Two Common Sprinkler Repair Problems
Problem: Sprinkler Heads Not Working
Your irrigation system tried to turn on as scheduled (or you manually turned it on) only to find your sprinkler heads aren’t shooting water out. Awesome. Now what? Depending on your problem, there are two common solutions:
Solution 1: Clean and Reset the Sprinkler Heads
You could be dealing with a bit of a clog problem that a little cleaning and resetting will fix. You should take apart the sprinkler head and clean it with water. Put it back together and put it back into place. If it’s still not working, you may need to replace the entire sprinkler head.
Solution 2: Replace the Sprinkler Head
If your sprinkler head needs to be replaced, you’ll need to dig it up to access the riser. Unscrew the broken sprinkler head and install the new hand, making sure it’s hand-tightened.
While both solutions aren’t difficult, you do need to be careful of underground utilities and the sprinkler lines and spray heads. If you aren’t comfortable or confident to take this on, give our team a call today.
Problem: Low Water Pressure
Instead of being a glorious, powerful spray of water, your sprinkler system has a sad flow that barely extends a foot, or worse, your sprinkler heads aren’t even coming out of the ground. Low water pressure may be your problem here, and in most cases, you’ll need to call in the professionals.
Solution 1: Check the Backflow Device
Go to your backflow device and make sure the valves are open. First, turn the valve on the horizontal pipe and then turn the valve on the vertical pipe. You can be sure the valves are open when the handles are parallel with the pipes. If this doesn’t fix the problem, give us a call.
Solution 2: Call the Professionals
Calling us is solution two because you need to figure out what’s causing your low water pressure and that usually requires knowledge and experience that people outside of the sprinkler industry don’t have. First, we will locate any leaks in your sprinkler system and repair them. this usually fixes the low water problem.
If we don’t find any leaks or fixing the leaks doesn’t return normal water flow, we will look for possible crushed pipes. In some cases, tree roots can grow and squeeze a pipe until it crushes. This won’t always cause a leak, but it will stop the flow of water. If this is the problem, we will replace the crushed pipe with a new section and your system will be back in working order.
If you have one of the problems above, or any problem other than the most common two problems listed here, contact us today.
