A well-functioning lawn sprinkler system is essential for a healthy lawn. However, over time, your system will require maintenance and perhaps even repairs. How can you tell when it’s time to call in a professional? Here are three surefire signs that your lawn sprinkler system needs service.
1. Uneven Watering Patterns
One of the first signs that your sprinkler system needs service is uneven watering patterns. This could manifest itself in patchy areas of your lawn that seem to be either over- or under-watered. If you notice that some areas of your lawn are getting too much water while others are not getting enough, it’s time to give us a call. We’ll come out and take a look at your system to see what the problem is and get it back up and running smoothly.
2. Broken Sprinkler Heads
Another sign that your sprinkler system needs service is broken sprinkler heads. This isn’t always easy to spot, so pay close attention to how your lawn looks after the sprinklers have been on. Are there any brown or yellow patches? If so, that could be an indication that one or more of the sprinkler heads is not working properly. Again, this is something we can easily fix for you with a quick visit from one of our technician.
3. High Water Bills
If you’ve noticed a sudden uptick in your water bill, that could also be an indication that your sprinkler system needs service. A broken pipe or leaky valve can cause water to leak out even when the system isn’t turned on, resulting in higher than normal water usage and bills. If you think you may have a leak, give us a call right away so we can come out and take a look before things get worse.
Don’t get caught in the DIY loop of everything being broken. Fixing these issues can require some major time and experience to get it done right. Save yourself time, money and frustration by hiring a high quality professional lawn sprinkler contractor.
A healthy lawn requires a well-functioning irrigation system; however, over time, even the best systems will need service. Keep an eye out for these three signs that indicate it’s time to call in a professional: uneven watering patterns, broken sprinkler heads, and high water bills. We’re here to help keep your lawn looking its best all season long!
