Looking for irrigation repair or service? Some Kelowna neighborhoods have endless, fanatically manicured lawns. These beautiful lawns aren’t easy to come by in our naturally dry climate. Homeowners spend a lot of time mowing, weeding and trimming, in order to maintain their lawn’s lush and natural beauty. Many homeowners utilize the convenience of automation, which helps provide consistent and early morning watering. Irrigation systems are definitely one of the secrets behind having a beautiful lawn, as temperatures can easily soar beyond 40c in summer months, and Kelowna areas can experience weeks without any precipitation.
Irrigation Trouble Shooting
Sprinklers that become clogged are usually the result of trapped dirt or debris in the nozzle area, and as a result, little or no water is able to escape while the irrigation system is running. Inspect the nozzle head and see if you can easily remove and rinse out the filter. Typically, a quick cleaning is all you’ll need to resolve this issue.
Other issues with irrigation systems include sprinkler leaks, which significantly impact the efficiency of your entire distribution system. Typically these leaks can be caused by natural age, causing seals to wear down, or through lawn mowing or related maintenance equipment that comes into contact with the sprinkler head. A basic repair can be carried out by simply replacing the seal of the sprinkler head, while advanced problems with the rotor and mechanism may create the need to replace the entire head.
