1. Inspect the system to make sure all components are in good condition. Check for any breaks or leaks in pipes, sprinkler heads, and other parts of the system.
2. Turn on the water supply and make sure the pressure is adequate enough to ensure proper coverage.
3. Activate the irrigation valves, clock or timer, and start up line by line if necessary.
4. Test each sprinkler head to make sure it is angled properly and is covering a wide enough area.
5. Adjust the run time on the clock or timer to allow for the right irrigation intervals throughout the growing season.
6. Set up a watering schedule that fits your needs and climate. Monitor the soil moisture levels regularly to make sure your plants are getting the right amount of water.
7. Make sure to shut off the system after each irrigation cycle is complete and inspect the lines for any problems.
