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 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.

Contact a pro to help you diagnose the problem and repair it.

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.

Reviews for Portland sprinkler system repair professionals
Thumbtack Customer
Tim Long and his crew were fantastic. I needed sprinkler repair(s). Tim looked at our entire system, which was 20 years old, and had it running like new. They were very careful with our property too. Tim's communications were excellent and timely. His price was very fair. I will be having Absolute Perfection back for some more work. My highest recommendation.

Tim is the guy you want for your sprinkler system job! He was responsive to my Thumbtack project request and came out on Friday evening to fit me into his schedule. Tim was knowledgable and gave me options on how to get the project done with photos to give me an idea of what to expect. He taught me about my system and how to maintain it and gave me a lot more confidence about my irrigation system in general. Tim had great communication throughout the project and to top it off, he provided great value for the work done. I wish there were bonus stars that I could award. I couldn't be happier with how the repair turned out.

I’m so very pleased! Leasing up to the work day itself, Cris was responsive to my questions, prompt in his follow up, and clear in what he would do, and when that would be. On the work day itself, he and his crew were on time, helpful in explaining what and how the work (sprinkler system repairs) would be done. After completion and clean up, my yard looked better than it had when they arrived. I am a very happy and satisfied customer!
