Maintenance & Services

A fouled system must be cleaned before any preventative maintenance can begin.  All organic and/or inorganic deposits must be removed throughout the irrigation system during the remediation process.  

This critical first step will improve system efficiency immediately, preparing the platform for a successful preventative maintenance program and maximize crop yields.

Irrigation line treatment for fouled systems can include a shock cleaning specifically designed to removed entrenched contaminates.  There are many types of system fouling that can occur:

  • Mineral scaling and buildup – calcium, bicarbonate, iron and manganese
  • Biological fouling and buildup – bacteria, algae, etc.

Follow Up Maintenance Program

Once the remediation treatment has proven successful, it is recommended to continue with a maintenance program to manage risks for further system fouling. Our maintenance solutions are based on water type/source and the associated plugging/fouling risk.
Treatments are low dose and run by continuously dosing the solution to modify the water chemistry to keep the system running at peak performance. Our maintenance solutions for the following water conditions are below.
Typical Micro-Irrigation System Issues:
  • Algae, bacteria growth in micro-irrigation systems
  • Mineral scale and calcium buildup, plugging from iron and manganese
  • Algae, bacteria growth in ponds and reservoirs

Distribution Uniformity

Distribution Uniformity (DU) measures how evenly irrigation water, and in many instances, chemicals are applied through an irrigation system onto a field.

While a DU of 1.00 would be ideal, economic considerations make this unattainable. A target DU of > .92 on a drip irrigation system is accepted as an excellent design.

While many irrigation systems are designed with a DU above .90, most systems operating for even short periods will typically see their DU numbers drop below .80. A main factor causing a dramatic reduction can be emission device plugging.

A DU below .75 directly leads to more water and chemical use and could result in a lesser crop.

Our services keep you at the high end of distribution uniformity.
