Teaching Intelligent Water Solutions

As a collective group, the executive employees at Southern Irrigation have over 200 years of irrigation experience. They share this wealth of knowledge with the rest of the team through hands-on installation training, tailored irrigation courses, and constant emails with valuable tips and tricks.

For example, this week Marc Jongerden, who has 20 years of experience, took the Lethbridge sales team for a field trip to learn about residential sprinkler install. Though they already had a finalized plan, Marc taught the team the entire design process from scratch – walking them through the necessary considerations when designing a successful residential irrigation system. This training gave them practical insight into what our contractors do and see, what issues they possibly have to deal with, and how to serve them better.

For this project, they used Hunter Pro-Spray bodies with 1000/2000 MP-rotators, hunter swing joints, PE poly, a hunter controller and an assortment of barb fittings. They laid out the system and began to install it using a vibratory plow for minimal disruption of the lawn. Then they installed all the valves and valve boxes, sprinklers and swing joints. After installation, the system was flushed with water to remove debris, and the MP rotator heads were installed and set for the correct distance and direction. The whole team took part in all aspects of this training from start to finish, with the sprinklers fully operational in the end.

Teaching Professionalism

Southern Irrigation encourages and enables its employees to pursue knowledge and take courses that will allow them to excel in the workplace. One example is the Dale Carnegie course. Southern Irrigation offers a fully paid Dale-Carnegie course every year to interested employees. This well-known course teaches how to clearly and confidently communicate to better connect with our customers.
