Having a professional repair any issue as soon as it arises will help prevent it from turning into a major problem. Give us a call as soon as you notice any of these common sprinkler problems:
- Low water pressure: Sprinklers aren’t effective if they don’t have enough pressure to actually distribute the water. Low water pressure can be caused by a variety of different things, but it can typically be attributed to a broken seal, a damaged flow rate valve or a compromised line that’s hemorrhaging air. All of these problems can easily be fixed by a sprinkler repair specialist.
- Overspray: Water that sprays over the lawn and onto the driveway or the side of the house is just wasteful. This could be caused by an improperly positioned sprinkler head. A sprinkler repair specialist can examine the location of the sprinklers to determine whether the spray pattern is effective in the current location. Repositioning the sprinkler heads could improve the spray patterns and ensure your lawn is getting a sufficient amount of water.
- Broken or missing nozzles: Over time, sprinkler nozzles can break or even tear off completely during yard work. The water will begin to pour out of the sprinkler and pool next to the location of the missing nozzle. The sprinkler won’t be able to function properly and the excess moisture will cause unwanted weeds and fungus to grow. Simply replacing the nozzle should fix the problem.
- No water: A sprinkler is completely ineffective if it can’t spray water. This is usually caused by a damaged solenoid. The solenoid opens and closes accordingly when the system is turned on or off. Sometimes, it does manage to get stuck somewhere in the middle or in the closed position, which causes the water to flow in unreliable spurts, or to just stop entirely.
- Inconsistent spray pattern: Has your sprinkler gone rogue? Inconsistent spraying patterns usually indicate a problem with the nozzles. Weathering and retraction can cause dirt and small debris to become stuck inside of the nozzles on in-ground sprinklers. Luckily, this can easily be fixed by removing the sprinkler head and removing any debris. If that doesn’t work, it’s time to call our plumbers in Colorado Springs, CO for sprinkler repair.
