If you are a single-family homeowner (not applicable for townhome owners), you are responsible to maintain your irrigation system on your own lot. Anything in from the curb, including timers, sprinkler heads, etc. is the responsibility of each homeowner. The Association maintains the system from the ball valve at the curb-out including a number of wells, 2 pumps stations, 2 retention ponds, miles of pipeline and hundreds of valves. In light of such an elaborate master system, the irrigation system on your lot works the same way as the personal irrigation systems in any other neighborhood - the only difference is that you receive well water (vs.city) on a specific schedule provided by the Association.
As with any component of a home, it needs regular maintenance. Since we use well water, you need to clean your filter (if you have one) often and your electric valves on a consistent basis. Occasionally, rotors and sprays will need replacing as well. If you are not skilled at doing this yourself, you will need to hire an irrigation contractor. To assist homeowners that frequently ask the question about whom to hire, we are compiling a list of contractors recommended by your neighbors (These contractors are in no means vetted by or have any affiliation with the Association).
