Make It Rain! “Sprinkler Maniac will make it rain!” The point of having a sprinkler system is to create artificial rain so you can enjoy a green lawn, exquisite landscape plants, and maybe a home garden. Whenever installing a system, my goal is to make it rain on every inch of your yard, so you have no brown spots. This means taking the extra steps of adding a head or two here and there, and you can count on this from the Sprinkler Maniac.

A. Spray (Mister) Heads Spray heads effectively cover tight spaces and provide pinpoint coverage so that water does not penetrate siding on the house or other possessions you do not want watered. They make an incredible rain effect, looking like a mist, hence “Mister” heads. They range from 4” to 12” in height and can water from 5 feet to 18 feet in an assortment of patterns. This ensures all of your difficult-to-reach places get adequate water.

B. Rotor Heads Rotor heads provide coverage in open areas and provide an incredibly uniform watering pattern; 1 foot from the head receives the same amount of water as 35 feet from the head. Rotor heads can be adjusted from 30 to 360 degrees, and from about 10 feet to 35 feet. This diversity provides unmatched coverage in open areas.

Unique Irrigation Setups A

B

Drip irrigation is the most efficient way to water flowerbeds (A), planter beds (B), or garden boxes (D). Drip irrigation waters below mulch and directly next to the bush or flower to maximize the amount of water that penetrates the roots, while minimizing evaporative loss. This is the future of irrigation! Sprinkler Maniac installs drip irrigation to accommodate all of your watering needs, whether it’s flowerbeds, planter beds, or garden boxes.

B

D

Watering a big garden demands creativity and versatility in an irrigation design (C). For some garden applications, Sprinkler Maniac installs heads that stand approximately 5 to 6 feet in the air to provide the most realistic rain shower effect on your plants of choice. With this type of setup you have the freedom to plant different types of crops from year to year and not have to worry about whether the irrigation will be sufficient to provide complete coverage to your crops.

Zero to Hero: How a Sprinkler System Is Built

Upon arrival, flags are placed where heads go, water volume checked, and PVC main laid out.

Next, wire is laid out and pulled with the PVC main, and then poly pipe for lateral zones gets pulled.

Valves are then glued in, covered with boxes, neatly buried, and watered down to keep grass alive.

The poly pipe gets spliced either for heads (orange) or for a pipe fitting (gray). Note flexible silly pipe.

Mister heads are flushed, proper nozzles selected for all heads, and in a few minutes water is flowing!

Heads are adjusted to water only the grass and shrubs; this is a favorite activity on a hot summer day!

Last, the controller is hung, we pack up, and the homeowner gets a lesson on operating the system.

New installs come with a 5-year warranty on parts and labor.

Trenchless Pipe Pulling Sprinkler Maniac uses a Vermeer LM 42 Pipe Puller to lay pipe. Trenchless pipe pulling does minimal damage to your yard, so you don’t have to worry about your grass getting destroyed. Pipe is attached with a Chinese handcuff in a hole (A), pulled under the ground (B), and then removed at its destination hole (C). Pulling pipe creates a minor swell in the ground where the pipe is laid, but this is immediately run over to tighten up the ground and lock the pipe in place. During hot weather, we hose these lines down to ensure grass doesn’t burn out. In about 2 weeks you can’t even tell we were there, other than the fact your lawn will be green and beautiful!

Highest Quality Materials

Wilkins 720 Backflow Preventer

Rain Bird ESP Controller

Rain Bird 100 DV Valves

Wilkins backflow preventers keep water from the sprinkler system flowing back into the house water supply. They are super strong and user-friendly for the homeowner.

The most intuitive, user-friendly controller on the market is the Rain Bird â&#x20AC;&#x153;Extra Simple Programmingâ&#x20AC;? Controller. A dial with easy-to-follow choices makes programming your sprinkler system a piece of cake.

Rain Bird makes the highest quality valve on the market, and all valves installed on Sprinkler Maniac systems are glued to the Schedule 40 PVC main to ensure the strongest, most robust valve setup possible.

Schedule 40 PVC Main Pipe

Poly Pipe Laterals

Dawn Pipe Saddles

Sprinkler Maniac installs a Schedule 40 PVC main line with every system. It is the strongest, most robust main line setup that exists. It takes a bit longer to install, so most competitors avoid using one. However, it is the absolute best setup possible.

Given the rocky ground of Montana, poly pipe laterals are the best bet to use because they handle the freezing and thawing of the ground very well. In addition, they pull much cleaner and are easier to fix compared to PVC pipe.

Though Dawn saddles are more expensive, they are by far the strongest and best saddles on the market. They provide the connection between the lateral pipe and sprinkler head, and are the most resilient to leaks compared to other products.

Flexible Silly Pipe

Underground Irrigation Wire

Spears Fittings

Silly pipe is used to connect a sprinkler head to the lateral zone pipe, and is flexible enough to make for easy head relocations if moving of a head is necessary to accommodate changes in landscape.

Underground irrigation wire is installed with every system and is color-coded to designate specific zones. Waterproof wire nuts are used for every connection.

Spears fittings are used for all PVC and poly pipe connections. They are the strongest, most durable fittings on the market.
