Depending on where and how your sprinklers are set up it may be common to have them break down. Especially your sprinkler heads. If you have soccer-playing kids your sprinklers heads could be on the receiving end of a mean right kick. Sprinkler head issues are very common in residential areas. Other than that, we also see timer problems, clogged pipelines, and other things that could present problems. We are going to walk you through how we spot these problems and what we are generally going to do to solve them.
Water Pressure Issues
Some of the more common problems that we see have to do with part of the system or all of it not spraying enough water. That could be a fault with the way that it is configured to run. It can also be an issue with your water supply. It can be a problem with the pipeline that is running from your water supply to the sprinkler heads. This is something that we are going to be able to figure out pretty quickly. Just by checking the water pressure on each of the outlets. We are not necessarily going to have to tear up your yard to find a solution.
Sprinkler Head Replacement
When you set up sprinklers on a sports field, golf course, or even in your own yard and you have pets or kids sprinkler heads can break due to simple everyday issues that can occur. When you have this happen especially if you have kids or pets at home, we advise most people to still stick with softer sprinkler heads. One could think that installing hard metal sprinkler heads can be a solution so they won’t break. The problem is if you have your kids playing in the yard and they trip or accidentally kick one of these sprinkler heads it’s better to have a broken sprinkler than a broken foot. It really depends on your particular usage and needs. We can do everything to keep you safe!
Really the best way to make sure that your sprinkler is going to last a long time is if you keep an eye on it yourself from time to time. For example, broken sprinkler heads or broken spring systems within the sprinklers are easy to spot. Just look at the one sprinkler that is not doing what it’s supposed to. Our maintenance services are usually geared towards checking that the water pressure is ok. Once we find a broken sprinkler head, that could have been causing trouble to your lawn for months maybe!
When You May Need A Full System Replacement
Some people never fully overhaul their sprinkler system at once. They just update piece by piece until they look up and none of the pieces that are in place were part of the original set up. So, a full overhaul is more likely to occur when you have a system that was not designed well from the start. The typical ones that water the sidewalks and not the grass.
