Drip System Repair
With drip systems, we don’t tend to see the same types of problems that we see with sprinklers. There is a reason for this, drip systems are usually not set up in heavy foot traffic areas. So the problems that we see come more from within. The clogged pipeline issue or lack of water pressure are things that are still present. As with any type of equipment, age does come into play. Although, you can probably see very old irrigation systems still in place when you have a very specific drip system that is designed to emit a calculated amount of water things can get a bit more difficult quickly.
What Are The Common Issues That We See?
Most people, especially with drip systems that they use for agricultural purposes, want a quick fix. We get it you need to water the crops if you want them to grow. The main issues that we see are obstructions in the pipeline system heads with calcium deposits similar to what you can see in a showerhead. This really depends on the model of the system and how it works. Some of these issues are actually not that hard to deal with. If you have an external water supply issue that is usually the bigger problem.
Prevention Is The Best Way To Repair
Yes, we realize that what we are saying here is a bit contradictory. The best way though to make sure that your system is not going to fail you when you need it most is to keep it clean! We know that this is hard at times. Keep an eye on it though and if you spot even the slightest alteration in the water pressure that it is giving out then make that call to us quickly. Catching that problem early is going to increase our chances of fixing it quickly!
Updating Your Old Timer
Timers are either the first piece that people want us to update or the piece that they never want us to update. Usually, when you buy a property that has a drip system in place you are going to have to get familiar with the system. Analog systems on older equipment have never been user friendly. Yet some people have grown very accustomed to them. They don’t want to go digital because they don’t want to risk that a timer slip or a lack of knowledge ends up meaning that they lost money or ruined crops. If you want to keep the same controls over the system, but make sure it’s running smoothly we can do that. If you want to update to simple controls that, is also in the cards.
Repairs on Most Drip Systems Are Usually Cleaner Than Sprinkler Repairs
Sprinkler repairs at times can get messy. Especially if you have a clogged pipeline, because you are going to need to dig that lineup, there are not too many ways around that. Drip systems can be placed on the ground not under it. This is going to make for shovel-less repairs!
