You’ve made it through the cold months with a winterized sprinkler system, but what do you do now as the weather warms up for Spring? JB Irrigation offers a complete Spring system check to ensure that your irrigation system is ready for service and that you are watering efficiently and not spending too much on your water bill.
JB Irrigation provides a Winterization service that involves insulating and/or draining; the exposed irrigation system piping and components. They use professional, proven insulating products. The Winterization service also includes a system check, adjustments and general maintenance to your sprinkler system.
In the Houston, Texas area we have to worry only about exposed irrigation system piping and components. The underground piping is usually not affected by our kind of freezing weather because the soil acts as an insulator. The temperature of the soil your irrigation system is buried in typically stays above freezing. It is however VERY important to protect exposed pipes and sprinkler system components from freeze. System protection can be achieved by insulating a sprinkler system, draining a sprinkler system, checking o-rings and seals, and more.
A water-smart irrigation system in a landscape functions much like the systems in a human body. That’s a useful analogy you can share to educate your clients about the value of smart irrigation. Let’s compare the following water-smart products to different organs, functions, and systems in our physical selves.
Think of the smart controller as the brain, overseeing all operations necessary for the system to function. By collecting data from sensors, or current weather data in your area, the smart controller will automatically adjust watering schedules to match the weather and the changing of the seasons. Explore smart controller options for your irrigation system, in particular WaterSense labeled smart controllers.
Sensors are like the eyes and ears, delivering information to the brain. Rain sensors detect rainfall to avoid overwatering. Sensors shut off an irrigation system during rain events, when the ground is already moist, or even when freezing temps arrive. Adding a rain sensor or temperature sensor will bring additional water savings, and the specific needs of your site will determine which sensors are best.

Just as high blood pressure can be bad for your body, so can excessive water pressure be unhealthy for an irrigation system. Maintain healthy circulation with water-smart heads and nozzles. These products create larger water drops or streams, which are more resistant to wind and will soak into the soil more easily. Water-efficient sprinklers and nozzles can reduce water use by 30 percent compared to traditional spray nozzles. Contact JB Irrigation for water smart heads and nozzles for your irrigation system.
It has now been a decade since JB Irrigation has been promoting the efficient use of irrigation through the “Smart Irrigation Month” campaign.

When Houston’s temperature drops below freezing, irrigation systems across the city are prone to malfunction. ABC 13 News contacted Houston’s foremost expert on sprinkler system repair, JB Irrigation, to discuss this topic on the evening news.
Houston weather has taken a chilly turn over the last week or so. Our usual warm and humid environment disappeared and temperatures fell into the 20’s as the weathermen across the country spoke of “polar vortexes” and ice storms throughout the nation.
