LOW PRESSURE ISSUES

Low pressure issues are generally caused by multiple users irrigating at the same time of day.  Please review the watering schedule for your subdivision located on our website.  If you cannot find your subdivision listed, please contact your HOA for your watering time.  It is also necessary to periodically clean your irrigation pre-filter which is located in the green irrigation box in your back yard.
