Benefits of Irrigation Services

A properly installed and maintained irrigation system can bring multiple benefits beyond what hand-watering can provide, such as:

Consistent and uniform coverage
  Increased Efficiency
 Saved Time
 Automatic shut-off during rain (with installed rain sensor)

Types of Irrigation Maintenance:


Each spring, a visit is scheduled for one of our trained technicians to come and activate your property’s system. At this time, an efficiency assessment is also performed to ensure all sprinkler heads and zones are functioning properly. (This is also included in our preventive maintenance program)


A backflow test is required by St. Louis County and must be performed annually to ensure your home’s drinking water is protected. Many times, Horstmann Brothers prefers to complete this at the same time as the spring activation. (This is also included in our preventive maintenance program)


As part of our irrigation service packages, Horstmann Brothers offers customers three strategically-scheduled system checks. During a system check, our technicians inspect each zone of your system. make necessary repairs to guarantee your system is functioning properly. (This is also included in our preventive maintenance program)


Whenever your system needs a repair, simply call our office and a visit will be promptly scheduled. Only trained irrigation team responds to service calls; once at your property, a thorough assessment is taken and repairs are made only as needed. A quote will be given prior to repairs being performed.


Horstmann Brothers can provide system tuneups, calculate how long your system should run, and develop a watering schedule based on weather and seasonal conditions.


Winterizing your system each fall is necessary to prevent against freeze damage. Horstmann Brothers’ winterization procedure consists of turning off the backflow, clearing the water out of all pipes and components utilizing compressed air and tagging the backflow. Horstmann Brothers recommends winterizing your system no later than the third week of November. (This is also included in our preventive maintenance program)
