To preserve any sprinkler system, inspection and routine maintenance are requirements. As a homeowner, there are minor things you can do, like walking around looking for issues. Your sprinkler system is crucial because it plays a significant role in keeping your lawn green and looking beautiful. Here are several maintenance tips for your irrigation system for the autumn season.
Inspect Your Surrounding Areas
The fall season is an excellent down period to recognize any potential changes in your surrounding landscape. It would be helpful if you were able to notice any potential issues. Looking for things like holes or bumps in your landscape is helpful.
Use Your Sprinkler System Occasionally
Using your system as frequently as possible in the summertime is essential. Frequent usage of your system is excellent if you live in a climate that doesn’t get much rain during the summer. In the fall, everyday use isn’t required because of cooler temperatures during the fall season.
Remove Those Fallen Leaves
Dead leaves that have fallen from trees can harm your surrounding landscape if left unattended. These leaves create a harmful environment from bacteria like mold and decay. As a result, these elements can damage your lawn leading to unsightly brown spots on the lawn.
Empty Your Sprinkler System
Water can remain in your irrigation system even if you haven’t used it in a few days or weeks. Chances are that there will still be water within your system that needs to be removed. When this water is left unattended in your sprinkler system, it can freeze throughout your sprinklers in the colder months. When this happens, more than likely, there is damage that can occur, which could lead to flooding around your landscape.
