Sprinkler Head Repair
This is one of the services that we provide the most and it also one of the most controversial topics in the sprinkler world! Sprinkler heads are the part of the sprinkler that is responsible for spraying the water that is being driven up through the pipe. As they are the part of the sprinkler system that is exposed to elements the most you can expect it to also be the part of the sprinkler system that tends to break down the most! We want to help you fix and prevent this type of problem!
Fixing or Replacing
A lot of people wonder what we do most in this type of service do we just replace or do we actually go in and fix sprinkler heads. We actually do a little bit of both. At times the sprinkler head may have just twisted a little bit and that is what is causing some trouble. Other times the head is actually just broken apart and there is just not that many options that we have left in those circumstances. Replacing a sprinkler head though is a lot more complex than what most people may actually believe!
Getting The Right Fit For Your System!
When you have a broken sprinkler head that you need to replace then, you can’t just go in and buy the first one that you find at the store and screw it on. There are a couple of measurements that you have to take into account to make sure that the head will fit. Also, if the head is going to be required to twist and turn, then we have to make sure that the new one that we install can handle this type of movement. The concepts are simple, we just have to make sure that we don’t miss anything when we are out shopping for a new sprinkler head!
It Was Made From Cheap Plastic!
Traditional irrigation systems came equipped with iron sprinkler heads that would last a lifetime. These sprinkler heads though were not as mobile and or versatile as the ones that we have around today. We have come across plenty of clients that called us to replace all of their sprinkler heads because to their point of view they were made out of cheap plastic. We don’t want to throw every single sprinkler manufacturer under the bus here. We know though, that sprinkler heads come in very different presentations and overall quality. Those are things that you have to watch out for when installing your sprinkler system.
We have talked about the different materials that these sprinkler heads are usually made out of. This is where a lot of the durability issues could come into play. The type of material that you have the sprinkler head made out of could really affect the durability of the object. We can work with many different types of sprinkler heads. So, we can let you know the estimated lifespan for each of the sprinklers that we place or repair!
