How often should lawn sprinkler heads be replaced?

Thumbtack Editors

The rate of replacing your sprinkler heads depends on the quality of the part. Inexpensive sprinkler heads may be more attractive upfront, but keep in mind that they’re likely to need replacement more often. Spending more money on higher-quality heads may save you not only on parts but also on the cost to bring a repair technician out. Sprinkler heads typically last between 10 and 14 years.
