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.

It was a pleasure meeting Sal today. He was courteous, very knowledgeable and patient. My husband had just installed a new sprinkler control system, but one zone of our system was not turning on. Sal was an excellent listener; he listened intently to how my husband had initially wired and installed the system and began to work backwards from there. He found the problem and fixed it, along with replacing and adjusting a few sprinkler heads. Should you need any repairs done on your sprinkler system, don’t hesitate to hire Austin City Irrigation. You will not be disappointed and will truly appreciate their honesty, integrity and professionalism!

I had Kyle Womack from Revive & Thrive come to repair several several sprinkler heads that were broken and he repaired them right away. He decided to run through the whole system to check if there were any other problems. In doing so, we discovered that station #2 was not coming on. He found the problem and repaired it in a fairly timely manner. He left the yard in good condition after digging a hole to repair the valve. I was very pleased with the work that he did. I will recommend him to others that may be looking for a dependable sprinkler system repair company.

Danny was great! He was able to arrive the same day hired. He quickly diagnosed the issue with my sprinklers, ran to grab the part and completed the work. He did a great job walking me though everything and conducting a thorough test after the repair. I'm very happy with his service and would definitely recommend him for sprinkler system repair and maintenance.

Sprinkler system repairs were done in a timely manner. However, we requested a receipt for the work done and never received it. Also, we requested a landscaping quote and Eli did not get back to us on this.

I would recommend Scott for sprinkler system repair. He assessed the problem quickly and worked until he got the system in good working order. He also also provided me with an invaluable list of which zones water which areas of my yard and a diagram of which valves are irrigation, main system, or neighbors property. So helpful!!

Sal was great to work with. He made an extra trip when we realized he couldn't repair my system on the first visit (I need to order a new controller). The day after the box arrived in the mail, he was back on site, getting my system back up and running. I'm adding his number to my contacts as my go to guy for sprinkler maintenance.

I contacted Hank after a bad experience with a previous irrigation company. From the beginning Hank listened to what my concerns were. He was up-front about what could and could not be done and he gave me options for the repairs to my sprinkler system. He is a hard worker, polite and I will definitely use his services again...

Hired Ray to troubleshoot a hidden valve box that was giving me a headache. Ray and Frankie showed up, found the valve, fixed it and fixed other sprinkler system repairs I had pending while he was there. Very reasonable, honest, punctual with clear communication and expectations. I would hire them again and plan to hire for other projects. World class 5 star service!

I have to say I am very impressed with the service of Juan and his team. They helped repair sprinkler damages in our front and back yard and checked our entire system and got it running like new. They also found and fixed a zone that we never knew existed. We had an issue with 2 sprinkler heads after their first visit and reached out to them and they got us on their schedule within a week and resolved the issues. I recommended them to friends and everyone in our neighborhood already and would use their service again. Thank you Juan !

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.
