Common Sprinkler Repair Issues

As long-time sprinkler repair specialists, we’ve successfully repaired nearly every possible sprinkler problem imaginable. Some of the most common residential sprinkler issues include:


Sprinkler Leaks

Your sprinkler system may leak if it becomes very worn over time, or if it is damaged by foot traffic, mowing, snow removal and other lawn care services. Leaks in your sprinklers can end up wasting water, causing your utility bills to skyrocket. They can result in dramatic pressure loss, causing dry areas on your lawn. Valves will often leak after time as well.


Clogged Sprinkler Head

Over time, dirt and debris can become trapped in the filter and nozzles of your lawn sprinklers. Your irrigation system may be affected by clogged sprinklers if little or no water exits the nozzle while the system is up and running. Our technician will examine your system to determine the areas of clogging before cleaning them out and taking steps to prevent future clogging.


Removed Sprinkler Nozzles

If any of the nozzles from a spray-type sprinkler system become removed from the system due to mowing or general wear and tear, this can decrease the water pressure. Decreased water pressure can mean insufficient lawn coverage, dry patches, and weed and fungus growth. Our sprinkler repair specialists can locate and service the missing nozzle and determine the proper replacement based on the sprinkler type and brand.


Broken Sprinkler Pipes

If you notice bubbling water, a wet area, or a patch of grass that is greener than the rest of your lawn, this may be a sign of a broken pipe. In order to fix a broken pipe, your technician may need to excavate in order to find the pipe area of concern. After exposing, cleaning, and fixing the damage, your technician will help clean up the area to ensure your lawn will return to its original lush, green, and healthy state in as little time as possible.


Wiring Issues

The wiring involved with irrigation systems can be quite complex. Our skilled technician will examine your wiring in order to identify and mend spliced or damaged wires. All technicians have the latest wire tracking equipment to locate valves and breaks the wire. If necessary, your technician can service or replace your transformer, rewire electric solenoid valves, or install low-voltage control wiring.


Broken Sprinkler Timer

When a controller/timer malfunctions, it can become impossible to operate your sprinklers properly. Similarly, if your timer, rain and moisture sensor, or temperature sensor malfunctions, you can end up wasting a lot of water and money. Our experienced technicians can repair and service your current control and sensor systems, or replace the systems entirely with the latest technology.



Backflow can unleash harmful chemicals into your drinking water. Our company technicians can perform an advanced test to find if your sprinkler system is vulnerable to backflow, and repair or upgrade your prevention device to halt backflow and avoid future issues. A properly functioning back flow prevention mechanism is essential to ensuring the drinking and bathing water supplied to your home is safe.

After the evaluation, your sprinkler technician will suggest actionable solutions that can conserve water and reduce your utility costs, then help you bring those solutions to life.
