Routine maintenance is important for your sprinkler system. Regular system checks can keep your system running at optimum performance. In this post we will discuss some of the common issues we look for.
If your sprinkler heads pop up but dribble, sputter, or don’t reach all the areas they are supposed to, you may have a water pressure problem. Low water pressure can have a few causes, such as a cracked pipe, clogged or broken heads, or broken or not fully open valves. These are common issues addressed by regular sprinkler service.
There are signs that you may have a cracked pipe underground. Look for areas of your lawn that are muddy or soggy even when there hasn’t been any rain, or where fungus is growing. A sidewalk or driveway that is constantly wet is another clue. If you hear gurgling, bubbling, or hissing sounds, or your water pressure seems to have changed, a leak is likely to be the culprit. Brown or wilting spots on the lawn may be another sign they may not be getting enough water due to the change in pressure. A cracked pipe may let in soil as well as leaking water, so dirty water coming out of the heads is another sign that you need sprinkler service.
You may have a broken spray head if your sprinkler heads don’t rise, or they rise but spray water where they shouldn’t. If the head doesn’t pop up and there is no water coming out, you may have a clogged sprinkler head. Sprinkler service from Landworks can correct both of these issues.
If your water won’t shut off or there is leaking after you shut it off, you may have a valve problem. It may have a blockage of dirt, stone fragments, or other debris. There could also be an issue with your control unit not closing the valve electronically.
If you notice that your sprinkler is staying on for too long or not long enough, isn’t turning on when it is supposed to, or isn’t operating automatically at all, you may have a faulty controller, or some other wiring problem. Water leaking from multiple zones at once or zones that are skipped entirely are also indications that you need sprinkler service for a possible electrical issue. A static-like buzzing noise from the pump is almost certainly a wiring problem.
