Irrigation Season 2015
Posted on Apr 1st, 2015

Irrigation season begins on April 14th. Remember- irrigation systems NEED REGULAR MAINTENANCE like cleaning out the valves and filter. It is each single-family Homeowner’s responsibility to make sure his/her personal system is in compliance with Community standards. This means making sure your system is running by the timer and not manually (make sure the electric valves in the valve box in your yard are shut off so that the timer in your garage runs your system when set properly), making sure your heads are not broken and wasting water, that you are only running one zone at a time during the hour of scheduled watering and that you are utilizing only 10 gallons of water per minute (600 gallons in the hour of watering time allotted).  This is also a smart time to change or check your battery in your timer. Even though the clock is plugged in, any power loss or surge will cause you to lose all your programming if you do not have a working battery in for back-up. Irrigation inspections will be performed regularly to alert homeowners that are out of compliance.  ***Throughout the season, if you are experiencing difficulties with your irrigation system and plan to schedule an appointment to have an outside irrigation contractor of your choice evaluate your system (or perform maintenance yourself), you will need to complete the Irrigation Activation Form in order to get access to irrigation water outside your regular watering schedule. This form will serve as notification to the HOA’s irrigation manager to pressurize your irrigation zone during your scheduled appointment with your contractor (or yourself). The form can be found on the community website under the Irrigation tab. You do not need to hire the same contractor the HOA uses. Any skilled irrigation contractor can work on your irrigation system on your property. The only difference with this community, is that your availability to irrigate your yard is on an HOA specified schedule- otherwise your system works the same way as if you owned a home where you used your own city water to irrigate. Activations will only be accepted after the season has begun (after 4/15). For additional reference, the General Irrigation Information page (on the website too) will provide further details to you and you contractor.
***On that note, we would like to announce that Coleman Burnett Inc. (CBI-our landscape contractor) now also has the contract to service and maintain the Moss Creek irrigation system (the common elements of the system). We feel confident that they will be able to provide the HOA a high level of service and attention. They are on a 25 hour a week schedule with the HOA. **As a reminder, the HOA’s responsibility to maintain irrigation stops at the ball valve at the curb of each single-family home (where your personal system taps the submain line).  CBI will not cross into your yard to maintain any part of your personal irrigation system. They will also be making upgrades to the phase 1 irrigation control system that are long due. While any new irrigation contractor may have some learning curve in the intricacies of our utopian-ly designed irrigation system, we look forward to CBI’s dedication and organization to bring us a great irrigation season!

~ Irrigation Updates~

Irrigation is far and away the most frequent concern our residents voice to the management company.  Moss Creek's is an extremely complex irrigation system, and when a part of it malfunctions it is critical that Kuester is informed quickly. 
Remember, the HOA is only responsible for getting water to your curb.  Anything beyond the curb, including timers, sprinkler heads, etc. is the responsibility of the homeowner (excluding Townhome Owners).  The Irrigation Manager’s focus is on the maintenance of the common areas and making sure the system is running properly during the scheduled times and the common grounds are being watered appropriately.
Proper timer programming is crucial to the functionality of the system and it is your responsibility to make sure your timers are set correctly. The clock/timer that you have in your garage is intended to facilitate the opening of your irrigation system on your Lot to the sub main during the specified hour that the timer is set for. This time should coincide with the time that the irrigation zone you live in runs.  First, make sure your timer is set properly and it still has its programming. If you are unsure about how to program your timer, check the owner's manual or consult with an independent landscaper. Many timer instruction manuals are available online.
Then, find your valve box in your yard that houses the electric valves that man your individual zones on your Lot.  There will be one valve per zone in your yard. Make sure that these electric valves are all turned off. You may have your clock set, but with these valves turned in the ON position, the clock is being bypassed and not operating according to its purpose. To turn your system from manual setting to clock function, you must turn off the irrigation valves in the valve box in your yard. If the valves will not turn any further to the right, they may need to be unscrewed and rinsed out. Dirt and mulch can get inside the workings and cause them to stick open (thus allowing your system to come on anytime during the day the HOA pressurizes the sub mains at the street). Being that Moss Creek’s irrigation system uses ‘dirty’ water or unfiltered well water instead of city water, there is regular system maintenance that is required to keep your system working properly- cleaning your filter and valves. You should do this at least once or twice a season. In addition, you must make sure that your system only operates one zone in your yard at a time during the hour of scheduled irrigation. The main system is designed to provide a total of 600 gallons of water to each lawn, spread over a one-hour time frame For example, if your irrigation system has 4 zones, you will need to set your clock to run each separately -for say 15 minutes each. A good tip is to water side yard zones for less time and rotor zones longer and not to waste too much of your hour on any drip zones.  Broken heads are also a cause of much water waste. Please make sure that all of your heads are in working order. A broken head can waste as many as 25 gallons per minute!
Over-watering your lawn is not only wasteful, but it can lead to diseased turf and growth of fungi.  The system is equipped with turf-saturation sensors or rain sensors which will prevent the irrigation from being activated if the ground is saturated to a certain point. A ½ an inch of rain or more activates the system’s rain sensors. Do not over-compensate for a missed irrigation cycle by running multiple zones at once. This abuse of the system could cause you to lose your watering privileges or pay a fine.
The irrigation main lines and sub-mains are not usually presurized during the daytime. To test or work on your system during business hours OR TO FLAG YOU IRRIGATION HEADS FOR AERATION, fill out the Irrigation Activation Request form on this website under the Irrigation tab. Note:  Irrigation inspections will be done each season. Every Homeowner must have their system running according to the Moss Creek  Please see Irrigation Resolution under the Irrigation tab. Irrigation Map and run times are also linked under the Irrigation tab on this homepage.
The irrigation season will end at the end of October- or as weather permits.
