Winter and What it Does for Sprinklers

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Snow is in the forecast and this is good news if you like to ski. It is not so much good news for your sprinklers. Winterizing sprinklers is when the remaining water in the pipes is blown out emptying the pipes of any leftover water. This prevents ice forming from expanding which will cause the pipe to burst.

With sprinklers, it is better to be safe than sorry. Sprinkler Master is there for your winterization needs, and our experts will help get your system ready to last the winter

Don’t wait call today!

How to Remove Dry Spots from your Lawn in Colorado Springs

Causes of Dry Spots

Improperly Adjusted Sprinkler Heads

Sprinkler systems are usually designed to keep your grass green and well-watered throughout the year, and usually they do a good job of that! But oftentimes when a sprinkler system is getting old or is just not quite installed right, dry spots can occur.

To tell if your sprinkler system could be the culprit of your dry spots in your lawn, run your sprinkler system! When the zone where the dry spot is runs, inspect it. Watch to see if water reaches where the dry spot is. If you're not getting enough spray to that area, than a sprinkler head might need to be adjusted. If there's no way to adjust the sprinkler to reach, then you may even need to add a sprinkler head to the zone!

Need help installing a new sprinkler head? Call Dr. Sprinkler at (719) 357-6682!

Insect/Pest Damage

Dry spots aren't always caused by sprinklers or a lack of water. Occassionally insects can be the cause, and that can be extremely frustrating! These dry spots can vary in size and severity, but if you know that water is reaching an area, and it just won't get green? Try using a pesticide that won't harm your lawn! Ask your local hardware or plant store for advice, and they can point you in the right direction.

Other Tips

If these haven't solved your problem, there are still many more causes. From suburned grass and soil that won't take moisture to improper fertilizer habits, the list might never seem to end. But remember that your grass is a plant, and it does need to be cared for. Make sure that your lawn is aerated regularly, has good ph levels in the soil, and is getting the right nutrients from fertilizers. Always make sure your grass has enough water to be happy, green and lush.

Remember that if you take care of your lawn, it will take care of you! From looking good, to being comfortable to walk on, to even lowering the temperature of your property, a good lawn is extrememly beneficial to have.

For all your irrigation needs, remember, Colorado Springs Dr. Sprinkler is here to help!

How To Fix a Broken Sprinkler Head

How to Replace a Sprinkler Head (with videos at the bottom of the page)

Sprinkler systems are amazing tools. They save us time, save our grass, and can even save water. But every once in a while there's something that has to be fixed.

Do you need to replace a sprinkler head in your sprinkler system? Don't worry. There are a few ways to do this fast, and easy.

The easiest way for you is to find a sprinkler expert near you. If you don't know how to replace it yourself, you risk doing damage to your home and property. Any repairs you try to do yourself are done at your own risk, but if you call a sprinkler technician to do it for you, they don't only know what they're doing, but they should also be licensed and insured, giving you an extra layer of protection.

Call Dr. Sprinkler at (801) 988-9671 to get your sprinkler heads replaced quickly by the professionals in Colorado Springs!

 
 

How Do I replace a Sprinkler Head Myself?

If you're interested in learning how to replace a sprinkler head yourself, just do so at your own risk. Dr. Sprinkler is not responsible for any damage you do to your own property attempting DIY fixes.

If you still want to learn how to replace a sprinkelr system, it's relatively simple. The first step is to recongize what type of sprinkler it is you're trying to replace. A pop-up sprinkler are little sprinklers that spray in a fan, and don't rotate or move at all. A rotor sprinkler is a slightly larger sprinkler that pops up and rotates smoothly on gears to spray in an arc. And finally, an impact sprinkler will have a hammer that goes back and forth, knocking the sprinkler in an arc.

Want Help with your Sprinklers? Call Dr. Sprinkler in Colorado Springs!

Not in Colorado Springs? Find Dr. Sprinkler Near You!

Once you've determined the type of sprinkler you need to replace, take the body of the sprinkler (the housing part that stays still at the bottom of a sprinkler, not the part that pops up and down), wiggle it around back and forth to compress the soil around the sprinkler, and then unscrew the sprinkler counterclockwise off of the fitting below (again by the housing, not the part that moves up and down). When this comes out of the ground, get a replacement sprinkler that has the same size fitting thread on the bottom. If the threaded hole on the bottom of the replacement sprinkler is different than the original, it won't fit into the same place.

If the sprinkler's fitting hole is the same size, simply put the new sprinkler in the same hole, and turn clockwise until the sprinkler is tight. From here, all you need to do is adjust the sprinkler! For more information, watch the videos below!
