Dying, Patchy Grass

Sometimes life can get hectic, and with juggling your work life and spending time with your family, you might not have the opportunity to inspect your grass. However, brown, patchy, and dying grass is pretty easy to spot. If you notice any withering grass, this is a clear-cut sign that there is something wrong with your sprinkler system, and action needs to be taken as soon as possible to avoid having to re-lay the lawn, which is a cost that can be easily averted with sprinkler repair. Most likely, the problem is a defective sprinkler head that is either clogged or not has been moved out of position and not watering areas that it should be.

Leaky Sprinkler Heads

Whenever you have the chance, check in on your sprinkler heads to make sure that they’re doing okay. If you notice any pools of water around them or actually witness one of the heads leaking while the system is off, then it is probably cracked or broken. Make sure to be attentive while doing yard book to avoid this preemptively, but don’t sweat it if you currently have a broken sprinkler head. Just reach out to us and we’ll get it repaired immediately.

Issues With Pressure

If your sprinklers begin spraying out water way too fast, or the water just sadly dribbles out and doesn’t hydrate the area of grass that it should be, it’s reasonable to assume that you’re experiencing a problem with water pressure. There can be a few reasons for this. There could be an issue with your valves and regulators. If these seem okay, then it could also be a problem in the irrigation pipes. If your sprinklers are spraying too hard, this not only could overwater your grass, but also has your irrigation system working overtime which will cause it to fail before it should. If there is not enough pressure, well, your grass isn’t going to be getting the water that it needs to thrive. Either way, you’re going landscape services from Orange Irrigation to get your sprinkler system functioning as it should be.

Higher Bills

No one likes to pay bills, it’s a fact of life. However, we all know that paying bills are necessary for a functioning society. Yet, we never want to be overpaying. If you receive your monthly water bill, and the amount has you reaching for a chair to sit down, it’s not because the water company is trying to pull a fast one. You know better than anyone what your monthly bill should be, so if it is significantly higher than average, there is an issue with your sprinkler system. There is probably a leak that is causing your bills to skyrocket.
