For any large growing operation, regular irrigation maintenance is an essential part of keeping your crops healthy and protecting your irrigation system from long-term damage. Read about our water treatment preventative maintenance program below to discover how it could help your farm to thrive.
What is the Water Treatment Preventative Maintenance Program?
The irrigation maintenance service that we offer at Fruit Growers Supply is a regular schedule of visits and maintenance activities that are designed to prevent the harmful buildup of minerals, algae, and bacteria at the emitters in your micro irrigation system.
By taking good care of your irrigation system during the on-season, you can ensure a longer lifespan for your irrigation system, prevent the need for early system replacement, and ensure that your irrigation water can flow freely to ensure the largest possible yield.
What Does the Program Include?
As part of the irrigation maintenance program, you will receive monthly site visits from our team in which we will monitor and report on your system to ensure that it’s running optimally and your crops are receiving the water they need. In addition to the monthly checks, you will also receive:
- A free water analysis
- Monthly drum level monitoring and treatment
- Monthly visual inspections to check for leaks in the filtration system and/or broken and missing parts
- Monthly monitoring of the system pressure and flow, if applicable
- Verification of sand levels in media tanks after the irrigation season or upon request
- A service report that includes:
- Metering pump calibration setting
- Drum size
- System pressures and flows
- Meter readings
- Drum levels
- Dates serviced
As well as the services we’ve already mentioned as part of our standard irrigation maintenance program, we can also provide system reconditioning if the system shows signs of plugging, prior to beginning the maintenance schedule, and after the irrigation season is over to ensure the system is left in impeccable condition.
