Most Common Sprinkler System Issues
- Broken Valves: If a certain sprinkler zone either won’t turn on or it won’t turn off, that’s a clear sign that your valve is broken. If a valve is not opening (zone not turning on), it’s most probably the valve solenoid, or an electrical contact leading to it. On the other hand, if the valve won’t close (zone not turning off), it’s either a ruptured valve diaphragm or dirt and debris in the valve.
- Clogged Sprinkler Heads: Another common issue with sprinkler systems is a clogged sprinkler head. In most cases, debris such as cut grass and dirt get into the heads, interrupting the head’s normal spray pattern. An easy warning sign is an irregular spray pattern or a pool of water around the sprinkler. Our Park City Sprinkler Repairs team manually checks each and every sprinkler for possible signs of a clogged head.
- Burst Pipes: A burst in your water line can lead to significant water damage in your yard, not to mention an enormous water bill. If your soil gets too saturated with water, it might form a small pool in the middle of your yard. Common spots where a leak might occur is in the corners, where fittings could go loose if not set correctly.
There is a multitude of electrical issues that might trouble your perfectly set up sprinkler system. A malfunctioning rain sensor might waste water, sprinkling even when it’s raining, for example. Worse yet, it could be falsely detecting rain when there is none, effectively cutting off your plants’ water supply. In other cases, broken timers can completely mess up your watering schedule, either setting off the sprinklers too often or not often enough. In any case, our Park City Sprinkler Repairs team can resolve any electrical issue that they encounter.
