Underground Irrigation Systems
uses the finest quality products available. Over the years we
have learned which products offer the highest quality and
longest trouble free operation.
- UIS uses irrigation rated polypipe as is the standard
for most residential and commercial
properties in the Atlantic Provinces. Polypipe is easy to work
with. It is also forgiving as far as expansion if not all of the
water was expelled during the winterization process.
We use a vibrating plow to "pull" pipe into the ground between 6
and 12 inches deep, while causing minimal lawn disturbance. We
use mostly 1" pipe which ensures peak performance and will not
suffer due to flow restrictions which sometimes occurs with
smaller diameter piping.
– We mostly use the
Hunter high-end commercial sprinkler heads. For a rotor, we
install the “I-20 Ultra” and we are now using the institutional
sprayhead “Inst-04”. Hunter provides excellent
in precipitation coverage and we offer a five year warranty
on most of the product that we install. We have found cleaning
and maintenance to be
eliminated with the use of these higher end sprinklers.
- Underground Irrigation Systems uses the PGV
valve for most residential
and small commercial projects and the ICV valve where we are
dealing with higher volumes of water flow. We also install 18
gauge "direct burial" wire to achieve long term serviceability
along with watertight connections.
Controllers and Rain Sensors
– We install
Hunter PRO-C and ICC expandable professional and commercial
controllers. These controllers provide the versatility to manage
with the simple addition of modules. We install rain sensors on
