In this article, we will go over a few lawn sprinkler troubleshooting tips to help you get your system working properly once more.

•  Check for Damaged Sprinkler Heads- While providing lawn sprinkler troubleshooting services, one of the first places we look is at the sprinkler heads, as damaged sprinkler heads are the source of a wide variety of issues. To do this, we examine each sprinkler head, checking for damage to the plastic casing. Then, we then turn the sprinkler on and check again, looking for any sprinkler heads that don’t pop up as they should or that don’t spray water like they are supposed to.

•  Check for Damaged Pipes- Another tip for lawn sprinkler troubleshooting is to check your system for damaged pipes. If your water line is damaged, you will likely find that patches of your lawn have become soggy where water leaks out of the pipes and may even see visible pools of standing water on your grass.

•  Check for Damaged Valves- A third component to look at when troubleshooting lawn sprinkler issues is at the valves that control the flow of water into the irrigation lines. Sometimes, just the solenoid is faulty, while other times the whole valve may need to be replaced.
