If your sprinkler system isn't living up to the hype, call in our Lakewood sprinkler repair team to get it back to all-star form. There are several small things that can go wrong in the intricate set-up of an irrigation system that can lead to poor performance and a lackluster lawn. Our Lakewood irrigation specialists have seen this scenario time and time again. A sprinkler system may be a set-it-and-forget-it tool, but just like all tools, it needs to be maintenance regularly.
The number one reason that sprinkler systems fail is because they are not properly prepared for the winter months. If a professional isn't called in to do a complete blowout and winterization, residual water droplets can freeze in the seals and delivery lines resulting in underground breaks and cracked seals. A poorly winterized system will require major fixes before it can be used the following spring. Our Lakewood sprinkler team has seen this on more than one occasion.
If sprinkler heads aren't cleaned out they can become clogged with grass clippings, leaves, dirt and various other debris. This can lead to heads getting jammed, rotors failing and valves being broken. Having a simple maintenance scheduled once every three months is usually enough to prevent these pop up failures. If a head is damaged, we carry every major brand on our trucks and can replace it on the spot. This is one of our top Lakewood sprinkler repairs.
If it has been several years since your sprinkler system was installed, chances are that it is not optimized for your current landscape needs. Foundation plantings and flower beds often have much larger plants in them than they did at the time of set-up and the height of the lawn has probably changed as well. The shorter heads that were installed originally often don't rise up high enough out of the dirt to effectively irrigate the land. Our Lakewood CO sprinkler repair techs can switch out 2 and 4 inch pop up heads for larger 6 and 12 inch models. This simple change is often all that is needed to restore coverage to your system.
Of course, there are hundreds of things that can go wrong with a system of this complexity. A single cracked valve can compromise the entire pressure setting for any sprinkler heads down line from it. Because most of the problems with sprinkler systems result in similar symptoms our techs come fully prepared for anything. Our trucks are fitted with every make and model of sprinkler head currently available, enough to cover the Lakewood area twice over. We also carry all of our tools to each job site. We can repair any problem, big or small, usually within a few hours of arrival. Of course, very large jobs or systems may require some extra time. Whatever the case, we will keep you apprised of the situation and an estimated completion time. Give us a call and see what a professional sprinkler repair team can do for you.
