Fire and Lawn Sprinklers
Fire and Lawn Sprinkler Installation from Your Local Expert Missouri Plumber
24/7 Reliable Plumbing Service from Plumbers 911
Installing a sprinkler system in your home or yard can raise the value of your property, give you a fresh and green lawn, and keep your home protected in case a fire occurs. However, these systems are complex, and if they aren’t installed by a knowledgeable professional, the chances that they will malfunction are high. You don’t want your fire sprinkler to go off when it’s not supposed to – and you definitely don’t want it to stay off when it should be activated.
When fire sprinklers are activated, they don’t all go off simultaneously. Only one sprinkler will spray over the location of the fire, so you don’t have to worry about water damage throughout your entire house.
Your sprinklers won’t accidently go off every time you leave a casserole in the oven a little too long, because they are activated by heat, not smoke.
Your local Kansas plumbing expert will work with you to:
- Determine which type of water pipe, sprinkler heads, and other components will work best in your home.
- Design a sprinkler system that is both efficient and effective.
- Place the sprinkler heads in the most effective locations – near your oven, for instance, or over the area where you put your Christmas tree.
- Install your new system with a minimum of disruption to your home’s current layout – if you are having a new home built, make sure to have your fire sprinkler system installed before the finishing work begins.
- Show you how to turn your sprinkler system off when the fire is put out, and help you understand how your new sprinkler system works with the rest of the plumbing in your house.
The Best Plumbers in Missouri are Standing By to Keep Your Home Safe
If you are still fighting the old cost versus benefits battle when it comes to having fire sprinklers installed in your home, here are a few more things to consider.
Fire sprinklers can raise the value of your home, which is never a bad thing, even if you aren’t planning on selling any time soon.
You may qualify for a discount on your homeowner’s insurance with sprinklers.
According to the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), your chances of surviving a house fire increase by over 85% with sprinklers, and sprinklers can reduce damage to your home by up to 97%.
Most sprinklers are activated in under a minute – even the swiftest emergency vehicle can’t get to your house that fast to put out a fire.
Our Missouri Plumbing Services Include Lawn Sprinklers, Too
Although Missouri usually gets lots of rain to keep your lawn looking lush and green through the hottest months, our contractors can install lawn sprinklers for those weeks when the rain just isn’t quite enough. We can send someone right to your door to help you install a variety of lawn sprinkler systems and products, including:
- Traditional Automatic Sprinklers. While these types of sprinklers are not among the more water-efficient systems, the addition of soil moisture sensors and rain gauges can help them conserve water. These are great for watering larger lawns – just make sure to use them in the earliest morning hours or after the sun has started setting to avoid losing water through evaporation.
- Drip Irrigation Systems. These systems are best for watering gardens and trees, and tend to be more water-efficient than other systems. Drip irrigation delivers water to your plants slowly, to avoid over-watering, and is less likely to lose water to evaporation during the day. Some soil types also absorb water from a drip irrigation system better, because the water is released at a slower rate.
- Rotor Spray Systems. When you need to cover a very specific area or need your sprinkler to conform to a very specific pattern, a rotor system may be your best bet. Rotor systems can also deliver very minute amounts of water throughout the day, and can cover smaller lawns without wasting water.
- Rain Sensors. These little devices can sense when it is raining and signal your sprinkler system to shut off until the rain stops.
- Soil Moisture Sensors. Although they may be more expensive than rain sensors, soil moisture sensors are also more effective. As the name suggests, these sensors tell your sprinkler system to water only when the soil is too dry.
- Hose Bib Timers. If you have traditional sprinklers, you can use a timer to activate your sprinkler system so you won’t have to remember to turn it on and off every day.
- Backflow Prevention. A backflow prevention device is mandatory for every watering system, to prevent potentially contaminated water from flowing back into the water supply – in other words, your drinking water.
