Sprinklers make watering your yard quick and easy, but they need do need to be maintained. If you notice any of these three signs, it may be time for a repair.
Signs You Have to Repair Your Sprinkler Heads
Uneven watering of your lawn.
Does your lawn have areas which are oversaturated while other spots remain bone dry? This is a clear indication that there is something wrong with your sprinkler system. Most likely, the problem is due to the faulty rotation of your sprinkler head, but there may be other causes. Check to make sure you set the zone control correctly before repairing or replacing the sprinkler.
A sky-high water bill.
If you have a set watering schedule, and you notice that one month's water bill is higher than usual, there is a good chance you have a leak somewhere. Often you can catch a leaky sprinkler head before you wind up paying next month's water bill by inspecting your lawn for puddling or by observing lower water pressure.
Your sprinkler fails to spray water when you turn it on.
This is an obvious sign that something is not right. A common cause of this problem is a clogged valve. Other indications of a blocked sprinkler are reduced water pressure or an erratic water spray. If you notice these signs, turn your sprinkler off and call a professional to avoid damaging your system.
