How to Tell if Your Lawn Sprinklers Are Leaking
Leaking lawn sprinklers waste a lot of water and increase your water bill, along with damaging your lawn and garden. If you notice these signs, you’ll want to call a lawn sprinkler repair company right away:
1. Muddy patches in your grass or garden that never seem to dry out
2. Water running down the sidewalk or driveway when your sprinklers are in operation
3. Plants that look overwatered or that die (check for wilted or yellow leaves but damp or wet soil)
Two Kinds of Sprinkler System Leaks: Continuous vs. Intermittent
A continuous leak happens in your sprinkler system’s mainline. It leaks all day, every day and will run up your water bill! Fortunately, these leaks are easy to identify, so you can have them fixed right away.
An intermittent leak only leaks when a particular zone is running. This pesky leak will still waste money and ruin your landscaping, but it can be challenging to find.
Leaks are often caused by landscape maintenance equipment, construction/remodeling work, or children and pets playing in the yard. Sometimes, though, parts just wear out and break. It’s a good idea to occasionally walk your property to see if there are signs of a leak in your sprinkler system.
