Water, Water Everywhere is Not so Good

Water, Water Everywhere is Not so Good

Just like your home heating system or car, an in-ground irrigation system needs to be regularly inspected and maintained. Mostly consisting of plastic pipes installed within the frost zone, irrigation system components can break, crack, and become misaligned. This damage is responsible poor irrigation performance, excess water use, and leaks. 

Check for:

  •          Leaking valves or pipes:  Leaks from valves and pipes may be large and very obvious.  Smaller leaks may not show up immediately and will require some detective work.  Replace or repair damaged valves and pipes.
  •          Broken, missing, sunken or tilted heads: Replace damaged or missing heads immediately.  Installing heads on swing pipe allows the head to “float” in the soil and reduces the damage that can result from lawn mowers and other heavy objects.  If not on swing pipes, reposition the head and pack the soil around it carefully.
  •          Clogged Nozzles:  Flush system at the beginning of the irrigation season, install screens on sprinkler heads, replace clogged nozzles, and improve system filtration.
