Our Sprinkler Systems are Self-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 Problems that other companies can’t handle.

This week CMG completed a Sprinkler System, ” Pool-Makeover.”  This is a common situation.  When a home owner installs a new swimming pool, a back-hoe is used to dig the hole for the pool.  Typically the existing Sprinkler System ends up in a pile with several tons of dirt.

Unfortunately,  CMG Sprinklers and Drains was not the first choice for the home owner on the above mentioned, “Pool Makeover.”  The initial sprinkler company quit after two days.  They could not figure out which pipe went where, or what parts of the sprinkler system needed to be saved or replaced.

CMG was called to step in and handle the Extreme Sprinkler Repair.  It took us 4 days but we solved all the Sprinkler System ProblemsThe Sprinkler System now works, and the water coverage is better than before the pool installation.

If you live in Oklahoma City and 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

Many times a Drainage System must be installed in a home before it can be bought or sold.  Structural Engineers may require a French Drain or a Surface Drain to be installed to solve a Drainage Problem before a home can be sold.

CMG solves drainage problems that allow homes under contract to be sold.  We get calls all the time from frantic realtors who need a Drainage Systems installed in a hurry.   Many times we have installed a Drainage System before  a home could be sold on the scheduled closing date.

In the above picture,  water was standing in the middle of the sidewalk in front of the front step.  We came in  and installed a Channel Drain.  The home in Norman sold on time, making its closing date.

CMG installs French Drains, Surface Drains and Channel Drains.  Many times they are used together in combination to create a complete Drainage System.  We also connect gutter down spouts into our Drainage Systems where possible.

CMG also installs Lawn Sprinkler Systems and provides expert Sprinkler Repair.

Now is a great time to consider a new Lawn Sprinkler Irrigation System by CMG. CMG Sprinklers and Drains installs top of the line Sprinkler Systems that are dependable and last for decades.  Yes, I said decades!  We warranty our sprinklers for two years,  but we build them to last much longer.  We started small in Norman in 1993.  The sprinkler systems installed that year, to my knowledge are functional and going strong.

From time to time CMG Service Experts must work on a sprinkler system that we installed.  Usually it is for reasons beyond our control like, “lightning burning up a sprinkler controller” or,  “a customer running over a sprinkler head with their car.”

CMG designed sprinkler systems are fully automatic and self-draining.  When the sprinklers are not running, the system automatically drains the sprinkler pipes under ground.  If it gets cold there is no water in the sprinkler pipes to freeze.

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

A French Drain can protect your foundation!

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 Drainhas 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 Basin. Storm-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 Gratemay be round or square.  Here is a picture of a common Surface Drain.

A Channel Drainis 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 Pipeor 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 Drain about 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 Systemwith Surface Drainsor 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!

Are you tired of looking at a brown lawn?  Do you spend long  hours  dragging hoses around trying to keep your lawn green. CMG Sprinklers and Drainscan help with the installation of a new Lawn Sprinkler System.   Instead of getting up early to water your yard, you can sleep in.  Let  your new Automatic Lawn Sprinkler System do all the work.

CMG installs all brands of sprinkler equipment, but we preferRain Bird or Hunter products.

Our Sprinkler Systems carry a 2 year warranty on all  parts and labor.

We  also Service and Repair Existing Sprinkler Systems using top of the  line parts. CMGhas been Installing Sprinkler Systems and providing Expert Sprinkler  Repair Since 1993.

CMG Sprinklers and Drains designs and installs Drainage Systems. Water Drainage is a big concern to home owners and small businesses. Standing Water from Storm-Water runoff can cause all kinds of problems.  Concrete in driveways, sidewalks, and foundations can be damaged.  Prolonged Drainage Problemsallow mold to occur along with deterioration to plants, trees, and property.

Another busy day!  Today we installed a Surface Drain Systemin Edmond.  The customer had standing water on the side of his house near the side access door to his garage.  CMG installed a 9 inch Drain Basinwith a green grate.  Two gutters were also connected into the Drainage System. We ran 4 inch ADS Drain Pipe underground to the street. Going under a sidewalk along the way.  The curb was cut and a curb-fitting was cemented in to release the water.  The customer opted for this over placing a “Pop-up emitter” at the curb.  Once this was complete, we went back to Norman to do a Sprinkler Diagnostic and Sprinkler Repair.  It rained on us a couple of times during the day.  That’s better than dealing with 100 plus degree temps.  Its coming soon enough!

If you are tired of spending endless hours dragging hoses around your yard, consider a new Lawn Sprinkler Systemdesigned and installed by CMG Sprinklers and Drains.  We stand behind our Sprinkler Systems and Drainage Systems.  Referrals from satisfied customers are the most important part of our business.

My name is Blane Callen. I have owned and operated CMG Sprinklers and Drainssince 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 18 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.

Sprinkler Systems designed by CMG are SELF DRAINING.  When the Sprinkler System is not running, the Sprinkler Pipes drain underground.  This ensures that the Sprinkler Pipes will not freeze in the winter.

IN-LINE SPRINKLER PIPE DRAIN

CMG Designed Sprinkler Systems are also fully automatic.  Your Sprinkler System can run on its own any time you want, day that you want, or as long as you want.

CMG can also install a Rain/Freeze Sensor that will turn off your Sprinkler Systemif it is too wet or too cold to water and you are not available to turn off the sprinkler system.  ( If your on Vacation for example)  The Rain/Freeze Sensorwill also turn the Sprinkler Systemback on again when it gets dry enough or warm enough to water again.  PRETTY COOL!

This week we finished a 5 zone Sprinkler System in east Norman near lake Thunderbird.  Next, we head to Edmond to install an Irrigation System in Edmond off of Danforth.

Hard rain in Oklahoma is common.  Many homes and businesses have drainage problems Standing water from storm water runoffcan cause damage to grass, trees and shrubs, not to mention foundations, sidewalks and driveways. CMG can design and install a drainage system that may be complex using several types of drains, or basic using just a French Drain or a Surface Drain.  It depends on the customer’s needs.

CMG utilizes:  French Drains, Surface Drains, Channel Drains, Trench Drains, Basin Drains, Basement Drains, and Sump Pumps.

CMG services Central Oklahoma, including: Oklahoma City, Norman, Moore, Midwest City, Del City, Edmond, Mustang, Yukon, Purcell, Blanchard, Newcastle, and all surrounding areas.

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

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!
