Hopefully 2012 wont be as hot as 2011.  Record heat for Central Oklahoma caused the death of trees, shrubs, and grass all over the state.  A new Lawn Irrigation System installed by CMG  can help solve these problems. Sprinkler Systems water much faster and more efficiently than dragging hoses around all day to water your yard.

In-Line Sprinkler Pipe Drain

Our Sprinkler Systems areSelf-Draing.   The Sprinkler Pipes  Drain underground when the Irrigation System is turned off.   Nothing needs to be done to prepare your Irrigation System for winter except turn it off.  There is no water left in the Sprinkler Pipes to Freeze.

Just like a home or a car, a Sprinkler System requires repair or adjustment from time to time.  We at CMG, take great pride in the Sprinkler Repair Services that we provide.  In almost 18 years of service, CMG has solved virtually every Sprinkler Repair Problem possible.  We solve Sprinkler Repair Problemsthat other companies can’t handle.  If you live in Oklahoma Cityand have Broken Sprinkler Heads, or if you live in Norman and have Leaking Sprinkler Valves, or if you live in Edmond and your Sprinkler Controller quit working, give us a call or send us an e-mail. 405 – 226-0629 cmgsprinklers@hotmail.com

Lawn Sprinkler Repair is one of our business focuses.   We can help with:

1. Sprinkler Controller Problems

2. Leaking Back-Flow Valves

3. Leaking Sprinkler Pipes

4.  Shorted or disconnected valve wires

5. Sprinkler Zones or Sprinkler Stations that won’t work

6. Broken Sprinkler Heads

7.  Sprinkler Head Adjustment

The above are the most common problems that we deal with.

CMG Sprinklers and Drains can help if you need to re-design your sprinkler system. If for example you are adding a swimming pool in your back yard, we can move the sprinkler headsand sprinkler pipes to fit the new dimensions of your yard. We can redesign or add-on to sprinkler systemswhere the home owners needs change.

Sprinkler Repair is a central focus for CMG Sprinklers and Drains.  Just like any car or home, a lawn sprinkler system must be updated and maintained.  Typically people wait till spring to get the kinks worked out of their sprinkler system.

I can tell you this, DON’T WAIT TILL MARCH TO GET YOUR SPRINKLER SYSTEM IN SHAPE.  BY APRIL THERE WILL BE A  FLOOD OF PEOPLE TRYING TO GET BROKEN SPRINKLER HEADS FIXED OR NEW SPRINKLER CONTROLLERS INSTALLED OR LEAKING BACK-FLOW VALVES REPLACED.  THIS YEAR CMG SPRINKLER AND DRAIN WILL INCREASE OUR SPRINKLER REPAIR STAFF.  LAST YEAR OUR WAITING LIST WAS 4-5 WEEKS BEFORE WE COULD GET TO THE CUSTOMER.  WITH THAT BEING SAID, CMG WILL NOT COMPROMISE ON THE QUALITY OF OUR WORK TO GET TO THE NEXT CUSTOMER ON THE LIST.  LAST YEAR WE LOST BUSINESS BECAUSE WE COULD NOT GET TO EVERYONE IN A TIMELY MANOR.  HOWEVER, EVERY CUSTOMER WE DID WORK FOR WAS HAPPY AND SATISFIED WITH THE JOB WE DID.

CONSIDER GETTING YOUR SPRINKLER REPAIR WORK DONE ANY TIME OTHER THAN THE SPRING.  FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE NO CHOICE AND MUST HAVE WORK DONE IN THE SPRING, SCHEDULE AS EARLY AS YOU CAN.

OUR SPRINKLER REPAIR WORK IS TOP QUALITY AND OUR PRICES ARE FAIR.  IT IS OUR GOAL TO GET TO CUSTOMERS QUICKLY IN MARCH AND APRIL, WHILE MAINTAINING OUR QUALITY OF WORK.

The Sprinkler System Problems listed above are the most common Sprinkler Problems that we deal with.

Just what is a “French Drain?”  Many times people incorrectly

use the phrase, “French Drain,”  to apply to many different types of Drains that could be used in a Drainage System.  The term is widely used and many times incorrectly connected to “Surface Drains,” or “Channel Drains.”

A Surface Drain has a grate that sits on top of a basin.  The basin is underground.  A Drain Pipe is connected underground to an outlet on the Drain BasinStorm-Water Drains through the grate into the Drain Basin.  Once in the Drain Basin, water travels out of the basin through a Drain Pipe.  The Storm-Water continues downhill in an underground Drain Pipe to an exit point.

THIS IS NOT A FRENCH DRAIN!

A Surface Drain may come in many different shapes or sizes.  The Drain Grate may be round or square.  Here is a picture of a common Surface Drain.

A Channel Drain is a type of Surface Drain and many times is installed in concrete across sidewalks or driveways.

A French Drain is completely different from a Surface Drain.  A basic French Drain consists of a Perforated Drain Pipe in the bottom of a trench.  The Drain Pipe should have a neoprene sock around the Perforated Drain Pipe.   This is to ensure that the Drain Pipe does not become clogged.

The dirt that was taken out to make the trench is hauled away.  It is replaced by some type of small stone or gravel depending on what is desired or available.  I prefer crushed 1 inch lime stone.  It is the most economical option in my area.  Pea Gravel or some other type of small stone can work just as well.    The lime-stone or gravel is placed in the trench on top of the perforated Drain Pipe and filled all the way to the surface (ground level).   In some cases where the French Drain needs to be deep or is being placed in sandy soil, a special trench liner must be placed in the trench before the perforated Drain Pipe or the Gravel are installed.  This helps maintain the integrity of the trench over time.  It also increases the cost of the French Drain and the amount of time to install it.  I install a trench liner in a French Drainabout 20% of the time.  Most of the time a liner in not needed.

French Drain March 2011
A French Drain is designed to handle a large volume of water and cover a large area. The Drain is anyplace the trench goes. It has many applications and can be used in many situations.  It can be installed by itself or incorporated into a Drainage System with Surface Drains or Gutter Down-Spouts connected to it.
The main downfall of a French Drain is that they, for the most part aren’t very pretty.  They don’t look very nice in a yard once they are completed.
Depending on the area the French Drain is installed and the type of grass around the French Drain, will dictate whether grass grows over the lime stone.  Grass can grow up and through the gravel in the French Drain over time eventually covering the gravel.  This is Ok.  It won’t have a measurable effect on the performance of the drain.
DONT COVER THE GRAVEL IN THE FRENCH DRAIN WITH DIRT.  THE FRENCH DRAIN WON’T WORK IF THE TRENCH IS CLOGGED WITH DIRT.  DON’T EVEN INSTALL IT IF YOU ARE GOING TO COVER IT UP WITH DIRT.
DECORATIVE STONE CAN BE USED TO COVER A FRENCH DRAIN AND THEY LOOK GREAT AND LAST A LIFETIME.

French Drains Can Look Great!
