Upcoming cold temps, please cover your backflow if your system hasn’t been winterized!

As the cold temperatures approach, it may be wise to cover your backflow preventer. If the temperature is forecasted to drop below 40 degrees, we recommend covering the device if the system hasn't already been winterized. This can be done simply by wrapping the device with an old blanket or sheet and then covering it with a trash can, trash bag or similar item. The backflow preventer is typically located near the side of the home like the one shown in the picture below. Please let us know if you … [Read more...]

Citizens Water Customers Please Read!!

We were just notified by mail from Citizens Energy Group (formerly Indianapolis Water Company) that they will no longer be taking the results of the mandated backflow test by fax. Their policy has always been for us to fax them the results of the test once we have performed it at your home. However, they have now made it mandatory for us to send the results electronically to them with one caveat, it will cost us $9.95 for EACH report sent to them! Keep in mind, we currently have approximately … [Read more...]

The most susceptible item of an irrigation system to be damaged during freezing conditions is the backflow preventer. In our area, the most common backflow preventer is the Pressure Vacuum Breaker, or PVB. However, you will also see a few Reduced Pressure Principle Assembly's, or RPZ's. In either case, the device should be covered to prevent damage in the event of freezing temperatures before we have been out to perform the winterization service. If temperatures are forecasted to drop below 40 … [Read more...]

Monitor your Spring time watering

DB 3-19-08: new solar sync overlay updated

Once our service technicians have been to your property to activate your system, they will normally leave the controller in the “run” position unless told otherwise. However, the temperature and weather conditions can vary widely in the Spring and you typically may not need to water this early. Feel free at any time to monitor your controller and just put it in the “Off” position until you need to run it. You can also give us a call and ask us about the Solar Sync option which will make … [Read more...]

Look for your start-up date reminder card!

As most of you already know, a green reminder card has been sent out with your “start up date” on it. This is the first time we have used this system and it seems to be working well. Please note that you will also be receiving a reminder call prior to the scheduled date by the service technician. That normally is done the day before. Please keep us up to date with any phone number changes as we will use whatever number we have in the system. See you soon! … [Read more...]
