Irrigation System Spring Openings 2018

Irrigation System Spring Openings 2018

If you have the Alleviator Valve installed in your irrigation system, then there is nothing you need to do ahead of time, prior to the Spring opening of your irrigation system. Our technician can turn the water on from the outside without having to access the valve inside. However; if for any reason you did shut the valve off on the inside, now is the time to turn it back on to avoid any delay in your system being opened.

If you do not have the Alleviator Valve plan to have your inside water turned on by April 13th. We will also call to remind you. Upon doing so, open the valve slowly. You should hear the water turn on but then stop when it gets to the outside plumbing. If you continue to hear water running or see any leaks at the plumbing (either inside or out); turn the water off immediately and call us.

Once out technician has left a door tag indicating that your system has been opened; please note the checked items on the tag.

BE SURE TO RUN YOUR SYSTEM IMMEDIATELY. If you encounter any problems, contact us so we can address issues promptly. After a certain period of time, it will not be determinable as to whether any problem was the resulf ot the Spring Open or “lack of use” after the system was opened.

We thank you for your cooperation. Please feel free to call if you have any questions or concerns, (781)935-9519 or email us at jean@pjpappas.com

Winterizing – Lawn Sprinkler System Closings 2017

Winterizing – Lawn Sprinkler System Closings 2017

Starting October 1st, we will begin winterizing sprinkler systems.  This usually takes around 4 weeks to complete.

If you have the Alleviator Valve, there is nothing you need to do ahead of time.  The technician can turn the water off from the outside via the Alleviator Valve and winterize the sprinkler system.  He will leave a tag when this has been completed.  Please be sure that the sprinkler clock is then turned “OFF” for the winter.  You DO NOT need to unplug the clock.

If you DO NOT have the Alleviator Valve, you will receive a postcard and telephone call reminding you to have the water shut off inside to the sprinkler system by October 1st.  The technician will come during the month of October to winterize the sprinkler system and will leave you a tag when this has been completed.  Please be sure that the sprinkler clock is then turned “OFF” for the winter.  You DO NOT need to unplug the clock.

Any questions, call the office at 781-935-9519.
