DIY vs Professional Irrigation System Repairs

When it comes to irrigation system repairs, it’s important to know when to call a professional.

irrigation system repairs columbus gaThis time of year, irrigation systems are getting a lot of use. With the rising temperatures, keeping your lawn watered is crucial. While there are many irrigation system repairs you can do yourself, there are some meant to be handled by a professional to ensure your irrigation system is getting the servicing it needs.

While it’s tempting to tackle any household repair yourself, do-it-yourself irrigation system repairs should be limited to nozzle replacements and rotor adjustments. Nozzles tend to get clogged over time, and won’t spray as much water if filled with debris. To replace your nozzle, simply use a flathead screwdriver to lift the riser. While keeping the riser lifted, twist to remove the nozzle. Check your screen to ensure it is still clear, or replace if needed. Screw on the new nozzle, adjust to the desired spray pattern, and drop the nozzle back into place. Depending on how many you have, replacing these can be time consuming, but are well worth it in keeping your lawn hydrated.

Most brands can require a certain tool for the adjustment, but some can be done with a flathead screwdriver. The two most common brands, Rain Bird and Hunter, have their own special tool. Their tools are much like a screwdriver and can adjust the arc, spray radius and more.

Whether you are using a special tool or flathead screwdriver, you will turn the arc clockwise or counter-clockwise to increase or decrease the arc. It’s important to only turn the screw in the direction the rotor is already turning. Going against the current direction can strip the gears and damage your rotor.

Other repairs (sprinkler head replacement, valve replacement/location, broken lines, etc) should be repaired by a professional. Locating lines and valves can be very complicated and time consuming without the right knowledge and equipment.

Outdoor Solutions of Columbus offers an annual fertilization and weed control program that consists of six applications throughout the year.

Starting with the pre-emergence Outdoor Solutions of Columbus preps your lawn for the remaining treatments. This is a chemical that will get into the soil and help stop weeds before they can start growing! Currently, Outdoor Solutions of Columbus has started the Spring application which is an insecticide treatment and a fertilization treatment. There are two more fertilizations spread out through the Summer followed by another pre-emergence application in the Fall.

Outdoor Solutions of Columbus recommends the RainBird Irrigation System to many of their clients who like to keep their landscaping looking green and full during the warmer months.

In honor of Earth day this month Outdoor Solutions of Columbus is highlighting one of their many irrigation system products that is used to not only maintain the look of your lawn, but also conserve water! The Rain Bird WR2RC Wireless Rain Sensor is one of the top-of-the-line irrigation systems that we at Outdoor Solutions of Columbus highly recommend for both residential and commercial lawns!

This product consists of a wireless unit to be mounted outside on the trim of your house. The control unit for the rain sensor ties in with your existing irrigation timer. (Rain Bird Rain Sensors can integrate with other name brand timers such as Hunter or Toro.)
You can adjust the settings to an exact amount of rain fall and when the outside sensor recognizes the rainfall it will send a signal to the timer to remain off for the day. This way your watering system does not accidentally run during a rainy day. This irrigation system minimizes unnecessary water waste! This is just one way to keep a healthy lawn all while being environmentally conscious!
