Sprinkler Repairs &
Regular System Checks

Irrigation systems are complex arrays of moving and static components. From electrical disruptions to tree roots, lawn mowers to poor fittings from your old company – problems can arise.

Some of the most common sprinkler system problems include:

  • Leaky heads
  • Weeping valves
  • Restricted pipes
  • System not turning on
  • Controller malfunction

Sprinkler repair services can be scheduled directly, but many times the cause is not immediately obvious. This is where our robust, thorough system check comes in.

Our zone-by-zone audit begins with a survey of the property to check each individual sprinkler head for rotation, signs of leakage, proper nozzle application, and much more. Adjustments to spray patterns and radius are also taken care of during this step.

After all zones have been checked, our recommendations are discussed in detail. Advantage Irrigation always implements repairs and adjustments with the goal of conserving water and saving the most money for our customers.

Finally, the rain sensor is checked both for functionality and proper placement. Great advances have been made with rain sensors, including those with wifi irrigation controllers, but it is still important to place this technology in the optimal location.

Whether it’s a direct repair service call or a scheduled quality check, you can trust Advantage Irrigation to keep your sprinkler system running effectively and efficiently. Based out of Medway, MA, we also serve Medfield, Brookline, and beyond!

Frequently asked questions

Common signs that your sprinkler system may need repair include uneven watering (e.g., dry spots or overly wet areas), a significant increase in your water bill, low water pressure, leaking sprinkler heads, or a system that won’t turn on or off. It’s important to address these issues promptly to prevent further damage and water wastage.

It’s recommended to have your sprinkler system inspected at least once a year, typically in the spring before peak watering season begins. This ensures that any winter damage is addressed, and the system is ready for efficient operation. However, if you notice any issues like those mentioned above, you should seek repair services immediately.

While minor issues like adjusting sprinkler heads or replacing a broken one can often be handled by homeowners, most repairs are best left to professionals. They have the knowledge and tools to diagnose and fix a variety of problems, from leaks and pressure issues to electrical and timing malfunctions. Hiring a professional can save you time, prevent further damage, and ensure your system operates at peak efficiency.

The cost to repair a sprinkler system can vary widely depending on the nature and extent of the problem. Minor repairs, like replacing a sprinkler head or fixing a leak, may cost anywhere from $50 to $150. However, more complex repairs involving the replacement of valves, pipes, or wiring can cost several hundred dollars. Regular maintenance can help prevent some of these more costly repairs.
