Curless Installation

Curless Installation

Due to the wonderful weather we had at the end of the year, we were able to get Becky's system installed. The pictures and video do not quite tell the whole story. The irrigation pump is placed on the South side of a small island so water level is not an issue during a drought season like we just experienced. The water from the lake travels over 500 feet and rises over 40 feet to provide irrigation to the farthest section to the north. The mainline is then concealed by being attached to the underside of the bridge which connects the island to the backyard. From there the water is distributed to the entire backyard.

To get water up to the front yard, 2 lines were underground bored by Geiger Trenchless Solutions on the East side of the house. One line was for the water, and the other was for the field wire that controls the valves. Both of these lines had to rise over 30 feet and also curve around the house to get to the front yard. Great work by Geiger Trenchless to make this happen. There were many established concrete walls and rock on the East side that are now covered with ivy. The underground bore not only saved us days in labor but preserved the beauty of the landscape.

A spigot was installed on upper level of the system in the front yard and another spigot was installed on the lower level in a flower bed near the house. The system is equipped with a MasControl which allows the spigots to be "live." When water from the lake is desired, just open a spigot enjoy the high pressure and volume without the worry of the rust stains that typically comes from using well water. Due to time constraints and the weather, we were forced to winterize the system right after it was checked for proper operation. Better pictures and videos will be taken in the spring of 2013 to show the complexity and quality of installation of the system.
