Will an automatic sprinkler system use more
water than I’m currently using?
Depending on your current water usage, most
homeowners will actually conserve water. Our
Certified Irrigation Designers at KT Irrigation, will custom design a watering
schedule that will keep you from wasting water
and prevent runoff from over watering. And, with
your Mini-Click Rain Sensor, your system will
not run when it rains. A lawn sprinkler system
installed by KT Irrigation will allow your
water usage to be more cost effective.

Definitely. You will no longer have to spend
your valuable time dragging hose and moving
sprinklers. Your KT Irrigation lawn
sprinkler system will automatically do all of
the watering for you, even when you are out of
town. Most systems run overnight and are
finished before you even leave the house in the
morning. If you live in a county that tends to
go on water restrictions during the hot months,
an automatic sprinkler system gives you a huge
advantage by watering only on the days you are

there different systems from which to choose?
typical residential irrigation system will be
comprised of a Controller (which functions as
the brain of the system), Remote Valves (which
open and close to release and stop the flow of
water to each zone), and Sprinkler Heads (either
Spray Heads or Rotors, which distribute the
water to a given area). There is typically two
different ways of tying into your Main Water
Supply. One being in the basement where your
Main Water Line comes out of the foundation and
the other being outside by the Water Meter. Your
KT Irrigation representative can determine
which is best for individual property. There is
also a wide range of Manufacturers and Parts
available in the irrigation industry. It is not
necessary for all your parts to be from the same
manufacturer. KT Irrigation will design a system using a combination
of parts that will provide many years and worry
free operation. Our extensive experience allows
us to custom design a system based on your
individual requirements and budget.
How do I know what type of system is best
KT Irrigation, our Certified sales
representatives will discuss your individual
options and budget and design a custom system
for your specific property. We will consider
such factors as water source and pressure, soil
type, plant material and weather conditions.
Is it cheaper for me to install my own system?
A: In the
long run, it could cost you more money. KT Irrigation will custom design and install a
cost-effective, efficient lawn sprinkler system.
Our Certified Designers will select the right
material and products for your system. We will
design your system with Head-to-Head coverage
(overlapping patterns that insure proper
dispersion of water) and Matched Precipitation
(making sure each sprinkler head is producing
the same amount of water regardless of its
pattern). We are also familiar with all local
plumbing and electrical codes, including
Backflow Prevention, so you won’t have to worry
about costly mistakes in wiring or plumbing. Our
professional crews can do the job faster, with
less disruption to existing landscaping, and we
guarantee our work.
method do you use to install the underground
piping for my system?
There are two basic methods of installing
irrigation piping in your lawn. We at KT Irrigation use a Vibrator Plow to install our
lines. This is a large machine with a hydraulic
arm that cuts a slit in your lawn and pulls the
pipe down into the ground. As the machine drives
forward the pipe is fed behind it. To install
the heads, we just dig up the line at each
connection point. The other method of installing
pipe is to use a Trencher, which is where the
earth is removed and then back-filled. This
method is more popular on commercial sites or
where there is no grass.
Q: Is it
difficult to understand or operate the system?
KT Irrigation representative will help
select a Controller for your system, and will
set it based on your individual watering needs.
We will also give you a general watering
schedule and explain how to make adjustments if
necessary. A full tutorial of the Controller
will be given right after the install. All
controllers come with an instruction manual, or
you can call us for assistance.
