Yes, the first thing you will want to do if your sprinklers are not working properly is to clean the sprinkler heads to make sure you don’t face a clogging issue from dirt and other ground residues.
A small leak in a lawn sprinkler system causes problems. A leak can lead to over-watering in some areas of the lawn and under-watering in others, as well as an increase in your water bills.
To prevent such issues, regularly monitor the water flow throughout the sprinkler system to see if it maintains consistent pressure and equal water distribution.
Take immediate action in case of a leak or any noticeable wet patches on your lawn. When in doubt, do not hesitate to contact an irrigation specialist. Like a plumbing issue, a leak in your water sprinkler system can sometimes escalate quickly.
In most cases, issues you encounter with your sprinkler system will stem from damaged components, typically requiring repair or replacement. Keep an eye out for the following tell-tale signs of such components.
Several components in a lawn irrigation system are prone to breaking down, including:
- Sprinkler heads can be damaged due to lawnmowers, harsh weather conditions, or accidental impacts.
- Valves: Valves can malfunction due to age, debris buildup, or damage.
- Pipes: Pipes can crack or burst due to extreme weather conditions, tree roots, or corrosion.
- Controllers: They can be damaged due to power surges or lightning strikes.
- Backflow preventer: It can fail due to wear and tear debris buildup or damage.
Proper maintenance, regular inspections, and timely repairs can help prevent breakdowns and ensure the longevity of your lawn irrigation system.
Often, the job of fixing an underground irrigation system leak or breakdown is best handled by a local lawn irrigation company.
To fix an inground breakdown, we start by locating the leak by checking for water escaping or low flow in sprinkler heads. Then we dig up and expose the damaged section of the pipe, remove the damaged pipe or other parts, and replace them. If it is a faulty pipe, for example, we will repair it with a slip coupling. Then we fill in the soil around the repaired pipe, and the repair is complete.
It’s important to repair faulty pipes in your sprinkler system as soon as you suspect an issue.
Pipes must be kept in good condition. They are necessary for effective and efficient water flow. You will first notice water pressure issues when pipes become damaged due to normal wear and tear or accidents like a pipe burst, fallen trees, or root damage.
If you notice inconsistencies in water flow throughout the heads on your lawn, and if the valves and other components appear to be in good condition, the pipes may be the problem. Have a professional irrigation company out to check your pipes. Again like a plumbing issue, most lawn irrigation repairs do not lend themselves to a DIY solution.
