Common Irrigation Problems
The most common irrigation system issues include:
- Faulty sprinkler controllers
- Water leaking from one or multiple zones
- Pump buzzing
- Pop up failure
- Incorrect head height
- Poor water pressure
- Clogged sprinkler heads
A faulty sprinkler controller can cause inconsistency in activation times, duration of activity and automatic operation due to a malfunction within the circuitry. Water leaking from one or multiple zones could be due to a defective valve diaphragm, blockage inside the valve itself or improper design/install that is affecting the valve from fully sealing. Pump buzzing indicates a problem with your sprinkler’s relay system which is an audible static-like noise and should be addressed before it leads to bigger issues. Pop up failure can come in many forms but all have the same impact - inactive heads - so it's important to address any issues quickly. Incorrect head height will result in either water missing appropriate areas entirely if too high or receiving too much water when set too low; checking lawn health first is recommended when these inconsistencies present themselves. Poor water pressure typically comes from blockage, faulty hardware, broken pipes and backend issues; pump-fed systems may suffer suction leaks preventing steady flow to certain zones as well. Clogged sprinkler heads may prevent them rising properly or consistent flow of water leaving behind tell tale signs that need attention. We look out for these signs when troubleshooting any kind of irrigation system issue.
