Can you imagine what it would be like to have to water your lawn with a hose? I’m sure you can think of much better things to do on your Saturdays than that (or multiple days of the week considering your lawn most likely needs to be watered more frequently than that). Sprinkler systems are a modern boon and a huge time saver. Unfortunately, it may take some time for the average home owner to begin noticing that their system needs repair. How often do you just stand there and watch your sprinkler system do its job. Probably not very often especially considering many people set their sprinkler systems to water the lawn at early morning hours in order to allow the water more time to soak into the grass roots and be absorbed rather than evaporated. You might get a hint that your sprinkler system needs to be repaired if certain areas of your lawn are suddenly doing worse than others.
There are quite a number of things that can go wrong with your sprinkler system but our professionals at Sprinkler Repair Pros Boynton Beach have seen it all and can handle any situation without a problem. Let’s take a look at just some of the problems that your sprinkler system may have.
Broken Sprinkler Head
If you’ve noticed that a certain sprinkler head is not popping up as it should it could be broken and needs attention. Alternatively, maybe it does pop up but it’s spraying water everywhere. This is a very common problem if you have had a car or lawn mower run over the sprinkler head. It needs to be replaced in order to fix it and it’s very important that you match the sprinkler head to the right irrigation system. We’ve seen a few home owners in our day make that mistake. It can make the problem even worse!
Low Water Pressure
Have you noticed that one or more of your sprinkler heads aren’t shooting out much water? Or maybe the sprinkler head isn’t popping up but it’s not broken? The issues is low water pressure. The fix for this is more involved than simply replacing a sprinkler head. You’ll need to check out the backflow vales to determine the cause. There may be a clogged pipe or a leak somewhere. It may require some digging around in the yard to find the problem pipe that will need to be excised and replaced with a new one.
An entire sprinkler zone has stopped working
Often this is an issue with the voltage in your irrigation system. Each zone has a valve that’s controlling the sprinkler heads. The wires are the controller may need to be inspected, the circuit breaker should be checked and other various common electrical glitches ruled out. You may even need special electrical equipment in order to investigate this yourself.
Zone valve leaks
If you noticed leaking or flooding in a certain zone of your yard, it can often be due to a torn diaphragm inside the valve. This usually requires a replacement of the diaphragm and/or valve.
Irrigation System Controller Problems
Somewhere in your garage there should be a sprinkler system controller. There are many things that can go wrong with the controlling from very simple things to more serious electrical issues. Many times these problems can be fixed by simply calling the company that supplied you with the controller. There is often a phone number listed on the device. They will walk you through troubleshooting steps for it.
If that doesn’t work though, maybe we can help. We’d be happy to come check out your controller systems wiring to make sure its wired properly. There may be wires pushing against the relay or switch or wires that aren’t attached properly.
We’ve even seen controller that either don’t keep proper time or have stopped keeping time altogether. If that’s the case, we also know the fix. Call us today!
If it is, remove the time dial and check the drive gear. If broken, install a new one and put the time dial back. See if it is now turning freely.
Your controller might also have options to change the precipitation rates. This might be a little over the average home owner’s head but it can make a difference in the appearance of your lawn and the efficiency of your sprinkler system. Our experienced professionals will make sure that each sprinkler’s precipitation rate is matched with similar pressure ratings for other sprinklers in that same zone. This ensures efficient watering in each area of your lawn.
Is your sprinkler putting out too much water? Sounds like it might be a good problem to have but believe us it’s not! This problem can lead to a lot of water waste – meaning a bigger water bill for you – and problems with mold and/or erosion in your yard.
Problems with your valve diaphragm
A common problem with modern automatic irrigation systems is that the valve diaphragm can war out over time. If you notice that it’s not stopping the water’s flow you may need to replace it. It can be a relatively simple fix but it’s always a good idea to have a professional link us at Sprinkler Repair Pros Boynton Beach to check it out and make sure there isn’t a reason that it’s wearing out. If there’s an identifiable reason that the valve is wearing out you may find yourself replacing it again sooner than you’d like to. Call us today for a thorough inspection of your system.
Water not spraying out of the sprinkler nozzle
What about if the sprinkler head is coming out of the ground but water isn’t spraying at all? In that case, you’re likely looking at a clog. The sprinkler head will need to be disassembled and the debris removed if possible. If it’s not possible to remove the debris it may need to be replaced. Taking the sprinkler apart may sound easy but depending on the manufacturer it can be quite the challenge believe us!
