Patchy Lawn – Even though a lawn needs to be watered, it also needs to be protected from other factors that can cause it to go brown. Too much water can cause damage, but also not enough water. After the spring and summer, lawns need water less frequently. Lawns produce their most growth when given less than what they require for survival. When the roots push down and outward, they bring up water from lower ground levels.
High Water Bill – A leak in your irrigation system installation is not something you want to ignore. A small drip may seem like it is not taking up much water, but over time that drip adds up to gallons of water waste. If you are not catching that leak in time, then you will just be letting water waste away, increasing your water bill and squandering your money! Leaks are the biggest enemy of the modern irrigation system.
Sputtering Heads – An irrigation nozzle that operates intermittently or in a manner that does not cover the entirety of the lawn area is known as a “sputtering” sprinkler. Sometimes, this is caused by clogging of debris such as landscape material and can be remedied by removing the obstruction. However, more often, a valve on the equipment is set improperly or has damaged mechanical components which prevent it from functioning correctly.
