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.

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.

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 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.

Mr. Nicasio responded to my inquiry within an hour. He reworked my entire sprinkler system and repaired a leak for only $90. I will use him whenever I have problems in the future.

It was a pleasure in every way to meet and work with Jose. His advance communication in setting up the appointment was excellent. He is very courteous. He repaired the damaged wiring from the timer to the sprinkler valves. He replaced two worn-out valves, capped off an used and leaking valve, and replaced a leaking sprinkler head. I will definitely contact Jose again when in need of repairs to our again irrigation system. I recommend him highly.

Eduardo, Oscar, and their crew were absolutely wonderful! They redid our outdated front yard irrigation system and replaced old lawn sprinklers with a drip system that better suits our needs. They also helped add an extra sprinkler head to our small backyard lawn, as well as add an extended drip line around the border. They worked efficiently, and were done in about 5 hours total. Eddie was very responsive, he came first for a consultation and estimate, and within a week, we had the work done! Scheduling with Eddie was very easy, and during our consultation, he listened to what I wanted and offered very good solutions. I’ve spoken with another irrigation repair service, and all they did was tell me about how shoddy the old system was that the previous homeowner installed, and didn’t offer me much in terms of actionable solutions. Eddie, however, was very good at explaining the best and simplest solution for our situation, and the work was done superbly. He inspected the work with me after his crew finished up, and made sure I was happy with the results. Super professional, and prices were quite reasonable. I will definitely hire Eddie, Oscar, and their crew again for other stuff when we need it!
