Problems You Might Experience With Your Sprinkler System


Installing a sprinkler system in your yard is a great way to have a beautiful lawn, but sprinkler systems can develop problems. What problems can a sprinkler system have, and what should you do about these issues? You can hire a lawn care company to diagnose and fix your system's problems, and here are some issues you might watch for if you have a sprinkler system.

Clogged sprinkler heads

A sprinkler system contains several components, including sprinkler heads. These heads spray water into your yard, but they might develop clogs. When this occurs, the heads might not spray any water. Clogged heads might also cause the devices to spray the water awkwardly. You might be at a higher risk for developing clogs if you have hard water. A lawn care company can fix this problem by cleaning the sprinkler heads or replacing them.

Multiple zones turning on at once

You might also have problems with the zones turning on at the same time. In most cases, companies design sprinkler systems to operate in sections, and they call these zones. If more than one zone comes on at the same time, you might need services to find out why this is happening.

Sprinklers spraying too much water

You might also notice that some lawn areas are getting too much water. This occurs when the sprinklers spray too much water in some areas and not enough in the other areas. Again, a lawn care company can diagnose the cause of this problem and make the appropriate changes.

System not turning on and off properly

Sprinkler systems run based on the controls you set up for the system. If your system isn't turning on and off properly, your system might need some adjustments to the controls. There are times when the controls aren't operating as they should, leaving the system turning on and off inappropriately.

System skipping some areas

The next problem you might encounter is the system skipping some areas in your yard. If certain areas aren't getting any water, there is a problem, and the problem is likely with the controls or sprinkler heads.

Hire a sprinkler repair company

If you have any of these issues or others, you can seek help from a company that offers sprinkler repair services. You can find a company that offers these services by searching for a lawn care company in your city to hire.
