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.

Rafael was very professional, knowledgeable, and pleasant. I will most certainly use him again. He repaired an inoperable sprinkler zone quickly without damaging plants I just planted. We are using him again soon to replace a sprinkler system control box and evaluate our entire sprinkler system.

Tony and his partner did an excellent job in checking and repairing my sprinkler system —with little disruption to the lawn. He was prompt and honest in his assessment of my system — the initial concern did not require any repair. Before leaving, Tony tested all stations to ensure all heads were working properly and reprogrammed the system for more efficiency. He also provided tips to save on water and recommended additional work that could be performed later that would be beneficial in the long run. I will definitely call on Montiel Sprinklers for future maintenance and repair; and I would highly recommend this company to anyone seeking work on their sprinkler system at a very reasonable price. Thank you again, Tony.

I had 2 leaking sprinklers and high speed irrigation repaired them same day. That's what I call high speed. And they showed me where the sprinkler shut off is so I can shut off the system before a deep freeze. Would recommend to anyone who need sprinkler serviced.

David responded immediately to our request for sprinkler repair work. He was at our house the next day and quickly diagnosed the issue. He and his colleague then fixed the issue and walked us through helpful tips about sprinkler system usage. I highly recommend David.

Our sprinkler system was leaking all night and the leak was fixed (broken solenoid apparently). Best outcome and a minimal repair. I know who to call down the road for prompt and thorough landscaping work! We also had a few sprinklers capped, no problems. Would recommend!

David and his team responded promptly to a request for a repair after a previous contractor could not fix the issues I was having with Sprinkler System. Although the job was much more than I was budgeting (minor sprinkler job turned into extensive value repair due to previous home owner not getting proper repair), he was very detailed and worked with me on pricing/payment. Job was started on immediately and resolved within the next business day. Would hire again.

Great job! Most impressive! Charlie responded to my request last night at 10:00 pm and was here at noon today repairing three damaged sprinkler heads- he checked the entire sprinkler system and revamped my sprinkler zones. He did an excellent job, was extremely fast working and professional and went “above and beyond the call of duty”. I recommend highly him for any landscape needs!!!

Corey explained different ways to address the issues with my sprinkler system including the pro/cons/costs of each option. He took the time to explain how and why he would do the work and answered all my questions along the way. A true professional who I would highly recommend without hesitation for any and all sprinkler repairs.

I would highly recommend Hugo for any of your irrigation needs. Hugo was prompt, professional and knowledgeable; ensuring my sprinkler system was functioning properly. He did not attempt to sell me new sprinkler heads when it was a matter of repairing some. And for those needing to be replaced, he replaced. I would also add my experience with Hugo is he is honest and very reasonably priced.

This company performed quality work on my sprinkler system with professionalism, responsiveness, punctuality and reasonable cost. Upon their arrival, as I was talking with them about my problems one guy was at the control panel and the other guy was walking the yard locating all the sprinkler heads, etc. I had to keep up with them because they started working immediately. They fixed several sprinkler heads, stopped 4 leaks and put my yard back together and set my control panel and they even knew the days my area is allowed to use the sprinkler system, WOW! I'm telling you, these guy are the best. I was so impressed with them because I had a new fence installed and the company build the fence 12 inches from the property line which meant I had 3 sprinkler heads on the other side of my fence. These guy said they could fix the sprinkler heads without taking the fence apart and they did. If I have another problem with the sprinkler system "I'M GOING TO CALL THEM." Believe the reviews . . . because I'm a customer for life and will recommend them to all my friends, neighbors and family. THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU. Should have taken before pictures as proof of my problem because after pictures only show a nice yard. I forgot to mention that they repaired some of the sprinkler heads and didn't nickel and dime me.

This company is a complete joke. They charge an $85.00 service fee for the first hour to diagnose and repair. This is not a problem for me. However they come and "fix" the sprinkler system, only for it to fail not even 24 Hrs later. I call back to let them know and they want to charge me another $85.00 just to diagnose the exact same issue that they supposedly "fixed". Thank you for wasting my time & money

Joe did a fantastic job fixing a sprinkler head that needed repair along my driveway due to a rouge tire. He also audited my entire system and fixed another faulty head for a fraction of what competitors are asking. But wait there’s more! He also (without having to be asked) made sure my system control box was configured properly and had it all ready to go for the coming Spring months. His responsiveness and affordable rates, along with his professionalism and warrantied work, will keep me coming back to Joe for all of my irrigation needs!

Great service, very knowledgeable technician! I personally could not be any happier. After purchasing my most recent home, I had no idea how to function my sprinkler system; therefore, I contacted Daniel. He showed me how to schedule my irrigation controller module and conducted multiple repairs on my irrigation zones. I definitely recommend hiring Daniel for any services he specializes in. I know I will be hiring him again in the near future! *two thumbs up*

Efrain is absolutely the best, look no further. This is our first time using him and we are very glad that we found him. He is in our contact list now. Efrain did a fantastic job on repairing our sprinkler system. The T coupling had come loose and instead of doing a shortcut and just gluing it back together, he replaced all the necessary parts with new ones and didn't charge us any more than others were going to do the repair only. He was on time and communicated well. He is professional and honest, which is often hard to find. We could not be happier with his service.

What you need to know about sprinkler repairs.

How do I fix my sprinkler system?

Your sprinkler system is an intricate network of control valves, wire connections and PVC pipes. This sophisticated system could malfunction in a number of ways. For this reason, sprinkler system repair isn't typically a DIY job.

How do you fix a broken sprinkler pipe?

If some areas of your lawn are wetter than others, you may have a broken sprinkler pipe. You should contact a professional to inspect your broken pipe. They will need to find the rupture and turn off the sprinklers. They may also dig up the broken section of pipe and use a PVC cutter or hacksaw to cut the broken section out and then replace it with a section of pipe that's a bit shorter to allow the connectors to fit well.

How do you fix a short in a sprinkler system?

If you think there's an electrical short in your sprinkler system, it's best to call a professional sprinkler repair service. They have the proper tools and credentials to safely fix the problem. The combination of electricity and water can cause severe injury if you aren't well-versed in sprinkler repair. 

How do you find a leak in your sprinkler system?

Finding a leak in your sprinkler system may be as simple as looking for a swampy area of your lawn. If you think your system is leaking due to an elevated water bill, but you can't find physical evidence, it's time to call a professional water sprinkler repair person. 

What causes sprinklers to lose pressure?

If your sprinklers have low pressure, your line could be broken, clogged with grass or dirt — or you may have water supply issues or a malfunctioning backflow preventer valve. Call a yard sprinkler repair service to help you diagnose the problem. They can figure out why your sprinklers lack pressure. 

How do you know if a sprinkler solenoid is bad?

Your water sprinkler valve solenoid may be bad if your system is leaking, you have low water pressure or the system continues to run even when it’s off. 

Can a sprinkler system leak when off?

Yes, a sprinkler system may leak a bit immediately after you turn it off. If you’re concerned about flooding or safety, shut off the water to your system using the main shutoff valve until you can locate and solve the problem — or get a pro to come take a look at the issue. 

How do I find a broken sprinkler wire?

If you’re familiar with and comfortable with using one, a pulser may help you find a broken sprinkler wire on your own. If not, contact a Thumbtack professional for help.
