*spring start up  activate system main supply/walk thru zones/ inspect head functions/ drip zone condition/ adjust as needed and set controller for current seasonal needs
**any simple repairs shall be handled with high cost repairs discussed prior to completing
*system recondition check system pressure if found above 70 psi a pressure reducer will be suggeste/ replace all worn heads with pressure compensating drain seal models for best water balance in zone and reduced waste, replace controller with wifi model for zip code weater data input and auto adjustments that work !
*routine service monitoring routine seasonal trips inspecting system for needed aadjustments and repairs focusing on leaks and misadjsutments, costs will vary with contract choice wifi control required for this servie for convenience of service trips to schedule as needed with no coordination
*control upgrade replace controler with wifi model for weather interaction in scheduling  and suspends during rain days with controlability from anywhere
*drip zone recondition mine out old drin tubing not engulfed in roots and replace with new drain check tubing for minimal water loss inbetween cycles
*micro spray garden conversions drip systems have issues where we usually can't tell where is a choke point or leak untill plants stress. traditioanl spray heas get blocked and costly to move. micrso spray systems use spray stakes that can blend in with foliage. moving is simple to accomodate growtrh and sesonal changes
*winterization using an industrial grade compressor to blow air thru pipe network  gives peace of mind to winters freeze concerns

Focusing on Service:
  • * We DO REPAIR ALL BRAND systems
    • of ALL ages of ALL issues
  • * We NO LONGER INSTALL complete irrigation systems
  • * We DO system upgrades & modifications
  •   using water smat/water saving components and state of the art WIFI intercative controllers for the best use of water and minimal waste, saving on costly montly water bills
  • * Seasonal Services include, spring activation/system inspection/ tune ups of outdated systems/monthly monitoring contracts (details apply) /winterizations
  • * Plant Bed Conversion of spray zone to drip zone or
       micro sprays specific for your plant needs
Technical Corner
Spray Heads, also known as mist heads, pop ups, or misters. These models are typically used in small areas ranging from 5-18 feet. Available from 4" to 12" pop up heights, these heads cast a constant spray in the same area with no time to rotate, providing a greater precipitation rate than rotary heads, (less run time 8-12 min.). Common replacement causes, leaking seals, stuck or not popping up, nasty distorted spray pattern, clogged and dribbling, not retracting.  
 Rotary Heads, are used to cover areas of 18-35+ feet. They can cover a large area, and should in most cases, reach to an adjacent head to provide cross coverage. This minimizes gaps and uneven watering from wind, soil, and gradient conditions. Having a time factor of movement, typical run times 12-25 minutes. Common replacement causes; leaking seals,stuck not turning, poor distribution, not retracting, not popping up, turret popped off from mower tire. 
  Stream Rotary Heads, carousel to cover large areas. Using short and long streams, they cover with great coverage.  Diverse in performance with a broad range of 10-30 feet for a multitude of applications. Often sold as water conservative these water at a slower rate, but in many cases still need longer run times to accomplish similar watering as common sprays. They have unique applications but effective. 
 Zone Control Valves, are the faucet or switching part of the system. Here low voltage 24 volts, electrical signals from the controller energizes one at a time to allow a particular zone to run for the time designated. Bugs usually fill the cavity with castings and soils so this clean is never seen in the field!
Irrigation Controllers
Basically a timer that programs a sequence thru each area or zone to water your property. Most controllers offer greater than needed diversity. Based off calendar and time clock principle we can set any day/time or routine we need. WIFI Smart Watering controllers use soil and site conditions in determining schedules to ensure no more than needed water is applied. Now offering Smart Technology controls like Rachio, BHyve, and Rain Bird which use smart phone technology to control via WiFi and Bluetooth to adjust from anywhere, grant technicians operation without garage access to name a few features. 
**Key priorities found with these systems are conectivity to your home router wifi link for optimum choice**

Winterizations by Happy Heads Irrigation Services consists of using compressed air, blowing out the water from the Back Flow Device as well as the whole system. This ensures no frost/burst damage to occur from Ol' Man Winters cold blanket.
I have seen many systems endure the cold frost, but it is a highly recommended service as I typically see many Back Flow Devices each spring need replacement, and similar amounts of zone control valves from freeze damage. Typical repairs of these components start at $495.00. 
Other companies simply drain the Back flow Device and shut off the controller. The zone valves have a simple plastic cover which offers no insulation value leaving them susceptible to frost damage.  
Our winterize service costs start at $65.00 for most systems and is a sure way to not have costly repairs in the spring.

We offer group discounts when scheduling with neighbors which saves my time by consolidating trips. 
Schedule an appointment to winterization typically starting late October, early November.
