The Austin drought situation is not letting up. Currently the reservoirs are at only 37% of capacity and officials are stamping down on waste water. It is smart for anyone to have their irrigation system working smoothly when the hot weather arrives.
Austin, Tx (PRWEB) January 23, 2014
Many irrigation system owners in Austin simply shut down their systems in the fall despite any repairs or problems they know already exist. They figure they’ll just leave the repairs until the spring when they want to get their systems up and running. Licensed irrigation expert Matt Sorenson is now advising clients that waiting until spring is sometimes too late to get speedy repairs to their systems. In fact, the best time is right now for a variety of reasons.
“Although many people don’t start thinking about getting their system inspected and/or repaired until the spring, it is actually a bit late,” advises Sorenson, a Texas licensed irrigator (LI 18964) who holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture and Horticulture from Kansas State University. “The reason for this is that everyone in the spring tries to get service all at the same time. This makes it difficult for companies to keep up with the demand and clients get backlogged, sometimes for weeks. This should be avoided if possible, especially with current drought conditions.”
For the last several years, Sorenson’s South Austin Irrigation has been offering a winter special to encourage clients to start getting their systems checked and repaired now rather than wait. This year, from January 25th to February 28th, South Austin Irrigation is offering a 10% discount on all irrigation system repairs.
