A look at some of the most common signs your lawn sprinkler system requires attention from the irrigation professionals

If grass were left to survive on its own in Clearwater, there would be little left. Rainwater alone will not suffice for your beautiful grass. If your lawn is going to stay a lovely green into the dog days of summer, it will require some assistance. A reliable sprinkler system is essential to maintaining the beauty, condition, and health of your lawn. So be sure to keep your sprinkler in tip-top shape. If it malfunctions, your lawn will suffer the consequences. Here is a look at some of the top signs lawn sprinkler system repairs are required.

Inconsistent Water Flow

Take a walk around your Clearwater property. Look at the ground to determine if there is one or several sprinkler heads sputtering. Perhaps they are slowly leaking water or operating in a manner that is less than a consistent stream. There might be a number of different issues in play. The sprinkler head might be cracked. Perhaps there is a problem with the valve. Let our lawn sprinkler system repair experts analyze, maintain, and repair your system as necessary so your lawn stays a beautiful shade of green across the entirety of the year.

A Lack of Pressure

If the water pressure is reduced, this problem should be addressed right away. It does not matter if the pressure has slowed to a single head or an entire zone. If it will not provide the level of pressure necessary to hydrate your lawn in full, your system requires attention from one of our irrigation experts.

New Additions to the Landscaping

There is no need to wait for the sprinkler system to malfunction prior to updating it. Try to place new elements such as trees, flower beds, shrubs etc. within the reach of your sprinkler system. If positioned too far away, contact us for assistance with extending the flow of water to your newly-added niceties. It might even be possible to alter your system so the new additions receive ample moisture.

An Absurdly High Water Bill

If your water bill is exorbitantly high, your irrigation system is likely malfunctioning. There might be a leak or another issue that is wasting water. We will pinpoint the leak or other problem and implement a fix.

Watering That is Uneven

Walk around your property from time to time following the operation of your sprinkler system and you might spot pools of water. There might be drenched portions of the lawn, driveway, shrubs, or other areas.

Dry portions are just as much of a problem as they are a sign the sprinkler system does not emit water with a balanced distribution. The bottom line is grass that is not watered in an even manner will soon pose major problems. The solution just might be an adjustment of the sprinkler heads performed by one of our irrigation experts.
