Warning Signs You Need Sprinkler System Repair

If you are a home or property owner, there's nothing more welcoming than a lush yard. There are many benefits of maintaining a well-nourished, beautiful lawn, and that's why it is advisable to schedule routine maintenance of your sprinkler system with a reputable and reliable landscaping company. Failure to provide the needed care to your property can lead to further damage, resulting in an unruly yard. At Atlanta Landscape & Irrigation, we can help you enhance the quality of your outdoor space and ensure that your sprinklers are protected from potential damage and poor functioning.

Luckily, it doesn't have to get to this point for you to realize your sprinkler system has not been running as expected. Hiring an expert landscaper goes a long way in ensuring that warning signs are detected early before you experience further damage. Here are some warning signs you need to look out for to avoid significant damage to your sprinkler system.

Decreased Pressure

Like any other system in your home that's constantly in use, your sprinkler system is susceptible to wear and tear. If there's a worn-out component in the system, then water won't be effectively distributed to every inch of your yard. This is usually a result of insufficient water pressure, and prolonged use of your sprinkler in this condition can lead to irreversible damage. Once you notice a decline in the water pressure, you should contact a professional landscaper to address the issue.

Dripping Valves

Valves play a vital role in a sprinkler system, hence ensuring they are in tiptop condition. A damaged valve usually leads to a leak, which affects the sprinkler's ability to function correctly. If your lawn is not receiving sufficient water, you should check all the valves to ensure that they are not dripping. Dripping valves are also caused by the accumulation of dirt and debris, affecting water pressure. Atlanta Landscape & Irrigation can conduct a comprehensive assessment of your sprinkler system to pinpoint the cause of dripping valves and provide the necessary repairs or replacements.

Squashy Grass

If you take a stroll around your lawn and detect patches of green, wet, and mushy grass, it's a sign you are due a sprinkler system repair. Whether your sprinkler's ability to rotate effectively and efficiently has been impeded, or there's damage to various components of your sprinkler system, an expert landscaper can help you get it fixed and alleviate any future risks of damage. Onboarding a professional landscaping company allows you to leverage their extensive industry experience and expertise so that you can maintain an efficient and functioning sprinkler system.

Extreme Water Bills

Utility bills are usually predictable, especially if you have lived or owned the property for a long time. However, when you receive a higher water bill than usual, you need to schedule a maintenance check as soon as possible, or your risk is spending thousands of dollars annually. These are some warning signs you need to look out for to maintain an efficient sprinkler system.
