Every spring hundreds of homeowners across Omaha turn on their sprinkler systems hoping that every part is working just as it did the previous fall. Often times a sprinkler head doesn’t pop up right, or rotor head doesn’t turn correctly, or worse, there is no power to the sprinklers. When that happens, it’s time for you to call in the experts at Controlled Rain.
After several months of freezing temperatures, your sprinkler system and irrigation need to be properly tuned and checked before trying to water any part of your landscape. To prepare your system for the season, we turn your system on, check all system components and run a thorough test to make sure everything is working properly. Any damaged components are repaired and your system is set to go for another season.
Spring turn-ons are done starting in mid-April through May. Please call our office to schedule.
