Common Irrigation System Problems


Malfunctioning Sprinkler Heads

If your sprinkler heads are spraying unevenly or not at all there could be a variety of causes. An irrigation valve may be sticking, the nozzles may be clogged, or sometimes DIY repairs or improper installation has resulted in mismatched precipitation rates for your lawn sprinkler heads.


Split or Leaking Pipes

The pipes for irrigation services are almost always PVC and even when installed correctly will eventually crack and fail. If you notice a soggy spot in your yard, higher water bills than expected, or decreased water pressure in your irrigation system, you may have a broken or leaking pipe.


Faulty Solenoids and Valves

Solenoids are electronically actuated devices which open and shut irrigation system valves. If these valves malfunction, water may flow from your sprinkler nozzles even after the cycle is complete. If the wiring to these solenoids goes bad, or if you have a broken wire, they may not open at all when the system engages, resulting in inoperable zones.

Frequently Asked Questions

I’m changing my landscape design and want to upgrade my existing sprinkler system, do I need to replace the entire system?

We can add zones to your system to accommodate any changes to your landscape design including drip irrigation for new plantings or standard zones for lawns. We can assess your current system and determine what solution will be best for you.

My sprinkler is leaking uncontrollably, how do I turn it off?

The best short-term solution for a sprinkler system which is leaking uncontrollably is to turn off the shut-off valve, also known as the backflow control valve. This valve is usually located near your water meter in a green box.

What do I do if I have a stuck valve?

The best solution for a stuck valve is to turn off your shut-off valve. Since stuck valves are not electrical problems, you cannot fix this by turning off your sprinkler’s control panel.
