Frisco Sprinkler Repair and Outdoor Lighting Design
People take great pride in the upkeep of their yard. This involves spending hours planting gardens, trees, bushes, flowers, and all sorts of things. Not only does this add value to their home, but it also makes the property much more aesthetically pleasing.
Sprinkler Repair of Texas understands how important your lawn is in Frisco, TX. One of the first things people notice about a home is the lawn and how nice (or not nice) the yard looks. Unfortunately, many people just don’t have the time or energy for upkeep. One of the best things for a healthy lawn is the sprinkler system. Not only is it designed to water the lawn, but it takes a calculated approach of the amount, when and where the water will be distributed. Sprinkler repairs in Frisco can get expensive, so in order to keep repair costs down, it’s important to keep regular maintenance up on your system.
We’re going to look at a few issues and what you can do to fix them. Some require very little expertise, just a little willpower, and a tiny bit of know-how. But, some issues will likely require a certified expert of some sort to get things going correctly. That is where Sprinkler Repair of Texas comes in, please out to us with further questions. Below are a couple of issues you can identify and potentially fix.
Sprinkler Repair and Maintenance:
- Incorrect Spray Pattern/Nozzle – Basically this is an issue because either the throw distance of the water (or also known as the radius) is way too far, or the arc of the nozzle is incorrect for the portion of the lawn that you’re attempting to water. So for example, you may have something that only requires a 150-degree spray when it’s actually set at 170 degrees. This ends up hitting beyond what needs to be watered which could include sidewalks, driveways, fences, or even the side of a building/home. These things obviously do not need water. So in order to fix this, you can either replace the nozzle, use a radius reduction screw, use the hunter key to adjust rotor heads, or use variable arc nozzles where you might need to create a custom arc.
- Clogged Nozzle – A clogged pipe or drain should be somewhat familiar to most people if they’ve ever lived in a home. Clogs happen when debris in the system finds its way to the nozzle or the filter in a spray head. It could be plastic, roots, dirt, sand, or many other things that could get into your system. A clogged head will cause uneven distribution which ultimately leads to brown spots in your lawn. In order to fix, you’ll first need to switch your system off to keep from being sprayed and wasting water. You’ll remove the nozzle from the spray head, holding the stem of the head or clamping it to keep it from falling into the head body. You’ll remove the filter, wash it out, replace the clean filter, reattach everything, then finally you’ll adjust the correct spray pattern to make sure the turn is receiving the water it’s supposed to have.
There are many things that could happen to require some sprinkler repair in Frisco, but with a little routine maintenance and some working knowledge of irrigation systems, you’ll be good for years to come. However, things happen, and that’s when it might be appropriate to reach out to a certified professional for assistance.
