TBI's 2013 Irrigation season started with the newly contracted strata, Oliver's Landing in Furry Creek. Oliver's Landing is a beautiful 79 townhome subdivision perched right on the Ocean. This system has a total of 34 zones averaging 20 sprinklers each totalling a sprinkler head count of over 700.
During the initial spring startup, I conducted an audit of each zone and addressed all necessary issues. The now mature landscape had outgrown the original system design in some areas so upgrades and adjustments were addressed accordingly.
I found that theses shrubs had grown high above the current sprinklers therefore blocking them from watering the entire garden properly. By adding risers, the water could once again reach the desired area.
Here I found a leak...
And the culprit...
Water conservation is a high priority with TBI Irrigation. Rainbird™ Wireless Rain Sensors were installed to prevent the system from watering when nature does the job on its own.
The system was now ready to start watering precisely and efficiently. In order to ensure proper watering amounts and conservative water usage, many environmental components need to be examined, such as the amount of sun/shade, slope, wind, soil and specific vegetations. With all of these factors considered, each individual zone was scheduled precisely, providing this beautifully landscaped neighbourhood with the most accurate and efficient watering system possible.
