Signs You Need a New Sprinkler System

A healthy lawn is a happy lawn! Not only does a green lawn boost your curb appeal, but it also keeps your environment feeling good. Because your lawn requires just as much care as the rest of your home, we thought we’d put together a list of the top telltale signs you need a new sprinkler system:

You keep finding leaks
A telltale sign that you will need a new sprinkler system is if your sprinkler heads or pipes are leaking. A professional will need to come and dig up the section of the problem pipe and replace it.

Your system’s water pressure is low
Your sprinkler head can indicate signs of lower water pressure. The problem could be cracks or chips in the sprinkler head. If you notice that the issue becomes ongoing, call the professional to investigate and find a solution.

You have a poor design setup
It could be the length of the spray of a sprinkler or the lack of “head to head spacing” that can also indicate you need a new system. A poor design setup can lead to dry spots or overly saturated areas. Either way, a professional can fix the problem.

Your water bills are too high
Is your monthly water bill through the roof? Ask a home irrigation system specialist to check your system. Whether it be lower water pressure, leaks, a poor design setup, or something else, fixing the problem sooner rather than later will save you money in the long run.
