Skone Irrigation Inc.
We loved working with Alfredo from Skone. After worrying for sometime about a potential leak in our lawn irrigation system, we looked up irrigation companies and found an overwhelming number of businesses in the area. The problem is that many of them didn't seem very professional or knowledgeable when we called to inquire about services. The representative when calling Skone was honest and straight foward about the process. We agreed to move forward with an estimate and diagnosis of our irrigation system. Alfredo came over on time and within 15 mins identified leaking in a few places. He showed me the areas that were a problem and he also made recommendations on heads to replace so that we would maximize our watering to the right areas without flooding our yard. He came back the next day to fix these issues. It only took him an hour. He was a very professional and knowledgeable guy. We will use him again for our future irrigation needs. We didn't like that they charge for drive time.
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.
