Irrigation Basics

SIMPLICITY
When an  irrigation system is installed, you'll never have to drag a hose all over the yard, never have to try and figure out if you've applied enough or too much water, and you'll never have to worry about watering the lawn while you're away.

EFFICIENCY
We use a variety of products that focus on quality and efficiency to grow healthy, sustainable landscapes while using less water than ever.

VALUE
Attractive landscaping requires substantial investment and careful maintenance. An automatic irrigation system protects that investment by growing healthier, longer living plants and grass. Healthy, well-manicured landscapes will also measurably increase your property's appraised value and curb appeal.










CONTROLLERS/TIMERS
Controllers are the brains of a sprinkler system. They activate and deactivate designated irrigation zones according to programmed run times. Properly programmed controllers ensure a landscape is receiving the right amount of water at the optimal watering time. Choosing the right controller typically depends on the number of zones needed in a system, and whether or not those zones will be added to or reduced in the future.
Controllers are reliable and easy to program. In addition to the advanced capabilities offered in  controllers, our controllers can also be upgraded to a smart controller with products such as a weather sensor, which adjusts your watering schedule automatically based on daily weather conditions, resulting in increased water savings throughout the year.









ROTORS
Hunter Industries offers rotor sprinklers that can apply water from 15 feet to over 160 feet, and are designed to irrigate large turf areas by spreading a solid stream of water back and forth over a designated area. Hunter is the industry leader in the rotor category, and has been since introducing the PGP rotor in 1981. If space permits, rotors are generally the go-to solution for grass areas.  Rotors are the most effective way to irrigate large areas and can apply water at lower rates, thus preventing runoff from occurring.









SPRAYS
Pop-up spray sprinklers consist of a nozzle and body and apply water to a given area between 2 and 30 feet. Hunter offers a wide variety of nozzle and spray body solutions. The proper spray body and nozzle combination is found by considering plant type, soil type, and area shape, and matching the correct model.  Hunter offers a variety of fixed and adjustable spray nozzles to fit any application. Pro Adjustable Nozzles allow the user to set the arc between 45 and 360 degrees for convenience and accuracy. Pro Fixed Nozzles feature fixed-arc settings for solid coverage along well-defined angles.  For optimal water efficiency, Hunter offers the revolutionary MP Rotator—a long-awaited alternative to traditional spray nozzles. The MP Rotator emits several rotating streams of water at low application rate, which uses less water and ensures the landscape receives only the amount of water it needs to thrive. MP Rotators are proven to decrease water use by 30% over traditional spray nozzles.










VALVES
Valves are the heart of an irrigation system.  They open and close to allow water to be distributed from the irrigation system's pipes to the watering components. Residential valves suit a wide range of performance demands, and have built a strong reputation as the most reliable in the industry.







DRIP/MICRO IRRIGATION
When plants and shrubs require small amounts of water delivered right at the plant's root zone, a drip irrigation product is generally the go-to solution. Drip irrigation product lines include efficient dripline, bubblers, and root zone watering products.  Drip irrigation is designed to optimize water use in small irrigation areas.
