Are you noticing a lot of puddling around your yard or garden? What about brown spots where there shouldn’t be brown spots?
It could be your sprinkler system that’s creating the cause of your gardening woes.
Cracked or Broken Sprinkler Heads
Take a look around your yard and garden checking each of the sprinkler heads. You’ll notice any that are not functioning as they should be. By taking a closer look, you’ll also be able to easily identify if they are cracked or broken on the head. If they are, you’ll need to dig down to remove the sprinkler heads and replace them.
Low Water Pressure
If you’re noticing sprinklers that are barely shooting any water out at all, low water pressure could be the culprit.
The first thing you need to do is to check the valves of the backflow device to make sure they are fully open.
If the valves are open, then it’s time to look for leaks. Take a look at your sprinkler heads. Find two that are connected to the same water line that appear to not be functioning properly. You’ll have to dig down to investigate the issue and find the leak, but by looking to your sprinkler heads first, you should be able to narrow down the location of the potential leak.
