Sprinkler Repair is needed even with correctly designed sprinkler systems. Most problems can be noted and resolved during regular maintenance. Routine flushing and cleaning, especially on sprinkler heads and
filters, will take care of most problems before any serious damage occurs.
Sprinker Repair - the most common issue is leaking . They can go unnoticed for long periods of time, and sometimes the only sign of a minor leak is that the system operates less efficiently over time. Water buildup saturating the ground is a sign that the minor leak has become a more serious problem. Regular inspection of sprinkler heads will prevent most sprinkler repair needs. Make sure nozzles and heads are free of debris and replace any that are damaged or worn out. A clogged sprinkler nozzle may be missing the sprinkler filter. Day-to-day use can cause sprinklers to leak, clog, jam, or spray improperly. They can also become damaged by lawn mowers and cars, even grass roots clog the nozzles. Faulty sprinkler heads can waste water, so it is important to get them repaired or replaced quickly.
Soil often builds up, especially in turf areas, blocking heads more and more until they no longer water efficiently. If this happens, simply dig around the head to clear away the accumulated soil. A lawn can gain several inches in height due to the accumulation of thatch. Replacing the riser with a longer one or adding a riser extension can help solve the problem.
Winterizing your sprinkler system is imperative if you live in a cold-weather climate. Draining the water from the system prior to the first freeze will prevent frozen water from bursting the pipes. The best way to remove water from the system is to blow compressed air through it. This is usually best left to a professional.
