Frequently Asked Questions

What are some warning signs that might indicate I have a problem with my sprinklers?

Many of us take our sprinklers for granted. We often don’t pay attention to our sprinklers until we realize there is a problem. So how does a homeowner know something is wrong?

It’s time to consider scheduling an inspection if you notice any of the following:

  • Sudden increases in your water bill (especially if you have ruled out other sources of water leaks)
  • Areas of your yard being consistently too dry
  • Areas of your yard being consistently too wet
  • Plants or grass looking less healthy than usual
  • Sprinkler heads that are stuck in the downward position or aren’t spraying as they should
  • Low water pressure

Can you install a new sprinkler system?

While we don’t install complete sprinkler systems, our technicians can install new sections or pieces as needed. Your existing system may need an upgrade if your watering needs have changed or if one area is damaged beyond repair. Our irrigation team can also collaborate with ABC’s landscaping pros to extend an existing system to keep new plants and grass thriving in our dry and hot climate.

Should I get a drip irrigation system?

Many homeowners prefer drip irrigation as an alternative to traditional sprinkler systems. Benefits of drip irrigation systems include:

  • Minimize the risk of overspray and evaporation that can occur with above-ground sprinkler heads
  • Use less water, which can translate into lower utility bills and less water waste over time
  • Connect directly to your existing outdoor faucet, so that you don’t need to cut into your home’s water line
  • Provide flexibility, so that you can expand and adjust your system more easily as your plants grow
  • Offer precision, so that water goes exactly where you want it and not where it might promote weed growth
  • Prevent excessive moisture that can lead to yard fungus
  • Allow for more gentle watering, which can protect you from erosion

Can ABC help me save water?

In many cases, Plano homeowners have found that sprinkler systems are the main culprit for water waste on their property.

An easy way to reduce water waste and avoid the potential of having a costly water bill is to keep your sprinklers well-maintained. The main steps to maintain these sprinklers are regularly checking and adjusting your sprinkler heads to repair any leaks to ensure water is effectively distributed across your yard.

We are happy to provide routine sprinkler maintenance so you don’t have to worry about water waste. If you are concerned about your water usage, ABC’s sprinkler system professional can provide advice on how to conserve water.

When should I set my sprinkler system to run?

Many folks in Collin County are surprised to hear that the best time to operate their sprinkler system is in the morning because that’s when plants can best absorb water. While it may sound positive, watering your plants at night leads to more moisture accumulation. Since water is less likely to evaporate overnight, watering outside of the daylight hours can put your plants at risk of developing yard fungus. And on the flip side, operating your sprinkler system in the afternoon has the opposite effect, since this is when the most water is lost to evaporation.

Why do I have dry spots on my lawn?

Dry spots on a lawn could mean that your sprinkler heads are clogged, your watering schedule needs to be adjusted or your valves are malfunctioning. In some cases, grass or plants that looked stressed can be suffering from a fungus or another type of lawn condition, or they may be wilted because of poor soil. ABC’s lawn pros work hand in hand with our sprinkler team to diagnose your problem and make adjustments to make sure your landscape is getting the water and nutrients it needs.

What should I do to winterize my sprinkler system?

In some parts of the country, homeowners winterize their irrigation systems each year to prepare for extreme temperatures. Because Dallas weather is so unpredictable, you never know if or when temperatures will dip below freezing. Sudden cold snaps are the time to keep a close eye on your sprinkler system to make sure your parts don’t sustain damage.

To winterize your sprinkler system, you’ll need to turn off your system and wrap any exposed metal components with insulation. Run your system once a month during when it’s consistently cold out to prevent your valves and heads from becoming cracked and brittle. In the late fall, ABC can perform a pre-winter system inspection to make any adjustments needed to avoid potential freeze damage and inspect your system when temperatures warm up and you plan to start watering again regularly.

“We have been using ABC for years for our Pest Control. We love their communication. They always send us reminders of the date and time they will be there to make sure that our dogs are secured and away from the back yard. We love having the same technician come out because he knows our house. Earlier this year, during the winter, when temperatures dropped- there was a part of our house that wasn't heating up. My husband called ABC and told them the issue, my husband said the person who talked to him on the phone was super friendly and they told us that a technician would be out there the same day. Our concern was that if we called an HVAC company they would try to sell us an entirely new unit. Our technician showed up later that day, and found the issue. They were completely honest and didn't try to sell us a new unit that we didn't need. After finding the issue, they came back the next time with the part we needed and quickly fixed it. We were super impressed by how honest and easy to work with they were!”
