3 Signs There’s a Sprinkler Situation

Saturday, August 20th, 2016

It is so easy for a sprinkler head to get turned the wrong way or broken and cause a wet mess. Signs to check for:

  • High water bill. Sometimes you can get a credit back once the issue is fixed. So check the company’s/municipality’s policies on this one.
  • Displaced landscaping or dirt.  If you have a big gusher it can relocate your mulch and other small plantings.
  • Wet interior walls. Do you see blistering paint or is the baseboard separating from the drywall?  All worth checking out!

Be proactive… Check your sprinkler system every so often by running each zone manually….or have your landscaper be on the lookout!

Water Works?

It is rare that some sprinkler system issue doesn’t come up at an inspection. Here are 5 common ones:

  1. Watering the house
  2. Broken sprinkler head
  3. Weak water pressure
  4. Buried sprinkler head
  5. Panel not working

It is so important to turn your sprinkler system on manually and inspect it a couple times a year.
