By acting quickly if you see the signs that you need sprinkler system repair, you will have a very good chance of saving a substantial amount of money. The reason is that if an issue can be addressed when it is still minor, that will save you from needing much more extensive work. Here are a few of the things to be on the lookout for; give Andy’s Sprinkler a call if you need us.
You’ll obviously need sprinkler system repair if you see leaks of any kind. Be particularly aware of a pipe leak; for example, if an area of your yard is particularly muddy, there could be a leak in the pipe. If this is the case, than a technician will likely need to dig into your yard to expose the section of problem pipe, and replace that portion with a new PVC piece. The larger the muddy area, of course, the more extensive the repair will be.
Also, check to see if any of the sprinkler heads are leaking. There should be no dripping or spraying once you turn the system off. If that is occurring, then the head with the issue will need to be replaced.
Valve Problems and Blockages
If your system turns on and off but you don’t see any spray, a valve could be blocked. Turn off the water, take off the valve and clean it. If the problem persists, the valve will need to be replaced. Spray heads can also be blocked by grass or dirt. Try unscrewing the top of a clogged head to remove the obstruction. If that doesn’t work, call a professional.
These are just a couple of the potential issues you may be experiencing that will call for sprinkler system repair. If you see these or another problem (such as odd spray patterns), get in touch with an Andy’s Sprinkler expert. Contact us online or call us at 214-389-3412 to schedule an appointment.
