Norman, French Drain, Oklahoma City, Sprinkler Systems, Edmond, Yukon –

French Drain Installation is a primary focus for CMG Sprinklers and DrainsAngie’s List has awarded us their Customer Service Award for the State of Oklahoma for top quality French Drain Installation.  Along with the French Drain Customer Service Award, Angie’s List has given CMG their top A+ Rating and placed us at the top of their website for Oklahoma French Drain Installation.

CMG also installs a variety of other types of Drains.  Our Drainage Systems may utilize: French Drains, Surface Drains, Channel Drains, Trench Drains, Basin Drains, and Sump Pumps.  In the past 21 years, we have installed French Drains to keep water away from home and business foundations, Surface Drains to keep water away from sidewalks and driveways,  Trench Drains, and French Drains to keep standing water out of flowerbeds and yards, and Sump Pumps to remove water from basements and outdoor low lying areas.

French Drains can be installed by themselves, or as part of a Drainage System that uses other French Drains, Surface Drains, or other Drain combinations.  Typically a French Drain is used to protect a broad area that has a lot of standing water.  A French Drain might run along side a homes foundation, or beside a driveway, or on any Drainage Project where Sub-Surface water is the primary problem.  If water is running toward your home under ground ( through sandy soil), A French Drain is the only Solution  for draining away water flowing under ground.

 

If you live in Oklahoma City and need a French Drain installed in your yard, or along your driveway, or near your foundation, give CMG a call.  If you live in Edmond or Norman and need a Surface Drain installed in the concrete in your sidewalk or driveway, we can help.  If you live in Mustang or Yukon and would like to protect your trees or flower beds from standing water with a French Drain, CMG specializes in just that!

Hopefully 2012 wont be as hot as 2011.  Record heat for Central Oklahoma caused the death of trees, shrubs, and grass all over the state.  A new Lawn Irrigation System installed by CMG  can help solve these problems.  Sprinkler Systems water much faster and more efficiently than dragging hoses around all day to water your yard.

Our Sprinkler Systems are Self-Draing.   The Sprinkler Pipes Drain underground when the Irrigation System is turned off.   Nothing needs to be done to prepare your Irrigation System for winter except turn it off.  There is no water left in the Sprinkler Pipes to Freeze.

Just like a home or a car, a Sprinkler System requires repair or adjustment from time to time.  We at CMG, take great pride in the Sprinkler Repair Services that we provide.  In almost 18 years of service, CMG has solved virtually every Sprinkler Repair Problem possible.  We solve Sprinkler Repair Problems that other companies can’t handle.  If you live in Oklahoma City and have Broken Sprinkler Heads, or if you live in Normanand have Leaking Sprinkler Valves, or if you live in Edmond and your Sprinkler Controller quit working, give us a call or send us an e-mail. 405 – 226-0629 cmgsprinklers@hotmail.com

Lawn Sprinkler Repair is one of our business focuses.   We can help with:

1. Sprinkler Controller Problems

2. Leaking Back-Flow Valves

3. Leaking Sprinkler Pipes

4.  Shorted or disconnected valve wires

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

6. Broken Sprinkler Heads

The above are the most common problems that we deal with.

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 pipes to fit the new dimensions of your yard. We can redesign or add-on to sprinkler systems where the home owners needs change.

Like our name says, CMG Sprinklers and Drains also installs New Lawn Sprinkler Systems and Drainage Systems for folks who live in Central Oklahoma. If you live in Mustang and would like a French Drain installed or if you live in Norman and need a broken sprinkler head replaced, or if you live in Oklahoma City and desire a new Lawn Sprinkler System, Give CMG Sprinklers and Drains a call or send us an e-mail. 405-226-0629  cmgsprinklers@hotmail.com

For Central Oklahoma Residents who already have a Sprinkler System, I recommend a RAIN/FREEZE SENSOR.  This is a great way to ensure that the sprinkler system gets turned off when there is no one available to turn it off.  If you are away on vacation for example, the RAIN/FREEZE SENSOR will turn off the sprinkler system after a heavy thunderstorm when it is too wet to water.  The RAIN/FREEZE SENSOR will turn the sprinkler system back on when it is dry enough to water again.  It will do the same thing for your sprinkler system it gets too cold or starts to snow.

Do you have water seeping into your floor vents after a hard rain?  Is water causing damage to your floors or carpet?  Is water finding a way under your foundation after a thunder storm?  CMG Sprinklers designs and installs Drainage Systems that can help stop the damage.  We utilize:  French Drains, Surface Drains, Channel Drains, and Sump Pumps to protect property.  Connecting gutter-downspouts into the Drainage System is always a good idea where possible. The need for Drainage Systems is increasing in Oklahoma.  During heavy thunder storms,   homes and business need a way to drain water away Storm water can cause many kinds of damage.  Here are just a few: 1.  Driveways and Sidewalks can crack and deteriorate 2.  Foundations can crack move or shift 3.  Vents and ducts can fill with water 4.  Mold can be allowed to grow 5.  Trees and Plants and grass can be damaged or drown Too much water is never a good thing! CMG can quickly diagnose your Drainage Problem and provide a free quote for a Drainage System.  With twenty years of experience, we realize that Drainage Problems may be very complex and difficult or very straight forward and simple.  Every Drainage Problem is unique to a certain degree.  Don’t kid yourself,  Experience Counts! CMG takes many things into account when providing a Drainage Diagnostic for a Customer.  We determine: 1.  What is the Primary Water Source to the problem?  Where is the water coming from? 2.  Is there a Secondary Water Source?  Other Places that water may be coming from.    All Drainage Problems have more than one source! 3.  How many Subsequent Water Sources are present?   Some complex Drainage Problems have many water sources. 4.  What exit points are available for gravity to move water away from the problem area?  Where are we trying to take the water to, and how is it going to be released?  Is more than one exit point possible to increase capacity? 5   How much water must be moved?  What Size Drain Pipe is necessary to lessen the chance of being overwhelmed by flooding?    This is a tough consideration.  (Larger Pipe – Larger Cost to Install)

These are just a few of the considerations for any Drainage System Diagnostic.

The Drainage System shown in the three above pictures consisted of the following: Three Gutter Downspouts in the front yard were connected to 4 inch ADS solid Drain Pipe with Large Drainage Gutter Connections.  Three lateral 4 inch Pipes were run from each gutter to one outflow pipe moving the water to two exit Pop Up Emitters. One of the Drain Pipes ran under the sidewalk to reach the Exit Drain Pipe. This Drainage System had two exit points.  One Pop-Up Emitter was on the edge of the driveway in the front yard.  The other Pop-Up Emitter was installed in the back yard near the property line.  Two exit points allows for a much larger Water Drainage Capacity.  (During Heavy Rains The Drainage System Can Move More Water Faster) The back yard Exit Pipe then connected to 55 feet of 4 inch French Drain that was installed along the SW corner of the house.  The French Drain provided a protective barrier for that room of the house where water had previously been leaking into the floor vents.  Two Gutter Down Spouts were also connected in the back yard to the Drainage System.

A few days later a heavy rain came in.  No water stood on the sidewalk near the front door, and nor water seeped into the floor vents in the back bedroom. CMG works closely with our customers.    We provide all the information we can to help the customer make a decision that will solve their Drainage Problem. Typically,  Drainage Systems are made up of one or several types of Drains.  CMG utilizes French Drains, Surface Drains and Trench Drains when designing Drainage Systems.    There are many types and sizes of Surface Drains and French Drains.  Again, experience is the key! If you have water standing on your driveway after a hard rain.  If your plants and trees are under water because your neighbor just added new gutters.   If your sidewalk is cracking  because half the time it is under water.  Give CMG a Call!  405-226-0629 CMG Sprinklers and Drains 405-226-0629 Check Out Our Other Sites! cmgsprinklersanddrains.com cmgsprinklersandrains.blogspot.com btnbusinessblog.wordpress.com activerain.com/blanecallen blanecallen.wordpress.com

My name is Blane Callen. I have owned and operated CMG Sprinklers and Drains since 1993.  I take great pride in my work.  The Letters “CMG” stand for the first letter of the first name of each of my children.  ( Chance, Melissa, Garrett )  = CMG

I have amassed a great deal of experience designing and installing sprinkler systemsrepairing sprinkler systems, and designing and installing drainage systems.  Like all things in life, I have made mistakes, but I have learned from them.  As a result I get calls from time to time from other sprinkler system and drainage companies that have run into a problem that they can’t handle.  I am always glad to help.

I usually don’t take money up front for Sprinkler Installation, Sprinkler Repair, or Drain Installation.  I prefer that the customer pay me when the job is complete and they are happy with the work.  In a few cases on very large jobs I request a draw or outlay for parts.  The parts are delivered from my supplier to the address where the job is being done and equal the amount of the draw.  The parts stay on the premises until they are installed.

Please leave a comment or feedback in an email about our website.
