Lawn care services companies check for the most common damages first
So many things could happen to your irrigation system and some of them could be hard to decipher. Even the easier ones can sometimes be a challenge if you don’t know how to repair them.
Only professionals from companies that offer lawn care services and landscape maintenance services can usually find the problem and rectify it.
Some of the most common problems include:
Missing or broken sprinkler heads – Lawn mowers sometimes cause damage to sprinkler heads. This means such have to be replaced and re-installed properly. An expert is required for such repairs.
Replacing clogged nozzles – Sometimes, it could be just a clog in the system, when dirty water has pumped through or when debris has found its way into the system. This has to be removed for the sprinkler to work effectively.
Sealing leaks – System leaks could be costing you hundreds of dollars if left unattended for long. If you spot some soggy patches in the lawn, you need to call our lawn care company for a check. Leaks usually occur on the spray head because of debris finding its way into the sprinkler head. We will also determine whether we need to replace the entire sprinkler head, or just a part of it.
Sunken heads – This problem occurs when the lawn mower presses too hard on the sprinkler head, causing it to settle. Cut grass, soil and other types of dirt may get into the sprinkler head if it is not placed above the grass, causing erratic sprinkling. A good lawn care services company like Tender Care can fix that easily.
Correcting overspray – This is something that a homeowner can fix, if they know where to tweak and tune. Mostly it requires the adjustment of the nozzles, adjustment of the pressure as well as changing the nozzles to the correct sized ones.
Erratic spray arc – An incorrect spray pattern could mean more water going to the pavement than to the grass thus causing wastage. Before correcting this, our team will first determine what could be the cause and then they will set it right. If an erratic nozzle needs to be replaced with one that has the right spray pattern, they will do it.
When you do not have enough pressure – If the sprinkler head does not pop up, then it means there is low water pressure. If it does pop up and sprays a mist, then it means there is too much pressure. Too high and too low is not good at all. We will correct that for you.
