Often referred to as irrigation systems, lawn sprinkler systems are vital in maintaining the upkeep of a yard. They are extremely helpful in combating discoloring, which is a primary sign that your property needs a lawn sprinkler system. It is vital to ensure that your irrigation system is serviced at least twice a year if you own a sprinkler system.
If not, you’ll almost certainly endure the challenges of using a faulty system. Investing in a new system would be wise if your lawn irrigation system is not up to par. A healthy lawn adds value to your home and makes it more appealing.
Believe it or not, several leaks can occur within your lawn sprinkler system. There are also many different types. Here are some of the common causes of a leaky sprinkler system. If you experience any of these issues, don’t hesitate to call us at 410-489-9009.
Sprinkler Head Leak on Lawn Sprinkler System
This type of leak is the most typical and usually one of the easier leaks to detect. More times than not, the leak occurs because the sprinkler head has encountered damage. Another sign of a faulty sprinkler head is that sporadic spurts of water or puddles accumulate within surrounding areas.
A sprinkler head that is clogged can also be the cause of a potential issue. You can also conduct general maintenance by cleaning the filter and nozzle within your sprinkler system.
Broken Line in System
A broken line can occur anywhere from the main line in your irrigation system to the lateral line. It is best to diagnose and detect which line in your lawn sprinkler system is damaged. You can do this by turning off and on your system. If water accumulates while your system is on or off, there is an issue with your main line. The problem lies within your lateral line if you see the water in your yard while your system is off.
Valve Leak in Lawn Sprinkler System
Valve leaks are another common issue that can lead to a leaky system. There are numerous reasons why a valve leak can occur. You could have a broken o-ring or too much pressure on your system. Lines that distribute water within your lawn sprinkler system can also become blocked over time.
Rubber material in sprinkler systems often deteriorates over time. Once that happens, there is a break within the rubber diaphragm. Addressing these particular issues is essential because any leak, regardless of size, leads to wasted water and ultimately wasted money for homeowners.
