Identifying Problems

You should check your sprinklers are working correctly often to avoid problems or costly spikes in your water bill. Suppose you do notice your monthly water bill is much higher than usual. This can be a key indicator that something is not working, and it may be time to call in a professional.

Sprinkler inspection can be done during regular operation, or you can manually turn them on at any time. Start by ensuring the sprinkler heads are all firing in the right directions and with the proper water flow. If you notice water going in the wrong direction or speed, your sprinkler heads may need to be adjusted.

After watering, walk through your yard to check for pools of water or spots that appear highly saturated. This could indicate a leak or malfunction; it is best to call a professional to address it.

Observing your sprinkler heads and pipes is also important to check for loose or broken wires. A professional should handle all electrical repairs to ensure they are made correctly and safely.

Cleaning Sprinklers

Sprinklers require cleaning - services provided by Hot Shot Sprinkler Repair & Landscape.

Sprinkler heads will often get clogged with dirt and other particles. While you're checking for repairs, it's also a great idea to clean the sprinkler heads and filters.

To do this, sprinkler heads should be detached and soaked in rust remover for 30 minutes. Use a brush to remove the remaining debris, then rinse the sprinkler head under clean water. Before reattaching, use lubricant on all parts to prevent future buildup.

Sprinkler filters can be removed and cleaned in water. Carefully remove the filter from the sprinkler tip with a screwdriver by unscrewing it at the top. Take out the filter and dip it in clean water. Scrub any debris with a brush, then reinstall it in the sprinkler tip.

You'll want to flush your sprinkler valves regularly to avoid debris buildup. Simply remove the sprinkler heads and turn on the valve for five minutes to flush out the system. Remember to replace the head when finished!

With various versions of sprinklers available, it's a good idea to consult your owner's manual for more specific instructions on cleaning your sprinklers. Call a professional to fix or flush your system if anything appears broken or you notice leaks.

Seasonal Maintenance

A sprinkler needs maintenance and winterization in order to run smoothy - contact Hot Shot for services.

While cleaning your sprinklers and checking for leaks and damage should be a year-round activity, different seasons require different sprinkler services to keep your sprinklers watering correctly for the weather and climate.

Prepare for spring by checking that your manual drains are closed, opening your main valves, and pressurizing your mainline. A professional can thoroughly check that water is flowing correctly and assist with testing the cross-connection assembly.

Summer typically requires more irrigation due to warmer weather and decreased rainfall. Knowing exactly how long it takes to water an inch is still a good idea. Using a tuna can measure how long it takes different zones to reach an inch to avoid overwatering.

Fall requires winterization of your irrigation system to prepare for the colder months. This can be a complex process that often requires technical knowledge. Make it easy on yourself by calling in a professional to ensure your sprinklers are ready for harsher temperatures and weather.
