Sprinkler repair in Avondale, AZ helps you to avoid more than just a flooded flowerbed or a soggy lawn.  It also helps you to avoid an escalating series of problems.  Let’s start with your neighbors.  Put yourself in their shoes for one moment.  If you were them, how would you like your yard flooded every time one of your neighbors turns on their sprinkler?  You probably wouldn’t.  In fact if you get mad enough, you’re probably going to complain.

When the complaint comes to you as a homeowner, at that point, you are not in that much trouble.  You just call in a sprinkler repair service and voila, the problem’s solved.  Where you run into problems is if you don’t do anything about the problem and it escalates.  As to how it can get worse, read on.

Repairing a Sprinkler:  HOAs, Potential Liability, and Municipal Governments

Love them or hate them, there are plenty of home owner associations (HOAs) in Avondale.  As a result, you have to keep up your property, and if something on your property is affecting someone else’s property, such as a broken sprinkler, guess who is in trouble?  Look up the terms of your HOA.  You may have to pay a fine to them for your sprinkler repair, and if  you keep flooding someone else’s property, you could find yourself sued by your neighbor.  And what’s worse, the city and in some cases the county can also fine and/or sue you.  All of which could have been avoided if you had just called in a sprinkler repair service in Avondale.

As to how much water one broken sprinkler head can spill, consider if you will.  Sprinklers are under pressure, which means that it is very much like a high pressure hose.  You can easily have a broken sprinkler spill a dozen or so gallons of  water in mere minutes.  So hopefully you now see.  Sprinkler repair in Avondale is much cheaper than the alternatives.

Sprinkler Repair

Sprinkler repair helps to repair a sophisticated pressure system:  your sprinkler.  You want to keep your sprinklers in good condition for a lot of reasons.

Sprinkler System Repair and your HOA

If you need to repair your sprinkler, it’s never a good idea to wait.  Why?  Well, for one, your Homeowner’s Association may decide to fine you.  Homeowner’s associations are usually in place to keep property values up, even though sometimes they fail miserably.

Regardless, if you are violation of the agreement that you signed when you purchased the home, such as a sprinkler in need of repair, you could face fines of up to $500.  In addition to the HOA, you may find that you are also in trouble with the city in terms of damages, and an inordinately high water bill next month.  So sprinkler repair is not a “I’ll get around to fixing it problem.”  There is another set of reasons you want to fix it as quickly as  you can.

Sprinkler Repair and Property Damage

Water can damage untreated concrete, as well as decking and patio furniture.  It also can ruin plants that are sensitive to too much water, such as cacti or succulents.  So the cost to repair your sprinkler in Chandler may be actually cheaper than replacing your plants, decking or concrete.

Water that is left standing also acts as a perfect magnet for termites, which obviously you do not want eating away at the foundations of your  home.  Water puddles also are breeding grounds for mosquitoes, and also draw cockroaches and other pests including rats and pigeons.  So, every time you turn on the sprinkler, you’ll get a yard fountain as well as flooding on your property.  Too much water can also kill your lawn, and leave you with a mud bog instead.  All of this can come from a broken sprinkler.

So as you see, leaving problems for a better time is rarely a good idea.  And doing sprinkler repair should be towards the top of your list.

Sprinkler System Repair and your HOA

There is another reason to get sprinkler system repair, and we’ll give you a clue:  you probably send them a check every month.  That’s right your Homeowner’s Association.

Love them or hate them, homeowner’s associations are all over the US.  One of the rules that many HOAs universally seem to have is upkeep of your property.  If you have a broken sprinkler, it may be tempting to just let it slide a while.  That is until you get that lovely note from your HOA in your mailbox, and you start down a slippery slope.
Why?  Well, a broken sprinkler system floods, and usually floods places that are  the most vulnerable, the most likely to make a mess, and the places most likely to be visible, in this case, your front yard.  A couple of times, your homeowner’s association won’t notice, but if mud starts building up, or your neighbors complain, you could find yourself facing the board, and having to fix the problem on their terms, which are usually more expensive.

Calling a Sprinkler Repair Service Helps to Save Time and Money

Calling in a sprinkler repair service should be your first step, once you’ve detected the damage.  Why?  Well, unless you know full well what you’re doing, you could end up making the problem worse.  Let’s say it’s a busted sprinkler head.  You say, “I’ve got this.”  So you go to the home improvement store closest to you and find the sprinkler system aisle.  And then your eyes glaze at the bewildering number of sprinkler heads.  You pull out the broken head and try to match it, and finally call over a helpful hardware clerk.  He leads you to the right spot, and there is a nice cardboard hopper that’s empty.  He checks the part and tells you it’s on back order, and he can get it for you…in 6-8 weeks.

In that time, you will have most likely gotten a second notice from your HOA to fix the problem, or face legal action.  You could also make the problem worse in another way, by putting the head on wrong, or accidentally tripping a valve.  Then instead of one yard fountain, you have a dozen.  Avoid these scenarios by calling a sprinkler repair service in Chandler.
