It's that time of year again. Colder weather is approaching and once again it is time to protect your Irrigation System from freeze damage. Failure to correctly "winterize" your irrigation system could result in almost $400 in damages just to the backflow alone! But, fear not, for $75 ($85 if you do not prepay either online or by mailing a check in advance) our expertly trained technician will come out to your home and "winterize" your system.
Got water drainage problems? If so, give us a call, we may be able to help. We specalize in all things outside water. We can install drain lines to get water away from your home. With all this rain we have been having, it seems like everyone could use a good drainage system. This helps prevent foundation problems and standing water can be a breeding ground for those pesky mosquitos. We have equipment for any type of situation from shovels to mini skid steers/trenchers to a full blown backhoe.
Check out the new page on Backflow Prevention and Testing. Are you having your backflow tested? If not you could be putting you and your family as well as your neighbors around you at risk.

CMUD has released forms to enroll customers with a separate irrigation meter and a smart irrigation system to now save money on their water bills by capping their usage rate in the tier at Tier 3. Your irrigation system will have to be audited each year along with a backflow test to stay in the program. Your system must be audited by a NC Licensed Irrigation Contractor and backflow tested by a CMUD Certified Backflow Tester. Fill out the application below prior to the initial audit. We can submit the paperwork for you if you would like when we submit the annual backflow test. We can also assist in completing the application.
July is Smart Irrigation Month. Anybody can afford some flavor of Smart Technology. Reitzel Irrigation offers many packages that feature water savings technologies. Also if you live of North Carolina, as most of our customers do, all new installations performed by Licensed Irrigation Contractors are required to have some type of rain sensor that is capable of suspending watering when it is raining or has just rained.
All basic irrigation packages installed by Reitzel Irrigation will now include either a Wired or Wireless RainBird Rain Sensor. Our Smart Irrigation packages surpass this requirement with fully automatic watering and its own weather station that will even tell you the temperature.
Our Smart Irrigation packages can be either all inclusive or selective, depending on your price range. The all-inclusive option includes the RainBird ESP-SMT Controller and Pressure Compensated and Check Valve equipped spray/rotor heads. This can be customized to only include the controller or to only include the heads. For maximum water efficiency and coverage, we recommend the installation of both the Controller and Heads.
