If you own a commercial property, you know the importance of a well-maintained landscape. An attractive landscape gives customers and clients a great first impression. Your business relies on the irrigation system to help keep your landscape looking its best. That’s why it’s important to recognize the signs your irrigation system needs repairs. Those warning signs include:
Change in Water Pressure
An unexpected change in your irrigation system’s pressure is a sign it needs repairs. Too little water pressure won’t water the lawn effectively. If the water pressure is too high, your equipment may wear out prematurely. Have your irrigation system inspected and repaired if you notice a change in water pressure.
Damp, soggy spots around your facility’s landscape have several possible causes. You may have a leak in your irrigation system. Your landscape may have poor drainage, or you may need to adjust your watering schedule. If your lawn has dry patches, a head may need to be adjusted, or a valve may need replacing.
Stuck Sprinkler Head
A common irrigation system problem is a sprinkler head that doesn’t pop up when the system is turned on. This issue is often caused by low water pressure. It’s also possible that dirt or debris is stuck to the head. Make sure the space around the sprinkler head is clear.
The control valves deliver the proper amount of water to each part of your lawn. The control valves should not drip or leak. If you notice damp areas around the control valves or pressure regulators, you should have your irrigation system checked.
Increase in Water Bill
If your facility’s water bill is unusually high, you should have a technician check your irrigation system. It’s possible your system has a leak that will need to be repaired.
