The DIY irrigation installation process starts with supplying Raintech Irrigation with a copy of your RPR- Real Property Report as well as data about your home’s water pressure and gallons per minute deliverd by your outdoor tap. The current or future landscaping plan for your yard is also needed, and should show: raised beds, a water feature or any hardscaping; these can be indicated on your RPR to ensure these areas are included into the blueprint for your system.
All of this information is passed directly to our Installation Manager, he will draw up a blueprint for the physical system and determine the different types of irrigation parts that would best fit your yard.
