UPDATED 11/6/17:
 

C N’R sprinkler winterizations (shut-downs/blow-outs) were officially completed on Wednesday, November 1st. After this milestone was reached, we unfortunately can no longer take on anymore sprinkler service calls. All C N’R team members are focusing 100% on fall clean up services. Thank you very much for your sprinkler system business for the entire season! We were blessed with enough rain where sprinklers were not much of a factor, but once we do have that dry season, many of us will appreciate their working sprinkler systems. See you next spring!

UPDATED 10/26/17: 

C N’R continues to winterize sprinkler systems, and will finish up on November 1st (our last day). All customers have been contacted/scheduled. If you feel you were on the schedule and you have not been contacted at all, please EMAIL CRAIG immediately.

NEW CUSTOMERS? Unfortunately, we apologize that our schedule is full for the rest of this season through November 1st. C N’R will not be able to complete anymore winterizations after that November 1st threshold. We do rent our compressor nowadays, and we only have it reserved through November 1st.

Any further questions, please EMAIL CRAIG.


UPDATED 10/3/17: 

Fall Sprinkler Winterizations (shut-downs/blow-outs) did officially start on October 2nd. C N’R will continue with this service through the end of October. Actually, Friday, October 27th will be our last possible day/date to complete these winterizations.

SCHEDULING? Craig is currently working on contacting all sprinkler winterization customers as this update is being written. The scheduling process will last through the middle of October. Keep abreast of your emails.


UPDATED 9/19/17:

Fall sprinkler shut-downs will begin October 2nd. It will take us until Halloween to finish up. Some customers need to be first, some middle, some last - but remember, this is a service and we try to schedule customers to help with the efficiency of our operations. With the wet year we have had this year, there should be no worries of winterizing your sprinkler system earlier during the time frame mentioned above. Again, we try to accommodate all customers within the time frame that best suits the situation. We do our best, but we cannot get them all done in a 2-week period. It takes about a month.

HOW DOES SCHEDULING WORK? You will receive an email or text of your scheduled date. Keep an eye out. As we get closer to October, we will start scheduling, but the scheduling process for the entire cycle will last until the middle of October (everyone is not scheduled all at once).

NEW CUSTOMERS? At this time in September, we do have an opportunity to schedule NEW sprinkler system winterizations. Once scheduling gets going, we tend to shut-down the opportunity for new customers to get on our list. So, please act fast and EMAIL CRAIG if you are looking to get on the C N’R sprinkler system blow-out schedule.

We will be in touch with later updates right here!

SPRINKLER SYSTEM SERVICE CALLS? We are available most days during the week (excluding some Fridays and all weekends) for general maintenance to any particular sprinkler system. During the season, things do go wrong, and C N’R is here at your service. Please EMAIL CRAIG to schedule a service call.

IRRIGATION TUNE-UPS? These are conducted 2x per summer to come by and check on the sprinkler systems to see if any problems have developed, and also to adjust water zone times to conserve water or increase watering habits. This depends on the current/past/future weather conditions.
C N’R 2nd round of these “check-ups” are happening during the weeks of August 7th and August 14th. If you are signed up for this service, you either have been contacted or attempted to be contacted (through email) to schedule this final round of tune-ups. Please keep an eye out in your inbox.

UPDATED 6/26/17: **NOTE: Our next update will occur sometime during the week of July 10th. Have a great & safe 4th of July holiday!

“First Round” of IRRIGATION TUNE-UPS? This is an OPTIONAL special service you can sign up for on C N’R’s irrigation contract. This service is explained as:

"Two sprinkler system tune-ups per season. Each visit, C N’R will adjust watering times for past/current/future weather and will complete an inspection of all sprinkler heads. Adjusting zone times will preserve water consumption and cost. Inspecting all sprinkler heads will resolve any zone coverage problems that possibly develop during the season.”

We are working on completing and/or contacting customers that are signed up for this service. This is our first round of tune-ups and is perfect timing as the summer hot temps come and go. If your system was started up really early this season, these system are being attended to and/or scheduled first and then from there, were are ordering our schedule depending on when you were started up. Because, those of you that were started up earlier, those systems can possibly have lower zone times set up because it was so much earlier in the season. And another reason we do this is because the system that have been running the longest, more problems with sprinkler heads for example are more likely than a system we have just opened up a few weeks ago.

Expect these tune-ups to last into early July.

Stay tuned for more updates.

UPDATED 6/5/17:

As of the end of Friday, June 2nd - this pretty much marked the completion of regular scheduled sprinkler system start ups. Since we have had nice spring rains this year, we are still receiving some calls to turn on more systems (later in the game) which we are open to schedule individually as we progress through June. Other than that, like we said above, it is about a wrap as far as the start up season goes.

FOR OUR IRRIGATION TUNE-UPS? If you signed up for this optional service on our irrigation contract, this includes 2 rounds of “check-ups” to your system. And as we get warmer now all of a sudden, it is perfect timing for C N’R to come back out to sprinkler systems and turn zone times up to account for the heat/dryer weather. These will start to be scheduled here through the month of June, so be in tune with your email. We will try to get to everyone as soon as possible before it gets too dry (if it does).

Stay tuned for more updates!


UPDATED 5/9/17:

Sprinkler System Start-ups continue to roll and we are very close to having all customers contacted and/or scheduled. If you are wondering about this, please simply EMAIL CRAIG. Otherwise, we plan to continue this service and continue to contact anyone we have not yet during the month of May and have all sprinkler systems up and running well before the end of May.


UPDATED 4/25/17:
Sprinkler System Start-Ups officially started during the week of 4/3 & 4/10 as we did complete some misc. jobs. But, our back-to-back scheduling officially started on Monday, April 17th. This service will last through the month of May, and we have it calculated it will take about 7 weeks to get all systems revved up. With that said, please have patience with the scheduling process and stay tuned to your email for your scheduled date. So far, technically a rainy spring, so this is good as well and there is not hurry to get the systems going as of yet.

UPDATED 4/10/17:
Our sprinkler system start-up season is very near! This is when we come around (by appointment only) and turn on/activate your irrigation system and fix any problems that are visible. This service will just START sometime during the week of April 17th. It will take until the end of May to “open” all systems. Please be patient and look for a scheduling email coming over the next month here. We understand that spring came early, and we are all so happy about that. This does not mean your system needs to be up and running ASAP. At this time of season, temps are cool - and also, we are season plenty of spurts of rain. Your grass/shrubbery/plants/trees etc. are just fine at the time. We will work hard to get all systems opened as fast as we can, but there are only so many we can accomplish each day.


UPDATED 3/30/17: Next update coming week of April 10th
As we approach and actually get into April, and once we kick off our spring season with spring clean ups, we will then know more on exact timing of our sprinkler system start up service. The week of April 17th is looking the most likely to start with solid daily schedules, but if weather is warm enough, some work might get done before this. We will see how the weather treats us and how fast we are able to start services. Nonetheless, we cannot start all systems at once. It is a 1-2 month process, so plenty of time here to iron out the details. Stay tuned!

UPDATED 2/27/17:
C N’R spring “start-up” irrigation services will likely start mid-Aprilish. Until we get much closer to this time frame, we will not have an exact start-date available and/or plan. With spring possibly coming early, we understand that we could possibly start up sprinklers a bit earlier too. We are watching that, but still - even if we get an early start this season, it is likely we still do not start the irrigation process until mid-April. Stay tuned!!
