Improve Results and Reduce Water with the MP Rotator

Posted by on Apr 4, 2016 in Blog | 0 comments

The MP Rotator nozzle by Hunter is a revolutionary enhancement in lawn irrigation; helping homeowners like you achieve healthier landscape growth while reducing water usage by up to 30%.  You can elect MP Rotators when installing a new system, and they can easily be retro-fitted to an existing system. The key is the unique multiple rotating streams that deliver water with a steady, slower application. This allows water to gently seep into the soil with even distribution and prevents pockets of overwatering often found with single spray stream nozzles.  Rather than simply spraying water onto landscapes, the MP Rotator delivers streams of water at a slower rate that soils can absorb, significantly reducing runoff. This high-efficiency nozzle can achieve a radius of up to 35 feet and an arc from 45-360 degrees. Other great features of the MP Rotator include: Double pop nozzle provides superior protection from dirt and debris Adjustable arc and radius Wind-resistant multi-stream technology Low precipitation rate- avoids runoff, saves water and prevents erosion Uniform distribution-  Each stream targets specific areas for higher efficiency and even coverage Contact us today to discuss enhancing the performance and efficiency of your current system by switching to the MP Rotator nozzle.  Looking for a new system installation or renovation?  Contact us for a free estimate and indicate your preference for the MP Rotator.  You’ll be glad you did!...

Proper Irrigation Winterization and Sprinkler Shut Down

Proper Irrigation Winterization and Sprinkler Shut Down

Winterizing your irrigation system when living in the northeast is a must, unless you like playing Russian roulette  (which we doubt you do).   If you don’t have proper winterization service performed, maybe you’ll get through the winter with out any damage to your system.  But chances are you won’t. The cost of having the water removed and your system shut down is a minor investment to protect the lines, heads, valves, manifold and outside plumbing that make up your system. It’s important that you use a qualified, licensed and insured company to service and winterize your system.  If the proper equipment is not used, or the service is not done properly, it could cost you hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars in repair when your system is turned back on in spring.  That “deal” you got in the fall to have your system blown out won’t be such a good deal after all, and the person that did the work is long gone. Here are a few things to look for when having your sprinkler system winterized: Is the compressor being used large enough to blow out all the water in the irrigation lines? Have all outdoor pumps been removed and stored inside? Have all the drain plugs been removed? Have all irrigation controllers been disconnected from the power source? Have all the main shutoff valves to the irrigation system been checked and properly turned off? Be sure to tell your contractor if you have any hose outlets connected to your irrigation system.  They will need to be opened and blown out (things like pool fills, showers, sinks, outside bathrooms etc. could be connected) Following these guidelines will help ensure your sprinkler system, and all connections, are properly shut down for the winter and help prevent any major repairs in the spring due to improper winterizing. To ensure that your irrigation system is properly winterized and shut down, call Creative Irrigation at 631-467-6699.  Limited Time Winterization Special- Only $10 Per Zone! This offer is valid for new customers only, with a minimum of three zones.  For more than six zones, call us for special...
