Why Won’t My Sprinkler Turn On?

Spring is finally ending, and the scorching summer weather is fast approaching. It is ideal for connecting your sprinkler system if you want a healthy and lush lawn. With your irrigation system not in use for all the winter months, it is likely to develop various issues like not turning on or there are several faulty components in your system. If this is the case for your irrigation system, we recommend hiring a professional sprinkler repair company for maintenance.

At Atlanta Irrigation Company, we have an experienced team of experts with extensive expertise and state-of-the-art tools and equipment to get the job done fast. There are many reasons why your sprinkler is not turning on, and delayed maintenance can lead to costly repairs and irrigation system replacement. Here are some common reasons why your sprinkler system won't turn on.

Faulty Master Valve

If the master valve is faulty or has incurred damage, it can prevent water from reaching your system. Failure to address this problem on time can compromise the efficiency and function of the entire irrigation system. It is vital to check if the master valve was turned off during winter or for maintenance purposes, and turn it on if it is off. However, if this isn't the cause of the problem, a professional irrigation company can help assess and correct it before it becomes more pronounced.

Wiring Issues

Faulty wiring is another common problem that prevents the sprinkler from turning on. An electric multimeter can help measure electrical resistance, but it's advisable to onboard an expert if you don't have the specialized tools. When dealing with electricity, the slightest miscalculation can lead to significant damage and injuries, the more reason to work with Atlanta Irrigation Company. We leverage our extensive industry knowledge and state-of-the-art tools and equipment to enhance safety and quality of service.

Partially Turning On

Sometimes, one area of your system turns on, leading to a partially healthy and lush backyard. The first place to check is the common wire since a sprinkler turning partially on is caused by a severed wire. The common wire is usually white and connects your master valve to your sprinkler's controller and every valve. If the common wire breaks, the adjacent valves won't work, helping you narrow your search.

Whether your system turns on regularly or experiences regular hiccups along the way, like most systems, it requires maintenance and care. We recommend scheduling routine checks with a reputable and reliable service provider to alleviate potential failures that compromise the effectiveness and efficiency of your sprinkler system. Our contractors are well-trained and qualified to handle any task, from irrigation system installation to repairs and replacements.

Don't let a faulty sprinkler deteriorate the appeal and health of your lawn. Atlanta Irrigation Company can ensure your irrigation system is in tip-top condition throughout the year, regardless of the season.
