Puddles are forming in one area while other areas aren’t getting sufficient water pressure. Sprinkler line repair is essential for system operation.
A malfunctioning sprinkler timer requires replacement or upgrade.
This can be the result of a leak, a clogged shower head or another issue such as an installation mistake.
Sprinkler heads may have different precipitation rates. A well-trained professional may mix rates to adjust for different shapes or spray ranges. However, less experienced contractors may mistakenly use the wrong heads when installing or making repairs.
Sprayers, rotors, drippers and bubblers all have different flow rates. If you put them all on the same timer, you’ll get uneven watering. They need to be on their own schedules.
If your irrigation system is running when it does, you’re losing money. A rainwater shutoff is easy to retrofit onto most systems. This is a common request from our clients.
Not every area needs a full and wide circle of spray. Many efficient systems require different nozzle types to fill spaces evenly.
For grass, each sprinkler head should sit low to the ground and out of harm’s way. In bushes, the heads should be raised up so that they can throw water more efficiently.
Sometimes a residential sprinkler repair is needed to stop watering areas that are not grass, a tree or garden. Many systems overspray, watering non-turf areas like sidewalks and driveways.
There’s too much water in some places due to overlap. Adjustments can fix this problem.
There are dry spots, requiring residential sprinkler repair. For grass and other areas where you want broad coverage, an effective repair is to find an overlap “sweet spot.” Not too much, not too little.
Shallow pipes will break when too much weight passes on top of them. This problem leads to sprinkler line repair.
Shrubs and trees require roughly half the water that turf grasses do. Scheduling can be altered for better results.
Drip lines rely on water pressure for smooth operation. Not enough pressure is often caused by improper tubing or putting too many emitters on one line.
Incorrect pressure levels will cause your tubing to pop off and your system to stop working. This indicates the need to fix or add a pressure regulator.
Plants may have vastly different needs in the same yard. This requires a sophisticate mix of higher and lower flow rate emitters within a zone to match these differing needs.
Drip lines use very small holes to trickle water to plants. Without a filter, they can easily clog and stop working. Companies that perform sprinkler repair in DFW can check if the filter is working during routine maintenance. If you’re not sure if you have a filter, just give us a call.
If you’ve suffered damage to your yard because of a broken system or if there are any imperfections after an installation is done. No problem! We also are a full-service landscaping company. Although, a properly installed system will not damage your lawn.
Generally, a sprinkler system should last for 10 to 15 years if it is properly maintained. Top-quality irrigation systems can even last for 20 years without needing replacements. So, if your sprinkler system was installed just a few years ago, it likely just needs repairs.
Yes! System maintenance can help save you a lot of money and water! Cracks in pipes can lead to costly leaks, and broken sprinkler heads can waste water and money.
Watering every day is not advised. It should be done 2 to 3 times per week only to prevent a shallow root system.
Installing a lawn sprinkler has many moving parts with a lot of tools, shovels and a mechanical tool to create trenches for piping. It takes about one day—unless the contractor runs into any problems or there are municipality regulations to extend the project—to install an irrigation system.
While different parts of your system may need replacing throughout its life, you can expect the average sprinkler system to last for upwards of 20 years.
Generally, a sprinkler system should last for 10 to 15 years or more if it is properly maintained.
Not only does this waste water, it’s also tough on the water bill – and can cause irreparable lawn and plant damage.
This is impossible to say. There’s a lot of factors involved. The lawn size and sprinkler system type are the most influential cost factors, and you should expect to pay $0.20 – $1.00 per square foot.
