Now that it’s the summertime, everybody’s thinking about watering their lawns and keeping them nice and green until the fall arrives. If you’re a new home owner, the “source” of water for lawn irrigation systems may have never occurred to you, but now that you’re a homeowner, it’s definitely of interest.
If you’re landscaping your yard or getting sod for a “new build,” you’ll certainly be interested in learning about the source of your sprinkler’s water. When you install a lawn irrigation system, the landscapers will need to connect the system to your home’s plumbing system. This means that the cost of watering your lawn and keeping it lush and green will reflect in your home’s monthly water bill.
Unfortunately, most cities do not pay to water people’s lawns, except this does happen in some rural areas in certain parts of the country where there’s plenty of snow melt from the mountains. For the rest of us, we have to tap into our home’s water supply to fill our pools and water our gardens.
Can I Tap Into the Water Supply?
Suppose you’re installing your own sprinkler system, planting your own flowers and bushes, and laying your own sod. In that case, we do NOT recommend tapping into your home’s water supply without the help of a professional plumber.
If you make a mistake while tapping into your home’s water supply, it can get expensive and you’ll end up having to call a professional plumber to fix it. Instead, contact Excalibur Plumbing to get the job done right the first time.
Our advice is to call us BEFORE you begin installing the sprinklers, this way you can plan the project correctly and you won’t have to worry about making preventable mistakes.
