Although it may require occasional maintenance, a well-maintained sprinkler system can last between 15 and 20 years. However, over time, your irrigation and lawn watering systems may deteriorate. Therefore, knowing the warning signs indicating that it is time to replace your irrigation system is crucial. In the following blog, we will look further at the following warning signs.

Constant Leaks From Your Irrigation System

If you have an irrigation system, you may face leaks at some point, especially if the system is old. These leaks often occur in the mainline, causing a drop in performance. Although small leaks within sprinklers, valves, or nozzles are easily fixed, mainline leaks can be challenging to repair. Leaks in mainlines can reduce the water pressure, leading to insufficient water supply to the valves and sprinkler nozzles for distribution. In such cases, replacing the system may be the best solution. Also, if your sprinkler heads continue to leak even after multiple repairs, consider upgrading them. An upgrade will help you save money in the long run, as you won’t have to spend time and money on frequent repairs.

Issues With Water Pressure

If your irrigation system is not projecting water as efficiently as before, it could indicate it needs some assistance. This issue could be due to chips or cracks in the sprinkler head. To address this problem, it is recommended that irrigation professionals at Aqua-Bright assess the situation. We can determine whether a repair or complete system replacement is necessary.

High Water Bills 

Have you noticed a steady increase in your water bills? This could be due to an inefficient irrigation system. The cause of such inefficiency can be attributed to poor installation or decreased efficiency due to age. A less efficient system requires more water to get the job done, which results in a sudden and prolonged hike in your water bill. 

Your Irrigations System Is Aging 

As your system gets older, it becomes more susceptible to breakdowns. It is crucial to keep track of the warning signs, such as repeated damage and distress, to determine if your system needs repair or replacement. In some cases, repairing an outdated irrigation system may cost more than upgrading to a new one, especially with technological advancements. If you are unsure whether your irrigation system requires repair or replacement, we can help you assess the problem and provide the best solution for your irrigation needs.
