Is your sprinkler system acting up? Rely on professionals to assess the problem, repair your sprinkler valves, and get the system back in working order.

When sprinklers malfunction, most home, and business owners assume it is the sprinkler heads that are at fault. Oftentimes, the sprinkler heads and entire irrigation system are functioning, except for the valve.

Sprinkler Valve Basics

Sprinkler valves serve the purpose of regulating and controlling water flow so your property receives just the right amount of moisture. These valves control the movement of water for in-ground and above ground irrigation systems. Everyday people who own homes and those who own or manage businesses are reliant upon sprinkler valves to ensure adequate water flow.

Sprinkler valves are plumbed in a manifold or sequential manner. Those used for above ground systems are referred to as anti-siphon valves. Those located underground are known as inline valves.

Do not Attempt Sprinkler Valve Repairs on Your Own!

Sprinkler valve repair is not a do it yourself job. Valves positioned in a control box below the surface of your property are difficult to reach, analyze, and repair. Leave this difficult project to sprinkler valve repair experts and you will not have to bother with getting dirty and attempting to figure out the details of the equipment mechanics.

Those who attempt to diagnose sprinkler issues on their own also tend to make the mistake of failing to turn the sprinkler valves on or off in the proper manner. The diaphragms will eventually wear to the point that they weaken and leak water when not activated. In some cases, diaphragms will not shut off. For the most part, weakened irrigation valves are the result of excessively worn diaphragms, yet there are numerous other parts that can be broken or damaged and cause malfunctions.
