Irrigation systems are an excellent solution to keep the yards of residents in Medford, OR in top condition while saving water. Once installed, one of the great advantages of such a system is that it can be automated via the use of sensors and programs, requiring little input from homeowners on a day-to-day basis. However, like any other system in your house, irrigation systems require maintenance every so often. Here are some signs that your system may be in need of repairs.
- Increased Water Bill
If your water bill has suddenly increased by a noticeable amount, this could be due to an issue with your irrigation. This should be addressed immediately, as the cause could be a leak in your system, which can cause all sorts of expensive damage to your property if left unchecked.
- Malfunctioning Sprinkler Heads
If you notice any sputtering from your sprinklers, it could be a problem with the water pressure. Alternatively, it could also indicate a physical issue with the sprinkler head.
- Uneven Distribution of Water
Dry or waterlogged patches in your yard are certainly not normal and should be investigated right away. This could be due to a leak, an issue with the sprinkler heads, or a programming error.
- Discolored Water
Finally, if the water itself is discolored or dirty, this could indicate an issue with your pipes. Any contaminants in the water could prove extremely hazardous to the plant life in your yard and should be addressed immediately.
