For any irrigation sprinkler system that has been installed for your Orlando area home or business there should be a focus on the importance of minimal overspray. Overspray is the water from a sprinkler that lands outside the grassy area and forms nuisance water. With summer approaching quickly and unusually high Florida temperatures, now is the time to focus on preventing the irrigation system overspray problem.
Overspray can damage pavement, contribute to stormwater pollution and cause a variety of other problems. Constant running water is a common reason for these wet spots and really is a waste of a valuable resource. It is important to keep sprinkler heads far enough from the sidewalk, driveway and other pavement so it doesn’t collect and cause problems.
Nuisance water such as standing water, running water in gutters, and wet spots that never seem to dry are an eyesore, yet these are problems we can help solve. These issues can be eliminated or minimized by keeping your irrigation system maintained and adjusting sprinkler timers to follow proper watering schedules.
Poor landscape design can contribute to nuisance water, and is a sign that the water isn’t seeping into the soil. This could be a sign of a malfunctioning sprinkler, overwatering, broken waterlines, or improper landscape design. If these issues aren’t handled immediately, the pavement could become slippery with algae or eventually form potholes.
