Irrigation Repair and Programming
Just like maintaining your landscape is important, so is the maintenance of your new or existing irrigation system. A properly installed irrigation system should last a long time without any major issues, however, sometimes things like earthquakes and weather can cause there to be some movement in the system. Our team of landscapers and irrigation professionals can also assist you in resetting zones and programming timers associated with your irrigation system. Here we will discuss some common problems and solutions that go along with irrigation repair and programming.
There are some ways that irrigation systems will commonly fail across the board. At times, a sprinkler head may go out and require a replacement. Other times, the sprinkler head may just need to be cleaned out and reset. If the water pressure is low, the valves could be to blame. Sometimes, leaks could be the culprit of low water pressure. Roots can even cause pipes to crushed and require replacement.
It can be confusing for a homeowner when a zone randomly decides to stop working. Luckily, our team is aware of some of the ways that zones go out a how to repair them quickly. Our team will start by checking the voltages of the bad zones. If it’s too low, the controller may need to be replaced. Other times, the fuses and transformers may be to blame. In this case, both can be replaced. If that still isn’t the issue, then the sprinkler solenoid may need to be replaced. Another way that zones can stop working is if the wires become damaged. If the signals can’t be sent from the sprinkler system to the sprinkler head, then bad wiring could be to blame.
It is important to have a general understanding of how your irrigation system works, and one of our qualified experts can explain to you the ins and outs of your specific system and design. However, there are some things that most systems will have in common. The start time is the time at which certain valves will open to allow water to flow to certain sprinkler heads within certain zones. The duration is also set to a specific time. There are some manual ways to operate the system as well, if needed. There will usually be a button to allow for you to manually control zones and valves. Systems can even be put on semi auto functions or customizable functions.
