Sprinkler Irrigation Systems — If you are considering an Automatic Sprinkler System for your home or business in 2012, check out an Irrigation System designed by CMG Sprinkler and Drain.  Our Sprinkler Systemsare fully automatic.  The Sprinkler Controller can be placed indoor or outdoor.  One of the most important aspects of our Sprinkler Design is the “SELF-DRAINING FEATURE.”  The Sprinkler Pipes Drain Automaticallyunderground every time the Irrigation System stops running or is turned off.  Older or poorly Designed Sprinkler Systemsmust be WINTERIZED every fall and checked out again every spring.  Homeowners pay Sprinkler  Companiesto maintain this twice-a-year routine as long as they own the Sprinkler System.  A Sprinkler System Designed and Installed by CMG — NEVER HAS TO BE WINTERIZED.  BY THE TIME WINTER COMES THERE IS NO WATER IN THE SPRINKLER PIPESTO FREEZE.  If it gets hot during late winter or early spring and the homeowner wants to run the Sprinkler System, no problem! Just turn the Sprinkler Systemon at the Sprinkler Controller and run it normally.  There is no need to pay a Sprinkler Companyto prepare your Sprinkler System for Winter.  YOUR SPRINKLER IRRIGATION SYSTEMBY CMG IS READY WHEN YOU ARE!

This is a picture of an “IN-LINE-DRAIN“.  Many Sprinkler Contractors don’t take the time or don’t want to spend the extra money to install them.
IN-LINE-DRAINS are a central part to all of our Sprinkler System Installation.
Central Oklahoma is no stranger to heavy thunderstorms and hard rain. Storm-Water Runoff can cause damage to sidewalks, driveways, foundations and all other things made of cement and concrete.  Trees, shrubs, and grass can also become damaged by flooding.   CMG Sprinklers and Drains can design a Drainage System to protect your property from standing water.    Our Drainage Systems can be simple constisting of a French Drainor a Surface Drain, or more complex requiring multiple types of Drains and exit points.

Just what is a “French Drain?”  Many times people incorrectly

use the phrase, “French Drain,”  to apply to many different types of Drains that could be used in a Drainage System.  The term is widely used and many times incorrectly connected to “Surface Drains,” or “Channel Drains.”

A Surface Drainhas a grate that sits on top of a basin.  The basin is underground.  A Drain Pipe is connected underground to an outlet on the Drain BasinStorm-Water Drains through the grate into the Drain Basin.  Once in the Drain Basin, water travels out of the basin through a Drain Pipe.  The Storm-Water continues downhill in an underground Drain Pipe to an exit point.

THIS IS NOT A FRENCH DRAIN!

A Surface Drain may come in many different shapes or sizes.  The Drain Gratemay be round or square.  Here is a picture of a common Surface Drain.

A Channel Drain is a type of Surface Drain and many times is installed in concrete across sidewalks or driveways.

A French Drain is completely different from a Surface Drain.  A basic French Drain consists of a Perforated Drain Pipe in the bottom of a trench.  The Drain Pipe should have a neoprene sock around the Perforated Drain Pipe.   This is to ensure that the Drain Pipe does not become clogged.

The dirt that was taken out to make the trench is hauled away.  It is replaced by some type of small stone or gravel depending on what is desired or available.  I prefer crushed 1 inch lime stone.  It is the most economical option in my area.  Pea Gravel or some other type of small stone can work just as well.    The lime-stone or gravel is placed in the trench on top of the perforated Drain Pipe and filled all the way to the surface (ground level).   In some cases where the French Drain needs to be deep or is being placed in sandy soil, a special trench liner must be placed in the trench before the perforated Drain Pipeor the Gravel are installed.  This helps maintain the integrity of the trench over time.  It also increases the cost of the French Drain and the amount of time to install it.  I install a trench liner in a French Drain about 20% of the time.  Most of the time a liner in not needed.

French Drain March 2011
A French Drain is designed to handle a large volume of water and cover a large area. The Drain is anyplace the trench goes. It has many applications and can be used in many situations.  It can be installed by itself or incorporated into a Drainage Systemwith Surface Drainsor Gutter Down-Spouts connected to it.
The main downfall of a French Drainis that they, for the most part aren’t very pretty.  They don’t look very nice in a yard once they are completed.
Depending on the area the French Drain is installed and the type of grass around the French Drain, will dictate whether grass grows over the lime stone.  Grass can grow up and through the gravel in the French Drainover time eventually covering the gravel.  This is Ok.  It won’t have a measurable effect on the performance of the drain.
DONT COVER THE GRAVEL IN THE FRENCH DRAINWITH DIRT.  THE FRENCH DRAIN WON’T WORK IF THE TRENCH IS CLOGGED WITH DIRT.  DON’T EVEN INSTALL IT IF YOU ARE GOING TO COVER IT UP WITH DIRT.
DECORATIVE STONE CAN BE USED TO COVER A FRENCH DRAIN AND THEY LOOK GREAT AND LAST A LIFETIME.

French Drains Can Look Great!

CMG Sprinklers and Drains can help with:

1.  Sprinkler Controller Problems

2.  Leaking Back-Flow Valves

3.  Leaking Sprinkler Pipes

4.  Shorted or disconnected  Sprinkler valve wires

5.  Sprinkler Zones or Sprinkler Stations that won’t work

6.  Broken Sprinkler Heads

7.  Sprinkler Head Adjustment

CMG Sprinklers and Drains can help if you need to re-design your Sprinkler System.  If for example you are adding a swimming pool in your back yard, we can move the Sprinkler Heads and Sprinkler Pipesto fit the new dimensions of your yard.  We can redesign or add-on to sprinkler systems where the home owners needs change.
