Patchy Lawn – When a lawn goes from a lush green condition to a parched brown state, it is a symptom of being watered incorrectly. It might be because you are not watering enough, the time of day you are watering is prone to evaporation, or the irrigation system maintenance is not configured properly. In essence, it is caused by landscaping activity that results in dry soil around the root zone of the grass. You may not realize it, but lawn replacement can turn into an expensive task.
High Water Bill – If your water bill is too high, you need to check for leaks in your irrigation system. A leak will cause your water bill to increase because water is being repeatedly wasted from the same area, making it easier for an irrigation technician to detect. Leaks within irrigation systems are most commonly caused by component failure. Often, this leaves foreign matter behind that can no longer be inspected properly without tearing up the line. Foreign matter builds up over time, obstructing the pipe and eventually causing an even bigger problem.
Sputtering Heads – “Coughing” sprinkler heads are one of the most common problems that occur with irrigation systems. They can be annoying for home owners and, in landscaping situations, can damage nearby shrubbery or even landscaped areas. Farmers certainly would not wish to have a sputtering sprinkler system because it can harm the seasonal crop.
