26 Sep Frequently Asked Questions about Sprinkler Systems
Having a garden sprinkler system is essential to have a dry and green garden. There are many questions that people have when they have a sprinkler system installed in their yard. The most common question asked is, “Why do I have dry spots in my yard?” And “Do I need a smart irrigation?” Below are answers to your Frequently Asked Questions about Garden Sprinkler Systems.
Why Do I Have Dry Spots in My Yard?
When you set up your sprinkler system, the system will use an adjustment on your home to adjust the amount of water that it is delivering to your yard. You need to make sure that you water your plants and shrubs correctly. Sometimes your watering isn’t as much as you may need it to be and this will result in the leaves on your grass and flowers wilting.
Do I Need a New Sprinkler Head?
Replacing the sprinkler head on your lawn is not as difficult as some people may think. Most companies that sell sprinkler heads will provide installation instructions and the heads can be replaced for less than $100. Of course, the older the sprinkler head the more expensive it will be.
How Can I Reduce My Water Usage?
If you want to reduce your water bill, there are several options that you can try. One way is to aerate your lawn. This will allow more water to travel through the soil and stay longer.
How Can I Improve the Look of My Yard?
A new sprinkler head can change the look dramatically. Just installing a new sprinkler head or putting new strings of blooms on your deck will drastically improve the look.
Are there Different Types of Sprinkler Systems?
There are two primary categories of sprinkler systems: underground and surface. The types of systems available will depend on how much you want to spend on your irrigation system. If you have a large area to water, then you might need a system that has larger valves and other features.
What Types of Problems Might Occur with my Garden Sprinkler System?
There are many different things that can go wrong with sprinkler systems, but one of the most common is clogging. When dirt, leaves, or other debris become stuck in your sprinkler system, it can become extremely difficult to operate. Other common problems include low water pressure, overheating, and problems caused by debris falling into the sprinkler heads.
How do I Replace Parts on my Garden Sprinkler System?
The majority of garden sprinkler systems are fairly easy to replace. A few parts such as the pressure valves require special tools that are not always sold at local home improvement stores. Before you replace any part of your garden irrigation system, be sure to check with your local home improvement store or hardware store to see if they carry the part you need. You should also check on the Internet for parts.
