Sprinkler Repair Services: What to Do in an Emergency

Keep Your Sprinklers Running Well | (480) 420-0902

Picture it if you will.  You’ve got the windows open.  You’re enjoying the fall weather, then you hear the sound of water running.  You check through the house.  No one left a sink on.  Then you see it out the window, the dreaded yard fountain. You have a broken sprinkler.  Do  you know what to do if your sprinkler breaks?

First off, stay calm.  Go find the shutoff valve for your water.  It will be on the outside of the house, near the garden spigot.  Switch it off. Now, go and take a look at your sprinkler system.  See if there is more than one leak.    Then call a sprinkler repair service in the Surprise area.  Don’t try to fix your sprinkler yourself.

Why You Shouldn’t Try to Fix Your Sprinkler Yourself

We get it.  You want to fix your problem and you want to save money.  However, if you don’t know what you’re doing, then you can make your problem into a much worse problem.  Sprinkler systems are under pressure, and as such, everything has to be properly fitted and installed.  If not, what was one yard fountain could be two or even three fountains.  And you could find yourself in a world of trouble, and not just with your neighbors.  The next part of this series will explore the trouble a broken sprinkler can cause.  For now, all you need to know is that you want to call in a professional sprinkler repair service in Surprise.

This concludes part two of our series on sprinkler repair. Be sure to read part one and part three as well.

Sprinkler Repair Services Part 1: Why You Should Call

Part one of a series on sprinkler repair services explores why you should get it done this fall.

Whatever you do, don’t ever try to do sprinkler repair in Tolleson by yourself.  A lot can go wrong if you try.  The fall is actually a good time to get your sprinkler looked at.  Most sprinkler systems are made of one of three materials: metal pipes,  PVC, or some combination of both.  And both materials have their pluses and minuses.

PVC is a plastic, and is fairly resilient and tough, particularly if it’s buried underground.  PVC is also very inexpensive to purchase and install, which makes it desirable to a lot of homeowners.  However, in Arizona, PVC can become brittle when exposed to the high summer temperatures.  That leads us to our next option which is metal pipes.  Metal sprinklers are a bit more pricey, however, Metal pipes are a bit sturdier, however, over a period of years or decades, they can suffer from metal fatigue, and eventually start to experience trouble as well.   As sprinkler systems whether metal or plastic are under pressure, the expansion and contraction of pipes with temperature changes can put a strain on the pipes until finally, whichever the weakest point is will give out.

Repair Your Sprinkler in the Tolleson Area

At that point, you have no choice but to call a sprinkler system repair service in Tolleson to fix the problem. As to why, it’s all too easy to mess up a system.  One fixture not properly attached can cause your sprinkler to literally pop a fixture. So if you need to repair your sprinkler, call in a professional service.
