The Title of this blog is,”Sprinkler Repair in Oklahoma City, Sprinkler Systems, Sprinkler Installation, French Drains.”

Today we replaced a broken, “Back-Flow-Valve,” In Oklahoma City.  It had not been properly installed and had frozen and busted when it got cold.  This is a very common problem with many Sprinkler SystemsSprinkler System Code for most of Central Oklahoma requires an above ground Back-Flow-Valve to be installed correctly with any new Sprinkler System Installation.  Because following local sprinkler system code is difficult, many, “FLY BY NIGHT SPRINKLER COMPANIES,” Choose to cut corners when they can get away with it.   Unfortunately the customer suffers as a result.  I have replaced hundreds of Back-Flow-Valves that were not installed properly in central Oklahoma.

Sprinkler Repair along with Lawn Sprinkler Installation is a central focus for CMG Sprinkler and Drain.

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

One of the most common problems that we come across while Repairing Sprinkler Systems, is Broken Sprinkler Pipes.

Broken Sprinkler Pipes occur for all kinds of reasons.  The first and most common reason  is poor Sprinkler System Installation.   Many times the wrong kind of PVC Glue is used or no primer is used with the glue.   The Glue, by itself, doesn’t bond very well with the PVC Pipe. It needs primer to bond correctly.

This is one of the worst situations for the home owner.  About two years after Sprinkler Installation the Sprinkler System starts to leak at the pipe  joints.  Get one fixed and soon another pipe connection starts to leak.  One Sprinkler leak turns into many.

Tree Roots Break Sprinkler Pipes and cause leaks.  When it is hot and dry,  tree roots seek out any moisture they can find.  Sprinkler Pipes that are damp or are leaking a little, become the target for tree roots.   Soon roots have the Sprinkler Pipes in a vise-like grip and they begin to squeeze.  This results in more leaks which results in more roots.  (and so-on)

In the hot Oklahoma Summer months,  The ground cracks and buckles.  This stresses and breaks sprinkler pipes.

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 Heads and Sprinkler Pipes to fit the new dimensions of your yard.  We can redesign or add-on to sprinkler systems where the home owners needs change.

Sprinkler System Installation in Oklahoma can be complicated.   There are many details that very important to ensure that a new Sprinkler System be durable and dependable for many years to come.  Attention to detail makes all the difference when installing a Sprinkler System.  Many times, So-Called, ” Fly By Night Sprinkler Companies,”  cut lots of corners to save money.  Low price should not be the determining factor for having a Sprinkler System installed.  A cheap Sprinkler System soon becomes very expensive if it has to be fixed all the time or won’t work at all.

Two things you should require on any Sprinkler System:

1.  Make shure PRIMER  is used along with PVC Glue when the Sprinkler Pipe is put together.  Primer helps the glue to bond to the PVC pipe.  This ensures that all the pressurized pipe connections won’t leak over time.  I have seen Sprinkler Systems that were no more than a year old that leaked everywhere.  Again some Sprinkler Contractors will cut corners with the Primer.

2.  Make shure the connection for the Sprinkler System at the water meter is done with a, “compression T.”  This ensures that no leaks will occur over time at this connection.  The Sprinkler Connection at the water meter is highly stressed every time the Sprinkler System is turned on.  A connection with Glue and Primer will not hold up to the stress over time.  This is why a Compression T must be used.  This is another area that some Sprinkler Contractors choose to cut corners.

The above two points are just a few of the details that need to be considered when installing a Lawn Sprinkler System.

For twenty years, CMG has been paying close attention to the important details necessary to ensuring the Installation of Sprinkler Systems that are dependable and will last.

My name is Blane Callen. I have owned and operated CMG Sprinklers and Drains since 1993.  I take great pride in my work.  The Letters “CMG” stand for the first letter of the first name of each of my children.  ( Chance, Melissa, Garrett )  = CMG

I have amassed a great deal of experience designing and installing Sprinkler SystemsRepairing Sprinkler Systems, and designing and installing Drainage SystemsIn the past 19 years, I have made mistakes, but I have learned from them.  As a result I get calls, from time to time,  from other Sprinkler and Drainage companies that have run into a problem that they can’t handle.  I am always glad to help.

I usually don’t take money up front for Sprinkler Installation, Sprinkler Repair, or Drain Installation.  I prefer that the customer pay me when the job is complete and they are happy with the work.  In a few cases on very large jobs I request a draw or outlay for parts.  The parts are delivered from my supplier to the address where the job is being done and equal the amount of the draw.  The parts stay on the premises until they are installed.
