Just like healthcare professional say that you should drink 8 glasses of water a day, lawn care specialists recommend that your lawn gets two thorough soakings a week. Now, you can stand outside for two hours twice a week holding on to a hose or constantly moving a hose end sprinkler or you can do what the smart homeowners are doing, get a sprinkler system installed. In addition to reclaiming those 4 lost hours every week, you'll be getting a more uniform watering for your lawn while saving on your water bill. Our Prunedale sprinkler installation techs can have a custom system sized and installed quickly – the entire process can usually be done in less than two weeks.
Of course, most homeowners already have sprinkler systems installed. Our Prunedale sprinkler repair team is always ready to tackle those small things that can goes wrong. One pop-up head spraying out at the wrong pressure can compromise the efficiency of an entire watering zone. Our Prunedale irrigation specialists have seen this happen time and time again. Just because a sprinkler system is usually a set-it-and-forget-it tool doesn't mean it doesn't need regular maintenance to maintain top performance.
In our experience the number one reason that sprinkler systems fail is because they are not properly prepared cleared in the autumn months. If you don't call a professional in to do a complete cleaing, left over water can damage the seals and delivery lines resulting in underground breaks and cracked seals. A poorly maintained system will require major fixes before it can be used the following spring. Our Prunedale sprinkler repair team has seen this on more than one occasion.
If sprinkler heads aren't cleaned out they can become clogged with grass clippings, leaves, dirt, wrappers, torn paper and other items that are easily tossed about by the wind. This can lead to heads getting jammed, rotors failing and valves being broken. Having a simple maintenance scheduled once every three months is usually enough to prevent these pop up failures. If a head is damaged, we carry every major brand on our trucks and can replace it on the spot. This is one of our top Prunedale sprinkler repairs.
If it has been a while since your sprinkler system was installed, it probably isn't still optimized for your current lawn's needs. Foundation plantings and flower beds often have much larger plants in them than they did at the time of set-up and the height of the lawn has probably changed as well. The original heads that were installed originally often don't rise up high enough out of the dirt to effectively irrigate the land. Our Prunedale sprinkler repair techs can switch out 2 and 4 inch pop up heads for larger 6 and 12 inch models. This simple change is often all that is needed to restore coverage to your system.
There are hundreds of things that can go wrong with a system of this complexity. A single cracked valve can change the pressure settings for any, or even all, of sprinkler heads down the line. Most of the problems with sprinkler systems result in similar symptoms so our techs come fully prepared for anything. Our trucks are fitted with every make and model of sprinkler head currently available, enough to cover the Prunedale and have some left over. We also carry all of our tools to each job site. We can repair any problem, big or small, usually within a few hours of arrival. Of course, very large jobs or systems may require some extra time. Whatever the case, we will keep you apprised of the situation and an estimated completion time. Give us a call and see what a professional sprinkler repair team can do for you.

I have used their service for the last 20 years. They've never disappointed, never cancelled an appointment, and my sprinkler has always done its job.
