Sprinkler System Repairs and Maintenance
Lawn Sprinkler System Repairs and Maintenance to Restore Optimal Performance
Once a new lawn sprinkler system has been installed, tested, and found to be working in the proper fashion, it is not unreasonable to assume that it will continue to operate as expected each and every time. Unfortunately, like many other types of mechanical systems that are used repeatedly, these systems can underperform or fail on occasion and thus require repair or maintenance services.
There are several ways that a sprinkler system can break down to one degree or another, including but not limited to:
- Loss of water pressure
- Underground pipe leaks
- Malfunctioning controllers
- Accidental damage to pipes
- Clogged valves/sprinkler heads
- Sprinkler head mechanism problems
- Damage resulting from inclement weather
- Plant growth
- Broken components
When any components break or a system malfunctions, a call to A. A. Waters & Brookes will help resolve the problem and return your sprinkler system to its optimal performance level. Our certified technicians will identify the root cause of the situation, recommend the course of action necessary to rectify it, and complete those repairs in an efficient and appropriate fashion to get the system fully operational once again.
Sometimes, an existing sprinkler system might be operating as expected from a mechanical standpoint but may not be providing adequate coverage of the lawn and/or gardens; this is often a result of landscaping changes and growth of plants after the initial installation of a system. Under these circumstances, an A. A. Waters & Brookes technician can assist in rearranging and recalibrating the system to address the watering needs of the reconfigured landscaping.
Preventative Maintenance of a Sprinkler System Can Save Water and Money
In the same manner that regular furnace cleanings can prevent unwanted breakdowns and costs, typically at the most inconvenient time of the year, the routine maintenance of a lawn sprinkler system can be prove beneficial from the perspectives of:
- Personal safety
- Water conservation
- Lifecycle of the system
- Healthier lawns and gardens
Part of this routine maintenance should include comprehensive inspections of the system by a knowledgeable and experience technician from A. A. Waters & Brookes; these inspections can identify some common maintenance-related issues such as:
- Water pressure fluctuations
- Inconsistencies in spray patterns
- Soaked or flooded areas of the lawn
- Loose, damaged, or clogged sprinkler heads
- Sprinkler heads protruding above ground level
In turn, appropriate measures can be taken to resolve these types of issues and prevent the homeowner from incurring unnecessary costs from more extensive damage to their system.
A properly-maintained lawn sprinkler system can help to save water and money and ensure the health and the curb appeal of your property.
