Keeping things fresh and green in Southern Nevada is quite the challenge. You may have a feeling that something isn’t right, but you don’t know if it’s the climate, a side effect of seasonal watering restrictions, or something wrong with your watering setup.
Here are five sure signs that you need irrigation repair.
- An Outsized Water Bill
- Changes In Water Pressure
- Leaking Valves
- Malfunctioning Sprinkler Heads
- Uneven Watering Patterns
1. Unexpectedly High Charges
If your water bill has shot up, but nothing has changed in terms of your usage pattern, something is wrong. It could be an underground leak, or it might be an issue with your pressure regulator. Regardless, our landscapers can diagnose the problem and get you fixed up in short order.
2. Don’t Ignore High Or Low Pressure
When your irrigation system has too much or too little pressure, it needs to be fixed quickly. Pressure issues could be regulator-related or due to underground pipe problems.
You don’t want to get fined for overwatering or kill your plants by not watering enough, so when the pressure seems haywire, it’s better to deal with it straight away.
3. Valves Should Drip On Schedule
Drip irrigation is big in the Las Vegas valley. It allows slow and steady distribution to minimize waste and maximize water absorption by grass, trees, and other plants. Leaking drip or sprinkler valves, on the other hand, are a sure sign of trouble.
Some signs of leakage include dampness around the pressure regulators and water coming out of the valves when the system is off.
4. Sprinkler Heads Spraying Strangely
Water should emit in a precise pattern. If your sprinkler heads start to sputter or spray unevenly, several things could be wrong. It might be a water pressure problem, or something could be wrong with the valves. There could also be cracks or clogs in the heads themselves. When in doubt, call a landscaping company for help.
5. Uneven Irrigation Is A Problem
Your system should be programmed to distribute water evenly and according to each zone’s needs. If you have areas that appear to be soaked and others that don’t seem to be getting any water at all, then something isn’t right.
You might have broken valves or sprinkler heads or a problem with underground pipes.
