Sprinkler and irrigation system repair can be simple tasks. Most repairs are due to poorly-planned irrigation system installation. Always remember to use a licensed and insured landscaper with great references. Although some repairs may be costly, it is much safer to have a sprinkler system than using a watering hose. Hoses have been known to cause such illnesses as Pontiac fever or Legionellosis.
Sprinkler systems aren't out of the water, however. Cross-contamination from the irrigation system to your home can be an issue with a poorly-planned irrigation system.

There is a current that turns the irrigation controller and helps the valves to open.
The water meter, which is also installed, tells how much water is flowing into your yard. This is something that will also be addressed, as it can assist in indicating which zone has an issue. Most sprinklers spray between 7 to 15 feet of water. If your yard isn't that big, you may be better off with a drip system, which works best for plants and flowers.The system shut off valve is also imperative to review.
We view more than the voltage that is being released, and make sure that overall, there are no issues.

What is an irrigation system, and why should you be concerned about it? An irrigation system, in brief, is anything that involves the structured application of water to serve crops, landscapes, and more. Now it's no Great Canal or Mesopotamia, but it still has it's benefits for you and me. For someone at home, it's as simple as a sprinkler system. Irrigation systems yield benefits left and right, but things can get tricky when that system starts to leak. It may not seem that big of a deal, but it can wreak havoc on your yard. For both you and the environment. Read on to learn why.
Irrigation systems have heaps of benefits for your yard. Including reducing weed growth, because the water is concentrated and managed. This keeps water from traveling to places it shouldn't be, effectively killing off weeds. The system of irrigation can also benefit grasses and plants. The flow of water, less when over a long period leads to a more lush yard. It's not as easy as just taking a watering can out. That can harm the soil. With watering by hand, you can end up giving too much, in turn compromising the state of your soil. Along with harming soil, it can be wasteful of water. The runoff can damage the soil underneath, diminishing grass and plant growth. But back to the unbelievable benefits. When it's time to leave the home, these irrigation systems can work in your favor when it comes to pricing. These systems vastly improve the look of your lawn, which is appealing to future homeowners. Although, all of these benefits can go away as soon as it starts leaking. But why?
Let's first talk about financially. When it continuously leaks, it can mean wasting 60,000 more gallons of water per month. More valves equal more water, and money wasted. That can run up a water bill faster than Usain Bolt, and harm the environment faster than you can think. Along with whats mentioned before, it can damage your soil. The excess in water can lead to what's called "dead zones" in your yard, areas of dead or dying grasses and plants. It doesn't make for a very appealing yard, which can bring down property value tremendously.
Functioning irrigation systems are also important for hot summer months, or even hot summer states. A good example is places like Phoenix and Scottsdale Arizona. With a yearly temp of 86.7 °F in Phoenix and 84.7 °F in Scottsdale, year-round is basically summer. These places are known for not having a lot of rainfall. That's why making sure your irrigation system is repaired is important. With so little rain coming in each month and year, it's more important than ever to conserve water. And just because every corner looks like a piece of the Sahara, doesn't mean that your yard has to! And the money you can save by repairing your irrigation is nothing compared to how much you'd have to pay on your bill if it continues.
