Cypress Cay's home irrigation is operated from a central control system. The system is automatic and nothing needs to be done by the homeowner. The central control system is controlled by a timer that turns on a different group of homes. The clock turns the irrigation on and off for each home using a preprogrammed schedule which provides adequate water, while maintaining proper pressure. The day and time of watering varies per household. The system will usually run during the evening and often while you are sleeping. The frequency of watering per week varies with the season and drought conditions. The clocks are programmed and maintained by a contractor hired by our management company. If you feel you are having a problem with your irrigation not coming on at all, or staying on excessively (longer than 10 minutes per watering), please contact our management company. If it is a central controller problem you as a home owner will not be charged. If the problem is with your equipment there will be a charge to you.
To insure a healthy lawn your irrigation system must be properly maintained. Although the homeowner need not worry about the irrigation scheduling they do need to maintain their irrigation heads. Your irrigation heads must be free of grass growth and their filters cleaned periodically. Broken irrigation heads exhibiting geyser like properties need to be replaced. Irrigation heads also need to be positioned at a proper level with regard to the grade of your lawn. They may need to be raised or lowered (more often rasied). You may need to hire someone to periodically do this maintenance. If you are handy and want to give it a try yourself or you just want to know what is involved, click on the following link to view procedures for Irrigation System Maintenance
