5 Reasons to Install an Irrigation Well and Pump System

Paramount Well Service provides a wide range of services for commercial and residential water treatment in Bucks County and other areas of southeastern Pennsylvania. One example is the installation of irrigation well and pump systems. These systems can save a homeowner time, money, and stress. Consider an irrigation system if you…

Have an Unhealthy Lawn

Sprinklers or a hose can leave water droplets sitting on a plant’s foliage, causing leaf disease and blight. They can also compact the soil, leading to root disease and dying plants. In contrast, irrigation systems water directly at the root, which keeps the soil full of nutrients and plants vibrant. This type of watering also leads to fewer weeds.

Want to Protect the Environment

Since irrigation systems supply water directly to the soil, less is lost to runoff or evaporation. Further, some systems allow you to specify the water amounts that different areas of the yard receive, which means it uses only the water that your plants need.

Want to Protect Your Bank Account

It takes half a gallon of water to keep one square foot of lawn healthy for one week. If you have a large lawn, that number can add up to the equivalent of swimming pools over time. There may be even more waste if a sprinkler system is watering more sidewalk than grass. An irrigation system means you don’t have to pay for that water — just the electricity to keep the pump running. Add a couple of hose bibs, and you can save even more on outdoor water usage such as filling up the pool, cleaning the patio, and washing the car.

Come from a Drought Area

When the summer sun dries up your town and the municipality enforces strict water bans, your green lawn will be the envy of the neighborhood. A residential irrigation system belongs only to the homeowner, so there’s no worry about the municipality cutting off your water supply.

Spend Too Much Time Watering Your Lawn

Some sources suggest that a homeowner should spend one hour a week watering his or her lawn. That’s an hour that you could spend with family or friends. You could read a book, catch up on your favorite show, or go for a run. Instead, you’re stuck in the yard, trying not to drown the grass. Further, the best time to water a lawn is before sunrise, between 3 and 6 a.m. You could drag yourself out of bed, or you could let an irrigation system do the work for you.
