Your Sprinkler System

Benefits of Professional Installed Sprinkler System in
Tampa Bay


A lush, green lawn requires plenty of water.


But even in Florida, where sometimes it seems like we have thunderstorms on a daily basis, you can’t always rely on natural rainfall to provide your lawn with the water it needs to survive and flourish. Even occasionally lugging out a rubber hose to water your lawn by hand is often insufficient.


That’s where a professionally installed sprinkler system from Sunrise Irrigation & Sprinklers comes in. We’ve been installing, maintaining, and repairing irrigation systems for Tampa Bay area clients for more than two decades. Our sprinkler systems can keep your lawn healthy and lush by providing a constant, automated source of water. But that’s not all.

An 8-Step Guide to Installing a Sprinkler System in Tampa Bay


Once you’ve decided to upgrade your property with a sprinkler system, the next step is having it professionally installed. We’ve listed some steps below so that you know what you can expect – and how you can prepare.

Contact our experienced sprinkler installation technicians
Step 1
Contact our experienced
sprinkler installation

While you may be able to purchase a do-it-yourself sprinkler kit, most quality sprinklers require installation from a trained and experienced professional. Installing an advanced sprinkler system is a complicated process that involves excavation and requires knowledge of local Tampa regulations and permit requirements. Only a seasoned and certified sprinkler technician will be able to get the job done right. Our technicians are all licensed and insured, RainBird trained, and make sure to stay up-to-date with the latest irrigation innovations and industry best practices.

Local Tampa Bay Irrigation Permitting Requirements
Step 2
Check out
local permitting

After hiring a sprinkler installation professional, your technician will check with officials of your locality to determine whether you need to obtain a building permit and research your local municipal watering ordinances. If a permit is required, your technician can take care of obtaining and submitting proper documents for you.

Check For Underground Utilities
Step 3
Check for
underground utilities

Before your technician and his team can install your system, they will have to check your property for underground utilities. In order to do so, they may contact your local utilities company to have them visit your property to identify the location of any buried gas, electrical, or telephone lines.

Purchase a Quality Sprinkler System With Proper Components
Step 4
Purchase a quality
sprinkler with proper

Your sprinkler technician will help you choose a highly efficient water sprinkler irrigation system that suits the needs of your unique property. Your technician will evaluate your property’s water pressure, flow rate, meter or well pump size, water service line size, and more to help you purchase the right components.

Map Out Your Sprinkler System
Step 5
Map out your
sprinkler system

After the initial research, your technician will begin mapping out the layout of your sprinkler system. When determining the optimal layout for your system, you must consider elements such as: – Shrubs, trees, and flower beds – Mulched areas – Sidewalks – Fences – Slopes – Sunny and shady areas.

The presence of these elements will help you determine your watering zones. Your technician can design a system that includes multiple watering zones, and is structured so it eliminates dry spots while only watering areas with grass and plant life.

Palm Harbor Sprinkler System Excavation
Step 6

Once your sprinkler system has been purchased and designed, your technician and his team will begin excavating. Using professional tools, our water sprinkler installation team will dig trenches deep enough to allow sprinklers to retract underground and avoid damage.

Step 7

The team will assemble your sprinkler components, including pipes and sprinkler heads, before connecting your sprinkler to the service line. If you live in a municipality that requires backflow prevention, your technicians will set up a backflow prevention mechanism that prevents harmful chemicals from the lawn from entering your water system.

Sprinkler System Controls Set-up
Step 8
Setting up controls

Your sprinkler technician can set up controlling valves for each of your water zones, along with a timer that controls which zone is watered when. Your technician may also add a rain and moisture and a temperature sensor that can detect current water levels and pause service whenever necessary. Your sprinkler specialist can explain how to use these tools in a way that conserves water while ensuring your lawn stays lush and green.
