after the company has been through your neighborhood.
What We Charge
Currently, in 2016 we charge $65 plus parts for systems that are in or near neighborhoods we already service. Many of our systems only need a few dollars of parts to get it operating correctly. Generally, the damage over winter includes drip emitters getting chewed on by squirrels or sprinkler head nozzles that have long lived past their life expectancy. For systems we service that are outside of our immediate area, we charge between $75 and $85. Those areas with a higher rate would include Williams, Sedona, The Verde Valley and Jerome.
