How do I find someone to fix my sprinkler system?

You can find a sprinkler repair professional by conducting a little bit of online research. This gives you access to their ratings and customer reviews. Some customers will even submit photos of their sprinkler systems that were fixed by the pros. But before you hire a professional, contact them. Ask them questions about their expertise, tell them about your sprinkler problem and request free cost estimates.

How do I increase water pressure in my lawn sprinklers?

Figure out why your sprinkler has low water pressure and determine if you need to make any repairs. There could be an issue with the valve, a leak or the sprinkler heads may need cleaning. If the water pressure is low in your house as well (check your water pressure regulator), the problem may be with the municipal water supply.

Why is one sprinkler zone not working?

One sprinkler zone could be malfunctioning for several reasons, although the most obvious one — a closed valve — is often the culprit. Check to see if the main system valve is closed. It’s easy to forget to turn this back on after repairs. Other causes for failed sprinkler zones are electrical issues within the valve, timer, wiring or solenoid. A common reason is a bad connection that needs to be re-soldered.

Why won’t my sprinklers pop up?

Several problems can prevent sprinkler heads from popping up. For example, here are a few possible culprits: 

  • The valve is partially closed.
  • There’s dirt, sand or debris between the sprinkler’s cap and riser. 
  • There's low water pressure.
  • There are leaks in the water line.

I had a broken pipe in my sprinkler that Randall found quickly, and was able to come back a couple of days later and repair. Transaction was easy and I would use him again if I have any other sprinkler system issues.

Randall did an exceptional job on my sprinkler system. We moved in to a house that had numerous problems with the sprinkler system. Randall arrived 5 minutes early, I showed him the control box and pointed out a couple obvious problems, and that’s all the info he needed. About two hours later he was done and had replaced over 12 heads and repaired a few. He then walked me though the use of my control box, and even went ahead and programmed it for me turning off two zones that weren’t necessary. And the cost of the repair was below what I was anticipating. Great person, great service, and I highly recommend Randall.

Project Scope: Repair leaking sprinkler valve Vendor Performance: They showed up when they said they would. They also recommended repositioning the leaking valve and adjacent valve into a valve pit which eliminated some potential future piping projects. The work was performed to my satisfaction and they even offered suggestions on ways to run my sprinkler system that would save me money. Pricing: I think the price I paid was very reasonable for the scope and quality of work delivered. I would definitely use this contractor again.
