Irrigation by Larry Owens
In mid August, my F & W shallow well 2 HP irrigation pump quit working. I called F & W and they referred me to Irrigation by Larry Owens in Apopka. Larry and his son came out to check the motor which was giving erratic electric power readings.My choice was to rebuild the pump or replace it at a cost close to $800.Larry took the pump motor to a third party to be checked. Bottom line, the pump was fine, there was a short in the electric power line running to the pump. Thanks to Larry Owens for his honesty and thoroughness, my pump was up and running for a little more that $100. I am an older woman on a fixed income and can really appreciate a professional like Larry.J. McDanielCasselberry, FL
Tips & Advices
The local climate’s heat and humidity affects evaporation rates, and this helps determine the best irrigation options. For example, sprinkler irrigation in a high-heat / high-sun environments lose more water to evaporation than drip irrigation. When choosing an irrigation system, also consider soil type and topography.
Drip irrigation uses 20 percent – 50 percent  less water than traditional sprinkler systems, which conserves water and saves money. It reduces weeds, soil erosion, and fertilizer run-off. Drip systems work well with irregularly or hilly landscapes. Because it waters the plants evenly and efficiently and reduces water contact with leaves, it also reduces the risk of plant disease or fungus.
Drip irrigation uses tubing to “drip” water slowly and directly to the soil surface, roots or bases of plants. This low-pressure, low-volume system can use drips, sprays, or streams to keep roots moist but not soaked. The tubes can be located above ground, where they are visible, or “subsurface,” which reduces evaporation even further.
Yes. All irrigation systems are made up of component parts that need maintenance and eventual replacement. Professional maintenance in the spring and fall will keep the system in its best working order.
Most professionally installed irrigation systems can be installed in one or two days, depending on the size and complexity of the job. Do-it-yourself installations could take longer.
