In South Florida, homeowners know that sprinkle systems get put to work. It’s really only during the winter when your sprinklers can have a break. Therefore, it makes a lot of sense that you practice basic care tips and maintenance to keep things working year-round and to steer clear of easily avoidable damage that requires sprinkler repair in West Palm Beach.
A monthly inspection or sprinkler repair in West Palm Beach allows you to identify and replace any broken or worn down parts. No matter how expensive your sprinkler system is, regular inspection of the entire system for misdirected sprinkler heads, broken lines, or leaks is important. If left unfixed, it will lead to a waste of water and money.
For instance, if you see that a part of your lawn is dry and another has puddles, your sprinkler heads may be misdirected or damaged. In this situation, you’ll waste a lot of water and money.
Most sprinkler systems don’t come with a rain or freeze sensor. Therefore, you need to purchase and install it if you want to save on your water bill. A rain sensor will automatically shut off the irrigation system, allowing you to avoid wasting water and overwatering your lawn.
In spring, your lawn or garden doesn’t need as much amount of water as it does in the summer. Hence, when the temperature drops during fall, you’ll need to make adjustments to your sprinkler system. Moreover, different parts of your lawn need different amounts of water. To prevent sprinkler repair in West Palm Beach, you need to adjust the watering program of your sprinkler system according to the needs of every zone.
Installing a sprinkler system isn’t exactly easy – even more so, when it comes to maintenance. Hence, if you want your sprinkler system to last long, you need to know the dos and don’ts. Contact O'Hara Sprinkler to have a trusted professional take a look!
