FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS:
- Where does my irrigation water come from?
The irrigation water is supplied from golf course ponds which are filled from
ground water wells and storm water run off. It is a non-potable water
- How does the system operate?
The system is operated by a central computer which controls a series of valves that open and close to supply the necessary amount of water for healthy turf.
- Who manages the system?
The system is managed by Ballantrae Golf Club, under direction of the Golf
- When does the system run?
Water cycles are calculated by the central computer which takes into account several factors, including natural rain fall, temperatures and evapotranspiration. This means that there is not a regular set time when your lawn is watered.
- How do I know the system is working?
Is your grass green? Then it’s working! If you notice brown areas it could be anything from low fertility to grubs or chinch bugs but let us know and we will come out and make sure you’re heads are adjusted properly.
- Why does my lawn struggle beside the driveway and curbs?
This area is where the snow is piled when the driveways and roads are cleared. This snow is usually mixed with salt which adversely affects the grass plant’s ability to take up water and nutrients. During periods of high heat and drought, driveways and curbs act as heat conductors that dry out the soil faster than the body of the lawn.
- What about my flowers?
The system is designed to supply the appropriate amount of water to maintain healthy turf. Your flowers (depending on the time of year) may require additional hand watering.
- What do I do if a sprinkler head is stuck up when not in use?
Sometimes heads stick in the up position, gently tap the top and it will pop back down. If it remains up repeatedly, call us and we will repair the head.
- Who do I call for repair?
For any repair e-mail email@example.com.
- Am I charged for repair?
There is no charge for normal repair or adjustment. The homeowner will be charged for any damage that they or their agents cause. There is also a charge for head relocation if you are making alterations to your property.
- What is the emergency number for?
Call the emergency number if:
– you notice large volumes of water flowing from the turf.
– water is entering your home.
– if a sprinkler head runs longer than 2 hours.
Please be aware that a fee of $90 + HST will apply if you call the emergency
line outside of regular business hours, and the attending technician deems
that your situation is not an emergency.
