With our first 100 degree days beginning, it’s time to remind everyone about the heat and hydration. Doesn’t matter if you are on the golf course, playing a racket sport, at the pool, or just out for a walk, make sure you have water. For any outdoor activity sun protection in the form of sunscreen and protective clothing is a must.

Is Your Irrigation System Ready for Summer?
Higher water pressure, hot Arizona sun, lightweight pipe and our stone covered yards all contribute to irrigation leaks. Handy homeowners can obtain repair parts at local hardware stores. However if major alterations or repairs are needed, it could be time to think about upgrading your piping system. Heavier grade flex pipe is available, and schedule 40 grade PVC pipe is the gold standard. These materials are also available at most local hardware stores, but do require a little more expertise to install.
To check your system, take a stroll around your yard while the system is on and watch for signs of leaks. Also, bear in mind that those hot summer temperatures mean that irrigation running times need to be extended. Every yard is different but as rule of thumb water output could be doubled by lengthening the time of irrigation. We recommended your refer to our watering guide or refer to the U of A watering schedule.
Fewer families living in The Highlands in the summer creates higher water pressures throughout the Dove Mountain area. This is why many leaks appear at this time of year. Be sure that your neighbor or your home sitter watches your yard for signs of leaks, and they know where your shut-off valve is located in case of emergency. If you see a leak, contact the front desk at 579-9574 and the homeowner will be contacted. Water is an expensive and precious commodity in Arizona – let’s all do our part to conserve it.
