Lawn Irrigation Systems require maintenance from time to time. All types of Sprinkler Repair become necessary. Sprinkler heads break for several reasons. Dogs chew up Sprinkler Heads. Tree roots twist and break Sprinkler heads. Cars run over and break Sprinkler Heads. Weed Eaters cut the tops off Sprinkler Heads. If you have a Sprinkler Head that is not performing perfectly, CMG can help.
Sprinkler Valves can have trouble too. The Sprinkler Valve Wiring becomes disconnected or shorts out. Tree Roots can stretch or break the Sprinkler Wires. Sprinkler Valves can start leaking over time. CMG can solve Sprinkler Valve problems of all types.

French Drain Installation — French Drains are designed to do a lot of things. If you have an area that has unwanted water standing in it or running across it, a French Drain can be the answer. A French Drain is a trench that runs across the Drainage Problem Area. A French Drain Pipe is placed in the bottom of the trench. The French Drain Pipe is perforated with thousands of small holes. In most cases the Drain Pipe has a nylon soc around the pipe to act as a filter for the French Drain. The French Drain trench is then filled with some type of small rock or stone. CMG typically uses crushed 1 inch Lime Stone to cover the French Drain Pipe. The dirt that was dug out of the trench is taken away or spread out around the French Drain. The Lime Stone replaces the dirt and fills the French Drain Trench all the way to the surface.
When water come in contact with the French Drain, it seeps down through the stones and into the French Drain Pipe. It then flows through the Drain Pipe to the exit point. Typically a French Drain will have two possible exit points. The First is called a “Pop-Up Emitter.” It is a Green Lid on top of a release basin for the French Drain.
The second type of Exit Point for a French Drain is a “Curb Fitting.” The Curb Fitting is installed through the curb going out into the street. The French Drain Pipe runs to the Curb. The curb is cut out and the Curb Fitting is cemented through the Curb.
French Drains are designed to move large amounts of water. A French Drain moves water away from the Drainage Problem area from the Surface like a large Surface Drain, But also below ground, or sub surface. Most people don’t take into account the water that flows to a problem area underground. Sub surface water flow is not eliminated by a Surface Drain. A French Drain can move away water that is below the surface of the ground and drain away water that is on the surface.
CMG Sprinklers and Drains designs and installs Drainage Systems. Water Drainage is a big concern to home owners and small businesses. Standing Water from Storm-Water runoff can cause all kinds of problems. Concrete in driveways, sidewalks, and foundations can be damaged. Prolonged Drainage Problems allow mold to occur along with deterioration to plants, trees, and property.
CMG Sprinklers and Drains designs Drainage Systems to deal with Water Drainage problems. We provide Free Estimates for all of Central Oklahoma. CMG utilizes: French Drains, Trench Drains, Surface Drains, Channel Drains, Basin Drains, and Sump Pumps. Drains can be simple using one type of Drain, or complex using several types of Drains.

Two things you should require on any Sprinkler System:
1. Make shure PRIMER is used along with PVC Glue when the Sprinkler Pipe is put together. Primer helps the glue to bond to the PVC pipe. This ensures that all the pressurized pipe connections won’t leak over time. I have seen Sprinkler Systems that were no more than a year old that leaked everywhere. Again some Sprinkler Contractors will cut corners with the Primer.
2. Make shure the connection for the Sprinkler System at the water meter is done with a, “compression T.” This ensures that no leaks will occur over time at this connection. The Sprinkler Connection at the water meter is highly stressed every time the Sprinkler System is turned on. A connection with Glue and Primer will not hold up to the stress over time. This is why a Compression T must be used. This is another area that some Sprinkler Contractors choose to cut corners.
I usually don’t take money up front for Sprinkler Installation, Sprinkler Repair, or French 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.

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.
CMG Sprinklers and Drains started 2015 with a Sprinkler System installation in South Oklahoma City. The home owner had well water for the Sprinkler System. The Well-Pump was a 1 and a half horse Well-Pump. This size Pump is very good for Sprinkler Systems. It is not too big and not too small. CMG can install Sprinkler Systems with Pumps as small as 3/4 horse. We also install Sprinkler Systems connected to any standard residential water meter up to two inch.
When connecting to the Well-Pump, we installed a Back-Flow Valve and a Master Valve. The Back-Flow valve ensures that water can only flow from the Well to the Sprinkler System. It can’t flow from the Sprinkler System to the well. This ensures that the Well Water will stay safe and pure.
Next, we installed a Master Valve. A Master Valve is always a “Must” for any Sprinkler System. A Master Valve allows a Sprinkler System to: 1. Drain Automatically Under Ground. 2. Makes sure there are no pressurized Sprinkler Pipes EXCEPT WHEN THE SPRINKLER SYSTEM IS RUNNING. 3. Provides a “Fail-Safe” for the customer if something goes wrong with the Sprinkler System. If you have water shooting up in the air or have a leak of any kind all you do is turn the Sprinkler Controller to, “OFF”, and it will stop. If it was installed by CMG, then you call us. A Master Valve ensures that you will not have water running down the hill while you are waiting for service. Also, THE WATER GOING TO YOUR HOUSE WILL NOT BE AFFECTED IF THERE IS A PROBLEM WITH YOUR SPRINKLER SYSTEM. EVERYTHING INSIDE YOUR HOME WILL WORK PERFECTLY. ( WASHER, DISHWASHER SINK, etc.)
CMG also installs Drainage Systems, and provides expert Sprinkler Repair. If you live in Edmond and need a French Drain, Or if you live in Norman and are having trouble with your Sprinkler System Controller, or if you live in Yukon and need a Surface Drain, Give CMG a Call.

These two types of Sprinkler Heads should not be in the same Sprinkler Zone Together. The reason is that they water at different rates. The Pop-Up Sprinkler Head is a Continuous Spray Head. It does not move or rotate. It covers a small area and puts a lot of water down fast. The Rotor Sprinkler Heads cover a much larger area and spray back and forth from left to right. They take a greater amount of time to completely water their designed area. If Pop-Ups and Rotor Sprinkler Heads are put in the same zone together and run at the same time, by the time the Rotor Sprinkler Heads are finished, the area covered by the Pop-Up Sprinkler Heads will be Flooded. This can kill whatever the Pop-Up Sprinkler Head is intended to water.
IT IS A BIG MISTAKE!
