Sprinkler Meter: Turn On and Off Information

Seasonal Turn On and Off Reminder for Sprinkler Meter Customers

While some customers prefer to leave their sprinkler system turned on year round, others prefer to turn off in the Fall and back on again in the Spring as follows:

Spring turn on:

If you turn on your sprinkler meter for the lawn-and-garden season, call our Customer Service Center at 501. 372.5161, select Option 6 to let us know. Because you turned on the meter and we did not need to send out a Field Service Representative, your account re-activation fee will be only $5.00 instead of the normal $15.00.

You also have the option of having a Field Service Representative turn on the sprinkler meter for the normal $15.00 turn on/re-activation fee. Your “backflow” device must be in place before we can turn on your sprinkler meter.

It is also a good idea to check your lawn irrigation system each spring before use to make sure it was not damaged by winter freezing and to ensure the spraying pattern allows adequate landscape coverage without wasting water.

Fall turn off:

If you turned off your sprinkler meter for the winter months, call our Customer Service Center at 501. 372.5161 and select Option 6 to let us know. There is no de-activation charge.

You also have the option of having a Field Service Representative turn off the meter at no charge.

De-activating your sprinkler meter when not in use, will suspend the minimum monthly fee on the sprinkler meter.

It is also a good idea to cover or remove your “backflow” device to prevent freeze damage.
