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 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.

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.

Great repair work and advice on my sprinkler system.

Ronnie did a great job of repairing the PVB on my sprinkler system

I recently used Intelligent Watering Systems for troubleshooting and repairing our sprinkler system. I have to say this was the best contractor or service provider of any kind I have ever hired. Ronnie was amazing and resolved some major and difficult issues we had developed, with ease and simplicity and saved me from needing to destroy my driveway and flagstone walkway. Price was very fair. I recommend anyone call Ronnie with Intelligent Watering Systems when you need repairs or maintenance to your system.

Francisco helped repair the back flow preventer on my sprinkler system. His team did a great job in getting the right part and installing it.

I was very pleased. They came out quickly and saved the day for us. The home was listed to be sold in a few days, but the sprinkler system needed repair.

The repair was acceptable however the follow-up visit to check that the system was working properly did not occur. Contractor showed up on own accord and just turned the system on. Unfortunately, customer satisfaction did not appear to be important. We will look for a different sprinkler repair company in the future.

Brenden & Drew quickly located the source of my primary sprinkler system issue and found a few others that I had missed. Repairs were made efficiently and I’m back to watering my lawn & beds.

My foundation repair resulted in multiple breaks in the sprinkler system pipes and several cuts in the electrical wiring. I hired Ronnie to help figure out the problem and piece it all back together. He did a great job of investigating what happened and where, and then quickly jumped into repairing. He has restored full sprinkler coverage and even improved visibility of the valves in case I need to access them in the future. He’s honest about his time spent on the job and very transparent about the cost of the job. Would highly recommend.

Mike got our system running again for summer. We had to replace the control panel, locate valve box, replace sprinkler heads, and he even repaired a broken pipe caused by another drainage job. Mike is very knowledgeable & was patient with us when setting up the Rainbird iphone app. We plan to call Mike for all future repairs. Thanks for all the help!

Amigos Landscaping did an awesome job for me today. I needed them for one problem and they discovered another problem and repaired all of them. They are courteous and very professional. They took the time to explain the problem and what needed to be done to repair the problem. I will be using them to do future maintenance and preventative work for our sprinkler system to avoid future problems. Looking forward to working with them. Thank you!

David was the ultimate professional. He was on time to all meetings, and he and his father in law completed a lot of work in a short amount of yoke. David honoured his initial price quote and didn't push upsells. They were prompt and professional, and they checked their work thoroughly every step of the way. We will use then for future sprinkler system repairs without hesitation.

I hired Greg the day after the freeze to fix an active leak on my sprinkler. He did come that day and stopped the leak, which was excellent. Unfortunately, he did not actually repair the problem. He didn't think I needed a new vacuum breaker which it turns out I did, so as soon as I turned on the new valve he installed water poured out of the system. It was sloppy work with glue all over the system and Greg has consistently put off coming back to fix it despite me repeatedly following up and him repeatedly saying he would come back. I would not use him again.
