While lawn sprinklers are a great investment, getting the best results from them is not always easy. Fortunately, we at Laurdane Associates are here to help you troubleshoot your way around any problems you might run into with your sprinklers. One of the most common areas where lawn sprinkler troubleshooting is necessary is in getting your sprinklers ready for the spring, so we have put together this article to offer a few tips.
- Wait for the Spring Thaw – In our experience, many people run into trouble when preparing their sprinklers for spring because they don’t wait until the last freeze has passed. This aspect of lawn sprinkler troubleshooting can be difficult because weather prediction is not 100% accurate, but we encourage you to do all you can to avoid turning on your sprinklers until you are sure the ground will not freeze again after the system is active.
- Check All Sprinkler Heads – Because we recommend not turning on your sprinklers until spring is well and truly here, there’s a chance your grass could grow over your sprinkler heads while you wait. Our second tip for lawn sprinkler troubleshooting is to inspect each sprinkler head before turning the system on—if any of the sprinkler heads have grass or weeds growing on them, remove the growth to prevent obstructions to the flow of water.
- Consult Experts – Our third tip for lawn sprinkler troubleshooting, whether you’re getting ready for spring or experiencing issues at any time of year, is to remember you don’t have to do it alone. If you run into a problem with your sprinklers, don’t hesitate to give us a call so we can take a look. You can count on us to figure out what’s wrong and to provide the effective solutions you need.
