Sprinkler System Repair
Take Care of Your Sprinkler System Repair and It Will Take Care of Your Yard
Growing plants need water. Whether they grow in the Olympic Rain Forest or in the arid Valley of the Sun, without water, they don’t survive, to say nothing of thriving. The difference between the two locations, though, is that the later place does not have more water than it needs: in fact, with population growth into the future, there is already not enough water to go around, and the shortage promises only to increase.
Responsible property owners take steps to keep water use under control – ensuring that they don’t use too much or allow waste. This highlights the need to maintain the sprinkler system so that leakage or errant spray does not send water where it does no good. Most homes, especially newer homes, use automatic irrigation systems to provide minimal maintenance, but all irrigation systems require routine maintenance and sprinkler system repair to correct and damage or failure of the components.
Only regular maintenance and prompt sprinkler system repair prevents loss of or damage to landscaping and wasted water. The wise home owner looks at the landscaping situation on a regular basis and knows that dry areas in a lawn might indicate a broken sprinkler head or an underground break in the pipe resulting in a loss of pressure. These problems are not resolved by just setting the timer to longer run times. If a break or a clog means the spray cannot reach its assigned area, shooting the reduced flow longer is just wasteful.
A lot of irrigation system problems can be fixed easily, but only if they are addressed. This underscores the need to inspect the system on a regular basis, both while the system is idle but also while it is operating. Things you would look for include:
- Clogged sprinklers
- Leaking sprinklers and valves
- Obstructed sprinklers
- Overspray onto sidewalks, streets or buildings
- Design problems
- Missing nozzles
- Pipe leaks or breaks
While you might be able to handle some of these fixes yourself, others will require the help of a sprinkler contractor. Sprinkler system repair need not be difficult, baffling or annoying for you.
