SPRAY SPRINKLERS VS. DRIP IRRIGATION
There are two types of irrigation systems we can currently install, spray sprinklers or drip lines. Both are a convenient and simple way to water your landscape. Although, there is a substantial difference between these systems.
Spray sprinklers shot water in predefined patterns to irrigate large areas of grass with higher amounts of water. Meanwhile, drip irrigation systems in Portland control water consumption and the conditions of vegetation growth by directly irrigating the roots of plants.

03. Installation – Once you approve the estimate, our technicians will start assembling the irrigation system for your house or business.
IRRIGATION SYSTEM MAINTENANCE
After the installation, most users believe that the irrigation system will always operate seamlessly. However, maintenance is vital to ensure the long-term functionality of your spray sprinklers or drip lines. Without an upkeep schedule, the unit will start experiencing common issues.
The parts that are usually affected by a lack of maintenance are the nozzles or emitters, control valves, PVC pipes or distribution lines, and backflow prevention device. If any of these components breaks down, expect inconsistent irrigation patterns, higher utility bills, and even potable water contamination.
