Lately, it seems as if the lawn sprinklers are not providing the coverage they did in times past. Before assuming the system needs to be junked in favor of a new one, call a professional and have it checked. In many cases, all that is needed is a simple Sprinkler Repair Spokane. Here are some examples.
The Sprinkler Heads are Clogged
Clogs in the sprinkler heads can occur for a number of reasons. At times, the problem is nothing but a buildup of sediment that prevents the water from flowing efficiently. At other times, grass clippings and other types of residue can be the underlying reason for the problem. Even the accumulation of minerals from the water may be what is preventing the sprinkler heads from working properly. In all these situations, cleaning the heads will be the only Sprinkler Repair Spokane necessary.
A Broken Water Line
One of the lines connecting a section of heads may sustain damage. This can happen while digging a new flower bed or simply the line material breaking down over time. Typically, there will be a section of the lawn that is saturated at the point of the problem. A professional can determine if a broken line is the problem and manage to replace that section with ease.
The System Will Not Stop
The sprinkler system includes controls that make it possible to program specific start and stop times for watering. Lately, the system will start at the designated time but not shut off when it should. No amount of resetting the controls seems to help. A professional can find out what is causing the flaw and see if the control box can be repaired. If not, installing a new one may be the most cost effective way to get a few more years of use from the system.
Whatever is happening with the sprinkler system, call a contractor and arrange to have it checked. In many cases, the underlying problem will not be as serious as the homeowner feared. Once the origin is found, the contractor can provide a quote for making the necessary repairs. Assuming the cost is acceptable, the homeowner can accept the quote and the repair can get underway.
