Top Signs Your Irrigation System Needs Repair in 2024

Failing to recognize a broken irrigation system can become a nightmare. After all, when there are broken sprinklers and pipes, your water bill will skyrocket. Plus, all that water is going to be wasted. Then there's a mess to think about. Fortunately, there are noticeable signs to pay attention to.

The following are signs you need irrigation system repair:

Leaks: Water leaks need immediate attention. Contact us at the first sign of any leak. 

A sudden increase in your water bill: Cracked or broken sprinkler pipes and broken sprinkler heads can cause leaks and an increase in your water bill. A hole in a drip irrigation line, faulty irrigation valve, or maladjusted time controller settings can also lead to high water bills. 

There is too much water in the valve boxes: Each zone within a sprinkler system has a valve box in the landscape. If you've noticed excess water on the valve box, there may be a leak, faulty irrigation valve, broken pipes, or another issue. 

Low water pressure: If you've noticed low water pressure coming from your irrigation system, there could be a leak somewhere in the system. 

Low water pressure is related to:

        • Leaky sprinkler pipes or heads
        • Leaky irrigation valves
        • Leaks in the water main
        • Holes in the drip system
        • Damaged irrigation valve
        • Broken pressure regulator

Dry, yellow, or brown patches on the lawn: Brown patches of grass typically mean the lawn isn't getting enough water. Yellow patches usually indicate that the lawn receives too much water, possibly from a leak. 

Specific irrigation zones aren't starting up: Many irrigation issues are caused by clogged, worn-out, or damaged components. However, electrical hiccups can also create zone-specific problems which may require recalibration. 

Components of an Irrigation System That Are Most Likely to Get Damaged

Landscape watering begins with your design and the equipment installed. What's more, certain components will experience wear and tear, and that's when you need to call a professional for irrigation system repair. You'll want to keep an eye out for the following irrigation system components:
