How to Maintain Your Irrigation System

Irrigation systems are not meant to last forever, and failing to provide regular maintenance can compromise the efficiency and effectiveness of your sprinkler. Irrigation systems can run for a long time without indicating damage, but that doesn't mean it's in optimal condition. Many homeowners don't think twice about their sprinklers until there's a problem that calls for professional sprinkler repair. At Atlanta Irrigation Company, we have a dedicated team of professionals with extensive industry knowledge and expertise to handle everything from irrigation system installation to routine inspection and maintenance.

We take the time to conduct a comprehensive assessment of your sprinkler system to pinpoint the root cause of the problem before it gets out of hand. Most sprinkler-related issues can be avoided by scheduling routine maintenance with a professional service provider. Here are some of the practices recommended by our experts for maintaining your irrigation system.

Perform a Regular Checkup

The first and most crucial step is to provide regular inspections and maintenance with a reputable and reliable service provider. We leverage cutting-edge tools and equipment, combined with years of experience guaranteed to meet and exceed expectations for maintenance and repairs. Our goal is to identify potentially failing components before the problem gets out of hand and increase your system's longevity.

If you want to assess the state of your irrigation system, it is advisable to turn it on at the beginning of the season, but it is advisable to have an expert check it every month. A comprehensive assessment involves examining the controller to ensure it functions as expected, checking the time and date setting, and replacing backup batteries. Our sprinkler repair experts recommend checking all sensors and wires for possible connection issues that affect performance.

Check Out the Sprinkler Heads

The following vital area of your irrigation system is the sprinkler heads, which are prone to damage over time, compromising the performance of your system. If you notice that your lawn is not receiving sufficient water, it can be a sign of missing or damaged sprinkler heads, which overwhelm your system and wastes a lot of water. The ideal solution to avoiding putting too much pressure on your system is replacing damaged sprinkler heads for optimal performance and efficiency.

Check for Spray Head Leaks

A spray head is another common area that needs to be regularly checked for leaks since debris and dirt wear away the wiper seal. The deterioration of the wiper seal over time leaves your irrigation system prone to leaks, but if your spray head is a single unit, you need to replace the whole head. If you don't want to incur the extra cost of repairs and replacements, it is advisable to flush the system at the beginning of the season to prevent buildup.

Irrigation system maintenance is a part of routine landscape maintenance, and Atlanta Irrigation Company can help you maintain a healthy and lush lawn. Call us today and schedule an appointment with our experts for quality irrigation system installation and maintenance.
