how to repair underground sprinkler
At one time or another, all lawn sprinklers will be in need of upkeep. The following are some
useful ideas on dealing with and maintaining your underground sprinkler heads as well as some
basic upkeep on the best ways to keep your system running efficiently.
One common trouble is when the lawn sprinklers will stop switching on. Your first step in this
circumstance would be to examine your rain sensor if you have one. If the sensor is on and is
being blocked, it could keep your lawn sprinklers from working. From there, you need to see to it
your controller has power. Something as simple as resetting the power, or inspecting for a loose
wire, may rapidly repair the issue.
Sprinkler heads that pop up from the turf can face a great deal of problems and will most likely be
the part of your sprinkler system you fix most often. All heads will have to be dealt with and
replaced eventually. They can get stuck in the up position or in the down position. They can break
throughout the winter season, or get run over by a lawn mower. To inspect or replace
underground sprinkler heads, you have to start by digging about five inches completely around
the head with a shovel. Bear in mind not to puncture the surrounding water lines! If you dig too
deep, you could wind up causing even more damage and leave even more things in need of
The next step in fixing underground sprinkler heads is to eliminate the nonworking head by
unscrewing it from the connecting pipe. Do your best not to get dirt into the water pipes as you
don't need further troubles in the form of blockages. You can cover the hole with a clean cloth in
the mean time if you choose. From there, you head to the store to buy a brand-new same size
sprinkler head. With the sprinkler head in hand, you going back to your pipe (bearing in mind to
remove the cloth if you used one) and screw the new head on tight. Make sure you readjust the
brand-new sprinkler head so that it is spraying onto your grass and not watering your walkway.
You add the dirt you got rid of previous back into the hole, packing it firmly around the head. You
then flip the switch, stand back, and watch the water fly.
What are you expect to do if one area of your sprinklers will not shut down? Start by switching off
the water at the source. You don't wish to have a river flowing through your yard! You will then
examine for any loose wires or anything that seems broken on your system. Inspect the sprinkler
solenoid, which is the top of the valve by unscrewing it to search for debris. Check to be sure the
plunger does not have to be adjusted. Clean all parts including the diaphragm. It is commonly
something as small as a clog.
From underground sprinkler heads to clogged up rain sensors, keeping your sprinkler system
preserved is not as hard as it seems.
