Signs You Need a New Irrigation System and/or Sprinkler Repair
Maintaining a beautiful, healthy lawn requires proper irrigation. While irrigation systems are efficient devices, they tend to wear down over time. When a malfunction occurs, Nixa Lawn Service can help with repairs, audits, and backflow inspections. Today’s blog discusses some warning signs that you need to repair or replace your sprinkler system. The earlier you identify these signs, the quicker we can fix the problem and get your lawn back to its prime condition!
Your Sprinkler Heads Are Sputtering
Are your sprinklers spraying off-course? Are they spurting water rather than spraying it consistently? If so, check the sprinkler heads for dirt clogs. If you clear the debris and spot other signs of damage (cracks), contact Nixa Lawn Service. We can inspect the pressure settings for your control valves and your sprinkler heads, and we can provide the solution you need.

The Control Valves Are Constantly Dripping
The control valves regulate the water supply for your irrigation system. If these valves are dripping or leaking, this is a warning sign that your system is faulty. A leaking control valve can lead to high water bills and costly damage in the future, so call Nixa Lawn Service right away.
You Notice Puddles Around the Yard
It’s normal to see puddles in your yard immediately after watering. But if the wet patches appear when you haven’t used your sprinkler, or there’s a flooded area that lasts for many days, this is a problem. Whether you have a faulty sprinkler head or there’s a leak in your irrigation system, Nixa Lawn Service can locate and repair the issue.

There Is Low or Changing Water Pressure
Eventually, your system’s components will wear out, which often generates changing water pressure. If the water pressure is too low, parts of your yard may not receive water. If the pressure is too high, it could cause premature damage to your sprinkler system. So, check your sprinkler head to make sure it delivers consistent spray each time it turns on. If it doesn’t, and the issue persists, contact the irrigation repair team at Nixa Lawn Service.
You Have High Water Bills
If your monthly water bill seems unusually high, your irrigation system may have a problem.
